eWay-CRM is closely integrated with the Task module in Microsoft Outlook. You may want to:

  • create tasks right in eWay-CRM while you are working with a project, or
  • create tasks in Outlook first and link them to items in eWay-CRM.

In both cases, as a result, tasks will appear in the tasks list in Outlook.

  3. Fill in all the necessary fields—Subject, Start and Due Date, etc. and specify a Superior item (contact, company, lead, project or marketing campaign). In case you leave the field empty the task will not be saved to eWay-CRM and will stay in Microsoft Outlook only.

  4. Click Save & Close.

eWay-CRM allows you to create automatic tasks when the status of projects is being changed, e.g. a task can be created for a Project Manager once a Financial Manager changed the status to Invoiced.
