Tasks in the main navigation
Tasks section is the place where you can find the list of all the tasks assigned to you or you can create filters to get a list of overdue, closed or your co-workers tasks.
This is also where you can quickly create new task without switching to Projects.
Go to Tasks in the main navigation. You’ll notice there’s a “+” button that opens a form for adding a new task.
Type in a project name you’re adding tasks to…
… and the rest is the same just as it is when you add tasks in the Project section.
Add tasks directly to Task lists
Hover over a project name and you’ll see a small “+” buttons appear. You can add new tasks to a project or a task list directly. This is even faster because you’ll skip selecting a project from the dropdown menu.
You can also create and assign tasks to people quickly without going into a task. All you have to do is @mention somebody while putting in the name of the task.
Do you have a widget with open tasks on your Dashboard? Look for a “+” button next to a project name and add tasks there as well.
Global calendar view
There is a calendar view in the Tasks section. Switch from the list view to calendar view...
… and see all of your tasks for a particular month.
You can also see your coworker’s calendar. Pop open the Filters drawer on the left. Create a new filter if you don’t have one already and your coworker’s tasks will be shown in calendar.
And one other thing - you can quickly add new tasks using the calendar view as well. Hover over a date and look for a “+” button.
