The idea behind the delegation is simple: you can't do everything by yourself. Thus it would help if you assigned some of the duties to third parties. In that case, the task is still your responsibility and remains on your list. However, you are not the one who will perform it. Instead, you will be the one that will monitor its execution or supervise it.
Delegation is one of several mechanisms allowing Taskheat to shink down your to-do list by removing irrelevant actions from there. Delegated tasks will not appear in Actual Tasks. However, you can access them in the Delegated section of the sidebar to overview and mark their completion and other states.
Here's how to delegate a task to a person or organization:
In Mac version:
- Select the task for editing and click the Delegate field.
- Start typing the name or organization title.
- The application will show you your Contacts' suggestions (it requires you to permit Taskheat to read your Contacts). Or you can type any custom name of the title and hit Enter to confirm.
- Select the right person from the list, and the task will have a delegation indicator.
In iPhone or iPad version:
- Select the task for editing
- Tap Delegate field
- Pick the contact from your Contacts list(it requires you to permit Taskheat to read your Contacts).
The delegation is for your personal records only. The person or organization you delegated the task to will not receive any notifications, and it is your responsibility to monitor and mark those tasks as completed when necessary.
