Working with Projects

What is a Project?

A project represents a group of tasks and notes. It is used to organize related tasks and notes all together.

A project has the following information:

  • Parent: a project can belong to another parent project, creating a hierarchy of projects and subprojects.

  • Title: a title or short description of the project.

  • Code: a short code to identify the project in the TaskQuark pads.

  • Color: a color to identify the project in the TaskQuark pads.

  • Description: a longer description of the project.

Projects and their subprojects

A project can be a subproject of another project when a parent project is assigned. This creates a hierarchy of projects and subprojects. When a project has no parent, it is a top-level project.

The subprojects are used to organize the project tasks and notes in a tree-like structure. This is useful to group related projects together when working with their tasks and notes.

Project title, code, and color

Every project has a title to describe the project. In addition to that, a project has a shorter code and a color to identify the project in the TaskQuark pads.

Tip

Use a short, one or to words code and a color to quickly identify the project in the TaskQuark pads. This code will appear in the TaskQuark pads as a small-colored label next to the task or note titles.

Project description

The project description can be used to explain the project in more detail, and also to store additional information about the project.

The Default Project

Every user profile has a default project. This project is used to store tasks and notes that are not assigned to any other project. The default project is created automatically when the user profile is created, and it cannot be deleted. However, it can be renamed from the initial “TO DO” to any other name and edited like any other project.
