General structure of Taskomat™

Taskomat™ has a tree structure where each entity has a specific purpose and dedicated functionality.

The structure starts with the client and offers the flexibility to organise projects by dividing them into workunits that will contain the individual work activities, the tasks.


General Taskomat™ structure

Who is the client in Taskomat™?

The client is the person who commissions the work and is on top of everything else: all task, work unit and project data is always reported on the client, so you can do aggregated analyses.

Every other element within Taskomat™ must refer to a client if we are to use the platform correctly.

What is the project in Taskomat™?

In Taskomat™, the project is a kind of folder that allows you to organise work units. It doesn't have a deadline per se and it doesn't have a budget per se, it simply keeps together all the work units aimed at the same project.

On the project you can do aggregate analyses of specific tasks and work units.

What is the work unit in Taskomat™?

The real core of Taskomat™ is the work unit. The work unit is an intermediate entity between project and task.

The work unit is what tracks the budget and time of your tasks. When you create it, you simply assign it a budget (i.e. the price at which you sold it to your client) and based on your hourly reference rate, Taskomat™ will derive the hourly limit, i.e. the time available to complete it through tasks.

What is a task in Taskomat™?

Tasks are timed activities that consume the budget of work units: if the work unit serves to track the budget, the task serves to track the time.

You can create both tasks with an hourly estimate and tasks without an hourly estimate, so you have extreme flexibility. When you create tasks in a work unit, you must then schedule them in order to work on them, whereas if you create tasks directly on the dashboard or planner days, you must then link them to a work unit in order to count all data correctly.

It is not possible to create project or client orphan work units, precisely because Taskomat™'s prerogative is to track all data in an aggregated manner. Instead, you can create tasks on the fly and hook them up to the desired work unit later.
