The environment implements the IVsTaskList interface to create a container for tasks. To put tasks into the task list, implement IVsTaskProvider, that enumerates a list of task items, each of which is an IVsTaskItem. The IVsTaskItem interface contains methods for modifying the behavior of tasks. The IVsTaskItem2 interface provides methods for managing custom columns.

See illustrations of the implementation of this interface in the Figures Language Service sample.
