If you’ve added a task in Manage > Tasks but it’s not an option when you go to your timesheet, make sure that you’ve assigned it to the project you’re tracking time to.

To add a task to a project:

  1. Go to Projects and click the Actions menu to the right of the project you’d like to edit.
  2. Select Edit to go to the Project Edit form.
  3. Under Tasks, use the Add a task… field to select the task and add it to your project.
  4. Click the Update Project button to save your changes. You’ll now see the new task as an option when tracking time to this project.

If you want to add a new task to all current projects, you must do this when you create the task. To create a new task and add it to all current projects:

  1. Go to Manage > Tasks and click the + New Task button.
  2. Enter information for the new task. If you’d also like it to be automatically added to projects created in the future, check the Common Task box.
  3. Click Save Task and Add to All Current Projects.

You can also set an already existing task to be a common task, which will automatically add it to any projects created in the future. To make a task common:

  1. Go to Manage > Tasks and click the Edit button next to the task.
  2. Check the Common Task box.
  3. Click Update Task.
