Entering Tasks

Entering tasks in Project is as easy as typing in a name for the task in the Name field in a view with a table, such as a Gantt chart. This section covers the creation and editing of tasks in both the Gantt Chart view and the Network Diagram view.

Entering Tasks in a Sheet or Gantt Chart View

In the project window, open the View menu and click Gantt Chart.

IMPORTANT Click the Gantt Chart icon on the View bar.

Select a blank Task Name field and enter a task name. Press the Enter button or select another row or column to create the task.

By default, the left-most field in the Gantt Chart view is the Task ID field, and it shows you the current ID of the task.

Enter the expected length of the task in the Duration field. The default duration for a task is one day.

By default, the task's start date is set to the project start date. It is best not to enter a new start date.
