Option

Enter the code representing the action you wish to take beside a Task in the list. The actions available are:

1=Create: to create a new task identifier. Enter this code on the first Task line where the Task ID is blank. You can enter your new Task ID here or on the Create Task Identifier screen that is displayed for you to enter the new task's details.

2=Review/Change definition to review and possibly alter details of the selected task. This option is not valid on the first input line displayed unless an existing task identifier is also specified.

When this option is used, the Review Task Identifier screen is displayed showing the details currently recorded for the task.

4=Delete to delete an existing task identifier. Note that a task identifier can only be deleted if its status has been set to 'CLS' or 'FIN'. This option is not valid on the first input line unless an existing task identifier is also specified.

You will be asked to confirm the deletion. When you have accepted, the Work Tasks screen will be redisplayed with the deleted task identifier omitted.

5=Review task history To review the selected task's history. If you enter this option on the first input line, you will also need to enter a task identifier.

When this option is used, the Review Task Identifier History screen is displayed with a list of objects that have been allocated to the selected task.

6=Print task history to print the history of the selected task. If you enter this option on the first input line, you will also need to enter a task identifier. When you use this option, a report is produced listing all the objects and their events worked on under this task identifier.

17=Last Action Details: indicates that you wish to review the last action details recorded for the selected task identifier. A screen showing the last action details will be displayed. This screen is described in Online Access to Last Action Details.

F16=Settings: displays the system settings relevant to Task Tracking. For details, refer to Export and Import settings.

The list of tasks shown may be filtered by entering a value in the Filter by Status.

If Filter by Status is left blank, all tasks will be shown.
