Tasks (item)

Give yourself or others an informal reminder about preparing the item for release using the Tasks list. Whether you need to make sure of a design parameter, write a procedure, or call your supplier, you can enter the task and update it.

Tasks are requests, not requirements. Incomplete tasks do not prevent an item from being released. After release, the task is no longer relevant and is locked at its current status.
