Add new tasks

With Project, you can add tasks (task: An activity that has a beginning and an end. Project plans are made up of tasks.) to a schedule to break the work (work: For tasks, the total labor required to complete a task. For assignments, the amount of work to which a resource is assigned. For resources, the total amount of work to which a resource is assigned for all tasks. Work is different from task duration.) into manageable pieces.

To quickly create a task, go to the Gantt Chart, select an empty Task Name field at the bottom of the task list, and then press Enter.

 Tip    If you have a task that repeats on a regular schedule, you only have to create it once. See Create recurring tasks.

Add multiple tasks at one time

The Task Form can help you add several tasks at one time, especially if the tasks have resource assignments (assignment: A specific resource that is assigned to a particular task.) and task dependencies (task dependencies: A relationship between two linked tasks; linked by a dependency between their finish and start dates. There are four kinds of task dependencies: Finish-to-start [FS], Start-to-start [SS], Finish-to-finish [FF], and Start-to-finish [SF].).

  1. Click View > Gantt Chart.

Task Views group on the View tab.

  1. Click View, and then select the Details check box.

The window splits, showing the Gantt Chart on top and the Task Form on the bottom.

  2. In the Task Form (bottom), type information about the new task:
    • In the Name box, type the new task's name.
    • In the Duration box, add the task duration.
    • If you want the task duration to stay fixed even if resource assignments are changed, check Effort driven.
    • Add details about the task in the form columns (such as the assigned resources and predecessor tasks).
  3. Click OK to save the new task, and then click Next to move to the next row in the Gantt Chart.
