There are two levels of tasks on Aphex, both can be used to represent work and can be used interchangeably to build plans. Tasks can be added using the "Add Task" button found at the bottom of each section of your plan, or using the right-click menu. Tasks can be broken-down into children using the right-click menu.
For projects that import data from their master schedule, imported Tasks will represent master schedule activities and can be broken down into more detailed children that represent the short-term plan. The link to the master schedule is maintained as the External ID is passed on from parent to children.
To keep plans logical and structured consistently across the project, some rules are applied to data that can be assigned to parents and children.
Tasks without children
Tasks with children
Converting Tasks to Subtasks and vice-versa
You can find a Task's Parent Field in the Parent Column on your Gantt. A Task's Parent Field can be used to move a child from one parent to another in your plan by selecting a new parent, you can only select parents that you own.
You can also remove a Task's parent to convert it from a child to a parent. In reverse, a parent can be converted to a child by giving it a parent.
