Access Your Assigned Task

As soon as your project administrator assigns you/mentions you in a task, you'll receive a notification in the top-right corner of your screen. Once you've received this notification, you're ready to begin!

If you haven't received a notification, check with your project administrator to ensure that sure that they both added you as a guest in a project and either assigned or mentioned you in a task.

To access your assigned task:


  1. Click the bell icon in the top-right corner of your screen to view your notifications.
  2. The task(s) which you have been assigned/mentioned in will appear in your notifications. Click on one of these notifications.

  3. You should now see the task window. From here, you can write comments to communicate with your colleagues, view attachments associated with the task, edit task checklists, or mark the task as completed.



Pin Your Assigned Task to Your Agenda

Now that you've accessed your task, you can pin it to your agenda, allowing you to access it at any time from the MeisterTask home-screen. To pin your task:


  1. Click the Pin button in the top-right corner of the task window (see below).
  2. Select a section of your agenda in which to pin your task (if you're a beginner, select the Focus section).

  3. That's it! The task is now pinned to your agenda. You can access the task at any time by clicking Agenda in the left sidebar. 


Guest Access to Tasks

Remember that guests can only access tasks which they have been assigned to or in which they have been mentioned. This means that if you un-assign yourself from the task or delete yourself as a watcher, you'll immediately lose access!
