You can manage a list of tasks for yourself or for other people from within Synergetic or SynWeb. Tasks can be created and allocated to you or another community member to complete. This is a very useful tool for managing your day-to-day work, and for allocating work to another person.

Tasks can have sub-tasks. You can create task templates including sub-tasks for common duties, such as setting up a new staff member. See Using task templates.

The Task List window is used to view:


You can display and manage tasks as another user. For example, a personal assistant can manage tasks on behalf of other staff members.
See Managing tasks in the Synergetic Introduction manual.

Tip: You can click  from any maintenance window to create a new task.
