Creating and Editing Tasks
Creating new 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.
Tip:As an alternative method, it is also possible to create a new task from Calendar view. See Task Editor.
The Task Editor dialog will open.
