Editing due date of task

You can set edit due date of task in the Task Pane. To edit due date for a task:

  1. Open the task in Task Pane. If the task is inside a Task Pool, open the Task Pool from the Left Pane and select the task from the tasks list. If the task is one of a task assigned to you, find it in the My Tasks page. You can also find from tag, based on their due status, etc.

  2. If the task has no due date specified, click Due Date at the top right, next to the profile photo of the verifier. If the task already has a due date specified and you want to change it, click directly on the due date.

    Alternatively, you can specify the due date by adjusting the duration. This is particularly useful when you have an approximation about the number of days required to complete the task. For example, if you think that a feature can be implemented in 4 days, specify 4 to be the duration of the implementation task. The due date will then be calculated automatically.

Repeated task

Your team may have tasks that need to be performed on regular basis. Here are some examples:

  • Produce a beta release daily.
  • Pay the monthly salary on the 25th of every month.
  • Meet with the stakeholders every three days after the previous meeting.

In Tasifier, you can set a task to be "repeated" so that a new task will automatically be created based that task, on a specified interval. For example, setting a task "Task X" to "repeat daily" will result in having a new task created one day after "Task X" is completed.

To set repeated task:

  1. Open the task in Task Pane. If the task is inside a Task Pool, open the Task Pool from the Left Pane and select the task from the tasks list. If the task is one of a task assigned to you, find it in the My Tasks page. You can also find from tag, based on their due status, etc.

Reminding me of due date

Tasifier allows you to lists out the tasks that will be overdue in a certain period of time. This is a useful feature but it requires yourself to manually review the tasks. If you want Tasifier to notify you when a task is about to overdue, you can use the remind feature. Remind works like an alarm. By setting a reminder, you will receive an inbox notification when a task is about overdue.

To add a reminder:

  1. Open the task in Task Pane. If the task is inside a Task Pool, open the Task Pool from the Left Pane and select the task from the tasks list. If the task is one of a task assigned to you, find it in the My Tasks page. You can also find from tag, based on their due status, etc.
