Edit, complete, or delete tasks

To manage a task on the calendar:

  • Click the name of the task.
  • In the dialog box, you can take the following task actions:
    • To open the campaign in a new browser tab, click externalLink [campaign name]. You can also change the color associated with the campaign by clicking the dropdown menu and selecting a new color.
    • To mark the task as complete, click the checkmark in the bottom left..
    • To edit the task within the calendar, click Edit.
    • To delete the task, click Delete.

Managing access and filtering tasks

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.
