Task Inline Editing Enhancement
Today, we have made an enhancement in task inline editing. In 4.0, task edit is moved in a single screen in a pop-up. We designed this in-order to make the task edit across the product to be the same. Let it be in Feeds, Tasks & My Tasks tab, Calendar & My Calendar tab, a click on the task title will open the popup and user can edit the values. Customers pointed us the inline editing was very useful to them & how much they miss that in 4.0. Based on the feedback, we have rolled out this enhancement.
With this enhancement the users can edit the values of Owner, Start Date, End Date, Duration, % complete etc within the list view.
We have provided the inline editing option in Classic View of Tasks tab. We are happy to announce that the inline editing is also provided in "My Tasks" classic view, which was not there in 3.0 version.

Inline editing in "Tasks - Classic View"
A BIG thanks to Adrian for taking time to explain the difficulty in details. We haven't thought about multi-edit for plotting a workflow ( point 2 in the post ) when we decided to remove this. We thought consolidating all updates on a detail page will make it more easy for users. But Adrian explanation helped us understand the exact problem users face without that. This post helped us understand the usage & implement the feature back in 4.0.
Once again thanks Adrian for helping us with detailed explanation.
As Mani said, our thought is to make the task editing similar across the product i.e in a detail popup page. We understood the heavy usage of the inline editing option and rolled out the enhancement.

Task and Project numbering
Zoho Projects now generates a unique number for each project, task, and issue added. The auto-generated ID is a combination of a prefix and a number which is assigned by Zoho Projects.

Four types of task dependencies
"Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs." - Henry Ford Projects, small or large, are driven by simple work units called tasks. Monitoring standalone tasks might look simple but as the workflow becomes elaborate, tasks may start relying on one another. In project management, this relationship between tasks is termed as "Task Dependencies". Dependency between tasks arise

Blueprint in Zoho Projects
Often, we stumble upon tasks having the same status workflow. Repetitive task processes are tedious to handle, right? That’s why we have introduced Blueprint for task automation. Blueprint is a tool to organize tasks and automate them based on the workflow you design and the criteria you define. How do I associate tasks with a blueprint? You can set the criteria while creating the blueprint such that when you publish a blueprint, the tasks that satisfy the criteria will be associated with the
