A task is an essential part of any project. It’s an assignment that’s needed to complete the project. You might think of it as a “to-do” item, an action item, or a job assignment. Tasks are listed in the Tasks list, where you can view them in their entirety or add information.
You can create a task from the Tasks tab or within a specific Project.
To create a task:
- Go to the Tasks tab or select a Project, click on a task in the list. The new task will be created following the task you select, but you can move it.
- Click the Add Task button.
- In the new task line, type a name for the task.
- To move the task, drag the task to a new location.
Note: You can assign the task, add a description, and select a due date on the right of the page. For details and more information on using tasks effectively, see Using Tasks.
You can create a task in many other parts of BasicOps. Check out our Creating a task article for other ways to quickly create a task.
