Also, is there a way when clicking on the Edit in Windows to see the same choices in one place as is on the iPhone? If not, is this something that will be available in the future?

Hello Thom,

When you're adding or editing a task (within a project, not through the Quick-Add feature or on a date view), you'll see two small arrow icons on the right side of the task which can be used to indent it. You can also use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+RIghtArrow or Ctrl+LeftArrow to indent/unindent a task.

All task properties can be easily changed for a task. If you right-click on an existing task, you can choose its priority, set reminders and much more. While you're adding a task, you can type !p1, !p2 or !p3 to set its priority @in_progress to set an "in progress" label.status to it or type <remind ev day at 2pm> to set a reminder.


Best regards,
David

I don't see the two small arrow icons, nor does Ctrl+ work. I'm using Chrome.
Yes, I know about the right click on the task, but not all the options are available as on the iPhone - call in one place, like the Indent, and Labels.

Thom,

Regarding the options - we may not add all of them to the web-app. The mobile app has been optimized for the small screen and lack of keyboard and mouse input, but on the web it's much faster and easier to add a label or a priority by typing it in or indent a task.

Regarding indenting - this option is available when you're within a project, but not on the "today" or "7 days" views. Please enter a particular project, then click on "Add task" at the bottom of your task list and when you're adding or editing task in a project, you should see these arrows on the right side within the task input box.


Best regards,
David
