Your Dashboard displays information related to tasks in the following ways:
- My Tasks displays the tasks that have been delegated to you by others, or that you have assigned to yourself.
- Delegated Tasks displays the tasks that you have delegated to other members of your team. If you have assigned a task to yourself, these are not included in your Delegated Tasks and display in the My Tasks.
- Notifications display tasks that you have been sent a Notification about. This Dashboard tab can also be accessed by clicking on the Alert icon in the menu bar.
The My Tasks and Delegated Tasks have the option to group or ungroup tasks. Click the Group or Ungroup button as relevant.
For a video walkthrough that includes this feature, refer to Displaying Task Lists Tutorial (5 min).
Grouping the Tasks
When displayed as groups, the tasks display by their due date in three groups - Past Due, due Today and Upcoming.
Click the group heading (Past Due, Today or Upcoming) to expand it and see the list of tasks in that group.
Ungrouping the Tasks
When ungrouped, the tasks display in descending due date.
Making Changes to Tasks
You can make changes to the Status, Due Date or Subject directly from My Tasks and Delegated Tasks. Refer to Updating Tasks from Lists.
You can also click on the Client or Delegator to open the drawer and update any task details. Refer to Updating and Actioning Tasks from the Drawer.
The Notifications tab in your Dashboard displays all system Notifications from FYI (for example, if you have been allocated a task or if someone updates a task that you have delegated to them).
If you have received a notification about a Task, you can open it from the Notifications tab by clicking the Notification title. This opens the Tasks list with the relevant Task opened automatically.
When notifications are sent, this shows in the Alerts icon (the bell icon) as the number of notifications waiting to be read. You can display the Notification tab by clicking the Alerts icon located in the top right-hand side of the screen. Clicking the Alerts icon displays your Dashboard - My Notifications.
