How to assign athletes tasks
You can assign tasks to individual athletes on ProductiveRecruit via impersonation. If you want to utilize checklists to automate multiple athletes' tasks, check out our guide on creating and managing checklists.
How to assign a task to an athlete
- Impersonate the athlete
- Navigate to a college favorite page
- Add the task
1. Impersonate the athlete
Impersonate the athlete you want to assign a task to. You can follow our guide on impersonating users if you have never impersonated an athlete before.
2. Navigate to a college favorite page
Tasks on ProductiveRecruit are linked to a specific college program. You can either head to a college the athlete has already favorited, or favorite a new one via the college search tool. Check out our guides on searching for college programs and managing college favorites if you have not used these features before.
For example, in the screenshot below, I am on the athlete's favorites tab and can click the cog icon of the college program I want to add a task for:
I will then be taken to the college favorite page (for Michigan in this case) and will see the task widget in the top left:
3. Add the task
Once you're on the college favorite page, click the "+" icon in the top right of the task widget, fill in the task description, and due date/time, and assign the task user to the athlete:
Note, you could assign the task to yourself if you want to remind yourself to do something on the athlete's behalf. Click "Add Task," and the task will be saved:
The task will now appear in the task widget, and when it is overdue will appear in the athlete's inbox. You can review our article on how athletes can manage tasks and checklist items to learn more.
