Document Tasks

Viewing tasks assigned to routed document


Tasks are document related job assignments that must be performed by Docsvault users.


You can see the Task In, Task Out and Personal tasks related to the document in Document Tasks panel on the right panel of Docsvault Explorer.


If this window is closed you can reopen it from the View menu, point to Right Panel and then click on Document Tasks.

Select any document in the center panel to see the tasks associated with it in the Task panel.


Document Tasks Panel allows you to create, assign, edit, delete a task and change its priority according to its importance. Tasks can also be marked done once it has been completed.


For example:

In Docsvault, you can use Task feature to route documents from person to person so that they can each complete their document management tasks, such as reviewing documents, approving their publication, or managing their disposition.  For instance, an invoice passes through an approval process and then is routed to the accounts payable department.


At each step in the approval flow, the user can forward the task to complete the cycle of approval. The recipient of the task will be informed by task alert notification and email alert (if set).



Tasks Manager allows you to do the following:


You can set a reminder on the Personal tasks that will remind you at the right time about meetings, special occasions, or important days of your life.

You can set priority to your tasks so that high priority tasks are sorted together at the top in the listing and easily viewed.

Documents can be attached with the task so that they can be directly opened for viewing from the task window.

You can route documents to other users or group of users along with task without having to go through email.

You can receive email notifications for all task activities.

You can get up to-date status of all the events and task in the Task events log.
