One of the issues we sometimes face is forgetfulness. The consequences of this could be bad. Especially when we forget to do an important task.
Creating a task is the way Open tasks tackles this issue. Whenever there is a task for me to do. The first thing I do is to create that task on open tasks. By doing this, the app reminds me of the task I created. This eliminates the chances of me forgetting that task.
Creating a task is quite simple. Press the plus sign on the bottom right of the app. The create task page will show. That's where I provide answers to all the required field. Note it’s important to answer all the questions. This will help open tasks serve you better.
After creating the task, Open tasks takes the information I provided and categories them into different tabs.

This is where I check to see all the tasks that is about starting.
- Tasks due
This section shows me the deadlines for all my task.
This is where I view all my tasks.

This section is a very important section for me. When I'm creating a tasks, one of the required fields is the task priority.
Open tasks then takes that information and categories in order of priority.
There are four levels of priority.
High priority, Medium priority, Low priority, and No priority
This features helps me know which task I have to give more attention to.

Almost done, halfway there, way to go, nothing accomplished and done.
This helps me take decisions I need to catch up with tasks deadlines.
The main purpose of this app is to remind it's users of the task they created. The beauty of using open tasks is, it notifies it's users through the whole task period. From starting date, to due date. I could set to receive notifications everyday just to keep me reminded of my task.
