Add a Hotlist Task

Updated 3 years ago by Celina Kwan

You can create Hotlist tasks for Address Book entries, Campaigns, Customer Service cases, and Opportunities. You can also create personal Hotlist tasks. Personal Hotlist tasks are not associated with other entries.

When creating Hotlist tasks, you can set a due date and time for the task and an alarm in advance of the due date, and you can set a description and priority for the task.

You can also create tasks for other Maximizer users to complete. When you create a task for another user, the task will appear in that user’s Hotlist, and they will be reminded by an alarm if one is set. You can also choose to send an email reminder to the assigned user when you create the task.

  1. In the Address Book, Opportunities, Customer Service or Campaigns module, click on the entry to make it the current entry.
