Tasks can be added for any team member from just about any area in Streamtime. No need to navigate back to your To Do screen or the Schedule to add a task, or even log time.

Adding a ToDo from your Job Screen

Particularly handy when you need to get someone or yourself working on something right away. Head to your job, click on Create and add a ToDo for a team member or yourself.

Select an item and click Create Task.

If you are looking to log time for a task that you have already completed, simply click Create & Log and the time will be logged against that job.

Adding a ToDo from Priorities

When in Priorities you can add a quick ToDo directly from a card. This is very handy when you are in the middle of a meeting and action needs to be taken while discussing a particular job/card.

Click the 3 dots on the top-right of any card to turn it over and select Add ToDo.

Select an item and click on Create Task.

And there you have it, some nice and quick tips to add tasks and time entries. These will allow you way to stay focused on what you need to do and avoid that tedious admin.
