Tasks are a specific itemized work or a single initiative that can be associated with any number of objects like the case, orders, etc. You can assign tasks to multiple employees in order to accomplish it in a short span of time. In turn, it will increase the productivity of the organization.

For Instance: If you are a Marketing Manager, you are responsible for splitting up the tasks among your sales representatives. There may be a few tasks that should be accomplished with the help of a couple of representatives. In that case, it would be much simpler if you had an option to assign the tasks to them instead of adding creating the same tasks for all of them.

You can assign the tasks to the employees in two ways:

  • While creating tasks
  • Bulk assigning after creating the tasks

Steps to assign tasks while creating
