Contextual Help - Task Priorities (Edit Project Information)

The Task Priorities tab displays all priorities configured for this project. Priorities are used to define the level of urgency of a task.

This tab has 3 parts: The title bar, the navigation tabs and the
list of task priorities.
  • The title bar tells you where you are in AceProject. At the end of the title bar you will find the link to add a task priority to the project, as well as the contextual help. 
  • The Navigation Tabs make it easier for you to reach specific project parameters such as task groups or task types. Click on the tabs to reach a specific configuration page.
  • The List of Task Priorities displays all priorities used in the project, with their description. 
    • The "Project Number" row shows the current project's number. Click it to display the basic project parameters.
    • The "Project Name" row shows the current project's name. Click it to display that project's task list.
  • You can sort the list by clicking on any column header: click once to sort in ascending order and twice to sort in descending order.  
    • A priority is used to define the level of urgency of a task. It can be low, medium, high, urgent, etc. 
    • Click on a priority's name to make changes to it or delete it. There must be no task associated to a priority in order to delete this priority.
      • If you want to have a name without letters or numbers, you can simply type a period (.) or n/a.
      • You must type a number in the "Order" field. Letters are not accepted.
    • You can choose to reset the order of your task priorities alphabetically. For example:

      Original:
      Low  1
      high  2
      Urgent 3

      Priorities set to alphabetical order:
      High 1
