Project Labeling



I would love to see a way to create a new project right away from the add-button

For example:

Add --> Text: Construct new garage @home !

The "!" stands here for a project-tag. With this tag a new project gets generated.

At the moment it is kind of annoying to handle new ideas (gtd-like).

Does anybody have a workaround for this?
Is something similar already in progress?

Thanks in advance

Thank you for your suggestion, we appreciate it. If you want to label new tasks, you can do so anytime simply by typing @labelname within the task name and you can also easily search for all tasks with this label.

As a workaround to your suggestion, you could create a project called "Ideas" and add all new unsorted tasks there and then move them to other projects.

It would be nice to be able to enter project names in the task entry field,by prefixing with '#' to be consistent with filters, this could then auto-complete in the same way as '@' prefix auto-completes for labels.
