How to create new task

A manager can create tasks for employees. These tasks can be assigned to one or more employees, depending on the project. Better still, a task can be assigned to a group of employees.

Note: When you assign a task to a group, each member in that group automatically gets assigned that task. New members joining that group will also get the task in their task lists.
