Creating tasks

You can create personal tasks for yourself or assign tasks for others and associate them with projects.

Note that you can create tasks that are unassigned to a project only for yourself. These tasks are called personal, and they are available only for you. If you want to create tasks for other users, you must assign them to projects.

To create a task:

  1. From the main navigation menu, click Pencil icon > Task.
  2. In Description, provide a brief overview of the task.
  3. In Project, select a project for this task.
    The default selection is None, which means it is a personal task for yourself and only visible by you. You cannot create personal tasks for other people. By default, the task is assigned to you.
  4. To assign the task to someone else, click "x" next to your avatar, and then select the user to whom the task must be assigned.
  5. In Due Date, enter the date you want this task to be completed by.
    The default due date is tomorrow.
  6. If you want to use the content editor to describe the task and add tags to it, click Advanced and fill in the necessary details.
  7. Click Add Task to add the task.
Tasks assigned to projects are displayed on the project Tasks page. Personal tasks appear on the Tasks page of the user.
