Problem with drag and drop capabilities

1. I think the desktop version should allow users to drag-and-drop task(s) to assign labels like we can currently drag-and-drop to assign a task to a project.

2. We can't currently drag from the 'today' view to assign to a project. This should be allowed.

3. We can't currently drag multiple selected tasks to a project, we can only drag one at at time.

Is this an oversight, should it work now, or is it on list for future enhancements?

Hi John,

Thanks for the suggestions. Feel free to add or vote on them in our Votebox. http://todoist.com/Vote/

Please note, you can SHIFT click tasks, and then click on Move To Project at the top.

Oh, I didn't see that menu at the top when multiple tasks are selected. That's good. You could also add "assign to label" to that menu.

I completely agree with the drag-to-assign-labels request. It would make it immensely faster to add items to a Waiting For list, especially if you could multi-select and batch process several items at once. Any updates on the original request since last year?

Thanks and keep up the great work.
