Convert a task to Project


I mind dump into the Inbox using the add task shortcut. many times it is to create a project. Is there an easy way to convert a task into project?

Hi Chris,

Unfortunately, there is no way to convert a task into a Project. You can multi select tasks (Ctrl+RightClick) to select tasks, and you can choose "Move to Project" at the top to move them to a new project.

That is assuming you wanted to create a new project with tasks from a bunch of tasks you already had within the Inbox. But, task directly turned into a project, this is not possible.

Feel free to add this to our votebox :) http://todoist.com/Vote/

Wow. Thanks for the lightening fast response.

I will look at throwing it in the votebox!

It is great idea. It's a great idea. It would be even better if it combine with the option to move the task / project to another project.

The link to the vote page does not work! I would vote for this feature as well - urgently.

It would be great to be able to convert a task to a project while processing the inbox :)

I also would love this feature. I just discovered Todoist and think it is quite an App. I think this feature would increase its usefulness tremendously.
