🔥 Task logs just got a whole lot better! 🔥

Our ambitious development roadmap (enabling structured knowledge + project/task management = professional service excellence) remains well on track – and, with the latest release, comes an improved set of task logs. 

Now your task logs contain a status attribute: at a glance, you can see which tasks are overdue, open or complete.

Additional filters allow you to choose your optimal table view: by overdue tasks only, tasks due today, completed tasks only etc. You can also sort your task log by any task attribute (ascending/descending) by simply clicking on the relevant column heading.

You can also now manage all of your assigned tasks – in multiple grids/projects – from your personal “My tasks” view – by ticking completed tasks at this summary level.

We have also updated the task log functionality as viewable at the grid level and the individual element element level (via the information (i) action buttons).

The sharp-eyed amongst you will also note that the table columns have been re-ordered into a more logical flow: starting with task name, followed by: Assigned by, Assigned when, Due date, Status, Completed on, Completed by, Element, Grid, Stage, Theme and finally Folder name attributes. You can easily print off, or export to .csv file, these improved tables for task/progress reports.

And, there is more.

With this release – per common request – you can also save tasks directly into your calendar with the simple click of a button (this feature is available to professional subscriptions).

Finally, you can choose your preferred date display format from the following options: yyyy-mm-dd, mm-dd-yyyy, dd-mm-yyyy or 18 Feb 2020; just go to your personal profile drop-down menu (top right) and select “Your settings” to do so. Architects can set the account level default via the “Account settings” menu option.

Phew.

Did you get all that?

As always, the best way to see how this could improve the value you derive from the solution is to head over to your account and play around – why not head straight to “Dashboard | My tasks” as a starting point. There is a load more information in our “Logs” FAQ section also.


Next up for our fast-moving development team?

The ability to assign owners to a grid, a stage and a theme, plus the notifications to support this assignment activity – due for release 6 March 2020.

Please continue to keep the feedback and new feature ideas coming (there is nothing we like more).
