There are two main areas when the portal will be beneficial:
1. Posting a task to be completed:
In the Manager Area: Create Task and View Applicants for Task
a) Create Task - If a manager has a particular task that needs completed, they post the details of the task, the skills required, the duties of the task and the estimated time required to complete the task. The task is then available to view by staff. The manager can also, through View Tasks see all tasks that have been created for their area, and edit any details where required.
b) View Applicants – through View Tasks, View Applicants, the manager can see who has registered interest to carry out this piece of work and they can select the most appropriate staff member to complete it, based on the information given. Once they have selected a staff member from those who have registered interest, they inform the staff member via email and mark the task as closed. This removes the task from the available tasks list.
2. Optimising capacity, skills and knowledge of your team members:
In the Staff Area: View Available Tasks
Some team members may have capacity to undertake additional tasks outside of their own work area. This area of the portal allows managers to view which tasks are available that may be suitable for team members to complete. They can then discuss with and encourage team members to express interest in completing the particular task, advising them to detail in the portal, how they meet the task requirements.
Please see the Connect Task Portal: Online User Guide for further details.
