Lesson 2: Modify Task Type

Remember that at the beginning, before introducing the tasks in your project, among the general settings for your project, you could specify the default task type from Schedule section of Options dialog.

Using the Task Information dialog you can refine the task type for each individual task, to better fit your scheduling needs.
