As tasks are integral to the success of all projects, you're able to create them in multiple places within your Ruum account.
When creating and editing a task in Ruum, you have a number of useful fields and options available to you.
Subtasks enable you to break down the work involved in completing one larger task into smaller, complementary pieces of work or actions.
Assigning a task or subtask to team members gives them ownership of their work and allows them to track their progress.
Kanban boards are a visual project management tool, helping you to manage the flow of your tasks through a project.
You can turn a task into a milestone, or a milestone back into a task, at any time using the task management options.
Existing Tasks, Subtasks, and Milestones can be updated at any time by admins and editors. This includes edits, status updates, moving sections, and dates.
Milestones allow you to highlight significant stages or events in your project. They can be created directly from your canvas or by converting an existing task.
Deleting an existing task, subtask, or milestone will remove it and its related tasks for all ruum or group participants.
Creating a blank Ruum gives you access to an empty canvas, task list, and timeline. From here you can choose how your Ruum looks and feels.

Available to Professional and Enterprise users, groups allow you to organize your related Ruums in a digital folder within your lobby.

You can leave an individual Ruum or Group at any time, removing your access to that content. However there are important implications to note when doing this.
Successful teams need good communication tools, which is why you'll find comment and chat features embedded within each Ruum.

A Ruum is a collaborative space for you and your team to manage your work or project. Ruums can then be grouped together, helping you organize related content.
Each ruum comes with a canvas, an open space for content to be collaboratively created, edited, and displayed. Canvas changes are automatically saved, too.
