I have several unreported tasks. i seem to remember doing a "network communication" in the past and it would report tasks.... i recently started using bonic again but all the tasks that have been completed have not been reported.

Tasks get reported automatically, usually after a maximum of 24 hours.

Why would you want to? Doing it manually and frequently can cause unnecessary load on the servers. You won't get credits faster doing it manually so I fail to see the interest in it.

But if you click on the Projects tab in BOINC, select a project, then click on the Update button, it will force communications with the project (including reporting any completed work and requesting new work if applicable).
