Contact View - Tasks Tab

The Tasks tab in the new contact view shows all tasks linked to the contact. This will include all statuses, whether To-Do, In-Progress or Complete, they will all be visible, sorted and editable with a few clicks.

Tasks are an often under-utilized function of any platform. That's why Aidium provides many opportunities to create, share, manage and view tasks with ease. Thus, giving our team a great overview of promises, follow-ups, operational and background processes and responsibilities.

Tasks are a great way to know who on our team is managing what, while showing what has been completed, when and by whom. It's also a great way for us to re-distribute responsibilities for vacations and sick days. Overall, it's just a simple way to ensure promises are fulfilled and nothing that has a process will fall through the cracks.

Task Tab Walk-though

Using the image below, we'll give a brief walk-through of each section on this Tasks tab.


  1. Subject - This should be a straightforward title for easy identification of the purpose of this task.
  2. Description - This is where we can add a more details about the task, additional notes, or explanations on why it is where it is.
  3. Type - This can be Email, Call, Text Message or Other. It's an easy way to identify the expectations of the task.
  4. Status - This simply shows if a task is waiting to be started or completed (To Do), is being worked on (In Progress), or is completed (Done).
  5. Assigned User - The shows who on our team is responsible for the task.
  6. Associated Contact - Without an associated contact, a task has no link to a contact. It's important for tracking and helping anyone on our team know who this task will impact.

Edit a Task

There are a few ways to edit a task - starting by clicking the ellipsis [...], next to the subject of the task. After clicking, we'll be provided with 4 of 5 different options, depending upon the current task status.

  1. Edit - This will slide out the Edit Task drawer on the right.
  2. Delete - This will permanently remove the task
  3. Mark as "Done" - Updates the Task Status = Done
  4. Mark as "In Progress" - Updates the Task Status = In Progress
  5. Mark as "To Do" - Updates the Task Status = To Do

The best way to create a new task is directly from within a contact detail. By doing so, it will automatically link the task to the contact, and we'll be able to view the task right away.
