    1. Enable Start Date for Salesforce tasks.  Inspire Project Tasks contain both a Start and Finish Date.  Since Inspire Tasks map to Salesforce Task, this feature adds a Start Date to your Salesforce Tasks.  You have the option of using the default Start Date field that is included with Inspire Planner, or map it to your own Start Date field if you are already using one.
    2. Enable Contact task assignment notification.  Enabling this feature will send a notification email to your external Contacts when you assign them new Project Task.  This feature works in conjunction with the Send task notification option under Settings for each project.  Notification emails will only be sent if both settings are set to Enabled.
    3. Enable time tracker.  This will enable the time tracking functionality. 
    4. If enabled, you also have the option of associating the Time Tracker to other objects in Salesforce.  For example, add objects like Account or Case will allow users to log time against these records, in addition to their Project Tasks.
