Our Product and Development Team has a culture of perfecting, meaning we’re continuously improving features, even after they’re shipped. Tasks have been around on Mavenlink for a long time, but now they’re more powerful than ever. In addition to the new checklist feature, you can also interact with your team directly on a task.
See how your teams can benefit from this functionality
Now, you can continue a conversation on your tasks from anywhere you can see them, such as a project’s Task Tracker, the Global Task Tracker, your Dashboard or even from Mavenlink’s Advanced Performance Analytics. By posting directly on a task, you can carry on a more contextualized conversation within a defined topic because the conversation is now under the umbrella of a task. In other words, the topic is the task.
If you want to call attention to a specific task or let someone know you’ve uploaded a document, use the @mention feature to direct a team member or members to that particular task. The @mention is a great tool to let the Project’s Leads know the status of a task as anyone who is @mentioned on Mavenlink will receive an email notification. Don’t forget, you can also @all to notify everyone when it’s really important.
You can also create private posts on a task. This is ideal when you have a question that could take the public conversation off track. You can set the privacy of a post to be visible to as many members of the project as you like, whether those individuals are clients or service providers. Privacy settings not only apply to the post, they also apply to attachments. If you’ve uploaded a document or attached a file from Google Drive to a task, you can set the privacy to determine who has access to those files.
Private Messages on Tasks
You can upload files directly from your computer to linked posts on your tasks. And when there’s not enough time to write a “looks good!” message you can use a “thumbs up” Emoji to show your approval.
