Creating and using To-dos

ISMS.online offers you the ability to assign Tasks to yourself and others, and they can assign them to you. These tasks (along with Activities from Projects) are collected together as a list of To-dos in a practical and efficient space with all your work ‘to do’ in one place.

Your To-do list

You can access your personal To-do list from the You menu on the main navigation bar as seen above, which includes all Tasks, Activities and Track items assigned to you. Overdue work is highlighted in red.

Within each work area the To-Dos tab will also let you see all work that has been assigned for users in that area.

Filtering your To-do list

You can select what you want to see in your To-do list to include tasks you’ve set others and your own completed tasks as well as activities from Projects or Track items that you are responsible for.

List and Calendar View

You can also filter your To-do list to display tasks in a calendar, showing each activity or task on its due date, by selecting Weekly or Monthly. In the calendar view, you have the ability to drag and drop To-dos in order to change their due date.

See here to find out how to sync your to-do list with your email calendar.

Creating a new Task

Simply click on the green “Add To-do” button on the homepage screen or the same button on the top right of the To-do list page.

Enter your task description, choose a work area if relevant, then the individual or team to assign it to, and click post-task.

You can choose to create the task within a work area that it relates to and set a due date with notes if required.

Once your task has been created, it will appear in your To-do list and the list of the desired recipient/s who will also get an email notification.

Upcoming and Overdue To-dos

The Upcoming and Overdue To-dos that appear on your homepage in the ‘To-do list’ widget is a great way to view your To-dos, as it allows you to see what tasks or activities are due and overdue, allowing you to prioritise your work.

Completing and editing Tasks

Clicking on a task in your To-do list will allow you to:

  • Complete it – Completing a task will mark the task complete and remove it from your active To-do list (you can easily find it again using the relevant filters in your To-do list).
  • Edit it (change the task description, notes, due date or owner – all of which are version controlled for learning and audit purposes).
  • Delete it (if you created it, not if someone else gave it to you!)
  • Mark it as urgent – This will allow it to stand out on your To-do list, helping you to remember to complete the task.
