It's important to know how to navigate this section to find the task you're looking for.
The default task view is divided by sections. Each section will tackle a different aspect of search engine optimization, ranging from technical, on-site SEO to social media, to local SEO, and includes a brief summary of why those particular tasks help your online marketing efforts. Especially for those with little to no SEO experience, the Standard task view provides an easily understandable entry point to optimizing your site.
Clicking any of the sections will pull up the related tasks (in this example, I've clicked Website 101: Set-Up For Success). You can then sort your tasks by status (open, in review, verified, completed, on hold, or not applicable).
If you already know what task you're looking for, it's probably easier to use the List task view by clicking List View in the upper right corner.
The List task view displays all tasks in a spreadsheet, allowing you to more easily sort by status, completed date, and more. This provides much more flexibility and allows you to see task status for all tasks rather than segmenting it by section.
