Permissions! Each user can create personal tasks, however, users must have Module, General, Task Master permission in order to add and manage tasks for other Staff.

Create a Task for another User
Creating a task for someone else works much the same way as creating a personal task, except the target user should be changed to the name of the user the task is being created for.
- The completed task will show on both the creator’s and receiver’s Tasks lists.
- Supervisors may require a response from the User.
- When a response is entered it will display in the task in the Task List.
- Users must respond to a task with a required response before they can delete it from the Task List.
Responses to the task are independent for each User.
- Allow both the creator and receiver to enter responses.
Reminders are also independent for each User.
- User who received the task may set a reminder to do the task.
- User who sent the task may set a reminder to check up on the task.
