Tasks break your project into smaller, actionable, accountable steps. 

First, define your task journey using custom lists for your workflow and then let's begin by creating a task!

Tailor a tasks' description to define the the task at hand. Create subtasks and assign them to specific team members.

You can upload files and docs to define task specs and use comments on a task to tag members and notify them of updates.

A task has a bunch of features across the top to help you assign, plan, and track.


Task IDs: This allows you to copy the task-id of a task and mention it in project discussions, chats, and comments to allow others to quickly open the task from anywhere by simply clicking on the ids.


Move / Complete:  This allows you to automatically move this task to another pile, or to mark them as complete.

Duplicate: This allows you to duplicate a task within a project with all of its details, tags, and subtasks.

Track time (Business Plan only):  Track the time you spend on this task. Note that you can only track one task at a time.

Subscribe:  Allow for notifications when this task is updated. You will automatically be subscribed to tasks that you're assigned to and when you edit any task details.

Hide from Guests:  Hide this task from project Guests so only you and your team can see it.

Copy Link:  Share this task as a URL link.

Archive Task:  Remove this task from your open tasks.

Assignees:  Assign users to this task. Note that users assigned to a subtask are automatically assigned to the task.

Due Date:  Add a deadline to this task. Tasks that are not in the Completed pile by their due date are considered overdue.

Tags: Use default Priority tags or create customized Tags to a task to use the Filter by Tasks feature on a project's task-board as well as My and All tasks.

Tie to a Milestone: Tie this task to a milestone to have its status propel Roadmap progress. To learn more about this, check out our Automate Roadmap Progress article.

Dependency: Lock this task, making it unable to be moved or completed until another task is complete.

Reminders: Set custom reminders to be alerted via email, in-app, and push notifications when you'd like to.

Recurring: Set this task to recur based on customized parameters.

Start Date: Indicate when this task should begin being worked on.

Story Points: Assign a predictive value to this task to determine how many days you estimate the task to take. Story Points roll up on Milestones and projects as well.

By using the many functions that a task offers, tasks can be an in-depth progress tracker towards a larger project goal, a simple to-do list, or anything in between!
