Displayed Property

Example: If you wanted to display and edit the estimated duration of tasks for bidding and budgeting purposes, then you would choose Estimated Duration as the displayed property.


Turn the Default switch on if you wish to use this task group as the default task group for new projects and when switching for the first time into Spreadsheet mode.  Projectal will use this task group by default for any new projects.

Click Private to have this task group listed for only those users that are allowed to see it (e.g. yourself).  Click the Members button under Sharing to edit the list of users allowed to see this task group.

Editing Permissions

By default, when you create a task group, you are the owner of the task group and only you can edit it.  You may want to collaborate with other users on a task group and allow them to also make changes to the task group.

Click the Members button to edit the users who are allowed to edit and make changes to this task group.

Tip: Click on the Delete X button on an existing task in the list of tasks in the task group to remove it from the task group.

Tip: Click and drag a task in the list of tasks to reorder them into the order that you want them displayed in task group in Spreadsheet mode.
