In Task UI, the term task can refer to two distinct concepts, as follows:
- Task is a logical unit of work performed by an end user to complete a business operation. This logical unit of work might be completed by multiple mechanisms, one of which is Task UI.
- Task is a configuration built using the Task UI framework. In this usage, a task is a specific implementation, rather than a logical concept.
From the perspective of the end user, a task is the view representation of a logical unit of work to be performed. The task is presented in the application as a line that can be clicked in the Task pane and the corresponding view (or series of views) where the user performs this unit of work.
