Creating Additional Tasks
This procedure covers creating additional tasks and modifying tasks in Grants Accounting (GA).
Finding Projects & Project Templates
Tasks-Creating & Modifying Tasks
Every project must have at least one task. When you create a project from a project template, GA Projects creates the one task from the template by default. This task is named Task 1 and the task number is 101. GA Project Managers (and higher level GA responsibilities) can add additional tasks to a project. All task names should conform to the UVA naming convention of mixed case. Task numbers can range from three to eight characters; for example, 102,102.33, 10222, or 12345.67. Basic task information includes task number, task name, start date, and task description.
Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) refers to the method of structuring a given project into discrete tasks for the purpose of cost accumulation and monitoring. A project must have at least one task in the WBS; but may have more tasks if desired. These tasks can be further broken down into related tasks and subtasks.
