Understanding The Task Details Pane

Familiarizing yourself with the task details pane will streamline your task management process. The pane allows you to mark tasks as either complete or incomplete and provides features like file upload and time tracking for tasks. This pane is home to many options, helping make your task management more efficient.

Marking Tasks as Complete or Incomplete

Being able to mark tasks as complete or incomplete helps clear your work queue. You can do this by simply clicking on the checkmark icon from the main pane or the Mark Complete button on the task details pane. If you have to revert a task back to an incomplete status, simply click on the completed button or the checkmark again.

NOTE: For more detailed instructions on how to manage tasks using task fields, refer to Asana Task Fields Guide. This guide offers comprehensive guidance including using bullets effectively.

Task Assignees and Followers

Each task has one assignee, and multiple followers. The assignee is the person responsible for the task, and followers are those who wish to keep track of the task’s progress. To add or change assignees and followers, look for the corresponding sections in the task details pane.

Due Dates and Times

Managing your tasks comes down to managing their due dates and times. The task detail pane provides options to set due dates and applicable time for each task to ensure you or your team does not miss any deadlines.

Task Dependencies

Task dependencies help you map out the sequence of your project’s tasks. In the task details pane, you can choose which tasks are dependent on others by selecting ‘Mark as Dependent On’ field and ensure your project stays on track.

Attaching Files to Tasks

To make sure all necessary resources are accessible, you can attach files directly to tasks in the task details pane. Choose from your computer, Google Drive, Dropbox, or Box to upload relevant files.

Tab + P Shortcut

To quickly add your task to another project, you can use the shortcut Tab + P from the task pane. This will open a dropdown where you can type the name of the project to which you want to add the task.

Custom Fields

For further organization, you can create custom fields for your tasks, such as priority level, cost, or progress level. These can be added in the task details pane under the “Custom Fields” section.
