Above is the quickest way to create a basic task, however you will have noticed a few other options in the pop up box.

These additional options are not mandatory, but they will help you coordinate yourself better.

 

Organize your tasks into projects

You’ve created a few basic to-dos, but now let’s make a project where you can combine a group of tasks with the same overall goal.

  1. Go to ‘Projects’ section
  2. Click ‘Add Project’ button
  3. Type in your project name
  4. Press ‘OK’

You can now organize future tasks under projects and also reassign existing tasks to projects that they apply to.

The additional options will help you set priorities with due dates and add further structure by classifying projects under their relevant ‘Organization’.

 

Collaborate with your team

End the confusing email chains and see your project’s progress at a glance.

Cirkus has been built for collaboration and the ‘Organization’ section is where you will be able to manage your team’s projects, members and templates.

 

Here are a few features that will help your team work seamlessly together:

Comment: Collaborate with task level discussions and keep communication centralized to avoid confusion. This will keep team’s comments organized for easy reference.

Roles: You can assign a task to a role rather than to an individual. All the individuals who have that role will be notified of the task, and can pick it up and assign it to whoever is best suited for it. It’s also possible to mention roles in comments. Using roles in comments can direct a comment to a group of specialists or a team.

Mentions: Start a conversation with a someone directly by typing the @ sign and selecting one or multiple team members. You can also move the conversation into a private discussion and allow only “mentioned” colleagues to view the message.

Assign a task: You can also assign a single task in a project to multiple people. When you do this, you have the following options:

1) The task must be completed by all assignees; OR
2) Any one of the assignees can complete the task.

Due date: Setting due date reminders are a great way of keeping track of what tasks are important to get done today. When a due date is selected, assignees will receive push notifications or e-mail reminders as task due dates approach.

File share: End the pesky chain of email attachments and easily share files directly into the task. This will help keep file versions tidy and make referencing back a breeze.
