The Inspire - Project Task Chatter Feed Lightning Component can be added to the Salesforce Task Lightning record page to allow assigned users to see the Project Task Chatter Feed from within their assigned Salesforce Tasks. This feature makes it easier for project managers and assigned resources to post updates and share information specific to a task.
The Inspire - Project Task Chatter Feed Lightning component is different from the native Salesforce Task Chatter. This means that when you post an update, a link or share a file in the Project Task Chatter in the project, these will not display in the native Salesforce Task Chatter feed and vice versa. You will need to add the Inspire - Project Task Chatter Feed Lightning component to your Salesforce Task Lightning record page so that you can see the Project Task Chatter posts. For more information, please see Salesforce Task - Adding the Project Task Chatter Feed Lightning Component
