About PTAEO - Task
Tasks allow departments to separate project activity into subcategories based on the department's business needs. It serves as a sub-project and should not be used for purposes covered by other segments (such as award or expenditure type). Every project must have at least one task. When a new project is established, departments have the option of using a default task (00 – General or 1 – Sponsored). If you do not wish to use a default task, you may create a new task or tasks using the Task Form.
There is no limit to the number of tasks that may be associated with a project. However, it is recommended that departments be thoughtful about how they use tasks and endeavor to make that use both meaningful and consistent within the organization.
