Tasks can be assigned to a Project, and sub tasks can be created without any limitation to the Task and Sub Task level. A new task can be added to an existing Project or a Task of the project by following the steps listed below:

A task can be added by only a Project Leader or an administrator. To add a task, click on the 'Project' menu and click on 'List Projects'. Double click on the project that needs to be edited and follow the steps listed below:

  • Select the 'Task Tree' tab.
  • Enter a unique name for the task in the 'Task Name' field in the first blank row.
  • Select the 'Duration' start and end dates for each task by clicking the associated calendar icons and selecting a date. Task durations are limited to the duration of the parent, whether that be another task or the project.
  • Select the 'Apply' button to add the new task. Note that the new task appears in the left frame, under the project name.
  • Repeat steps 2 through 4 to add additional tasks. If no empty rows are available to enter a new task, select 'Add Task' to create new rows.
  • To change the order of the tasks, use the scroll up and scroll down buttons. For example, to move the second task up one placement, select the (^) button to the right of the second task.
  • To move the task start and end dates without changing the duration of the task, select the 'Slide' button. Select a new start date and then select 'Slide Dates'. The start and end dates for the task will be shifted.
  • Select the 'Apply' button to apply the changes to the task order and the start and end dates. Note that the new tasks now appear in the left frame, under the project name.
  • To add sub tasks, select the name of the parent task in the left frame and then follow the steps for adding tasks as above.
  • Select the 'Save' button to save the newly added tasks.
