To work with tasks select the Tasks menu item under the student's picture / name on the left hand menu. The tasks can be opened from any page in GuidedPath and the contents will be continually autosaved.
Select the Create New Tasks button in the upper left hand corner to create a new event. Complete the details on the right hand side including any attachments. New assignments will stay in the Draft state until the Assign button in the bottom right is selected. Draft assignments have a yellow tag on the left hand summary view and are NOT placed on the students calendar.
Once the Create button is selected, a new popup is used to select who should get emails about the scheduled event. Note that this list of users will also get any updates to the task. Other options to Delete or Cancel an appointment rather than to Create it can be found by selecting the down arrow on the right side of the Create button. Deleted and Canceled tasks are not shown on the calendar. Scheduled events have a green tag on the left hand summary view and will be seen on the student's calendar.
The color coded tags can be toggled on and off by clicking on the headers under the New Assignment button. This allows a view of all or only tasks in a particular state. In addition, completed tasks can be included or excluded using the checkbox with the label Show Completed in this same area.
