Are you asking "Is it possible to start a task on the CPU then move it to the GPU", if so the answer is "NO" - the way the two processors store their internal data is not compatible.
If you are asking "Can I re-assign tasks from the CPU to the GPU" then the answer is "Yes, but it is not wise, and can result in all sorts of other problems that you don't want".

If you only want to do future data on your GPU then you can simply set your calculation options here https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/prefs.php?subset=project
Un-tick "use CPU", while leaving the correct "use xxxGPU" ticked.
Then save the change in options. It will take some time to work its way through to your computer, and then complete tasks that are set to run on the CPU.
