    • Hover - the task hover text
    • Milestone - an element which stores value of 0 or 1 which defines whether the task is rendered as a milestone
    • Depends on - a database join element which enables the user to define which tasks must be completed before this task can be started.

    Processes(top)

    You can also group tasks in 'processes', for example a task may belong to a project, in which case you can set the 'process' to be the project element.
