There are two forms of Tasks in Practice Management;
1. Ad-Hoc Tasks
2. Deadlines associated Tasks
Ad-Hoc Tasks - are standalone tasks which can be created as a one-off, for any practice provisions. To setup an ad-hoc task, head to Workspace > Tasks and click 'Add Ad-Hoc Task'. Navigate through the options as shown below.
The 'show more' option provides a more detailed setup interface with additional options such as Start and Due dates of the task, the option to assign the task to staff members as well as the ability to setup steps for that task.
- You can view your Tasks in 3 different views - List View, Kanban View, Calendar View
- You can filter tasks list by their status - Not started, In Progress, Completed, Overdue
Deadlines associated Tasks - are tasks created based on a particular deadline. Deadline associated tasks are automatically marked as completed once the deadline has been submitted.
To set up a Deadline Associated Task, head to Workspace >> Deadlines and add a new deadline. Fill out the required fields and any additional information then tick the 'Add to Tasks' checkbox.
Upon creating the Deadline, the Task will also be created.
