It's important to understand the basic process behind Taskbox. If you've not yet had a look, click on the link below to find out more.


What is a hierarchy?

Hierarchy

noun

A hierarchy is an arrangement of items that are represented as being "above", "below", or "at the same level as" one another.

The hierarchy within Taskbox provides the building blocks you need to be more organised and get more done. Taskbox has a very simple Hierarchy to optimise the onboarding experience for you and your team.

Top-level - Spaces

Spaces are the highest level in the hierarchy.

They can be used to create departments, branches, areas, stores, clients and much more.

Spaces allow you to group many projects so that you can report on progress in real-time.

Middle-level - Projects

Projects are the middle layer of the hierarchy. They are objectives you need to complete.

They can be used to create goals, deadlines, milestones, sprints or for anything that needs achieving.

Projects allow you to group everything that needs to be completed for your objective in one place.

Need a little more cataloguing in projects? Add tags to categorise your projects with a little more detail.

Low-level - Tasks

Tasks are the lowest level of the hierarchy.

They can be used to log anything that needs doing. From filling up the car with fuel to building a tree house.

Tasks allow you to quantify all the things that need to be done to complete a Project. If something needs to be done to complete a project, could you add it as a task?

Bottom-level - Activity

Activity is everything added to a task. Taskbox is a management application that allows teams to organise all task data in one place. At this level you can organise:

  • Dates, schedules and routine tasks

  • Priorities

  • Locations

  • Checklists - To Do's

  • Media - FIles, Photos, Video, Audio files and more

  • Timesheets

  • Forms

  • Notes
