Overview

You can create task templates to help you assign tasks when you create projects. By default, the tasks will be assigned to the owner specified in the template, but you can change them when you create the project.

Select the applicable tab for your edition of Responsive.

      • For example, if you have set the task to be created 5 days after a project, and the task is added to the project after 6 days, the task will start immediately. However, if it is added 3 days after project creation, the task will start 2 days later, that is 5 days after project creation. The same is applicable for before/after project due date as well. However if task is set as a part of project workflow, it is expected to be added to the project along with project creation.
    3. To add a checklist, click Add new check list. You can create multiple checklists.
    4. To create this task along with project creation (if selected as a part of workflow services), select the checkbox. You can then select the project type from the list for which the task has to be created.
