Introduction
Last updated on 26 July, 2017

A project is a group of tasks attached to a client. Each project can include any number of tasks, as well as important information such as deadlines and descriptions. Using projects allows you to efficiently organise work that you are doing for a client by putting all information in one place.

Knack Automation allows you to schedule projects to be generated on a schedule. This is helpful when you are doing the same work every month for a client, and need the same set of tasks every time.

Scheduling a Project
Last updated on 26 July, 2017

Scheduling a project is important when you are repeatedly doing the same work for a customer or client, and require the same tasks to be performed each time. By automating the issuing of projects (and therefore associated tasks), you can ensure that no items get lost or forgotton.

To schedule a task;

  • Locate the project.
  • Click on the project name to open the project details view.
  • Click on the main summary at the top to open more options.
  • Click "schedule project".

Knack Automation is a PRO feature. You will not be able to schedule projects on a Forever Free account.
