Is it possible to move a task to another project?

M

This task program is new for me, but a really simple and straight forward program which I like. I had a task under a project. then later I created a subproject and now I want to move that task to the subproject. Is it possible to move a task to another project?
Thanks in advance.

Hello Mikey,

in order to move a single task to another project, hover over it and a small gear icon will appear at the right side of it. Click on the gear and choose "Move to another project".

In order to move multiple tasks, press and hold the Ctrl button and while holding it, start selecting the tasks you'd like to move with the left mouse button. Once you start selecting tasks, a blue menu bar will appear at the top of the screen with "Move to project" being one of the available options.


Best regards,
David

I guess this method doesn't work anymore.

Hi Christina,


This "Move to another project" feature is still there. Below is screenshot how you can get it to work for you.

Hope it helps!

Yes. One-by-one. But what about the feature that allows you to select multiple tasks at once?

Select multiple tasks and move them to another project?

Does whether or not a task is "completed" affect it's ability to move?

Hi Christina,

Would you please try holding down the "shift" button and try to select multiple items see if that works?

Hi Christina,

To your second question. A completed item cannot be moved to another project.
