TasksIf resources are the force that gets the Rubic's cube moving, tasks would be the squares that should be in their rightful place for the cube to solved. Meaning tasks are assignments for people, bookings for rooms and the machinery, and reminders for Carl to let other people pet the cat, too.
Tasks are the work units that make up a project. Tasks can be allocated to resources just by dragging and dropping the task box in the right resource's row or moving an already existing box between the different rows. The duration of a task is automatically set by the length of the task box on the timeline. It can be modified manually in the task dialog. If you have a task but not the assignee, you can leave it unassigned, too.
