What is the difference between a Task and an Event?

Within each matter, you will find separate sections for both Tasks and Events. To properly utilize all of the features, it’s important that you understand the differences between the two.

Simply explained, an Event is a one-time event. This may be an initial consultation with a prospective client or a court date. An Event is placed on your Calendar with an option to invite others and set reminders leading up to the date and time of the occurrence.



A Task, on the other hand, is an activity that must be performed by a given date, think of it as an item on your to-do list. A Task may include drafting a pretrial motion or completing discovery before trial. In contrast to an Event, you don’t invite others to attend a Task, instead, you can assign it to be completed by another member of your team, and receive notifications when a Task is completed or past due, allowing you to closely monitor work-flow.



Tasks will NOT create Calendar Events.
