Where is my task list?

Your task list can be viewed from the “Tasks” module in MangoApps.

There are 3 buckets for tasks which are “Task View”, “Milestone View”, “Project View”.
Each bucket has their own Primary (show) filter, secondary (view) filter, and “sort by” options.

Task View Bucket.

A Central location to view all of your tasks, meaning it’s populating for each individual user.

Your Task View primary filters are “Pending”, “Delegated” and “Completed”. followed by the secondary filters; “All”, “by Type”, “by Priority”, “by Status”, “by Milestones”, and “by Project”. With appropriate sub-filers for each.
Sort options are; Sequence, Due Date, Priority. Second sort options are Ascending or Descending.

Milestone View Bucket.

A central location to view all of your milestone progress.

Your Milestone view filters are the same as the task view bucket, except there is no milestone filter under the secondary filter.
The “gear” option just below Task tools on the right allows you to select different milestones.
