To Do

A ToDo list is a set of tasks that an individual is expected to complete. A ToDo in StrideERP is a straightforward tool used to specify the tasks that need to be completed. All the tasks you have been given and those you have undertaken will be listed on the ToDo list.

When you are given any other Document, a ToDo is likewise automatically created. Checkout Auto Creation of ToDos .

2. How to Create a ToDo

To access the ToDo list, go to:

Management > Tools > ToDo

Note: While creating a ToDo using the Quick Entry, the ToDo by default gets assigned to the creator. To prevent the same, and assign it to other users, ensure that you edit the ToDo in Full Page.

2.1 Additional Options while creating a ToDo

  1. Status: You can define the status of the ToDo. While creation, the status of the ToDo would be 'Open' by default. The user can change it to 'Closed' when the assignment is completed.
  2. Priority: You can define the Priority of this task as Low, Medium or High.
  3. Color: You can choose to assign a color to each of your ToDos. E.g., a ToDo created as a weekly reminder for sending reports can be assigned the color Purple, whereas all the personal ToDos can be assigned the Color Yellow.
  4. Due Date: You can add the Due Date to all the ToDos.
  5. Allocated To: In cases where you are assigning a ToDo to another StrideERP User, you can do so here.

  2. Closed: When an activity is completed, the ToDo can be marked as 'Closed' or 'Resolved' or 'Completed'. Further, for conditions like Issue Resolved or task Completed; the ToDo gets closed automatically. It can also be Reopened if required.
