Tasks are like building blocks in the larger structure of your client work. They might seem small, but you’ll notice if one is out of place. It’s important to maintain the structural integrity of your projects by keeping those blocks intact. This is a granular job, and it starts with finding a platform that can handle this level of detail.

How To Choose the Right Task Management Software

Not all task-tracking software has the same capabilities. Here are three key features to look for that can support status monitoring. 

Ease of updates

Project goals change and priorities shift all the time, so your task management platform should make it easy for you to reorder and reassign tasks, preferably with drag-and-drop timeline views. These changes, plus completed tasks and status updates, should be reflected in the overall project plan.

Accelo’s Gantt chart view enables you to plan for dependencies and shift priorities.

Multiple filters

As you track tasks, you’ll want to filter by status, deadline, team member and more. Having multiple filters will allow you to see which tasks have been completed, which are in progress and which are nearing the deadline. You can also identify any bottlenecks and obstacles before they impact the project timeline. 

Accelo’s Status Task Board provides an overview of tasks with a range of filters.  

Recurring task capabilities

One of the most frustrating and time-consuming parts of task management is having to manually duplicate the tasks you do over and over. Choose a platform that allows you to set up recurring tasks easily, so you can simply create a preset project instead of starting from scratch. 

Accelo’s Retainers product offers an automated way to manage recurring projects and tasks.

What Is a Task Status in Accelo?

Your team needs a platform that unifies individual and team tasks with the full project scope and connects to all other steps in the client journey. With Accelo, you can easily move, filter, log and synchronize task progress, all while keeping the overall project plan updated.

Accelo offers flexibility with task management by allowing you to change the status of a task instantly and keep your information up to date across multiple projects. Task Statuses specify the stages through which your tasks progress within a work project.  

In Accelo, a Task Status can be Unassigned, Pending, Accepted, Started or Complete.

Customizable task management software makes your team more diligent and less stressed about the risk of things falling through the cracks. Accelo’s Task Statuses give individual team members the freedom to focus on the tasks at hand without having to update colleagues directly. A dashboard overview of completed, in-progress and pending tasks serves as a real-time resource for project managers and leaders.

Give your team the support they need to confidently check off every task. Explore Accelo via a free trial or demo.
