Edit content tasks

To edit a task on the calendar:

    • To mark the task as complete, click Complete task.
    • To edit the task within the calendar, click Edit.
The tasks and events that appear on the calendar depend on the user's Contacts Access permissions. For example, if you have the Owned only view and edit permissions sets, you won't be able to see or edit unassigned tasks, or tasks assigned to other users.

If you have the required Contact Access permissions but can't see certain tasks, ensure you have selected the correct content and campaign filters in the left sidebar menu.

Please note: automated emails are only listed on the calendar once, not each time the automated email is sent via a workflow. To view automated emails on the calendar, select the Recurring email checkbox in the left sidebar menu.
