On the Task List page, you have the option to add two types of tasks.

Add Tasks: This allows you to create a regular task with fields for Title, Category, Status (Important Marker), Due Date, Visibility control, Description, and the ability to upload Attachments.

Add Essay: This enables you to create a special Essay-Task that includes all the features of a normal task, but it also comes with the additional capability of version control. With version control, each document uploaded to the Essay-Task is assigned a label that automatically increments with every new upload. You can access past versions through the Show more button.


Labels will help you to track the different versions of the Essay-Task you have uploaded (i.e. v2 means version 2).

On the Task List page, an Essay task appears with the option to modify the label's title. Simply click on the label, type in your desired title, and to save it, click on the 'tick' icon. This is how an Essay task is represented in the Task List.
