+ Add Question

Handful of questions...

can a group of tasks be moved (dragged and dropped) into another task, where it automatically makes them subtasks of that task? Not working. Or best workaround?

is there a way to change the label of multiple tasks at a time?

my shift function doesn't seem to be working in selecting multiple, although control does... any known fixes on this?

when i am quick adding a task, how can i make a new project name along with that? right now, it seems to just force it must be a part of an existing project name.

Desire: i do not want to see tasks in my upcoming which are considered follow up tasks for a future date (aka tickler). eg i am going to make a follow up call in 2 days... i do not want to keep seeing it. In outlook, was able to keep this filtered view by using start dates.

Is there a view to save different filtered views?

In outlook, where should the emails go after they are added as a task? concern, that deleting them and they will no longer be available later. Should i move them to a folder, or is it okay just deleting them?

Can we do due dates and notes on the project level? right now, I am having to add a task putting in this information simply called "project details"

Hello Brad,

1. You can drag & drop a task anywhere, and while you hold it (grab it by the drag & drop handle), you can hit the 1, 2, 3 or 4 key to set its indent level.

2. That's not possible right now.

3. I can't reproduce this in Firefox or Chrome. Please note that both should work exactly the same, you can't select a range of tasks using Shift.

4. That's not possible, you can only select and existing project from the list.

5. If you right-click on a task and postpone it to a date in 2 days, you will not see it on your today list.

6. I'm not sure I understand what you mean, but if you click on the "Filters" tab, you can see the whole list of your saved filters. If you're asking if you can see the results of multiple filters - that's not possible.

7. If you delete them, then Outlook will not be able to find them when you click on the link in Todoist as these are local links pointing to the ID of the message. If it's not there, it won't open. If you don't mind deleting them, though, then you could consider using the option to send emails to Todoist and not just link to them. Right-click on a project and choose "Email tasks to this project" for more information about this feature.

8. That's not possible. We will consider adding notes to projects, not sure about due dates, though.
