setting priority

LL

I must not be seeing something.

It seems like the only way to access the dialogue for setting the priority for a task is after I save the task... I can't seem to be able to while I am in the process of adding it.

??

Thanks!

Hello Laurie,

the right-click menu is indeed only accessible after saving the task. However, it is possible to set a priority while typing the task name. To do so, simply include !p1, !p2 or !p3 within the text and the appropriate priority will be set for this task right away.


Best regards,
David

David,

I've been looking for that tip for months. Perhaps it should be added to the Keyboard shortcuts page.

Regardless, thanks for the tip and the functionality. Todoist just got that much better.

Alan,

You're welcome :-) This is documented on the "text formatting" page: https://todoist.com/Help/TextFormatting we'll consider changing its category as we improve the help pages soon.
