Tasks are useful to indicate what needs to be done. You can use it for CRM purposes to follow up on important leads, remind yourself of vehicle MOT's, remind yourself to update the contract of your crew member, or prepare a list of tasks for your crew. Rentman's notification system ensures that you won't forget a task.


Examples of tasks

  • Projects: Contact customer X days before the project to check in on their wishes.
  • Projects: Ask for customer's feedback X days after the project has ended.
  • Contacts: Check in with an important lead to keep the contact warm.
  • Vehicles: Bring to garage for yearly MOT.
