Getting too Many Task Notifications??

Missing out on your day-to-day Tasks??

Quixy’s Task Organization is your saviour!!! 

Why task organization is required?

Quixy has a very flexible and easy approach to organizing tasks. When automating a business process flow in Quixy, tasks are created for various users to take action on them according to the process flow.

Now each user could have various roles in a process or he could be responsible for various processes. So, he will have multiple tasks generated for him in Quixy on a day-to-day basis.

In such scenarios, it is very much likely to miss the deadlines of important tasks and this might lead to business process disruption or even a financial loss.

To avoid such scenarios Quixy has a wonderful extension for Task Management where users can design their own view of Tasks with the help of Grouping, Filtering, and Sorting based on different criteria. This will help them see and acknowledge the assigned tasks in an organized way. This will also increase the visibility of the process for a user.

Some of the important highlights of Task Management are:

  • Sorting and Grouping on selected fields
  • Logged in user can drill-down and see all task details of his team
  • Filters to monitor tasks which are completed, pending, overdue, task aging
  • Color indicators based on due dates, overdue, aging, status of task

The article will highlight three major pillars of creating task views for better management: 

1. Grouping

Group the tasks based on different criteria like Application based, workspace based, etc. to create a drill-down view of the Tasks with groups and subgroups. 

2. Filters

Apply different filters (based on Created Date, Initiators, etc.) to see only desired Tasks in your Task View

3. Sorting

Sort your tasks based on different Fields to Quickly find and take actions on Priority Tasks

Let’s have a look at them! 

1. Group your Tasks

i. Grouping Icon is present on the top right corner of the Task Screen.

ii. If the user clicks on it, then the system provides columns to select Columns for grouping: Status, Created Date, Created By, Due By, App Name, Workspace Name, Tag, Field1, Field2, Field3. 

Group your tasks

iii. If the user chooses a column and adds a group, then the system will show it by Group by - column name dropdown  

iv. After adding required groups, the system will display the number of groups added in braces besides the Group button. As soon as a group is added/removed, the count will be updated and the grouping effect on task results should be applied.  

v. System will display the number of records for each group of records created.

Brownie Tips!!

One User can create multiple Views and tag them on multiple Dashboards. 

The Organization Admin and Workspace Admin can manage their own as well as their Team’s Tasks from the Task Management Window itself.
