Inbox and scheduled items

Really this is all platforms. I'm using NirvanaHQ and I love it, but its no longer supported so I'm reluctantly moving to todoist. When I create a new task, in the inbox, and schedule it, why does it remain in the Inbox? In Nirvana, and other GTD software, those tasks that have no project but are scheduled, are moved to the schedule, and out of the inbox. With todoist, I now have to create a task and add that item to it in *addition* to adding a calendar date.

Anybody else feel this is odd behavior?

Hi Stephen,

The Inbox is a project, and tasks always need to be in a project. The idea behind the Inbox is a default place, a quick add place when you don't know where that task should go yet. Once you know, you can move it to another project.

The only relation the date has is with the Today and 7 days view.
