"Important" notice on Challenge Task

I'm working on Python for beginners. I've seen the same, "Important" notice to the left of the "check work" button on all Challenge Tasks. What does this mean? Previously I've simply completed the task, clicked "check work", and moved on. Should I be following along in my workspace aka including these tasks in my workspace for practice as well?

current_count = 14
planned = 5
upcoming_releases = 2

Oh no. All that the message: "Important: The code you write in each task should be added to the code written in the previous task." means is that if the coding challenge is broken down into three parts, when you do the third part, the second part should still work. <br>For example, if part 1 asks me to create a function named "my_func", and part 2 asks me to create a new function named "other_function", I should still have the code for "my_func" in the answer for part 2 even though it's not doing anything in part 2. Hope that helps!
