Task Properties

The Task properties subview contains a number of tabs pertaining to the currently selected task. Instead of Having a subview for each type of data, only one tab control is available, so the effect is that of a dashboard. One can switch between them directly, without selecting what is needed through a sequence of menu commands, which may or may not be immediately accessible.

The tab pages are:

  • General - contains essential task property values, as well as several flags (checkboxes), all of which are read-only with the exception of the Hide Bar and Rollup checkboxes. (see below)
  • Resources - these are the resources that participate in the completion of the task with the respective resource data
  • Subordinate - If the task is summary then subordinate will contain a list of the selected tasks children.
  • Assignments - Contains the resources assigned to the task, together with the assignment information
  • Predecessors
  • Successors

The Hide Bar and Rollup checkbox in the General tab, can be specified by the user and the current view is updated. This is useful when project files have been saved with hidden bars or rollups not specified. These options offer greater control over what is being viewed.
