Organise and check off tasks as they are completed

Crises generate a lot of vital tasks, many of which need to be completed under pressure. It is crucial that no task is forgotten, and that’s where the Crises Control task manager module and checklist feature come in.

The Crises Control task manager module is packed full of features all here to help you respond to and manage incidents of all kinds. With the crisis management system, you can assign and manage tasks, check off completed items, access digital assets, notify teams, and manage it all from one place.

Manage crises with the task manager

Task manager

Create and follow the progress of tasks as you respond and resolve to an incident. Assign task owners, set completion times, and escalate tasks as required.

Checklists

Organise tasks into checklists and tick them off as they are completed.

Command and control centre

Keep control over every incident in the real-time control centre. The control centre provides a 360 degree view of the incident in progress.

Keep everything together with the task manager

Create tasks in advance or in real time

Make sure that every task is covered by creating lists of tasks as part of your incident management plans, or add new tasks as they arise. Organise tasks into checklists that can be ticked off as they are completed.

Allocate owners for each task

Assign tasks to individuals and teams so that everyone knows what to do without asking. New owners can be assigned to tasks as you go as the team works together to resolve the crisis as quickly as possible.

Set timelines for every task

Define the completion times for each task, ensuring that tasks are carried out in the right order and on time. Track task progress on the incident manager dashboard.

Escalate uncompleted tasks

Set tasks to automatically escalate or be reassigned if they are not completed on time. Task progress can be seen in real time on the incident dashboard.

Review tasks after the event

All activities, communications, decisions, and timings are recorded so you can review performance and make improvements for next time.

Tick off tasks with the checklists extension

Checklists enable you to organise tasks into an order of execution, and tick them off as they are completed, showing real progress as you navigate an incident.

Why use checklists?

Task Checklist

Automate workflows on the task manager

Create automatic rules to manage tasks during the incident without human oversight.

Reassign unclaimed tasks

Automatically reassign tasks that have not been accepted by the designated person within the time limit.

Escalate uncompleted tasks

Automatically escalate tasks that are not completed with the required time frame.

Set predecessors for tasks

Plan the optimum workflow for an incident in your incident plans, and set the order in which tasks should be executed, including which tasks need to be completed before others can be carried out.

Provide delegation options

Allow task owners to reassign tasks to other responders if they are better placed to complete the task. The incident manager can also use this function to override predefined and real time task allocations.

Track tasks to completion

The incident manager has full visibility of each task’s status. Automatic alerts can be set up for when tasks have been completed, or when time limits have been breached.
