Quick task add option?


Is there a setting or widget that would allow me to quickly add a task with a preset project and/or label attached?

For instance, I have a label called @Errands that I use to mark things I need to pick up at the store, or from someplace when I'm running errands. Almost all of these I store under the same Project name.

I add basic items under the @Errands label several times a day. It would be extremely handy to have an option or widget to bring up a "quick" new task box with the Project and Labels fields already pre-populated based on my preferences. So all I would need to do is type in the Task and hit OK. (This would be in addition to still having the "+" add task option to add all other types of Tasks.)

Or, is there any other way to accomplish this?

Hello Chuck,

Unfortunately, that's not possible right now, but we may consider adding such option in future updates and you're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote_Android/showProposal/29/

For now, as a workaround, you could set the view in our full widget to a certain project. Each time you click on the + icon within the widget, the task input field will have the property of this view auto-completed. It won't work for labels, though.

Best regards,
