On the right side of the Home menu and on the Create and there is a scroll on the list that says "Task".
What does it mean and what does it use for ?
I think they are mainly used for either MOOC courses, GeoNet "Projects", or GeoNet Groups to assign different work/assignments.
GeoNet is based on Jive Collaboration software. Although there are differences in implementation over the vanilla Jive deployment, you can typically get a sense of something on GeoNet by looking at the Jive documentation: Using Jive Projects and Tasks, Creating Tasks (Jive 7).
I ignore tasks
All right thanks everyone so I better ignore it.
