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

First, create 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 to and create comments on a task in order to keep files and feedback orderly across your project.

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

Move / Complete:  This allows you to automatically move this task to another pile, or directly to your Completed pile.

Track time (Premium 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.

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 Active taskboard.

--Lower Row--

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.

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.

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


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!
