Form 2 - create a task

About this form

Here, you name your task and describe it. The task is what needs to be done for the option to work. You can create one or more tasks for an option.

Handy hint! You can create all your tasks first and then go back and create activity costings.

Important! You need to create a task before you can create activity costings.

What to include

All fields on this form must be filled in.

Task name

This is a short description of the task - the title of the task. Make it as clear and descriptive as possible, but keep it short (no more than 8 words).

This helps you tell the difference between one task and another.

Task description

This is the long description of the task. It must cover more info than the short description.

Handy hint! You can cut and paste the info from another document, for example, a Microsoft Word document.

Important! When pasting text into the Business Cost Calculator, you will lose any formatting, such as bold or bullet points.

What next?

When you've filled in the form, click the Add this task button. You'll see the task appear in the list.

Click the Cancel button to exit the form. This will not save anything you've entered.

Any problems?

Error messages
You might see an error message if you don't fill in a field.

You can't add the task until you follow the message that appears.
