Add a new task or done task for yourself or a co-worker.
Check Notify when done if you want to be notified when the Owner completes the task.
Check Delegate to specify in the Owner field who is responsible for setting the final owner (avoids unassigned tasks from cluttering the list of multiple managers, if there are multiple managers).
To add a new task for another company (e.g. a close vendor, a personal account, etc) check “Task for another company” and fill in the TaskRing company ID and person’s name. For example, if you are at work at ABC Co and what to add a task to your BobNBetty personal account to call a plumber when you get home, you could add a task to your personal account.
See Main Grid for details about each field.
