Task records are a summary of field activities that are scheduled to be, are in process of, or have been completed. Tasks can be captured with minimal data points or with optional data points to answer the following statements, as needed for an operation's record keeping:
- When did the field activity take place
- Who applied the product(s) and/or service(s)
- Who authorized the task
- What field(s) did the field activity occur
- What product(s) and/or service(s) were applied to the field
- What method were the product(s) applied
- Why was the product(s) applied
- What were the weather conditions
To begin, navigate to the Tasks menu on the left side of the screen and select the + Create Task button in the upper-right corner.
Within the Details tab, begin capturing any information needed for the operation's record keeping. The mandatory data to capture, indicated by an asterisk *, includes Task ID, Task Status, Start Date & Time and Duration.
