Client – a client in todo.vu typically represents the person or organisation using your services. Tasks and projects must be associated with a client unless they are in-house tasks or projects.
Project – a project in todo.vu represents a grouping of todo.vu tasks. Projects must be associated with a client unless they are an in-house project or a project template.
Task: A todo.vu task is an action item or idea created by a todo.vu user. Tasks show up in todo.vu as individual units sorted by workflow status (Snoozed, To-do, Done), and can house attributes such as descriptions, checklists, file uploads, labels, comments and more. Every activity you undertake can be a task in todo.vu.
Assignee – an assignee is a task attribute, denoting the user in charge of that particular task. There can only ever be one assignee on a task. When a user creates a task, they automatically become its assignee, but admin users can change a task’s assignee at any time.
Follower – a follower is a task attribute, denoting a user following that particular task. There can be any number of followers on any task. Followers receive push and email notifications about updates on their followed tasks; they can also interact with tasks, such as to leave comments, upload files and more.
Floating time entry – A floating time entry is a record of time that has been logged in todo.vu but not yet connected to a task. You will only see Floating time entries on todo.vu’s calendar marked as ‘No client – Not linked to a task’. There will be no record of them anywhere else in your workspace. Floating time entries allow users to track and record time quickly without worrying about the details right away.
Calendar entry – An entry on todo.vu’s calendar can be an actual time entry, billed time entry, predictive time entry, due date, or reminder.
Time modal – The Time modal appears when a user creates or modifies a time entry on todo.vu’s calendar. The Time modal allows users to update the time entry duration.
Tasks modal – the Tasks modal appears from within the Time modal, allowing users to select a task on which the time entry is to be recorded. A user can create a new or search for an existing task from the Tasks modal.
The todo.vu hierarchy
Data in todo.vu is organised in a simple hierarchy, like so:
- All Time is tracked, recorded (as time entries), and linked to specific Tasks.
- All Tasks – and their time entries – belong to specific Projects.
- All Projects – and their tasks and time entries – belong to specific Clients.
- All Clients – and their project, task & time entries data – belong to a single Workspace.
Time is tracked at hourly billing rates by todo.vu users.
Tracked time is recorded in detail on tasks as time entries. Tasks are grouped according to projects, and projects are grouped according to clients.
Time data is therefore recorded both in minutes and monetary values, according to individual users, tasks, projects and clients.
All of this data is stored in a single todo.vu workspace.
