Easily adding tasks from a date view


Todoist is great, but since switching from Wunderlist (http://www.wunderlist.com/) I'm missing a very useful time & click-saving feature: adding tasks from any view.

E.g. If I'm viewing "today, tomorrow", I can still have an Add Task/Add Mail button that creates a task with Today as the due date. It can default to the first project in the list and let me change it with a dropdown.

Currently the view I use to get things done doesn't let me offload new tasks for later, it forces me to get distracted, move to a different view and go back.

this feature is already available in Todoist. In order to add a task from any view, please click on the + icon in the top-right corner or use the CTRL+Q quick-add keyboard shortcut.

Best regards,
