Setting Tasks

This tutorial will show you how to set a reminder task on a contact record, reminding you to get back in touch.

What is a Synergy 8 Task?

In most cases tasks serve as a reminder to get back in touch with a contact.

You will create tasks on contact records, setting a date when you would like to receive a reminder. 

Upcoming and overdue tasks will display when you login to the dashboard, and you will also be e-mailed a reminder. 

Tasks are assigned to the administrator that created them, however you may opt to re-assign the task to an alternative administrator.

Only the administrator assigned to the task will see their upcoming task, however when a task becomes overdue, all administrators will see the overdue tasks in the Dashboard. 

Create a Task

The easiest way to create a task is from the profile page of a contact record.

To get started, navigate to Dashboard > Customers > Contacts, and select a contact record. The "New Task" button appears above the activity feed, alongside admin notes and other CRM tools. 

Upon choosing to create a new task, you will be presented with a simple form that allows you to configure a new task. From here you can load a templated "canned task", or create a task from scratch. 

The task title and description will appear when the task is displayed throughout the dashboard, and will also be e-mailed to you if you set a reminder.

Click the "Create Task" button to create the task.

View all Tasks

To view all tasks across all contacts and administrators, navigate to Dashboard > Customers > Contacts, and select the "Tasks" button towards the top of the page.
