Add Task vs Add Section - whats the difference?

tasks
section

#1

I’m new to Asana and I can’t figure out the difference between Task and Section. Would anyone be able to show an example of the difference between these two?
Many thanks

Welcome to Asana :grinning:

The yellow highlighted part is a section, the other two lines are tasks.

Sections just break up sets of tasks.
You can’t complete them from the task list view.
You can also make a section very simply by adding a colon ‘:’ to the end of a task in any list. In this clipping you can see I just made ‘47334’ into a section by adding ':'

There’s a lot more info on sections here: https://asana.com/guide/help/projects/sections
