Are you looking for an easy and quick way to create day-to-day one-off tasks or even recurring tasks with ease from your mobile device (or admin dashboard)? With the Quick Tasks feature, you're able to monitor your team's progress, maintain lists of completed and uncompleted tasks, group and organize tasks, add attachments, and much more!

If you haven't started optimizing the Quick Tasks feature, you can find a detailed article that will help you get started here.

Within the task, you may find that you want to engage more with your mobile users regarding whatever job is at hand. Whether it's adding more information to the task or seeing and engaging with comments from mobile users, Connecteam has you covered. With task descriptions and the comment board, you're able to constantly engage with users so that no task is left undone because of a lack of information.

So, let's get started!

Task Description

The Task Description section is an optional field that allows the task creator to add all the necessary information the user or team needs in order to complete it.

Task details can include free text and images, with no characters nor storage limit, and can be added before publishing the task or afterward using the edit option.

You can add the task description in a few easy steps.

First, create a quick task! You can add a description when creating single or multiple tasks. When creating the task, first start by clicking on the "Add new" button to create a task you can add any information or attachments you would like in the "Description" field. It's that simple!

First, click on "Add Task", here's how it looks on the dashboard:

Pro-Tip: In the description, you can add images, files, and links. On the Expert plan, you can add shortcuts which include access to different features and assets throughout the platform.

Comment's Board

The comments board is a familiar and easy way to collaborate for an individual user with the task creator, or for team task members between each other, regarding a specific task.

To add a comment, go into your task of choice and click on the "Comments" tab. It's that easy!

The comments board will appear at the bottom of each Task Details page and will allow users that are assigned to a task to perform powerful actions, such as:

  • Adding images from their images gallery or camera

  • Attaching files of all types

  • Sharing their location over a map

  • Commenting, liking, and replying to other team task member's comments

  • Mentioning team task members

In short, the task descriptions and comments are a great way to communicate with your employees on the go. Make sure that no task goes left undone with this amazing feature.
