The most recent update was about CRM – new website forms
, open channels for social networks
and online payments
. This time it’s all about tasks. If you log into your Bitrix24 account, you’ll see that you can now add custom fields to tasks, create tasks from posts or comments and build workload charts.
1. Post to task
Activity stream is great for discussing ideas but when it’s time to act you need to switch to tasks. Now you can convert any post or comment to a task. Simply click ‘More’ and select Create task. The contents of the post/comment will be automatically inserted into the newly created task. You do remember that you can already create tasks from email
, don't you?
2. Employee workload charts
You loved Bitrix24 employee workload planning
but wanted to have Gantt-like employee involvement charts for easier workload management. Done! The chart can be build for individual employees, departments or the entire company, provided you have the appropriate access rights.
3. Custom fields for tasks
Very few project management tools give you custom fields for tasks. In Bitrix24 this option is now available starting with Bitrix24 Standard plan. Simply click ‘Create new task’, scroll to the bottom and create a custom field. If you are an administrator, you can share the newly created task field with all employees and enable field dragging (see the gear icon next to Custom field).
