Why do we need to create tasks?

A process in CustomerSuccessBox can be broken into smaller steps. Each step consists of one or more tasks. Tasks help you to stay organized and on track. It will help you to monitor your or your team’s performance and take timely action.

For example, If the Account's renewal date is coming the next month and you want to schedule a call with the right stakeholder about the renewal in the coming week. You can assign a task for yourself to schedule a call in the coming week or you can create a task for your team member to take necessary actions.

How are tasks created in CustomerSuccessBox?

Tasks can be automatically created through different processes in CustomerSuccessBox. We can also create tasks manually in CustomerSuccessBox.
In this section, we will discuss the different ways in which tasks are automatically created during the customer journey in CustomerSuccessBox.

  • While configuring a playbook

You can simply click on View account or View task to view more details or edit the task(if needed).


  • Email notifications will be received if it is enabled in CustomerSuccessBox.

Who can assign tasks and to whom?

Admins can assign tasks for an account to only those team members associated with that account like CSM, Onboarding Manager, etc. While assigning the tasks admin must also consider the nature of the task and the role of the team member. 

Also, a CSM or Super Manager can assign tasks to their other team members associated with the account. 

A team member with view-only privileges can assign a task to a fellow team member but no one can assign a task to such a team member. Learn more about how to manage team members here.
