Hi @Ian, Welcome to the Community!

“Task” is a pre-installed Type, and is in “My Types” by default. It’s not possible to uninstall this Type either.

Sync indicates an Objects status with our back-up node. The reason it appears to be “stuck on preparing”, is because you’re looking at a preview of that Type, not an actual instance of it. If you create or make changes to an Object, you will see the Sync status change.

If you want to create a new “Task” (or any other Type), you can also do it from the “+” button on the Home-screen:

Thanks Angelo

Today I had a similar bug, the only difference is when I edited the “Task” type default template, it stucks on “Preparing…”
