Chapter 5. Creating a Task List > Entering Task Names

Entering Task Names

You can create task names by typing into the Task Name field of the Gantt Chart view or by pasting names that you have copied from elsewhere. The most common method is undoubtedly the old-fashioned method—typing—but both methods are described in the following sections.

Typing Task Names

When you type text into the Task Name field on a blank row, you create a new task. You can use any combination of keyboard characters and spaces, and the name can contain up to 255 characters. You complete the cell entry by pressing Enter, by clicking the green checkmark in the Entry bar, or by selecting another cell. You can cancel the cell entry before entering it by pressing the Esc key or by clicking the red X in the Entry bar. In that case, the field reverts to its former contents.
