    1. Task: Label the task so that the portal user will know what action they need to complete.

    2. Contact Type:

      1. People = Speakers or Contacts

      2. Groups = Sponsors or Exhibitors

    3. Mark task as complete: The task can either be marked as completed in one of two ways:

      • When the user manually marks the task as complete (Clicking the button Mark as Complete will mark the task as complete)

    4. Description: By adding a description, you can provide additional information that the portal user may need to complete the task.
