Working with tasks. Task page

To make it easier to navigate and work with tasks, they are grouped by type:

  • My tasks. Here you can see all the tasks assigned to you. If a colleague assigns you a new task, a red circle with a number in it will appear next to My Tasks.
  • CRM tasks. All CRM activities for which you are responsible. This section is displayed only if the Show CRM tasks separately from others option is enabled in the user profile settings. Note that you can change the view of CRM tasks and switch between kanban and list.
  • Assisting. This section displays tasks that require your participation at certain stages. A gray circle with a number inside indicates how many tasks you are assisting on.
  • Assigned by me. All the tasks created by you are collected here.

You can filter your tasks by:

  • Active. Current tasks that require your immediate attention.
  • All. A list of your current tasks, and the tasks that you have ever performed, sorted by date.
  • Completed. This option is only available for CRM Tasks. It shows all the previously completed CRM activities.

Tasks are displayed as a table. By clicking on its columns, you can sort the tasks by title, due date, author, and date created.

You can also choose the Kanban board layout for the items in the CRM tasks section.

In this case, the tasks in the columns are automatically sorted: the tasks with the closest scheduled due time are displayed at the top of each column.

Next to the tasks with a specified due date you will see the icons. The black dot icon means that the task is not overdue, the yellow dot icon means less than a day is left before the end of the task's due date, the red dot icon appears next to overdue tasks.

Task page

Select a task from the list and open it. The task page opens.

It contains all the information necessary to get the work done: task description, attachments, due dates, participants, author and task progress.

The person who assigned the task can edit its details by clicking the pencil icon next to the field that needs editing. An entry about the changes made will be posted to the task's activity stream.

On the page side panel, you can see the task current status. When the task is done, the status will change from In progress to Completed. Tasks created in the course of a business process have a button for viewing the process map.

Reschedule in the calendar

As the task is added to the calendar you can reschedule it for another day and time. This time days does not have to coincide with the task start and end dates, it simply determines the time you want to dedicate to working on this exact task.

Let's say your superior assigns you with a task that should be completed until November 23. You take a look at your schedule and decide that you have time to work on this new task from November 19 to November 21. These are the dates that you will specify when adding the task to your calendar. If needed, you can remove the task from the calendar.

The tasks added to the calendar are included in the total number of current events for the day.

This way, the calendar shows you exactly how your time is distributed between different activities, and you can easily plan your work taking into account all the meetings and events scheduled in the calendar.
