Adding Tasks Directly To Project Syntax?

Is there a way to add a task directly to a project when you are entering it in? I see how I can add labels by "@" and then the lable name, but is there also a way to do this with projects so that the entry goes directly to it's associated project? For example, I'd like

"Team meeting at 2pm @meetings" to go to the project "Work", with the label "meetings". I can get the label to be attached, but don't know how to get the event added to the project other than manually moving it after I've entered all the information in.

Hello Damion,

Unfortunately, that's not possible on iOS - you can select the project from the drop-down menu when adding it, though.

On the web, you can enter it directly to the project you're already in or TAB your way through to the project selection field and start typing its name.

Best regards,

Not for iOS, my question is for Android app. Running on nexus 4 with android 5.1.1.
Now that Android Material app is released, is there a way to add task directly to a project. This seems to be pretty basic functionality that has to be available in the app from the start. Also, related to the newly released material design app, is there a way to add task from the widget that only opens a small window instead of the full task entry window that it currently opens, which requires alot of scrolling and wastes space at the top of the screen. what i am looking for is that it opens a small window where in i can type like this - Call ABC tomorrow for discussing final drawings p1 @machinery #newfactory, and the task is added to label "machinery", due date as " tomorrow" and priority "1" and project "newfactory".

Hi Vivek,

Thanks for the feedback! Project shortcut is something we would really like to add in the future.

Also, we will take your suggestion regarding the quick add option from the widget into consideration for the future updates!
