A task assigns a single job to a user that must be accomplished by a specific date for a project. A Task List is a series of single tasks that must be completed in a specific order and completed by one or more users on specified dates. A task is automatically added to a Project Profile when any of the Company and/or Contract Profiles added to the project have existing tasks stored in their Profile. A task that is specific to the project is added from the Tasks screen in the Project Profile, which displays when the Tasks link is selected.
