Business Description


The 'Responsibilities' tool helps us manage tasks effectively in our system. You can set, assign, and keep track of tasks, making sure everyone is responsible. It has fields like Name, Assigned to, and Description, giving a clear place to describe each task. Connected with 'Positions' and 'Roles,' it links tasks to our team structure, making it clear who does what. The tool also helps in performance reviews with 'Appraisal Items,' making it easy to evaluate how well tasks are done. Linked to the 'Activities' tool, it ensures tasks match our big goals. With an easy-to-use interface, it helps us see what's happening in real-time, making our work transparent and responsive.


The Responsibilities module is comprised of multiple fields, each meticulously crafted with a distinct purpose in mind, serving to capture and organize essential responsibilities-related information. Here is a detailed explanation of each field:

Name The concise title or description of the responsibility.
Description The detailed content outlining the specific tasks and obligations associated with the responsibility.
Assigned User The user designated to manage or handle the assigned responsibility.
Date Created The date and time when the responsibility was initially created.
Date Modified The date and time when the responsibility was last edited or modified.

Note: Fields marked with an asterisk are required. Saving the record without providing input to them beforehand won't be possible.


The 'Responsibilities' module is intricately connected with several key modules, amplifying its utility across various aspects of organizational management. These related modules include:

Responsibilities in our organization are closely tied to specific positions, and the module easily works with the 'Positions' tool. This means we can perfectly match tasks with where they fit in the organizational structure, making everything clear and efficient.

Also, we can link responsibilities to specific roles using the 'Roles' module. This way, people in certain roles know exactly what tasks they need to handle.

Our 'Responsibilities' module is a big help in performance reviews because it connects with 'Appraisal Items.' This link makes it easy to evaluate how well someone is doing their assigned tasks, giving an extra layer to our review process.

In our day-to-day work and ongoing projects, the module smoothly connects with the 'Activities' tool. This connection ensures that our tasks directly contribute to our bigger organizational goals, creating a work environment that's well-coordinated and goal-focused.
