6.3.1 Create a Task

The "Create a Task" feature in Onethread allows users to create new tasks within a project.

Users can assign a task name, description, due date, and other relevant details.

This feature helps organize the project into smaller, more manageable parts, making it easier to track progress and ensure that all tasks are completed on time.

Pre-conditions to use the Feature:

  • Users must have an account in Onethread.

  • Users must be a part of a company.

  • Users must be part of a project.

  • Anyone in a project can create a task.

Steps to Use:

  • Click the "Item" button from the Create + button at the top right corner or “New Item” or Add New Item from a Company dashboard or a Project dashboard, or the “+ Create a task in Sprint” button from inside a Sprint.

  • A form will appear. You can create Phases, Milestones, Tasks, and Issues from here.

  • Select the Task & project.

  • Give the task a name.

  • Choose the assignee. You can assign multiple assignees to a task.

  • Provide Status & set the Priority.

  • Give a Start Date and Due Date if needed. Note that the Start date and Due date are required for tasks to appear in the Calendar and Gantt chart. The start date must not exceed the due date.

  • Set Reminders & Repetition (if needed).

  • Set the Story Points (if needed).

  • Type or create a Label (if needed).

  • Add Dependency Task (if needed).

  • Add a short description of the task in the Description box.

  • Onethread gives you rich text support options for description formatting. Choose your preferred one and change the description format accordingly.

  • After providing all the necessary information & checking, hit the “Create Task” button.

  • Voila! You have created your very first Task related to your project.

Important Notes;

  • Assignees are project teammates. When you add colleagues to a project, they become project teammates.


  • Enhanced productivity: Breaking down a project into smaller tasks makes managing and tracking progress easier, leading to increased productivity and better results.

  • Improved project organization: Tasks can be created and assigned to specific team members, making it easy to track who is responsible for what.

  • Better collaboration: Creating tasks helps foster better collaboration among team members, as everyone knows what needs to be done and can work together to achieve the project goals.

  • Better task management: Creating tasks allows for better organization and management of workloads. It helps to keep track of project progress, ensures the timely completion of tasks, and avoids any confusion or overlap.
