In Buildium, tasks are anything that you or a team member have to do.

You can change the information entered into the original task, or update the status of a task as it's in progress.

Edit a task

To edit the task subject or category:

  1. Navigate to Tasks > All tasks.
  2. Click the name of the task you want to edit.
  3. Click Edit task.
  4. Complete the form.
  5. Click Save.


Update and assign a task

Use the Update task function to make notes on the progress of the task, update the resident or rental owner who requested it, change who the task is assigned to, or change the priority and due date.

To update a task:

  1. Navigate to Tasks > All tasks.
  2. Click the task that you want to update or assign.

Once the update is made, you will have 5 minutes to select to Undo the task update. By selecting to Undo, you have the option to edit the update or delete the update.
