Docket WP Version 1.0 is Now Available!

Though we’ve be quieter the last few days, things behind the scenes have been busier than ever. We had two big features that were slated to be done before the official launch of Docket WP— and we’re excited to announce that both of these features are now live!

Version 1.0 (now out of beta!) introduces two new features: Due Dates for Tasks, and Generating Email Reports. Let’s have a look at both!


📆 Due Dates for Tasks

You can now quickly and easily add due dates for any of your tasks.

This makes prioritizing long lists much easier and will lay the foundation for being able to push due-date-specific notifications and assignments in the future.

To add a due date to a task, hover over the task and click the new “Calendar” icon that appears to the right of the task title.

This will open a calendar that allows you to choose a date or pick from one of the quick selection options (“Today”, “Tomorrow”, “Next Monday”).

If you assign a due date to a task, it will display just below the task title.

Of course, adding dates to tasks is completely optional— so if your tasks don’t need due dates you aren’t forced to use them.

You can read the full documentation on this feature here.

Calendar options get to be a bit complex, so expect to see more developments in the feature as we make it more robust and customizable.


📧 Generating Email Reports

Now you can email a progress report of any list to whomever you’d like!

This is a great way to share the progress you’ve made on your lists with customers and team members— and it’s simple to do.

With any list open, click the List Options Menu button, and click “Email List Status”.

Next, a new window will open that will allow to to type in the recipient’s email address, the subject, and a custom message for your email. The system will automatically place a snapshot of the list including the list title, website name, and all the active and completed tasks.

Send Email Report

Just hit “Send” and your report will be on its way— it’s that simple!

By default the emails will come from the email address you use to sign into Docket WP and you’ll also be set as the reply-to address so if anyone replies you’ll get the email. Eventually we’ll have some options for you to be able to customize the from name and address too.
