Keeping Track of ToDos Items

ToDos lists are an excellent way to stay organized. Teamie provides you with a ToDos tool that will facilitate you to easily manage your “ToDos” list. You can keep track of your upcoming tasks such as homework/task posts, assessments and lessons that require your immediate attention. You can find your ToDos in the "Calendar" section as a filter toggle inside.

By default, the system shows the overall badge count for the upcoming pending tasks. And the task whose deadline is over, are moved to the Overdue section and are not included in the overall badge count shown on the top navigation bar. However, you can expand the Overdue section and mark a task post as done.

This article will guide on

Overview

You may find all your upcoming ToDos in your calendar. And the calendar is further divided into two categories as explained below:

1. ToDos - shows the list of pending Todos which you have not yet completed:

  • Homework/Task (is always created with a due date)
  • Lesson with available till date (or deadline)
  • Assessments with available till date (or deadline)

2. All Events - shows the following types of events:

  • All your ToDos that you see under ToDos category, along with its completion status
  • Offline Test/Task
  • Personal calendar events
  • Classroom calendar events
  • Google meet events (if Google meet integration is enabled on your Teamie site)
  • Zoom events (if Zoom integration is enabled on your Teamie site)
ToDos Categories

ToDos is further divided into three categories:

1. OVERDUE

You will also have access to your Overdue items (events whose deadline have passed) in the "Calendar" section. The number of Overdue items will be shown only for the last 30 days. i.e., system will hide all tasks that are more than 30 days overdue to avoid unnecessary clutter.

The Overdue category will always be closed/collapsed by default.

You will be able to mark a Homework/task post as Done from the Overdue category but you won't be able to access other materials such as lessons and assessments from ToDos once their deadline has passed.

2. NEXT 7 DAYS

By default, you will see the ToDos events for Next 7 days (including today). If there are no ToDos, you will see a message that says "There are no todos in next 7 days".

The NEXT 7 DAYS category will be expanded by default. Click to collapse it.

3. NEXT 3 WEEKS

This category will be open if the NEXT 7 DAYS category is empty and will display the list of upcoming ToDos from the next 3 weeks.

5. In case you have marked a homework/task post as Done accidentally, then you may go to All events tab and then click the Mark as Undone to undo the action.

Unavailable ToDos

As a learner, you may not be able to access a material (lesson, quiz or an assignment) if its deadline has passed or the material will be made available on a future date. In such cases, you will see a message indicating the reason why such materials are not available at that point in time.

1. The assignment highlighted in the following screenshot will be made available to the learners on a future date, i.e. when the assignment is published on the scheduled timestamp.

2. Similarly, if you are accessing a material (lesson, quiz or an assignment) whose deadline has already passed then you will be shown a relevant message after accessing that material from the Overdue categories.

Classroom Events Widget

1. If the fixed ToDos configuration is enabled on your site, then a calendar widget will also be shown on the Posts tab of all classrooms.

2. The widget will show you the ToDos / All events for the classroom for the next 7 days, in the respective sections. Unlike the homepage calendar, this widget will not show the overdue/past or next 3 weeks events. The idea being that users would be able to view the near future events quickly for a classroom.

There will be a View Classroom Calendar link in the widget, tapping on which will take the user to the Calendar tab of the classroom.
