Android: How do I change Projects for a task

Hi I have a Premium Todoist Account. I email my tasks to my Todoist Inbox (as is best practice). The next stage is for me to process my inbox, so I have to complete the task's attributes and allocate them to the correct project. However I can find no way of changing the project. Is their a facility please?

Hello Peter,

As you email tasks to your inbox, you can already attach some properties to them. If you include a label within the subject or body of the forwarded message, the task will have such label. You can also set dates using the <date tod at 2pm> syntax in the mail.

To change the project of the task, go to the "Edit" menu and then simply select a different project for it.

Unfortunately, we've received a report recently that this feature may not work correctly in the current version of our app and the task will stay in the Inbox. We're sorry for the inconvenience, we're already working on a fix and will publish an update soon.

Best regards,
