Working with Task Groups

Working with Task Groups in Anywhere
In the dynamic world of project management, organization is key. Anywhere's board feature offers the flexibility to categorize and manage your tasks efficiently through the use of Groups.

What are Groups?
Groups in Anywhere are logical divisions that help you categorize your tasks or line items. They allow you to segregate your tasks based on relevance or any other criteria that suits your project's needs.

Benefits of Using Groups:
Efficient Organization: Easily categorize tasks based on their nature or stage.
Flexibility: Create as many groups as required and rearrange them as per your preference.
Visual Clarity: Differentiate between task categories at a glance.

How to Utilize Groups in Anywhere:

Creating a Group:
Open your board. By default, a new board contains two groups.
To add a new group, click on the New Group button on the right side of the board.
Rename the group as per your requirement.

Collapsing/Expanding Groups:
For a cleaner view, collapse groups when not in use.

The board remembers your preference, so the next time you visit, the groups remain in their previous state.

Working with Tasks:
Tasks, or line items, are the core components within groups.
Add a new task by clicking on the New Item button or simply by typing in the last row of a group.
Tasks can be reordered, edited, or deleted as per your project's progression.
