In order to further help tracking the progress of a project or defining the steps that need to be done, project tasks where implemented. A project is assigned to an user, by default every task in the project will be assigned to the owner of the project. But you can assign tasks within the project to other users to spread the workload.
Tasks are calculated to a percent complete progress for the project – meaning in the project it self you can see how many tasks are there, how many are completed and the resulting percent completed value of the project.
It is not necessary to use tasks, but it can be a huge help e.g. in migrating users or tracking and accomplishing single steps.
You can import tasks from a simple text file, each line in the file will create a new task in the project.
In the SysConfig you can define if you can import tasks once one or more tasks exist, or if you only can import tasks once.
