To create a task:
- Click on the bottom-right corner of a list to create cards from a template set in the board.
2. Rename the card with a name that reflects the general idea of the task. If the card is a secondary initiative, use the syntax of:
[<Chapter code> <Primary initiative code>.<Secondary initiative code>.<Pivot code>] <Initiative name>

Don’t forget to update your card as soon as possible after accomplishing a progress, this helps clarity of information and update during scrum meetings.
