Easily input sub-task/next action


It would be very helpful if there was a keyboard shortcut that would save a task and add a sub-task by indenting the next task at the same time . Currently, hitting <Enter> will save and allow you to add a new task at the same level, but perhaps <Shift> + <Enter>, this way my next sub-task is created and automatically indented, instead of having to create it first <Enter>, then move it <CTRL + arrow>.

I suppose would also be useful to do the other way, to save and move out of the sub-task to the next task.

Hello Toni,

thank you for your suggestion, we appreciate it and will consider adding such option in future development. You're welcome to add a request to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/

For now, please note that once you use the Ctrl+RightArrow shortcut while adding a task, the next input box will stay at the same indent level allowing you to add multiple sub-tasks without having to change the indent level every time.

Also, you can easily indent tasks from the "Reorder" mode. To do so, click on the "Reorder" link, then press and hold the left mouse button on the task you'd like to indent and use the 1, 2, 3 or 4 number keys to choose the indent level. If a task contains sub-tasks you can push the indent level of the whole structure by changing the level of the parent task.

Best regards,
