The tasks table records tasks that individuals must perform. Normally, tasks are performed by a service provider as a result of a meeting or contact with students. The tasks table serves as a tickler file to record future tasks that must be completed by an established date. A task can be performed for a student, and in this case a tasks is a child table of students. Many task child records may exist for a single student parent record. A task need not be associated with a student. In this case, the task is referred to as a generic task.

Pending tasks assigned to the user display on the SAM V2 dashboard under My Pending Tasks. This serves as a visual reminder of tasks that need to be performed by the user.
