Assign tasks

Assigning tasks with the aid of our Task Schedule is the best way to maintain student progress in BridgeU. Click here to view our Task Schedule


How to assign tasks


Step 1: Click Students in the left-side menu.

Step 2: To set a task for a specific group of students, select the student name and the Set Task will appear above. To set a task for all students, click the check box next to Student and it will select all. You may wish to use the filters before doing this. Please click here to find out more about filtering and tasks setting. Once you have selected your student or group, you can now press Set task. A pop up will appear for you to select the appropriate task type. 


Step 3: Now you can select one of the BridgeU tools, or None (custom) to set a custom task. 

Step 4: Fill in the details, including the task deadline.

Step 5: Click Create Task to assign the task to the selected students.


When a task is created, students will receive an email as well as an in-app notification. They will also receive automatic email reminders 3 weeks, 1 week and 1 day before the due date of the task.


Note: For any tasks related to a BridgeU tool (e.g. Profile Builder, Universities, Recommendation Requests, writing builder, etc.), you will have the option to see the student's relevant work by clicking "Review" or "View progress". For "None (custom)" tasks, you will be able to only "Approve" or "Refuse" students' submission.
