Now that you have done all the necessary basics, it is time to get into the intermediate level of the work management tool.
What's in the box?
'What's in the box?' projects the facilities which will be helpful for customization purposes of a block. Set dates, priorities, assign users and make each task a separate chapter in the work area.
This blog deals entirely with the detailing that one would want to know after clicking on a task in their Due.work workspace. In short, useful ways to emphasise their functions. Let's get into the works to do.
To make your team, you must find team members. And for that, you need a platform to assign them and work with them. The first thing you'll see 'inside the box' is the option for appointing members to your task. You can add them according to your requirement or make it a joint project!
NOTE: Each member must have their due.work workspace to use each other. If not, you can invite them to spread your network any day, with due.work, you can assign different members in different blocks.
The date when you're starting your work indicates the 'start date' of the task. It can be any date and any day. It is up to you and your schedule. Once you click on the start date, a calendar appears wherefrom you can select the time when you'll start. If the date is not today, or tomorrow, due.work will remind you to start the task on the date you've already assigned.
It resembles the end date of a task. The functionalities are similar to the start date, i.e., you click on the option, and select the end date from the calendar.
'Labels' is the third option in the box. You can choose multiple labels for one task and even create labels according to your comfort. Apart from the defaults, create newer by clicking on 'create/edit labels' under the section. Here, you can add labels with a customised name, colour and use. Add more than one tags, we have no limitations for you to stop.
Priorities are flags which are visible with bright colours in your due.work space beside each task. The facility of setting priority is that you get a quick recall on what you have set for yourself and which one is more important to work on. The four default priorities are high, medium, low and no preference. Add them according to the urgency the task holds.
In subtask, you can add the pieces of information that your task will hold. Which means you can add the little details of your task and work according to them with your team members. Once these subtasks are completed, you can mark them as complete or delete them to create a new list of subtasks.

To make a task a bit more informative, we have designed a description for each block you want to edit. I'm not digging the usefulness of a description as it does what it has to - add more information to the task. What makes it more promising is that there is no limit in the description box. You can combine sentences to paragraphs; whichever you feel comfortable to work with.
Be it a video, PDF, link, or an image. You can add them to a task by using Due.work. By attaching files, you make the teamwork easier and convenient.
So, you start the project by assigning members; you make them understand everything, add details for all, then you talk and work on the task.
This was all for the second blog of the deep dive: due work blog series.
Note that, all these facilities are available for each task of each workspace you create on the application. As I've mentioned earlier, you can create each of them in multiple numbers.
Happy working! :)
