I want to add a new priority status to my tasks. How can I do it?

Category: General

Profit.co comes seeded with standard priority levels for tasks that can be readily used in an organization. You can edit the default priority levels or create new priority levels.

You need to have superuser access to create or edit the priorities. 

Step 1:

Log in as a Superuser. From the left navigation panel, Select Settings TasksPriorities 

You will be directed to the Priorities page.

Step 2:

In the Priorities page, you will be able to see the existing priorities list. You can enable or disable priorities using the toggle.

To edit the priorities in the list, click on the edit icon and you will be directed to the Update Priority page. 

Say, for example, you want to change the priority description for priority High from Tasks that should be completed ASAP  to Tasks to be completed by 20th February 2020.

From the Priority page, Select Edit Update Priority. In the description field, edit the text as “ Tasks to be completed by 20th February 2020”.

Click on the Update button to save the changes.

Note: The Toggle should be enabled for the changes to be reflected in the Tasks page.

Step 3:

To create a new priority Click Create.

You will be directed to the Create Priority page. 

Enter the Name and description of the priority you want to create and select the color to match. 

For example, let’s say you want to create a priority Urgent, 

  • Enter the Priority Name - Urgent.

  • Provide Description(Optional) - Complete in 24 hours. 

  • Assign a color code Orange.

Click on the Create button. 

Now the priority Urgent is created and is listed on the Priorities page. 

You can see the priority Urgent listed in the priority dropdown of the View Task page.
