The "Task" component allows you to create tasks directly via forms. You can create tasks to be added to a specific task list and assign them to users. Access tasks created via the form in the task module.

Note: Tasks can be created on project-level forms only. You won't be able to create tasks if you are using this component in a company-level form or for a company form.

Add the component to the form by dragging and dropping the task component or simply clicking on the component box.

Click on the pencil or double-click the component to edit.

Edit the pop-up on the left-hand side to set parameters.

Component Label: Changes the "Add Task" option at the bottom. Leave it as is.
