How Do I Create a Task from the Plan Grid?

As a Project Manager, you build the project plan.  There are two main ways to create a new task in the Grid planning method.

New Task Quick Entry

Begin typing in the New Task line at the bottom of the screen.  Hit Enter to create the task.

The newly created task appears at the end of the plan (after the last task).  Edit the task in-line or open the Task Information window to edit the details, such as duration, start & due dates, effort, assigned resources, etc.  Move the task and add dependencies as needed.

New Task Icon

Click the blue New Task icon.  The newly created task appears at the end of the plan (after the last task) as 'New Task.'  Edit the task in-line or open the Task Information window to edit the details, such as duration, start & due dates, effort, assigned resources, etc.  Move the task and add dependencies as needed.
