Assign Priority from Add Task Dialog Box


Is is possible to assign a task a Priority from the Add Tax dialog box?

In the Add Task dialog box, we can attach mail or website, alternatively and/or additively add text, Assign a Project, Set the Date, what would also be useful (to me) is to set the Priority from the Add Task dialog box.

It could be a pull down (if priorities become editable or extensible in the future) or simply the four colored boxes (thank you for making the colors more distinct) between the Add Task button and the "Date" text box.

This functionality would save the step of adding a task, then moving to the Project, locating the task, and then assigning the priority.

Perhaps not a high priority request (sic), but one more little convenience in a product that I greatly appreciate.

Thank You,

Hello Brent,

this option is already available on Todoist. To add a priority to a task, simply type: !p1, !p2, !p3 or !p4 within the task name.

David -

Thank you, that works well.

However, think of all those happy children on Christmas morning, actually all the happy users of Todoist, when they could simply mouse click one more item while they are already in the dialog box instead of having to move their hands back to the keyboard just to type "1p2" and then return to the mouse for the next email...

Thanks for the good work you all are doing with Todoist!
