Plan your days, weeks, and months with the Nimble Task feature. Our Task feature enables you to stay on top of your most significant engagement opportunities by easily creating follow-up reminders that will send notifications directly to your Inbox and on your mobile device. Tasks can also be delegated to another team member if they plan to follow-up and follow through on important memos.
Let's take a closer look at the Nimble Tasks feature!
Creating Tasks from a contact/company record
The Task feature enables you to quickly log and schedule activities related to a contact. When you create a Task from a contact record, Nimble will automatically autofill certain fields that pertain to the contact.
To launch the feature, simply select "Task" which is located under the Quick Action bar.
The following fields will be available:
- Task Name - Title your task to easily locate it for reference.
- Task Description - Outline the details of your task to strategize appropriately.
- Mark As Completed - Capture date and time a task is completed.
- Due Date - Set a deadline to receive push notifications to your mobile device.
- Assigned To - Delegate tasks to other team members.
- Related To - Add contacts that pertain to the task for easier follow-ups.
- Related Deals - Associate existing deals with your task to get a 360 view of what you need to do to close the deal.
- Tags - Organize your tasks into groups to stay organized.
Once the Task is logged, you will be able to view a list of completed and scheduled Tasks in the Pending & History tab.
To view the details of the Task, simply click on the title to launch the pop-up window.
You'll then have the ability to set the priority of the Task, collaborate with your team members by leaving comments, alter the Task description, and mark it as complete -- all without leaving the contact record.
Creating Tasks from a Deal Record
Tasks can also be created within a Deal record to set follow-up reminders on your most important business opportunities.
To create a Task, simply go to the Deal record and select "Add Activity" >> "Tasks." You can now create a task that will be automatically associated with the deal.
Track Completed and Upcoming Tasks In the Activities tab
Nimble makes it easy to see all of your overdue, upcoming, and completed tasks in a list view. Just visit the "Activities" tab and select the "Tasks" sub-tab.
Task are sorted automatically by the actions you take: upcoming, starred, completed, delegated, and tags.
You may also log Tasks from the Activities Agenda, Activity List (BETA) or Tasks sub-tab by selecting "Add Activity" >> "Tasks."
