Working with Tasks
Use tasks to remind yourself to take specific actions with a contact. Tasks help you focus on what matters to you at the point you are ready to action them.
The Tasks page will display tasks by:
- Today's tasks: Easily be able to see what you need to do today.
- Overdue tasks: We understand, sometimes you can't complete tasks the day they are due, so you can go back and catch up when you have time!
- Future tasks: See what is upcoming so you can better prepare. We have you covered! This view will also show tasks with no due date.
The Calendar page will display your tasks in a monthly view.
Use task types to identify which type of action your task requires. For example, use the "Call" task type to represent a task that requires a call to the contact.
You can set the task type in the "Create task" or "Edit task" window. The default task type is "Follow Up," but clicking the task type drop-down menu will reveal the following task types you can set:
