Features You'll Enjoy in Zoho Tasks
Zoho Tasks offer you various features that will make your work easier. Explore the following features to know more:
Having control over your task list while using multiple applications can be difficult. With the Unified View, you can stop toggling between applications to manage different tasks from different apps. Add, access, and make changes to all your Zoho CRM, Zoho Projects, and other Zoho apps' work items right from your mailbox.
One time add for recurring tasks
Sometimes, you may need to do the same work multiple times. However, you don't have to add the same task to your app again. With the Recurring Task feature, set a recurrence pattern for daily, weekly, or monthly, and sit in peace while we remind you when it's the time for repeats.
