Written by Ashleigh Barnes on August 19th, 2021

Have you been managing tasks effectively at your property? NewBook has an array of Task Management features that can help your team achieve their daily goals with efficiency. Let’s explore the top 3 tips as recommended by NewBook Productivity Supervisor, Jordan Cousin…

1. Task Checklists

Do you feel satisfied by ticking off items on your to-do list? Well, you should try using Task Checklists! This is a great tool to ensure that your team is on track with their tasks and that all aspects are completed before ticking it off the list. This means that you can set up checklists for individual tasks.

For example:

Task Checklist: Clean Villa #1

  • Empty Bins
  • Clean Bathroom
  • Wipe Down Kitchen
  • Make Beds

This will keep your employees motivated and accountable!

Why Use Checklists? No matter how experienced your team may be, checklists will reduce the chance of missing necessary steps and will help you feel confident that tasks are being executed correctly!

2. SMS Tasks

Did you know that SMS messages have a 99% open rate? So, if you’re looking for an effective way to remind your team of upcoming tasks, why not send an SMS reminder? In NewBook, you can send out a task to an assigned staff member, which will include a code. Then, when the task is complete, the employee can simply text back the code, and the task will be marked as complete in NewBook.

Top Tip: You can also use SMS to update your guests when tasks are complete, such as their room being ready for check-in!

3. Time Tracking for Tasks

By enabling the instance setting “Enable Time Tracking for Tasks”, you can monitor the task start time, end time and show the total time that was taken to complete the task.

Top Tip: You can use this tool to determine time goals for your team! Setting realistic and achievable goals is a great way to keep your team motivated.

These are just a few of our favourite task management tools that you can use in NewBook. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to try these tools out for yourself and boost productivity at your property!
