  2. Labels - Give more info to a task or group similar items.

  4. Subtasks - Divide the work into small tasks, assign members to each of them and the select a workflow phase (to do, in progress, blocked ordone).

  1. Checklists - Checklists are useful to simply organize to-dos for a task or to organize your process. You can create multiple checklists and see their progress over time.

  2. Attachments - Upload or drag your file and drop it anywhere on the task.

    Mark as done: When done, click this checkbox and a done date will be added to the task.

    Watch: Follow the task activity and get notified when the task is updated.

    Option menu:
    - Duplicate task: You can create a template task and duplicate it to save you setup time. Nutcache let you choose where you want a task to be duplicated (project, task list, status and position within a status) and select the information you want to be duplicated (Assignee members, subtasks, checklists, attachments, notes, etc.)
    - Move task: Move task to another task list.

  2. Task options - This section displays key information. Available options are start/done date, planned start/due date, business value, task points, return on investment, estimated time, time logged and service. Task options can be managed by project managers and administrators.

  3. Comments - Comments on tasks are a perfect way to ask questions or share information to other team members. You can use the @mention to draw someone's attention to a high-priority conversation or message.
