Let's Get Started

Dock 101 Guide

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.

The Basics


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. Both "My Task" and "All Tasks" for your organization can be viewed here.

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.

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.

View Displays

"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 & drop it

We made ordering tasks easy. Simply drag and drop them in the order you want.

Click on a task on your Home screen or within a list. The drawer will slide out from the right side of the screen to reveal all of its 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


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.


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 needs.

Building 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.

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.
