Profit Rhino has a plethora of tasks for you to use and customize. Even though we have a lot of tasks in the book it may not cover everything you are currently doing. You may have a side business such as roofing, landscaping, or garage doors. These are tasks that you will not find within Profit Rhino but that doesn't mean you can't use Profit Rhino for these other businesses. By now you have most likely learned how to create tasks and categories within the Profit Rhino web tool, but if you happen to have a price book built out for that other business already you may be able to save a lot of time getting those tasks in by using our task import template.  Once you fill this out using the help of this article please send the completed template to support@profitrhino.com and a CSA will help get the file imported in for you.
