Defining project tasks

The main unit for tracking the various activities involved with a project is a project task. We will create a new task by navigating to the Task menu in the Project application and clicking on the Create button. Here, we'll define the various aspects of the task:

  • the name of the task (this is required)
  • The stage to which the task belongs (also required)
  • The project to which the task is assigned
  • The deadline date of the task
  • The responsible party assigned to the task
  • Any tags you would like to associate with this task
  • A description of the task

For our example, we have filled out the task as seen in the following screenshot:
