Let's Get Started

How to Use Dock

We want you to get up and running on Dock as quickly as possible. This short guide should get you started. Once you’re through it, feel free to explore, too.

What is Dock? A simple, HIPAA-compliant task management and collaboration platform, built specifically for healthcare.

A place to call Home
 

We’ve created a dashboard we’re simply calling Home. It displays your assigned tasks across all of your lists, organized by due date: Today, next 7 days, or simply No date.

The Basics

What’s a List?

Lists are sort of like folders where you keep all your tasks, all nice and organized. You can create as many lists as you like, and name them whatever you want.  Lists are designed to help you organize your tasks.

What’s a Task?

A task is what we call your to-dos. But instead of Post-its and random unintelligible notes, they’re organized into neat lists, with the information your team can share and access at any time.

Some of the basics

Features you should know about

Dock’s feature set was designed to be intuitive and easy to use. Here are some of the primary features you can use every day.

Min/Max Views

"Full view" shows all of the subtasks and comments face up. "Slim view" is a way to get the big picture, with all of the subtasks and comments collapsed.

Drag and Drop Graphic.png

Drag & drop

We made ordering tasks easy. When you mouse-over a task you will see three bubbles appear which means it's ready to drag and drop.

Open the drawer

When you click on a task, the drawer will slide out from the right side of the screen to reveal all of the details.

A red dot = new

A red dot next to  comments, due dates, 
labels, or attachments means something new was added since the last time you logged in.

Look for the blue dot

If you see a blue dot next to the number indicating how many open tasks there are in a list, it means something new was added to that list.

Filtering Graphic.png

Groups

Organize a list using Groups. Add as many groups as you'd like and feel free to move them to any location on the page.

Expanded filtering 

We have robust filtering

that allows you to use multiple criteria, so you can quickly find exactly what you're looking for.

A major part of organizing

Building a Task List

The first step to ditching all those Post-its and washing your hands of all those scribbled notes is creating and building out a task list.

1. Add a List graphic.png

1. Start by creating a task list

To create a new list, simply click the button in the upper right corner of the window. Name a list by a team, workflow or process. After the list is created, you can add tasks to it.

3. To edit/delete, click the dots

If you’re an admin of a list, you can delete or edit a list by clicking the three dots to the right of it. A drop-down menu will appear and give you the choice to delete or edit the list. You can add/remove users here as well.

Adding a new task is a snap. Simply click on the box with “+ Add Task” in it, then type in your task and hit the enter key. The new task will save to your list.

Getting your tasks together
Anatomy of a Task List

Now that you've created a list, let's take a quick look at what's actually in there.

Find the title of your list up top

When you click on a List, you get an inventory of open, new and completed tasks.

Peruse your tasks

Lists are set up to easily scan your tasks, with the ability to click on any one of them to get details.

Breaking down a Task:

For projects bigger than one task

Some tasks are too complex for a single task. So you have the ability to create subtasks and assign them to different team members to complete.

Creating a Subtask

Subtasks on your list

Subtasks are easy to create and appear under the main tasks for easy tracking.

Sample of a subtask:

Where all the details are tucked away

Check your drawers

Double-clicking on the body of any task or subtask will slide open a drawer full of all the details and comments on that task.
