Define User Tasks

In Business Central, you can create tasks to remind you of work to be done. You can create tasks for yourself, but you can also assign tasks to others or be assigned a task by someone else in your organisation.

Managing User Tasks

The User Tasks page shows all tasks, and you can easily create and assign new tasks. When you create a task, you can specify the start date and due date, and you can add a link to the page or report in Business Central where the user must do the work.

For example, you can create a task for yourself or a coworker to view all posted sales invoices. In that case, you link the task to page 143, Posted Sales Invoices. In the following screenshot, someone is creating a task for MeganB to review the posted sales invoices.

Example of a user task.


Use the look-up in the Page field and then use the Search field to find the page that you want.

You can link to any page, but you cannot link to individual entries, so make the description as explicit as possible, such as writing "Please take a look at customer no. 10000 and make sure they don't have overdue payments.".

Picking Up User Tasks

In the Business Manager, Bookkeeper, and Accountant Role Centres, a tile shows pending tasks that are assigned to that user. To pick up a task, simply choose it from the list of pending user tasks. In the ribbon, the link Go to Task Item opens the page where you can do the work.

When you have completed a task, simply mark it as completed.

Deleting User Tasks

If you want to bulk delete all or some user tasks, you can use the Delete User Tasks report. In the request page, you can set filters to determine which tasks must be deleted.
