What is Task Diary?


 Task Diary is a journal of work that is kept by an employee for the purpose of making records about tasks and managing personal assignments. It is a task management tool that enables employees to keep all their tasks in a single journal in which every entry is marked with some details, including due date, priority and notes.

 Using an electronic task diary (software) grants employees the following key benefits:

  • Focusing: employees can view diary entries to identify activities that have the greatest priority and urgency.
  • Patience: there is no need to be in a hurry as all tasks are listed in a single journal.
  • Planning: employees are enabled to plan their tasks ahead by priorities and due dates.
  • Growth: workers gain a new perspective for professional growth and development as they are enabled to reach higher performance and productivity.

 Task diaries are similar to to-do lists; however, both kinds of task management tools have some differences. Firstly, a typical task diary is rather an informal and personal list of tasks an employee creates to record personal work items, while a to-do list serves as a formal document for registering and managing employee task assignments. Secondly, task diaries include only general details on entries (such as timeframes, priority and notes), while to-do lists are specified with a number of task attributes that describe to-do items. In addition, task diaries are best for managing personal tasks, while to-do lists are helpful for planning and managing team tasks and project work.
