You can use the new and enhanced Timeline layout to create and manage tasks. The Timeline layout is divided into a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) on the left and a task timeline on the right. Both the WBS and the task timeline show you all the sub-level tasks associated with the selected project/investment item.
