Create a task

Open the opportunity to which the task will be related and go to the Tasks tab. Click the Create button and select Task.

The newly created empty task will be displayed under a new section reflecting the name of the current stage of the workflow. This way, when you add more tasks on different stages of the workflow later on, each task will be displayed under the corresponding stage for clarity.

Enter the task description and click the confirm button. Then, you can optionally select the due date and the user assigned to the task (you can assign this task to yourself).

Once created this task will appear on the homepage of the user assigned to the task for an efficient follow-up. If there are several tasks, they're ordered by the closest due date on top.

You can search the list of tasks by entering keywords contained in the task's description.

Add pre-defined tasks according to the opportunity workflow stage

By default, any opportunity with a Pharma asset, Technology, or Consumer health asset has the In-Licensing (defaultDealType) workflow enabled that comes with 4 stages and pre-defined tasks.

  • Confidential Evaluation, with three default tasks:

    • Review confidential package,

    • Organize confidential evaluation,

    • Draft non-binding offer.

  • Due Diligence, with four default tasks:

    • Assemble Due Diligence Team,

    • Share access to Virtual Data Room,

    • Organize Due Diligence,

    • Finalize Due Diligence Report.

  • Negotiation, with two default tasks:

    • Agree on negotiation requirements,

    • Draft Agreement.

  • Contracting, with only one default task:

    • Sign binding offer.

To configure your own pre-defined tasks, go to the Deal Administration page.

You need to have a Manager role with Business Admin rights to perform this action.
