Everyone who deals with daily task management needs to know how to track tasks and make work more efficient. There are common rules for the best task tracking. These rules are listed below:

  • Status. The first step in the best task tracking is to review current status of your tasks and percentage complete. When you know current status you can consider whether your tasks are done on schedule.
  • Deadlines. It is important to compare current task status with task deadlines to find out how much time (minutes, hours, days, weeks) are available for you to complete your tasks.
  • Priorities. Together with deadlines, you should track priorities of your tasks, so that in case of any delay or procrastination, you could decide which task to do first considering priorities.
  • Delegate in Case of Necessity. In some situations you will not be able to do all your tasks personally, so some help will be in great demand. You can delegate a part of your duties to someone who have enough competencies and time to do your tasks.

By following these simple yet important rules you can make your task queue less loaded and achieve better task management. The rules will be best for those people who still do not know how to track tasks but who strive at achieving success in managing their tasks and jobs.

Task management software will be required to follow the rules. For example, some people like to manage tasks in MS Excel , Outlook, Oracle and other solutions. However, using Excel to supervise tasks is not convenient because originally MS Excel is designed for managing spreadsheets and making calculations but not for managing and tracking tasks. Using SharePoint to control jobs in MS Outlook is a great but expensive solution because SharePoint requires installation and administration of MS Server. Today not so many small companies are ready to invest much money in deploying and maintaining MS Server to monitor activities in MS Outlook . Other less popular yet powerful solutions for managing and tracking tasks require some evaluation and testing before users are ready to purchase and install one of the solutions.
