Tasks

Tasks are an outdated feature within Select, this feature will be removed from WizeHive in the near future.

Tasks are items that need to be assigned and accomplished in order to accomplish the program in question.  These items could represent activities in a project plan or they could represent a list of β€œto-do's”. Tasks can be assigned to yourself or they can be assigned to other members of your Workspace.

While Tasks were once an integral part of WizeHive, they are now one of the more outdated features and can not be used to automate events or send reminders.

How to add a Task

When you select the β€œ Add Task” button, it will bring up the following page below:

After selecting the Add Task button, you will see the display below.  Define your tasks in the square box on the left and then proceed to complete the following attributes of the task:

  • WorkspaceThe Workspace that the task should be associated with
  • Page:  Identifies the entry that the task is specifically associated with (if any)
  • Person:  Identifies the person that will be assigned responsibility for completing the task
  • Priority:  Identifies the priority that you are assigning to the completion of the task
  • Status:  Identifies the status of the task (open, hold, complete)
  • List:  Identifies the List or Group that the task is a part of.  Lists are defined by the administrator.
  • Due Date:  Identifies the due date by which the stated task must be completed.
  • Repeat Task:  Identifies whether the task should be repeated.
  • Attach Files: You can also attach files to Tasks if there are instructions or other information that is important for the assigned resource to be aware of in completing the task.

When a task is marked complete a line will be placed through it. This status is kept on the screen so that the tasks that have been completed are still visible to the member who may have created the task and assigned it. The user has complete control over whether completed tasks should be visible by modifying the display for the Task screen.  More on this can be found in the section entitled Layout Options.
