Creating New Tasks

Suppose you're performing significant work that doesn't fit the definition of any of your assigned tasks, yet is necessary to the completion of the project and should be tracked. To keep your project manager informed and to ensure that your work on the project is accounted for, you can create and submit a new task to the project manager.

To create and submit a new task, do the following:

1 In the side pane of the Tasks page, click Create A New Task. The Create A New Task page appears (see Figure 23-4).

3 Under What Outline Level, specify where the task should be placed in the project task structure.

4 Under Task Information, specify the new task name, any comment, the task start date, and the work estimate.

5 Click Save New Tasks at the bottom of the page.

The new task is added to your Tasks list, and is also submitted to the project server. When the project manager for the selected project reviews your update and accepts it, the new task is added to the project plan, with you assigned to it.

Note Creating and self-assigning new tasks is a permission granted according to the user profile set up by your project server administrator.
