[NEW FEATURE] Task Update, Including User-Specific Tasks!


We have overhauled how Tasks work in Bloomerang so it is easier to use tasks for more things in your organization.

Tasks Goodness

First and foremost, we added the ability to associate a user with a Task. You can leave a newly created task assigned to yourself or pick another user in the system!

User Selection

With the update to add user specific Tasks, we needed a clearer way to view them, so we updated the Tasks tile on the Dashboard. Now we show two items: Your Tasks and All Tasks, with totals for each. Depending on the due dates of the tasks in your organization, you can have up to three categories within each section: Overdue, Due Soon, and Due Later.

Dashboard Tasks

Clicking on one of these sections will take you to the new task list page with filters already applied.

Click Through Task List

We’ve also reworked the Tasks list screen to allow you to easily filter for the items you need by clicking on tags or typing search terms into the search box.

Dynamic Search Tasklist

There are a number of other items that will make tasks more useful:

  • Create tasks directly from the Dashboard
  • Tasks completed as Interactions are now able to be reported on
  • Purpose is no longer a required field
  • Tasks can be created without Constituents

For more information on how these features work, you can look at our Task help pages.

    Are users notified via email when a new task is assigned to them?

    I am glad Star Wars was used for example. I have much deeper love for the people at Bloomerang after seeing that. 😉
