How to create new Task?

Created by Juraj Šufliarsky, Modified on Mon, 14 Aug 2023 at 05:48 AM by Alexandra Gallisová

Creating Task (assignment to deliver the services) is necessary for tracking the time spent on your projects. Without creating a task, you won't be able to track your team's working hours accurately. 

A task can be created in several ways or from various places in Allfred. To create one, always click on the "+ New Task" button.

1) From project details

  • Navigate to the budget item under which you want to create a task
  • click on + New task
  • Name: Fill in the name of the Task
  • Project/Budget item: Assign a task to a specific project and budget item (you can use also the Non-budgeted option)
  • Positions/People: Allfred will automatically pre-fill the number of hours and positions based on how you priced the client in the budget for that item. If you didn't specify the number of hours in the budget, you can manually enter the hours as well the position and person that will be assigned to the task
  • Duration, Deadline: set the duration or deadline if needed
  • Priority, Status: choose the priority from Low to Urgent and tasks status
  • Description: Add description and attachments
  • Create


2) From the main menu

Use the "New Task" button on the main bar in the top right corner. As you didn't start from project detail, it is necessary to fill in the project and budget item manually. Then proceed as in first case.

3) From Planning

Another option for creating a task is through Planning. Here, you can plan capacities for yourself or your team members. Press the "+" button in the column of a specific team member. Instead of choosing existing tasks, select the "Create New Task" option.

Task status

For Allfred to serve well, we recommend using task statuses, for better orientation and managing of assigned tasks.

  • New
  • Briefed
  • In progress
  • In review
  • Approved
  • Done

List of Tasks

In the Tasks section, you can find a list of all tasks. You can switch between "Highlighted", "My tasks", "My created Tasks" or "All tasks", view and filter them by client or brand, team, status, priority, assigned people or positions, creator of the task, or task deadline.

Tasks are sorted based on their status, from New to Done. Done tasks are hidden by default, but you can choose to display them by using the "Show Done tasks" option.

Task details

When viewing a task in detail, you'll have access to all the important information, such as assigned people and positions, planned and tracked hours, task priority, status, and deadline.

Attachments and assignment details are right at your fingertips. You can communicate with your team within the task, tag colleagues, react to their comments with emojis, or select the required status of task. Allfred will send notifications to keep everyone informed about any changes.
