Creating and Editing Tasks
There are four methods for creating a new task:
Method 1: From Taks view, select New in the toolbar.
Method 2: From any view, select New and then New Task.
Method 3: Right-click a task folder in the Tasks sub-panel in the left vertical panel and select New task from the context menu.
Method 4: The last and by far the fastest way, is to click on the top line (the line is separated by thick line) fill in required fields and press Enter.
See Task Editor.
The Task Editor dialog will open.
