If you are new to using the Task Coach program, this guide will explain the icon tools found in your category section. In this program, you can create categories to place your task in. You can also create sub-categories and edit these categories when you need too. The easiest way to manage your categories is by using the icon tools found in the category panel on the right side of your program. Read this guide to get a better understanding of what each icon is and how to use it. I will list the icons starting from the left and go right.
Category Icon Tools
Cut – This icon will allow you to cut the information from one category and create a new category using the same information.
Copy – You can create two categories that are the same by using this option. You can copy one category and create another category just like it.
Paste – When you create the new category, you will need to use the paste option to finalize that category.
New Category – To create a new category from scratch, use this icon. This icon will open the box so you can create your new category.
New Sub-Category – To create a new sub-category, you will need to click the category you want to place the sub under and click this icon. Then enter the information in the box for the new sub-category.
Edit Category – If you need to edit categories, this is the tool you would use. You would first need to click the category you want to edit and then click this icon. You can then edit the information in the box.
Delete Category – To delete a category, you will first need to click the category you want to delete and then click this icon. The category will then be removed from the category panel.
