Some CRM software systems (and even project management software) only allow you to assign a Due Date for your Tasks when you create them.
That might work fine if your Task is starting immediately.
But what about Tasks that are going to be started in the future? Such as scheduling a follow up call with a prospect in three months.
For those Tasks, you want to be able to set a Due Date and a Start Date. In LoTops, that’s easy to do. When you create a Task, you’re always offered two date fields — one for the Start Date and one for the Due Date.
