Tasks

Do you have a project that needs to be reviewed by the end of the week? Stay on track by assigning a task. Tasks can be assigned to any other Egnyte user with permission for that file. Both users (assignor and assignee) will receive notifications in the Web UI as well as e-mail updates regarding due dates and key actions that have been performed for the task (e.g., completing, declining, re-opening). 

Create a Task

To create a new task, follow the steps below

  1. Open the file, select Tasks from the top menu, and click New Task.

  2. Create a name for the task, choose who you'd like to assign it to, and give it a due date. Click Create task once all the information has been entered.

  3. Once the task has been resolved, you'll receive a notification so you don't have to keep checking in.
