In the Task section of Avionté you create, edit, and view tasks. If you have used tasks in Outlook, you will find that tasks in Avionte are used in much the same manner.



Tasks view

The Tasks view can be arranged in a number of ways so as to allow users the ability to focus on the most pertinent information to them at a given time.


Current view

The Current View group of the Tasks window allows users to sort the types of tasks that are displayed.


The criteria by which users can sort are:

  • All Tasks: View all tasks.

  • Today's Tasks: View only tasks scheduled for the current date.

  • Completed Tasks: View only tasks that have been finished.

  • Future Tasks: View only tasks that are to be completed at a later date.

  • Overdue Tasks: View only tasks that were scheduled to be completed prior to the current date.

  • Due Tasks until Today: View uncompleted tasks that are due on, or before, the current date.

Tasks that meet the criteria selected in the Current view will be displayed in the grid at the top of the screen. To edit a particular entry in the grid double-click the row it is in. For more information on how to add and edit tasks click here.
