How do you create a task on the job profile?
I was hoping to create a task on the job profile, the tab is there but I don't see an option to add a new task.

I’m not positive how you’d like to leverage tasks, so I’m going to give a little bit of information about a few different things you can do. If you have any additional questions, or if I’ve missed something you want more information about, please let me know!
If you want to assign a task to a candidate associated with a specific Job Profile, navigate to Tasks Tab of their Person Profile and user the Add Task button there.
Similarly, if you want to assign a task to many candidates associated with a specific Job Profile, navigate to the People Tab on the Job Profile, select the necessary candidates, and then select New Task from the More Actions button to assign a task to them.
If a task needs to be performed on the job itself (e.g. if you want someone in your organization to edit the description, or if someone needs to print out a copy of the job for a bulletin board, etc.), it would be appropriate to add a task to the Job Profile itself. Please note, however, that tasks associated with Job Profiles can't be assigned to any people associated with the Job Profile, if that's what you were hoping to achieve.
(If you do want to create tasks for Job Profiles, please contact your iCIMS POC to have the Add Tasks button turned on for Job Profiles in your Platform.)
As I mentioned before, feel free to let me know if I’ve missed something you’d like to know more about, or if you have any additional questions.
