Task properties are critically important data pieces essential to task-related processes of task initiation, performance and controlling. Each task property holds certain informative value which is a particular data piece that together with others forms up a complete picture of task’s impact, scope and requirements. Task property management is a way to control task parameters to have them accurately changed when required, and to keep tracking on how well they are observed in order of better performance. Task scope includes time parameters showing when task is expected to be done, so it is necessary to keep control over scheduled task properties which are about on-time delivering of task results in terms of working process timeline. Describing the complete set of task properties means definition of all task’s inputs and outputs such as work purpose, quality etc. Task workforce management can be carried out with a help of special software, for example in Outlook task properties can be set through a number of standard and custom attributes, and with a help of VIP Task Manager they can be also shared among multiple team members.
