Tasks app

We are discontinuing this feature, so it will be removed from Haiilo in the future.

The Tasks app is the perfect solution for organizing tasks within a team or project. You can structure your tasks in a more focused manner using lists. Lists are a convenient way to group tasks by theme.

Set up the app

Once you've added a Tasks app to your page or community, you can configure it. Also, read Apps overview for general information on apps.

  • Name: Give your app a meaningful name that best reflects its topic and use case.
  • Activate this app: Activate it immediately or leave it in the deactivated mode. A deactivated app is only visible to admins of a page or community. The app is in draft mode.
  • URL: By default, the URL is generated from the app's name, but you can change it to something else. Any old links leading to the app won't work anymore after you change it.
  • Manage tasks: Select who can create and manage individual tasks: Admins or Everyone.
  • Manage task lists: Select who can create and manage task lists: Admins or Everyone.
