Indent & Outdent Tasks
Tasks are usually grouped into larger phases. Use the Indent button to subordinate a task, thereby making the dominant item into a phase with subordinate tasks. To indent a task means to turn a task to a sub task of the above task. To outdent a task means to turn a sub task to a summary task.
