Clicking 'insert' to add a new task has the following behaviour:
  • If the task is not associated with an order, then you get an empty task window to enter a new task
  • If the task is associated with an order, then you will be asked to select from a pop up menu (to the right) to pick from:
    • Entering a brand new task
    • Selecting one or more tasks already associated with the patron to quickly add them to the project. This makes it easy to add existing task to a new project. You can still drag them from the patron task window to the project task window; this makes it easier
Opens the Task Detail window for the highlighted task.
This provides a popup like the one on the right that will ask you if you want to:
  • Remove the task from the project. That means the task will NOT be deleted. It will just no longer be associated with the project. You can find the task under the patrons, donation, calendar or whatever it was connected to before - just not the project. You can also associate the task with another project later if you wish.
  • Completely delete the task. This will delete the task, any relationships with other tasks, the patrons who are part of the task, any resources, and such that are part of the task.
Description You can search for a number of items within most task lists using the various variables to the right.
