    Overview

    From time to time on Jobs there are various tasks that need to be completed which may not appear on your checklists (Task Templates), e.g., arrange meeting with the landlord to negotiate rental payments.

    For these Ad hoc tasks, you can add new tasks to Jobs to record these.  You can also create tasks for other users, e.g., a manager can create a delegate a task requesting an employee ring a creditor back that is requesting information.

    In entering tasks, we will examine linking Actions and Resources to tasks.
