Configuring a Task

Task configuration menu has 3 main tabs: Overview, Forms & Attachments, and Notifications.


Overview tab contains basic information about the task.

Task Name suggests you fill out the name of the task that the user will see on his/her device. By clicking on the Dynamic Values icon on the Task Name field, in the input configurator, you may select the list of fields, values from which you’d like to see in the task name after it is completed by the user.

Assignee who will perform the task gives the ability to select the respective group/user who will perform the task. Let’s take a closer look on how you may configure the assignee for the task:

Please note: both Group/Particular User in Group and User – performer of the task options can be configured starting from the second task in the Taskstream.

Priority is a section where you can set a task priority for the end user that will be displayed on their device. Contains the next states:  critical, high, medium, and low. By default the priority is medium.

Comment is a section where you can add a list of actions or a simple description that accompanies the task. These actions are for viewing purposes of the end users and will be shown on their devices.

Due Date & Reminders is a tab where you can set the execution duration of a particular task and configure the reminders that the performer of the current task can receive. By setting execution durations, the end users will be notified about Task timelines and overdue status. This allows you to manage the redirection of both User and Guest Tasks in case they are not completed on time. If a Task becomes overdue, it will be automatically redirected to prevent any potential disruptions in the process.

You may set the date and time in order for the user to receive a notification to start the initial task. To do this, put the checkmark next to the “Remind to start the initial task” option, select the preferred time and how you would like the notification to be sent to the user: via email or by pushing the reminder to their device.

You can specify the due date for a particular Task and set a reminder for when it’s due by selecting the checkbox next to “Remind the Task is due in x days” and selecting how you would like the user to receive the notification: send by email or to push the reminder to the user’s device.

There is an option to settle the redirection of the Task in case it becomes overdue by putting the checkmark next to the “Redirect the Task once overdue.” You will see an element “Overdue task” appear. You can link this element to another Task, and it will be automatically redirected if the original task becomes overdue.

Users can also receive a reminder regarding the Group/Task they were assigned to. The notification may be set by checking the mark next to the “Notify the task was assigned to a Group/Task” and choosing how the notification will be sent.

Forms & Attachments

Forms & Attachments tab was designed to add forms and attachments to the task to be performed.

Web forms are primary elements of work in a task. A web form contains inputs, checkboxes, etc. that will be further filled in by the user.

You can select a form from the Fluix Form Library, create a new one in the Form Builder, reuse the already used one from other tasks in this taskstream, or import the fillable PDF from your cloud storage or your computer:

If you choose a form from the Fluix Library, and the same form has been already used in one of the tasks in the current taskstream, you will see it as a new form while the form name will stay the same.

Number of forms in one task is unlimited, thus you can select as many as you want and add them to the task.

Next to the name of the added form, you will see the Assign form fields, and Remove from the list options:

By assigning form fields you define the particular fields in a form for the Group-Assignee of the current Task. You can make particular fields required or view only for this Group. If the same form should be filled out by different Groups, you can assign the respective fields in this form in each task.

You may also edit the web form created in the Form Library in the Assignment mode by clicking the Edit form button.

Attachments do not travel within a taskstream, they serve as materials for review in a particular task (usually these are manuals, instructions, or handbooks).


Notifications tab contains the list of possible notifications which can be received by the performer of the current task. Here you can select how to send notifications to your end users: by email, or pushing it directly to the app on a user’s device.

In addition, there is an option to notify a user about a task that due in a certain amount of days or is already overdue:
