Task management focusing on doing
- Assign tasks to yourself or to other users
- Set a due date and follow the execution
- Communicate the status with others with task stages
- Display your tasks on a list or a Kanban board
- Prioritize the most critical tasks
The Task undergoes three stages in its life cycle
You write down something you need to get done, and when it needs to be done. Then you can take it off your mind, freeing your brain capacity to another job at hand. Others are also able to see that you have the task on your to-do list.
- Working on it
You change a task’s status to “Doing” or “In progress”, when you start working on it. This communicates to others, that the task is being worked on. In Fingertip, we have several descriptive statuses for this phase.
When the task is complete, or no longer relevant, you can move it to the last phase of its life cycle. This tells also others that the task is complete. It feels good, closing tasks, doesn’t it? Remember to do it often enough so they won’t stay forever in your to-do list!
