I. Function overview
Tasks displays tasks that task owners are required to complete. When you @mention task owners on the task list of a document and grant them permission to edit, they can follow up with those tasks on their Tasks panel. This keeps important tasks from various documents organized and prevents tasks owners from forgetting.
Click Tasks on the upper-right corner of a document or Docs homepage to open the Tasks panel.
The Tasks panel will display the specific content of the task, and the task document of which it belonged. By clicking the task document, you will be directed straight to the designated task.
Once the task is completed, check the box before To-be-completed, and the task will be moved to the Completed list.
