How to Manage Task Types

Task Types determine the category of the tasks (e.g. mechanical, electrical, operational, etc.) in Fewzion. This helps planners and schedulers to group Standard Tasks by their types on the Planning Board. A Task Type has a ShortCode and a Colour. The Colour appears on the tasks displayed on the Planning Board.

Task Types are linked to Departments and they are an important part of the Week 3, 4 and 5 task planning.
