The Tasks to Auto-Complete feature allows a Subject Matter Expert to assign one or more Tasks to be automatically completed when a particular Task is complete. Groups of Tasks can also be set up to auto-complete a single Task—visit: Multiple Tasks Auto-Complete a Task.

This feature works by selecting a Task (parent), then selecting Tasks that will be automatically completed when the parent Task is completed. For example, if a Task named Standard First Aid (parent) is assigned the auto-complete Tasks Confined Space Entry (child) and CPR (child), when Standard First Aid is completed, Confined Space Entry and CPR will be set as complete as well. The parent Task can be set to complete the Knowledge component, Capability Component, or both.

When Tasks are auto-completed, that is recorded in the Task History dialog under Signature in the Meaning field; no grade will be set for a Knowledge or Capability assessment. You can also see which Task(s) auto-completed the Task in the Auto-Completed By tab in the Task History dialog.
