The task component includes many ways to view and interact with matter tasks, including sorting, filtering, viewing, creating, and editing tasks. This component features headers that give you important information at a glance and allow you to organize the table. Completing tasks, editing tasks, adding notes and documents, and filtering tasks by field values are some of the ways the new task table helps you work smarter on matters. This component is also used on the All Tasks tab.

Optionally, you can add Task Type (from DMT) or Type (from Task) to the task table. This adds a new header to the table and allows you to filter tasks based on this information.
