Edit – clicking will display the editor for the item (project, task, note, etc)
Delete – deletes an item. If there are linked items they will not be deleted.
Clone – clone project with all associated sub tasks and save as new project. New sub tasks will be automatically assigned to same contributor as in parent project. Auto generated backfilled dates will also be inherited with respect to new parent project. Overridden fields will need to be manually changed before distributing tasks. New project will be auto-named as XYZ-Clone.
Mark Completed – allow contributor to mark job as completed with a single click from the task list.
Subscribe to events – get an alert when this particular item is edited by another user.

Links can be added by clicking the entity type (in this case project) and selecting any other entity type which will allow user to search for the target item to link. When done the link will show on the list and the type of link will show on the right. Linking is a very powerful tool that can drastically reduce search times when needing to recall information about workflow entities such as projects. All linked entities will also show on the right panel of the quick viewer and any listed link is a shortcut that will automatically jump from the source item to the destination linked item.
