As you dive further into the features of your Eko workspace, you’ll see tasks show up in a variety of different views and forms. Tasks were designed to be as easily understood and straightforward as possible, but you may still have questions after seeing them in different places. In this article, we’ll explain the different task views you’ll see, and how to ‘read’ them.
Tasks can appear in the Eko app in three main ways:
Type 1: A Task in Bubble View
The bubble view of a task appears when a task is sent via a chat group, and shows basic information about it: the Title of the task (ex: Prepare Conference Materials, Complete Training, etc.), the Deadline, and the Time that the task was assigned.
Type 2: A Task Card View
A task card view appears when you navigate directly to the Tasks tab, and shows an overview of the most important details. The task details will look slightly different depending on whether you’re viewing it on Eko mobile or Eko web/desktop.
- On Eko mobile, the card will list the Task title, a preview of the description, the due date, profile pictures of the users it has been assigned to (and how many), how many comments it has, and the current status and priority (high, medium, low). There is also a small box you can tap to quickly mark it as completed.

Type 3: A Task in Detailed View (Full View)
When you click or tap into a task from the Tasks tab you will access the detailed view. This view contains all the relevant information relating to that particular task, including any info from the views mentioned above. This view will also show you:
- A detailed log of all assignees, including when they mark it as complete.
- A full view of the description, if included.
- A breakdown of a more detailed checklist for the task, if it was included.
- An area for comments, where you can have a real-time chat with other users regarding that specific task.
- If you’ve received the task, it will also give you the option to respond to the task (Approve, Reject, etc.).
Great! Now you can read any tasks you come across like a pro.
