Dashboard with tasks

February 12, 2020 at 11:30am

Hey guys, I have to design a simple dashboard with two types of tasks: tasks that await for the user to start, and tasks that are in progress (with a progress bar showing how much time remains till the task is done). I wonder what's the best way to design it - should I put them both on the same list? Should I split the component into two different sections?

What do you think? Do you have any good references from real products? Thanks <3

It would be better to put them on the same list. You could add a filter at the top for the user to see only pending tasks.

The relationships between the tasks is most important here.

Do tasks depend on each other? If not, put them on the same list with a filter (All / Started / Not started).

You can split list in 2. Left side - call to action button. Right side - progress bar with percentage. You can get a lot of inspirations from app/web for online learning courses.
