Is there a shortcut key to move a task to a new Project?
Unfortunately, there's currently no keyboard shortcut for moving tasks to a different project. You can refer to this link for all available keyboard shortcuts that you can use: https://todoist.com/Help/KeyboardShortcuts.
Please note though that if you have one or more tasks selected, you should have the "Move to Project" option available at the top of the screen. This should allow you to quickly move tasks around. Alternatively, you can also drag and drop tasks to different projects. I know it's not the same as a keyboard shortcut but I hope those two options help.
I hope this feature is added in a near future.
It's not really a keyboard shortcut but you can actually hold shift and select tasks and then click on the "Move to history" option that shows up at the top.
+1, asked this on Twitter and then found this. Maybe just let us write #Project to move it to a new project when we save, similar to @.
To anyone following this, I just wrote a personal tool that looks for ##project in the task name (case-sensitive exact match) and moves it from the Inbox to that project. It checks every 5 minutes (or whenever the app is started fresh).
It's a command-line tool and only tested on my Mac, but if anyone would use it I'll try to publish it as-is eventually, and then if someone wants to they can make it fancier.
Technical details: It's a Meteor app, so if you're on Windows you'll have to run it in a VM. It uses settings.json for configuration.
+1 would love the hotkey. i put lots of stuff in my inbox and when I process it GTD style, having to click through so many times to change to the correct project slows me down a lot.
+1 Also really wish I could quickly file things from inbox to projects with keys alone. Even exposing the project field as something that can be tabbed in to after "date" would be a step up. Too much mousing and scrolling and typing involved as is.
Mimicking Gmail shortcuts would be a dream scenario. Imagine:
1. type [g] [i] and you go to the inbox
2. type [j] and [k] to go up and down the task list highlighting a single task at a time
3. type [enter] to edit a selected item, tab past the title and the date to the project field, type a few letters of the project to get an autocomplete suggestion. Done.
3. avoid tabbing through name and date at all by typing [m] to call up an autocomplete field for the project to move the task to.
Someday, maybe?. ;-D
+1 Please add! This would be a great feature. iOS and desktop app please! Thanks.
Hi team, do you plan to add this functionality in the near future? (i.e. by end of 2015)
We can't provide an ETA yet, but this feature is on our list. We may see it added in the near future. As we have any news, we will share!
Would love this as it would speed up adding tasks
