An app execution is called a **task**. Each task is associated with a set of input files and chosen settings for the tool(s) in the app. To begin a task, first select an app in your project (either a [publicly available app](http://docs.cancergenomicscloud.org/docs/apps-on-the-cgc) or one that you have created), then click the green **Run** button.
