Quickly assign a project

L

Is there a way to assign a project to a task the same way we assign a label?

For eg.

Buy milk @shopping #personal

Thank you

Hi,

No, but there is no need. When you are adding a task, a project is already selected, and you change choose which it is right from the add menu.

Regards,
Brendon.

I know that, but for people that have a lot of projects ... having to scroll down trough all of them is time consuming.

i think that if you have the option for labels ... there should be the same option for projects!

I do not understand how can the staff say there is no need when it can save at least 5 taps... sometimes I wonder if the programmers use the app at all

Hello Luis,

We use the app every day :-) To select a project, you can use:
- Ctrl+Q
- 2x TAB
- start typing the name.

In case of direct name input, you'd exchange the first TAB to a space and the second one for typing the # which makes our current solution use the exact same amount of clicks that you would use to type space + #, but replace them with a double click on TAB. Feel free to try it out.

Alternatively, if you just want to enter a project with your keyboard and not use Quick Add, then click on / and then type #projectname.


Best regards,
David

Luis,

I'm sorry, I missed that. Indeed, on Android it's different, we'll look into improving this process in the future.


Best regards,
David
