About Monitoring the Workload
Tasks are at the heart of tracking your production with Producer. They can can be automatically created when new scenes are added or they can be created manually. Tasks are the practical form of the processes that make up workflows.
Tasks have different possible statuses and can be assigned to different users.
Tasks are usually created automatically because workflows have a default setting to automatically create tasks. When you create an item, such as a scene or an asset, and you select a workflow using the auto-create setting, all the processes of this workflow will be converted into actual tasks for this item.
