Searching for a task on the ICM Dashboard
With the new enhancement to the Task Manager section in the ICM Dashboard, an administrator can search a task using the Assigned drop down and search box.
The new ‘Assigned’ drop-down lists all the admins and a value named Unassigned. Unassigned is used to display the tasks which are not assigned to any admins during creation.
The search returns results with matches in Description and notes. The search is applied across pending and completed tasks. The number of completed tasks gets adjusted with search criteria.
Export ICM Tasks to Excel
Administrators will now be able to export tasks into excel files. Export can be done by clicking on Excel button to the right side of New button.
Exported tasks will have the below details.
- Task Id
- Assigned To
- Repeat Frequency
- Created Date
- Updated Date
- Deleted Date
- Due Date
- Sub Task Details
- Sub Task Status
The tasks will be arranged with Pending tasks first followed by Completed tasks
Pending tasks will be exported in the same order as they appear in task section of the dashboard. Completed tasks will be in the order of completed date and time.
If a task has subtasks, the exported file will have task IDs repeated for the number of subtasks.
|Task Id||Assigned To||Description||…||SubTask Description||Sub Task Status|
|10||John Doe (jdoe)||Task 5||…||Sub Task 1||Completed|

Adding and deleting multiple attachments to a task
When a task is created or edited, administrators were previously able to add a single attachment to a task. With this release, multiple attachments can be added to a task.
Attachment section towards the bottom with browse button enables the admin to attach files.
Clicking on Browse button allows you to upload files. You can select one file at a time or select multiple files together and attach to the task. If the attachment count exceeds 4, a scroll bar appears on the right side.
One file at a time
Attachments are always checked against the allowed extensions in the application. The application will reject any file outside the allowed file types and the file will not be uploaded. The error message below is displayed when the wrong file type is attached and update/add button is clicked:
Any attachment can be deleted from the task using the new delete icon against each attachment.
