New tasks

Create a task

  1. Do one of the following:
    Method 1. Press  ⌘ Cmd +  N or   Space
    Method 2. Click on   New task.

    The button   New task is located in the Bottom toolbar. The Bottom toolbar is a panel with five buttons at the bottom of the Main panel. Each button in the Bottom Toolbar gives quick access to any of the actions: create a task, create a section, set a date, move the task to another project, delete.

  2. Type the name of the task and press  Enter

    If you do not name a task, it will be named “New Task”.

Project selection

When creating a new task, you should select a project or folder for it. The project or folder icon is immediately displayed in the task edit field.

  1. If you create a task in the project folder, the task remains in this project.

  2. If you create a task in the Today folder or via the widget — the task goes to the No Project folder.

  3. If you create a task in the Inbox folder, the task remains in the Inbox folder until you select a project and a due date for it.

To select a project for a new task, click on the project (folder) icon in the task edit field and select the project in the drop-down list.

Add an emoji to the task name

  1. Do one of the following:
    Method 1. Press  ⌘ Cmd + ^ + Space
    Method 2. In the system menu, select Edit > Emoji and characters.
  2. In the pop-up window, select an emoji or a symbol.
The task comes to mind unexpectedly, “Bang!” You waited for a while, did not record it, distracted — and here you are. It’s only the next day when you remember that it had to be done yesterday. Record all your ideas in the Inbox as soon as they come. In the evening, when you are not so busy, you can distribute them among the projects, set the dates and configure notifications
