Monitor your tasks

Tasks are issues in your org that require attention. They can include errors, informational items, and to-do items.

There are two ways to view your tasks:

  • In the Tasks widget of the Admin Dashboard.
  • On the Tasks page at DashboardTasks.

View tasks on the Admin Dashboard

The Tasks widget displays the following information about your tasks:

  • Type: There are three types of tasks:
    • Error: These are errors occurring in your org. Okta recommends that you fix them as soon as you can.
    • To-do: These are recommendations from Okta that help you manage your day-to-day administration tasks.
    • Info: These are informational messages about things you can do to enhance the functionality of your org.
  • Items: The number of affected apps, users, or groups.
  • Description: A summary of the task with linked details.

Click the filter icon to filter tasks by Active or Unsubscribed.
