The checklist tab is thedocyard's task management tool. Checklists can be tailored to a variety of requirements, while aggregated task status is represented on the dashboard as overall deal health indicator and delegated/assigned tasks appear on each team members' dashboard.
A checklist may contain multiple tables of grouped tasks. These tasks can be delegated to teams and assigned to individuals within those teams.
Teams that are collaborating on tasks can leave regular updates in the Update field, all of which are saved to the task's history.
Multiple files can be attached to a task. The checklist tab has a file check-out|Check-in facility, enabling teams to collaborate on documents. The platform has full version history, so each iteration of the document is saved and accessible at any time.
Accessing a checklist tab
The deal space administrators control permissions and set access to tabs for external teams.
As a member of an invited party - if you can see a tab in your workflow, your team has been given access.
- Click on the tab to open.
- Navigate between tables by collapsing the table view.
- Click the Dashboard tab to close checklist view.
Updating a task
The deal administrators set team permissions to allow: read-only or edit task and upload file.
If your team has been given responsibility for a task and allowed edit and upload permissions, members of that team can collaborate on the task:
- Leave progress updates in the Update field
- Reassign the task to another member (also in a responsible team)
- Upload files to a task for other members to review/edit
Collaborating on edits: file check-out / check-in
Teams that are collaborating on a task may be required to review and update files attached to a task.
Using the 'check-out' and 'check-in' feature, collaborating teams are able to see when a file is being edited. Once the edited file has been checked-in, the version number automatically updates.
Collaborating teams can use the Update field to communicate with each other on each stage of the task. By using the "Assigned To" field, a task can be quickly moved from one member to another, saving time and avoiding duplication of effort.
