Creating a Task
You are able to create a new task a few different ways. You can go into the overall Task Manager, go into the task manager section inside a project, or select "Create Task" in the left-hand navigation menu to create a task from anywhere in your studio.
If you go to "Task Manager," you will then need to select New Task in the upper right-hand corner.
First you will want to update the Task Name. To do this select the pencil icon at the top left of the task and a new pop-up will appear. Then you can edit what you would like the name of the Task to be and select :Save."
You are able to update the status of a task at the top left. The options are: To Do, In Progress, or Done. To change the status click on the drop down, and click on the Status you would like.
Also at the top left is the priority level. To change the priority you will click on the priority icon and it will let you select between Low, Medium, or High Priority.
There are different people that can be assigned to a Task, Assignees and Watchers. Both clients and Team members can be assigned to the task as an assignee or watcher. The Assignees are the person/people meant to do the task. While the Watchers are assigned to be able to follow along with a task as it progresses.
To add someone as an Assignee/Watcher, Click the person icon just below Assignees/Watchers. Depending on which you would like to add. Then it will show a drop down option. From here you can click on the drop down and search for names in the search box, or scroll through and click on the names you would like to add. You will know they are selected by a green check mark on the right of their name.
If you accidentally selected someone click on their name again to remove the check mark. Then select "OK" to save.
Next you can indicate when you want the task to start and when the task is due. To add the Start/End Date, select the field, then you can select the day you want.
If you would like to change the month you can select the arrows at the top right corner. To change the year you can select the month and year in the middle to then choose the year.
If you would rather type in the date, you will select the pencil icon at the bottom left to switch the view. Then you will be able to type in the date, Month/Day/Year. Of course if you would like to switch back to the calendar view you may select the calendar icon at the bottom left.
Select which project this task is assigned to. To set the project, you will select the drop down, and then select the project you would like to assign this to.
If you accidentally selected the wrong project you can use the drop down again. To remove the project you will select the X on the right of the project name.
To help with filtering, or associating a task with a view/room/category, you are able to add tags to the task. Click the tag icon on the left with the dotted box to select which tags you would like.
Here you can further describe what needs to be done for the task in a freeform way. Click inside the box to start typing, and you have a few formatting options here as well.
Lastly, click "Create" at the bottom right corner to save the task!
