Project Tasks

Within the project tasks you have two options to view your tasks

  1. Lists
  2. (Kanban-) Board

To switch between the views, just click on the button on top. The tasks are the same in each view, so you can work in the view that suits you best. 



Project Tasks - Lists


To organize yourself within your project you can create lists that are like a container for your tasks. Reorder lists within your project by drag & drop. You can also move tasks by drag & drop between the lists. To add a new list just click on “Add list here” above or below a list.


The easiest way to interact with multiple tasks is just clicking on the name of the task. awork will give you a split screen view where you can easily work within the task details and switch between tasks. You can find more information about how to create / manage task via lists here.


The list view itself gives you also the option to

  1. Add new tasks
  2. Decide if you want tasks to be shown which are done
  3. Import Task Bundles
  4. Search


Project Tasks - Board

(Kanban-) Board

The board enables the Kanban view for your project. You have different columns according to your project statuses. You can add new columns by clicking on the right sight of the screen and move them by drag & drop.


You can drag & drop the task through the different columns and perform the following actions:

  1. Set task status (moves the task between columns)
  2. Start time tracking
  3. Set due date
  4. Set assignee
  5. Edit task
  6. Duplicate task
  7. Create new time entry
  8. Delete task
  9. Add new tasks
  10. Import Task Bundles
  11. Switch to presentation mode


If you toggle the presentation mode, awork just shows the most important information (task name, description, picture) on the board. This helps to get a much better overview in the board. 


Project Times

The project times show you all times that got tracked on a project. Time trackings from timers that are still running do not show up here.

On this page you can

  1. Switch between day or week view
  2. Switch between month
  3. Set filters
  4. Edit or delete entries


Client overview

Clients help you to easily see for whom you are doing a certain project. This is also a good way for your team to see if you are working on an internal or external project. Furthermore you will find an overview about all projects for a certain client in the detailed client view.

To see the client overview nagivate to "Workspace" / "Clients". On this screen you can create new clients (1) or edit / delete (2) existing clients. 


If you click on a clients name you will be forwarded to the clients detais. Here you have an overview about all the contact information (1) and the active projects (2) of this client. You can also switch to the overall project overview (3) for the client to filter for certain projects and see inactive projects, too. 


Create a new client

You can create new clients either through the global add button or in the client overview. If you start typing your client's name, awork will recommend you the company name. You can either go with our recommendation or decide to put in the information yourself. You will also be able to set an industry sector for each client.

You can also set a logo and contact information like phone numbers, email and postal addresses for each client.


You can access the client's details by clicking on the name in the client overview or via search.
