Tasks are used to track work completed by members within your business or organization. The Tasks page automatically tracks all the assigned and completed tasks for you.
Do you need to repeatedly assign the same tasks to your co-workers or teammates? Why spend the time and energy re-creating tasks when you can create a re-usable template with specific custom fields for each task? Task templates help you quickly and easily assign common tasks by letting you build templates that work for you.
Do you find yourself struggling to manage the big picture and the nitty gritty details of the work you assign? Create a project for the larger objective, and break the work down into individual tasks!
Filtering, Sorting, and Searching Tasks
Filter tasks by the team member they were assigned to, who they were assigned by, or deal status using the Filters drop down menu.
Sort your tasks alphabetically by title, by the date created, date completed, or completion date using the arrows next to the column you'd like to sort by.
Search your tasks for a specific term by using the search bar.
