Task Board - an easy task and activity management for deskless workers

The NIVY Watch Task Board stands out as a pivotal feature within the the NIVY Watch extension for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Crafted as a custom HTML component seamlessly integrated into the Business Central environment, the Task Board is a powerful tool that revolutionizes task and activity management for deskless workers. In this comprehensive blog post, we will delve deeper into the functionalities, significance, and nuances of the Task Board, exploring its role in enhancing operational efficiency and facilitating real-time oversight.

Overview of the Task Board Interface

At its core, the Task Board is a dynamic table that meticulously organizes and displays task completion data for a specific day. The rows of the table correspond to individual users within the NIVY Watch system, each presenting a snapshot of tasks assigned to them. The brilliance of the design lies in its simplicity, with tasks color-coded to represent their current state:

  • Planned tasks emanate a soothing light green hue.
  • Tasks in progress are easily identifiable by their vibrant orange color.
  • Completed tasks exude a sense of accomplishment with a dark green shade.

Streamlined Task Allocation and Management

The first row of the table acts as a reservoir for tasks awaiting assignment to specific employees. Task coordinators or shift managers find themselves empowered by the Task Board's user-friendly interface. With a few clicks, they can effortlessly create tasks, assign them to designated employees, or manipulate their timelines – all accomplished through the intuitive drag-and-drop functionality inherent in the Task Board environment.

Real-time Monitoring and Seamless Integration

One of the most notable features of the Task Board is its role in ensuring the smooth flow of planned tasks to employees' smartwatches or smartphones. Once a task is dispatched, employees receive immediate notifications on their smartwatches, allowing them to accept and subsequently mark the task as completed after execution. The beauty lies in the seamless bidirectional communication between the smartwatches and Business Central – every piece of data recorded on the smartwatch is automatically transmitted back to the Task Board.

Empowering Managers with Real-time Oversight

Managers, equipped with the Task Board, gain unparalleled real-time oversight into the status of tasks. The board becomes a dynamic canvas, reflecting the ebb and flow of activities throughout the day. Completed activities, depicted in light green, provide instant gratification, while the orange highlights signify ongoing efforts. This real-time visibility enables swift decision-making for managers. Should an employee lag behind in task completion, managers can promptly intervene, reschedule tasks, or delegate them to other team members.

Facilitating Communication and Adaptive Management

Beyond task allocation and monitoring, the Task Board accommodates communication needs. Managers can engage in text or voice communication with employees directly from the Task Board, ensuring seamless coordination and the ability to address concerns promptly. This adaptive management approach allows for on-the-fly adjustments, fostering an environment of agility and responsiveness to dynamic operational requirements.


In conclusion, the NIVY Watch Task Board emerges as a linchpin in the realm of task management for deskless workers within Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Its robust features not only streamline task allocation and management but also empower managers with real-time insights, fostering a culture of proactive decision-making and adaptive management. As businesses continue to evolve in the digital era, the NIVY Watch Task Board stands tall as a beacon of efficiency, facilitating the orchestration of tasks with finesse and precision.
