Setting task due dates is crucial to getting the most out of Taskbox. It helps us automatically organise your work for you and deliver your whole team the most accurate and relevant projects data. Setting due dates giggles everyone a clear understanding of what tasks need doing for when, and how to best get the work done to schedule. Here are 3 reasons why setting due dates will help your progress.

1. Tasks without due dates won’t be automatically organised by Taskbox.

If you don’t set a due date in your task or project, they won’t show up in yours or your team’s dashboard. Or in any of the visual boards they will be using. This is because taskbox prioritises work based on when it needs doing, and other metrics. If you don’t tell anyone when a project or tasks needs doing, when do you expect it to be done?

2. Due Dates allow everyone to work towards the same objective.

Due dates keep all the work in you organisation correctly and accurately organised. By adding when you need a task completed by taskbox will organise this with the correct people, and ensure that they work on the task at the right times. This in turn means everyone simply gets on with working, and taskbox will make sure that the work proactively gets done before then.

3. Not setting due dates makes it difficult for anyone to organise well.

When you get a task assigned to you that doesn’t have a due date set; when are you supposed to do it? How are you supposed to fit it in with the other tasks you are working on? What is its priority in comparison?

These are questions that none of your team can answer without the specification of a simple due date for a task. Make sure you use one.
