Airtable comments + colour alerts
Airtable is one of the premier collaborative database software for organising your business. Two of its key features are task commenting and colour coded alerting. With task commenting, team members can collaborate and leave comments on specific campaigns to ensure that the job stays on track and all involved are updated throughout. It’s a simple way to reach out and present ideas in one platform so every revision or suggestion is recorded for auditing. Colour alerts are there to indicate the urgency of tasks to be completed. It helps to determine which tasks should be prioritised so the work goes smoothly and without a hitch.

Start/End of day reporting
Reporting tasks is necessary now more than ever. Give your team members more visibility by instructing them to update you on where they’re at with the task you’ve given them. Have them report to you which task they’re going to start on the day, and the progress they’ve made by the end of it. A more accessible way to accomplish this is through Airtable’s Daily Activity Form where they can determine what their task is for the day, provide brief descriptions for each task, and input their pending tasks when necessary.
Daily activity report graphs (Airtable)
This goes hand in hand with Start/End day reporting. This serves as a visual representation of your team’s tasks progress to measure and evaluate how efficient they are in accomplishing their work. A summary of your organisation’s work so you can determine areas of improvement for your team.

One way for us to pinpoint areas of improvement is through our Airtable’s daily checks tab. It lets us keep track of our staff’s progress and calculate their coloured flags per task every day when they finish work.
