Assign tasks outside of a shared project

At the moment we need to share the project first to allow the creation of tasks to a person.

I don't mind having some of the same projects as my team, but in many cases I just want to quickly create a task, assign it to someone, and allow them to choose where they categorize it.

I thought that's what the Inbox was going to be used for. When you are assigned a task outside of a shared project, it goes into your Inbox.

Anthony you have a vote from me on the features request page. Heck, just look at the use case in the promo video... How cumbersome to create and add a person to a "things to get when you are out list" when you just want to delegate buying a bottle of wine on the fly.

Wish I could vote this up a million times. I knew that shared tasks was coming, which is one of the reasons why I took the dive into premium and based from the previous request for this feature I didn't even imagine that they would implement it this way.

I shared this on the Todoist Facebook page. Anthony, any ideas on how to promote this idea for some more votes?

Thanks Ben!

I'm not sure how we can promote the idea other than sharing a link on social media, but I hope people start voting on it.

Yea, I shared on social media and sent it to someone specific I know who is a user. I also shared it on Todoist's Facebook page. Couldn't hurt for you to do the same. This feature is a must.

This feature is a must. Way too cumbersome to have to share an entire project out to just share one solitary task.
