Assigning Tasks to Worktrays


Assigned tasks will appear in a Worktray when projects are launched. Task assignment to a Worktray is done in the Project Template, but tasks can also  be assigned after a Project is launched through Power Tools.

To assign a Task to a Worktray from within the Project Template

  1. Select Maintenance > Templates from the Navigation Panel
  2. Use the Project Type filtering to sort templates by type
  3. Double-click the template that is to be edited

  7. In the Worktray dropdown menu, select the name of the Worktray

Note: The Task can be assigned to an Employee Role and a Worktray. If it is assigned to an Employee Role at Task activation, then it will be included on the Employee’s dashboard, as well as the Worktray. However, the assignment to an employee can also be done from the Worktray.
