Understanding tasks

What are tasks

Task are created because their is a job to do. The task will enable the manager to carry out all that is required in order to complete the job at hand. The task acts as a wrapper for everything that is that job.

  • Property
  • Unit

How does hierarchy determine which tenants have access?

Depending on where its shared will determine which tenants see what:

  • Property level – Shared with all current tenants in the building
  • Unit level– shared with current tenants of the unit
  • Tenancy level – shared with current tenants on that tenancy


How does hierachy affect what you can action within a task

Depending at which level a task is raised, property, unit or tenancy will determine what functions are available to you. There are two menu options available within the task:

  1. Primary menu – Task menu (green)
  2. Secondary menu – Related menu (Blue). These include task created as a result of a relationship to a property, unit or tenancy


See example of a tenancy related task

a) Primary menu

This will give you options to update anything to do specifically with this task.

b) Secondary menu

This secondary menu mean you can carry out many functions without leaving the task. These are to do with whatever the task is related to – e.g. the property, unit, tenancy etc.

In the example below the task is related to the tenancy and many function related to a tenancy can be created from within the task. The example below shows tenancy information and provides the same menu as found within a tenancy
