Tasks are available to set up in Practice Manager and Practice Manager Plus (and are now referred to as Stand Alone Tasks) A Task is a work item process. For example, if you're running a Tax Return Job, each process involved is classified as a Task:
Each Task can be setup to automatically run when the previous Task has been completed. So once the Records are received, the next Task, Prepare Tax Return, automatically starts.
To collate a set of Tasks for one piece of work, such as the whole process for producing a tax return, in Practice Manager Plus you have the ability to create Jobs.
