Havelock connects your individual work to your company’s mission, objective, and know-how. Each project consists of activities and each activity has tasks that must be executed.

All tasks assigned to a specific person are actionable and end up in their My Tasks hub, where they are prioritized and ready for work. Tasks always put things in context for all related parties by giving them quick access to the activity, the project or the goal a task belongs to.

Tasks elements

Each task has five main elements:

  • Task Assignee

A task assignee is a person doing the work. Sometimes a task may have more than one assignee. This happens because there are often complex tasks that require the involvement of several people, often several teams.

  • Task Owner

The task owner is the person who assigns the task and is responsible for seeing the task through to completion. They could be project managers or other users.

  • Task Target Deadline

A deadline is the latest date by which a task must be completed. It’s set by the task owner in accordance with the deadline of the activity the task is part of.

Types of tasks

You can create and work on three main types of tasks in Havelock:

  • Single Tasks

Single tasks are non-recurring activities, and constructive steps on the road to project completion.

  • Recurring Tasks

Recurring tasks consist of a sequence of tasks that are predetermined and occur at regular intervals.

Note: You can create sub-tasks to a recurring task only when you open an individual task part of the recurring sequence.

  • Sub-Tasks

Use sub-tasks to break up the work of a task (single or recurring) into smaller parts and involve other people. Sub-tasks function like regular tasks and have the same components.
