When to use group tasks?
The Group Tasks (could be portrayed as "Service Packages") feature defines a group task in which, using a task template, a user role can be set to be responsible for a large group of tasks.
For example, the "Maintenance group A IV-Machine maintenance" task group uses the "Annual ventilation unit maintenance" task base and defines all ventilation units as belonging to the task group.
Now that "Maintenance Group A" role is responsible for the annual maintenance of all IV machines. You can also add or delete individual tasks to a task group afterwards or, for example, change the person responsible for the task. The changes are updated for all tasks based on this task group.
Group tasks should be used especially when the organization has several different bodies of responsibility for performing preventive maintenance work.
The biggest benefit of group tasks is that you can update hundreds of tasks on a single form by updating group task settings, such as the person in charge or the task template you use.
It is a good idea to use a group task whenever there is larger number of the same tasks that are performed on several different spots by the same responsible party. All of these tasks created at once will have the same due date, but when you add a new device to the system, you can set a new due date for it.
