Dependent vs. Independent activities
Unlike tasks, activities are by default independent on a project and can be accessed without a project or a client. They can also be made dependent in the settings.
To make the activities dependent, you can do so in the Time Tracking settings. The dependent activities are called project related activities. Find out more about project related activities in this article.
What to use activities for
Activities are suitable for general activities that can take place within any project. An activity should be a repetetive task or not usually end witihin a short period
Good use of activities
Administration, Meeting, Programming, Making a call, Customer support, etc. Notice, these are general and repetitive.
Bad use of activities
Competition research, Designing new icons, Document analysis. Notice, these are rather a task format - they are not repetitive and need to be finished within a given period of time.
