Adding a Task

  1. Click File ▸ New ▸ Task, or press Shift+Ctrl+T.

  2. Select a task list in the List dropdown list.

  3. Enter the task information.

  4. Click the Save button, or File ▸ Save.

If you just want to quickly add a task by entering a summary you can directly enter it in the list of tasks.

You can also define a time zone, a category, or a classification for the task, or add an attachment.

Assigned Tasks

Evolution can be used to assign a task to multiple people.

When you assign a task, you can specify the attendees in several categories, such as "chair" or "required". When you save the task, each attendee is sent an email with the task information, which also gives them the option to respond.

This is similar to meetings.

To create an assigned task, click File ▸ New ▸ Assigned Task.
