Simple and Advanced Task Wizard Modes

The main update for a new interface is a possibility to make a new task by an assistance of basic (simplified) or advanced (full-scale) task wizard.

Advanced Task Wizard Mode

The simple mode allows using only the basic settings and functions, making no distractions for a user by a lot of advanced functions. In the advanced mode, a user has full control over the process of task creation, which allows using all functions and operations for fine-tuning a particular task.
