The Job - Tasks tab lists any Tasks that have been created and filed under the Job. These are any tasks that have been created for any documents under that job, or any stand-alone tasks that have been created and filed under that job.

This initially displays Incomplete Tasks and the view can be changed, for example, to All Tasks.
