A task is a personal or work-related errand you want to track through completion. A task can occur once or periodically (a recurring task). A recurring task can repeat at regular intervals or repeat based on the date you mark the task complete. For example, you might want to send a status report to your manager on the last Friday of every month, and get a haircut when one month has passed since your last haircut.
