Keeping everyone on the same page is one of the biggest day-to-day hurdles business owners face.
As you add staff to your growing business it can be a challenge to keep them organized while also making sure everyone’s responsibilities are being taken care of. Efficiency is a key part of maintaining your high quality of service as your business grows.
ProPet’s Tasklist allows you to keep a close eye on what has been done and what still needs to be completed, and it’s a great tool for any growing pet business.
Why Use Tasks
One of the most common traits of successful companies is effective communication. Effective communication should be the foundation of your staff management strategy. Without clearly defined goals and tasks each day you run the risk of wasting your time, as well as your staff’s.
ProPet’s Tasklist enables you to effectively manage your daily operations, enhancing your staff’s efficacy while giving you a reference point for what has been completed and what still needs to be worked on.
You are able to set clearly defined tasks, manage the priority level of that task, set a due date and time, and even assign the task to a specific staff member to ensure there is no task overlap or wasted work hours.
This is especially helpful for managing things like kennel cleaning duties, remembering to restock retail items and any other daily occurrences that you need to complete in order for your day to go smoothly.
How to Make a Task
Creating tasks in ProPet is an easy process. When you’re logged into your Admin portal, simply click on the wrench icon at the bottom of the directory panel on the left side of the screen, and then click tasks.
When you click on “Add Task” a window will pop-up and you will be able to fill in all the necessary information about that particular task. You’re able to create a name for the task, write a detailed description of what needs to be completed, then you’re able to assign that task to a specific staff member.
Tasks can also be given precise due dates down to the day and hour of which the task needs to be finished. In addition to a timeline you can create a priority status too. This allows you to set certain tasks, assigned or otherwise, to high priority which allows your staff to know which tasks should be completed first.
Also you can set up your task panel so that when you assign a task to a particular staff member they will either be emailed or texted to let them know that they have a new task assignment.
ProPet makes managing your tasks simple. Once you have created your tasks you are able to check their status at a later time to see how many have been completed and how many are still in the pipeline.
Simply click “Show Filters” on the task page and you will be able to set the parameters through which you’d like to filter your task view. You can choose to only view all tasks, or only incomplete tasks, or even incomplete tasks by a particular staff member.
ProPet is a cloud-based software so you can login from anywhere and check your tasks and make sure things are getting done, even if you’re on vacation. It’s a great tool for staying up to date and making sure your business never lags behind.
