Adding Tasks

At the top of the page is the Add Task bar. Enter the task name and either press Enter or click the + button to add your new task.

Your new task is added:

  • At the top of the list if no task was selected.
  • Below the selected task (and then becomes selected itself).

You can continue adding tasks by entering the task and pressing Enter repeatedly. Task names can be 1-500 characters long.

Multitask Adding

To add multiple tasks at once, click on the Add Multi button:

Multi-task Adding

Enter one task per line. You can easily paste tasks from another document. To include subtasks, use a TAB at the start of the line for deep nesting.

Tip: To add a note to your task, use a period (.) at the end of the task name and follow with the note, e.g., “Task name. Task note.”

Selecting Tasks

Task selection is useful when adding tasks as the newly created task is added right below the selected task. Selected tasks have a gray background.

To select a task, click anywhere on it. To de-select a task, click on it again.

Editing Task Name

To change the task name, click on it to enter “Edit Mode”:

Edit Task Name

Make any changes required and press:

  • Enter to save your changes and exit “Edit mode.”
  • ESC to exit “Edit Mode” without making any changes.

You can also click anywhere outside the textbox to save your changes and exit “Edit Mode.”

Task Menu

The task menu:

Deleting Tasks

To delete a task, click on the Delete button (Trashcan) on the task menu:

Sometimes a task can (or should) be broken into a number of subtasks. To add a subtask to a parent task:

  • Select the parent task by clicking on it.
  • Add the subtask by using the Add Task bar (the subtask will be added just below the parent task).
  • From the Task menu of the subtask, click on the “subtask” button:

To reverse this and make a subtask back to a task, use the “Unsubtask” button:

Note: The “subtask” and “unsubtask” buttons will be grayed out if they cannot be used at that level.

Setting Due Dates

To stay on track, you can assign due dates to your tasks. These due dates trigger notifications (via email, reminders, or the app) if your task remains incomplete by the specified due date or time.

For a more granular/custom due date, click on the due date text (e.g., “in 7 days”), and the Due Date dialog will open. Set a date and time and click OK to confirm:
