What is Task Roll Up


Task Roll Up is a term without a constant meaning, used in a big number of different time/task and project management software products which employ this wording to express different operations that a user can apply to tasks managed within environment of these programs. The most common understandings of a task roll up procedure (aka task rollup) are the following (they can be found in various applications from different developers): 

  • It is an operation of collapsing a task which comprises a list of sub-tasks, for example when such a task is displayed on a Ghantt chart, so a complex task (represented as a long cascade of sub-tasks with their durations and dependencies) gets rolled up into a simpler linear view;
  • It is an operation of reducing (collapsing) a list of a task’s details after a user has recalled an expanded view of details for this task. In this case the whole abundance of a task’s details gets rolled up to the reduced list of the major ones only;
  • It is an operation which is applied to the recurring tasks to skip a turn of reoccurrence when you don’t complete this task in fact, but you still need this task to update its time settings like if you shifted it to the next turn (for example the next day if a daily recurrence pattern used);
