Add and Assign Tasks

Create GPS enabled tasks on the map, assign to users and get notified

Updated this week

The tasks feature allows teammates to work together to get jobs done. Tasks are anything that you or another teammate might need to do on-farm, for example, fixing a fence, feeding stock or filling a water trough. 

Tasks can be used to monitor the progress of employees and ensure high priority operations are completed. Tasks can also be placed in the exact location on your Farm Map, so that if you assign the task to another teammate they know where that task needs to be completed. 

Tasks can be created and assigned to employees via the Mobile App or Web App. 

Adding a Task from the Mobile App

From the Mobile App, select Tasks

FAQs

Question

Answer

How much space does an image take up on my device?

We optimise the size of the image to reduce storage required. We limit the image size (to 3MB with a max width and height of 4000px) for optimal experience and to reduce time taken to sync.

However, the more images taken on device, the more storage will be required.

What happens when I add photos or want to view photos offline?

If you add photos offline you will be able to see them immediately. When you sync your device others who have access to those tasks will see them too (once they have synced).

If you want to view photos others have added offline you need to ensure both parties have synced their devices.

Can I access images on tasks from the web?

No, at this stage images on tasks are only visible on the mobile app.

Will I get a push notification if a task is assigned to me?

Yes, you will get a push notification if a task is assigned to you, or if a task that has been assigned to you is edited.

Will I get a push notification if I am offline?

No, but you will get the notification if you are back online.

I am not getting push notifications for tasks assigned to me?

Check your device settings (not the AgriWebb App) to allow notifications from AgriWebb.

Will I get a notification if a task is due soon/overdue?

No, not at this stage. Notifications are only pushed on task-assignment, but we are looking at adding more notifications soon 🔧
