Tasks view

The Tasks view displays tasks that you add manually. You can associate a task with a resource in the Workbench, but this is not required.

The following icons are used by the Tasks view:

The first column indicates whether the task is completed. Completed tasks are flagged with a check mark, which you add manually.

The second column indicates whether the task is high, normal, or low priority. 

The Description column contains a description of the line item.  You can edit the description of user-defined tasks by selecting Properties from the context menu.

The Location column indicates the line number of the line item within its associated resource.
