If you are just getting started with Tasks, take a look at this video!

☝️ IMPORTANT: Before you create a Task, you must first create a saved report of donations (transactions list). Once you save a list of donations, you can then create task automation from that list. Think of it like this: each time a new donation enters that specific list, you can receive a task!

1) To access your Automated Tasks, click Tasks in the Sidebar menu.

2) Click New Tasks Automation

3) Select the settings for your new Task Automation and click Create Automation.
