Hi Scott,

Unfortunately, there's currently no keyboard shortcut for moving tasks to a different project. You can refer to this link for all available keyboard shortcuts that you can use: https://todoist.com/Help/KeyboardShortcuts.

Please note though that if you have one or more tasks selected, you should have the "Move to Project" option available at the top of the screen. This should allow you to quickly move tasks around. Alternatively, you can also drag and drop tasks to different projects. I know it's not the same as a keyboard shortcut but I hope those two options help.

Regards,

Clyde

+1.

I hope this feature is added in a near future.

Hi Hugh,

It's not really a keyboard shortcut but you can actually hold shift and select tasks and then click on the "Move to history" option that shows up at the top.


Regards,
Clyde

+1, asked this on Twitter and then found this. Maybe just let us write #Project to move it to a new project when we save, similar to @.

To anyone following this, I just wrote a personal tool that looks for ##project in the task name (case-sensitive exact match) and moves it from the Inbox to that project. It checks every 5 minutes (or whenever the app is started fresh).

It's a command-line tool and only tested on my Mac, but if anyone would use it I'll try to publish it as-is eventually, and then if someone wants to they can make it fancier.

Technical details: It's a Meteor app, so if you're on Windows you'll have to run it in a VM. It uses settings.json for configuration.
