Why it is better to track tasks by groups
Tasks within one group or project often should be done in a certain order following one another or they may depend on each other. It's not easy to focus on tasks of particular project or task group if you have plenty of them on the list. You will track the jobs better and probably faster if you do it within a task group or even task subgroup (of course if the assignments of different task groups are not dependent)
Tracking tasks within a group
Once you have a list of tasks that belong to one task group or subgroup you can sort tasks the way you want. If you sort these tasks by priority you will see what tasks should be done first, if the important tasks were successfully completed, if less important tasks need a higher priority at the moment. If you sort tasks by number you will see if the order in which the tasks were supposed to be done was followed strictly or some of the tasks were missed.
- Start your task tracking software
- Set filter to Task Group or Task Subgroup
- Sort tasks within the group by required field, ex.: number, name, priority, etc.
