It isn't uncommon for Accelo to handle hundreds, or even thousands of active Tasks on the upcoming schedules for our users. Viewing all of these on the Task Board, Task Lists, Timesheets, and other pages can be overwhelming. In such cases, even filtering by due date isn't quite enough to effeciently schedule out work based on urgency when you have so much data to digest.
Task Priorities give a quick visual queue to assist resource managers in managing the work load for their teams. With effective use, critical work will always be taken care of first, leaving less stress for everyone on the team.
There are numerous ways you can create a Task within Accelo, which offers you multiple opportunities to deem priority right away. Simply follow these steps:
There will be many occassions where Tasks aren't being properly prioritized. Perhaps the creator forgot to do so, maybe there wasn't sufficient information to properly do so, or perhaps it was created through automation.
Regardless of the reason, it's a simple matter to update or edit the Priority of a Task wherever you find them!
Do you have different priority names you're used to using? Good news, the title, or label, for each priority can be configured in the Admin settings, so you can use a prioritization language your team is already familiar with.
Currently, we are not supporting the creation of additional priority levels, nor the customization of the icons.
While prioritizing your Tasks can be a very useful tool, it currently isn't available to utilize on all aspects of Accelo (yet!). You may find them missing on some pages where you want to report on them accordingly.
If you have a moment, please provide feedback around which areas we can improve on first.
In the meantime, our Task Priorities can be utilized to the best efficiency and use on the following pages:
