When you assign a task to someone and they do a poor job, who ends up being responsible?
Sometimes you might be lucky enough to get away with it—but in most cases, it's prudent to verify that a task you assigned to someone else was done correctly.
Jumptree Project helps by maintaining a task workflow where only the person who created the task can close it. That way, you can make sure the task was properly completed.
When you assign a task to someone, the default status is Not Started. Once they start working on it, they can use the Active and On Hold statuses to keep you informed of their progress.
Once the person has Completed the task, the status will indicate that it needs your approval.
Both the Dashboard and the Tasks Overview page will show you tasks that need your approval.
In theory, breaking down tasks into easy-to-understand, next action to-dos is a great idea.
In reality this rarely works.
What you might consider easy-to-understand will often be misinterpreted. And what you think is a single action might actually involve many steps.
Oftentimes there's a back-and-forth process where you assign someone a task, they ask for clarification, you elaborate some more, and so forth.
Jumptree Project helps by keeping a chronological record of all the changes and comments regarding the task. That way, you'll be able to see the lifecycle of the task, and if anything goes wrong, you'll be able to pinpoint exactly where it happened.
