How to Mark Tasks and Events as Complete

MARK TASKS AND EVENTS AS COMPLETE

A Teamup Calendar can be set up to organise many things all in one place.  While it is not specifically designed to be a task management tool, it does facilitate marking tasks and events as complete. This could be useful for tracking team projects, monitoring to-do lists or keeping a simple diary.

CALENDAR SETUP

We recommend setting up your calendar as follows :
– Create a sub calendar that holds current tasks
– Create a sub calendar with a different colour for completed tasks
– Once a task is complete, move it from the ‘Current Tasks’ sub calendar to the ‘Completed Tasks’ sub calendar.

HOW TO MOVE EVENTS FROM ONE SUB CALENDAR TO ANOTHER

You can move the event between sub calendars by opening the event in the event editor and changing the calendar selection from the dropdown list of calendars.

Or, in the Scheduler View the sub calendar is automatically updated if you drag the completed task to the completed tasks column. In the end of the day, if you want to move the remaining open tasks to the next day, the easiest would be to switch to a grid view, e.g. a 2-week view, then drag and drop the remaining tasks as demonstrated below:

Drag and drop tasks to the completed tasks sub-calendar, then move remaining open tasks to the next day

You can enable the Scheduler View and Multi-week views in Settings > Calendar Views.

ADD SYMBOLS

A nice touch is to add a tick symbol (via the ascii code) to the title of the event. This can be done by pressing alt and the numbers 251 together to get a √ in the title of the event like this:
Completed event
Alternatively this web page allows you to copy some useful symbols – just click on one of them then paste it directly into your event title.

VISUAL OVERVIEW

Should you set up your sub calendars to be in distinctly different colours, at a mere glance you will be able to see which events are current and which tasks are complete. You could even add further sub calendars for more detailed progress monitoring. eg ‘Tasks on hold’ or ‘Tasks awaiting approval’

TIP: You can easily show and hide the various sub calendars to de-clutter your view. So if for example you’d like to see the completed tasks only, click on the arrow next to that sub calendar name.
