Setting Item Types
In TaskMerlin the simplest type of item is a Task. However TaskMerlin
can store much more than just tasks. You can store information, dates, phone
numbers, pictures - practically anything you like. To help you categorize
things better we've introduced lots of different item types for you to
If you select the down arrow button on the Create a new item
toolbar button, a drop down box will appear
(you can also get the same menu by right clicking in the Item Grid). All the
different item types can be selected through this menu.
There's not a
lot of difference between the item types except the picture and the name, but choosing
different item types will help you find and sort through things later.
While we've included quite a number of item types for you to choose
from, you might find that there's one missing that you'd really like to
have. If so, let us know -
chances are we'll include it in the next update. Also, if you'd like to
categorize the task types differently, or create your own, that's easy to do.
Simply go to the Manage menu and choose
Types | Item Types. You can customize them however you like.
