Task Bundles help you to organize your projects even better. If you need a set a predefined task for your projects, you can just create task bundles which will later be added as lists to your project. This is also your option to create standard projects plans by connecting task bundles with a project type.
There are two ways to create task bundles in awork:
- Create task bundles on your own
- Import from our library
Create tasks bundles on your own
Go to settings - Task Bundles. Not click on "Add Task Bundle". You just need to enter a name, description and assign a logo.
Now you can add task lists and task, just as you do in a project.
Clicking the three dots next to the task gives you the option to edit the task details. You will have the following options:
- Type of Work
- Planned Effort
Furthermore you can set the start date and the deadline for a task in reference to the time the task gets created (as in "added to a project"). When setting both start date and deadline the task will show up in the timeline.
Import from our library
Go to Settings - Task Bundles. Now choose the option "Templates from awork". A windows with our task bundle library will open. You can import them to your workspace via the small arrow or click on the to see the details.
The detail page describes the task bundles and gives you the option to read our blog article for that bundle. You can also see all lists and tasks in details and import the bundle into your workspace.
Of course you can edit the task bundle afterwards to make it fit your process.
Edit task bundles
You can edit task bundles at any time. Go to the overview and click on the name You have all the option that are available when creating a task bundle.
Additionally you can reorder task lists, delete the list or delete all tasks from a list
Tipp: If you change a task bundle later on that is already used in projects or project types, it will have no affect on existing projects.
Add tasks bundles to project types
To connect a task bundle with a project type, click on the three dots in the top right and select "Manage Project Types". Not you can either edit existing connections or create new ones via the "Add to project type" button.
The next step gives you the option to select a project type an decide in which status the tasks should appear. If you don't select the option "project creation" the task will appear when you switch the project to the selected status.
Of course you can add task bundles to you project types from within the project types. We describe how to do it here.
Add task bundles to a project.
If you want to add the task bundle to a single project, and not the project type, just navigate to your project tasks and click on the “Import Task Bundle” Button. Select the bundle you want to add and you are done.
Of course you can use awork's templates here, too.
