Tasks can be created for students or staff, displaying as a notification letting them know of something they need to complete. These tasks are assigned types, which are then assigned to permission groups to determine which staff members can create what tasks.
Creating a Task Type
To create a new Task Type, go to Other > Other Options > Preferences > Task Types. Here, you will find your list of available types. To add a new type, click the + icon and select the name to rename it.
Assigning Task Type Access
After creating your task type, you will need to update permission groups so your staff can access and create tasks in this category. Within each permission group, under the Center Access tab, you will find a Task Types list, where you can designate access to specific types.
Other > Other Options > Groups > [The group you want to edit] > Center Access
Additionally, to provide access to the dashboard Student Tasks utility, go to the Student / Visit tab in the permission group and enable Show the Tasks & Create Task on Main Menu.
Creating Tasks for Students/Staff
A task can either be submitted from the dashboard (if the permission group allows it) or a student/staff profile directly. Either option will take you to a task creation menu.
The Task creation menu allows you to select the student and staff member this task is assigned to, the task and task type, the due date, and additional notes if more information is needed.
As the recipient of a task, we can find our upcoming tasks in our notification list (bell icon in navigation bar). Once we’ve completed the task, we can click the edit icon, check the “Completed” checkbox, then save.
The completed task can be found in the student/staff timeline if we need to refer back to it later.
The Tasks report, found in Reports > Management, allows you to review submitted tasks and their status. This includes the task type, due date, created date, whether or not it has been completed, and more.
