What is a task?
The Blerter tasks allows event managers and team leaders to create and manage tasks and assign them to other team members. They can be a range of things, from notifying people to ensuring the area is immediately safe for other people.
Examples of Tasks: Empty bins, ensure team leader is aware of situation, do not leave the person unattended, notify management and/or emergency response team, ensure first aid has been provided, communicate to wider team, review location for hazards and crew & manage as appropriate.
Why is it important?
With so many different people and components involved with any event its important everyone stays on top of what they're meant to do. Tasks are the perfect way to keep track of who is taking control of what. They are also useful in the case that people get caught up with something and forget what they need to do, as with tasks people have a individual list to refer to.
How does it work?
Managers can create tasks linked to any information, hazard or incident assigning these to any crew member or volunteer to complete. The tasks can then be assigned and viewed by team members to be completed, which is when they can check them off. You will receive a notification if a task is assigned to you.
When creating the task fill in as much information as you can - including description, priority level, assignee, due date, location, reference and any necessary attachments. Once a task is published you can change the status including in-progress, complete, closed, assign or move to trash.
