Welcome! This article will introduce you to Pyrus, guide you through creating your first task, inviting teammates, and planning your next steps.
Pyrus’ “tasks” are the core of team communication. A task is a communication channel built around a unit of work with a clearly defined goal. Your employees use it to exchange documents and other media as they hold the discussion necessary to close the task.
Click New task in the left menu. Define the task clearly by giving it a clear and concise name. Add any details to this task name in the body as necessary. Pyrus automatically auto-saves your drafts as you type them, so if you accidentally close the Pyrus window or shut down the computer, you will be able to continue from where you left off.
Pyrus Tip: Giving tasks good names will make it easier to manage them.
Examples of good names:
Examples of bad names:
Decide who will be responsible for the task from the beginning. If this person isn’t on Pyrus yet, you can type their email address in the field below the task to invite them to join.
You can add several people to a task anytime, even after that task has been created, but the task must have one assignee at all times.
The first time you assign a task to a new user, you will need to confirm that you are sending them an invitation to join your organization’s Pyrus account. Click Save when you are done, and the new user will receive an email about the new task. If the user is already working within Pyrus, he will receive a notification from within the mobile app.
Pyrus Tip: You can click Save & New to save the current task and immediately start a new one.
To find a recently created task, use the Search function or navigate to the Recent list. When a teammate responds to your invitation, the task will appear in your Inbox. See Working on tasks together to learn more.
