Tasks are created from Cadences. As you create a Cadence, each step is being recorded in the the To-Do List. As you create Steps within a Cadence, you will see them appear in the list to the left. Once the Cadence is saved, these Steps automatically become Tasks, which will appear in the Overall To-Do List as well as the individual Customer's To-Do List.
Cadence steps that are setup to go out automatically will have a status of "Scheduled" meaning they are scheduled to go out on the scheduled day, during the next available delivery window. Cadence Steps that are not scheduled to be sent automatically will have a status of "Pending" and will not be sent until manually approved. Tasks that were unable to be sent will will have a "Failed" status, hovering your mouse over the "failed" icon will display the reason for the failure.
The various icons represents different types of tasks. Task types are:
