Actions allow you to add another level of details to your tasks. You can add multiple actions to a task, they are aimed to be a list of things to carry out for your task, a checklist of sorts.
Note: there are no subtasks in Beesbusy but the actions can allow you to replace them efficiently by providing an additional level of detail.
Actions can be found in different places of the task detail panel, with different usage.
Summary of actions panel
Task > Task detail panel: On the right, click on the “Actions” icon. You will find all the actions of the task there.
- Add an action to the task: enter the name of your action in “Add an action”, press “+” or the “Enter” key to validate.
- Assign a member to the action: click on the hexagon-shaped icon to the left of the action and select the member you want to assign to this action.
- Mark an action as completed: click on the validation check mark . The icon turns green.
- Delete or rename an action: click on the 3 small dots to the right of the action name, then click on “Rename” or “Delete“.
Note: in this panel, you find all the actions of the task, regardless of their status (completed/not completed, assigned/unassigned)
Add an action quickly from the What tab
Task > What tab of the task detail: In the comments entry box, use the “Actions” icon to transform the entered text into actions (one line = one action).
This allows you to quickly add a “checklist” of things to do, for instance during a meeting.
Assign actions to task members
Task > Who tab of the task detail: Next to each member assigned to the task, click the actions button to unfold or hide the panel.
For each member assigned to the task, you can add, edit, or delete actions, and mark actions as completed.
In the Who tab, you thus have a distribution of actions by member. You can only view actions assigned to members.
Note: Setting an action as completed won’t have any impact on the progress of the task and won’t set the task as completed.
