influence FM Tasks Management System

“Tasks” are only for duties that are NOT related to a customer

Uses: The task system is intended for things such as internal meetings with management, radio station events/functions or picking up donuts for the office.

DO NOT use the task system for things that are related to a customer.

influence FM allows the user to add and manage tasks in (3) different ways: 

  1. By Clicking on the “+ New” section at the top left
  2. Directly From the Tasks Main Interface
  3. Directly From the Calendar

Get a quick view of daily tasks that are due by clicking on the black “Tasks” button on the top right of your screen. (see image below)

Creating a New Task

Click on the green “+ New” button on the top left of the screen. Choose “+ New Task” from the drop down menu.

Add a task from the main task interface (click to open)

To Add A New Task Directly From the Tasks Interface:

Adding tasks to the calendar from the “Tasks” main interface is best when you are power tasking. Power tasking is when you need to add a lot of tasks to your calendar. This is really handy for someone like a sales assistant, production or secretary.

  • Click on the “Tasks” main interface button on the left side of your screen
  • Click on the green “New Task” button on the right side of your screen

(see image below)

After you click on the “New Task” button, fill in the pop-up form to complete your task. You can assign a task to yourself or are also able to assign a task to other influence FM users as well.

This task will inform you everyday until the task is completed by clicking “yes” if you would like this task to nag you. You can also set a task as a recurring task by clicking on the orange “Recurring?” button.
