Task creation takes sometime so you will need to revisit the Team Tasks page to see all created tasks.

Every time new tasks are created, collaborators that can manage the created tasks will be notified via email. The email will include a sum for the created tasks and a button leading to the Team Tasks page with the newly created tasks filtered.

Appendix

Below you will find a detailed description on how to create tasks. There is a detailed explanation for every step of the wizard.

Content selection to create tasks for

In this step you will see a list of all the projects you can manage. Selecting a project you will see all the available target languages of that project. From this interface you can check which languages you want to create tasks for.

Unavailable languages are disabled and have a warning icon displayed. Hovering that warning icon with your mouse you will see the reason that the specific language is disabled.

Translation task settings

In this step you can setup the size and due date for the tasks that will be created.

To set the size of the task you add an approximate word count per task. Because the content in Transifex is stored in strings, that can contain many words, any created tasks will try to match as close as possible this word count setting.

To set the due date for each task you can add hours to delivery. The hours value you set is relevant to the current date. After adding a value there is a help text converting the hours you added to your local time.
