Overview of Task Master

Overview of Task Master

SharePoint Task Master shows tasks and milestones hierarchically, with dependencies and related task information, in a task details grid and Gantt chart view. Display only the task information you choose, in the order and level of detail you need. Task data is stored in the Bamboo Project Task List or in a task list of your choice, anywhere in the SharePoint site collection.

To use SharePoint Task Master:

Step 1: Add the Web Part to a page and configure it.

  • Add the Bamboo Task Master Web Part to a page and open the tool pane to select a task list, set working hours and holidays, and define Gantt chart and grid view options.

Step 2: Add tasks.

  • To start adding tasks, click the New Item button and enter task information. Indicate whether the task is a Parent Task (i.e., Summary Task), has Predecessor Tasks that must be completed before this task can start, or has constraints like Start No Later Than or Must Start On a specific date.

Step 3: Manage tasks using the task grid and Gantt views.

  • In the Task Master Web Part, edit tasks, switch views (i.e., Day, Week, Month, Quarter or Year) or filter the tasks displayed by selecting a different task list view. Print the task details grid or Gantt chart, zoom the timescale in or out to view more or less task detail, show the critical path, and more.
