Sometimes, when dealing with work management practice, we may face quite unofficial term – "task at hand". The synonym is "task-in-progress" or "work-in-progress" urgent/important jobs, but this doesn't completely explain the meaning. The definition: task that you are currently working at, task that is on the top of importance and urgency for you because of its current incompleteness. Usually "task-at-hand" means a pending job that doesn't enable you to fully concentrate your attention at other activities, because urgency and uncompleted status of work may suppress and disturb you. Actually "task at hand" idiom speaks for itself – your hands have their limits for holding things – you cannot take too much tasks, because the more tasks at hand you have – the less is your effectiveness in processing new workloads. There is software designed to facilitate your approaches and to streamline working processes to avoid overloading with tasks and excessive commitments.
