Assign tasks directly from content
The majority of the work we do happens in between projects. We're constantly approving documents, editing mockups, or setting up meetings. Content tasks help you keep track of the activities that make up your day-to-day.
Content tasks can be added on blog posts, calendar events, files, forum topics, and wiki articles. You can assign as many tasks on a piece of content as is necessary, and they can even have subtasks. You can even mark tasks as private so only the assigner and assignee see them.
Why are content tasks important? When you have a weekly meeting, you can add all the action items from your discussion as tasks directly on the calendar event; next week you can follow up on what's completed. When you're working on a document, you can assign tasks right on the document to request changes or approvals. The person assigned the work has the added context of the document, and other people on your team will see there are outstanding tasks - which is helpful if you've accidentally sent out a draft version of a document before.
