FastRecruit with premium features add-on subscribers have access to the Task feature which allows you to assign Tasks to yourself or other coaches. Tasks are meant to remind coaches to complete important activities such as texting a recruit to congratulate them on a big victory or reaching out to an AAU coach to ask some additional questions. Tasks can be managed from both the web portal and the mobile app. This article will cover Tasks on the web portal.
All FastRecruit users can document the last time you contacted each recruit. This will help identify recruits that you haven't touched base with in a while and prioritize your communications.
