Right click a task to add a sub task
In the web app, when I right-click on a task, can we please have a new option to "Add sub task" (add an indented task underneath the task I right-clicked on). Clicking this new option would open up the "Add Task" box under the current task, already indented.
It would be nice if this worked even if I had searched for a label (for example I enter @HOME into the search bar) and viewing all the tasks that had that label, as well as if I was looking at all the tasks in one project.
Currently I have to do these steps to add a sub task:
1) Click onto the project (if I had done a label search)
2) Go to the bottom and click Add Task.
3) Add the task.
4) Indent it.
5) Drag it up under the task I want it as a sub-task.
It would be nice to save a couple of steps :)
In the Google Chrome extension, more options when right-clicking a task should be "Add email as sub task" and "Add website as sub task".
Thanks for all the hard work guys, I love Todoist and look forward to it improving!
Thank you for your suggestion, we appreciate it and we may consider adding such option in the future.
For now, the quickest way to create a sub-task under a task is to right click on th existing task, choose "Add task below" and once the input box opens, use Ctrl+RightArrow to indent it - that's 2 steps (or 3 considering hitting Enter to save it as the final step).
Note - once you add a sub-task like this, the next input field will already open on the same indent level as the task you've just added so you can add multiple sub-tasks right away.
Hey, I've included what you are requesting more or less in a long list of essential requests for both ios and web services.
Perhaps u will want to put your vote as well, for the benefit of us all?
@David, I'm a little confused - this option does not appear on the menu when I right-click on a task...
If you hover over an existing task that has already been added and saved, you will see Todoist's context menu with the following options:
- Add task above
- Add task below
- Do it today
- Edit task
- Delete task
- Move to history
- Move to another project
If this is not what you see, please send a screenshot to email@example.com and include the following information:
- What browser are you using?
- Can you reproduce this issue in a different browser?
These are the options I see with both FF 23.0 and Chrome Version 28.0.1500.95 m:
Do it Today
Move to history
Move to another project
Is it a premium feature? I'm still evaluating which one to use instead of Astrid.
This is not a Premium feature and this is what you should see across all platforms when right-clicking on a task: https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/3a1cbb8d0534817fb5e251466d3a0d86/as/td_reminders.png
Please note that this is available while you're within a project. You can't add a task below or above if you're on the 7 days view or other search results page because tasks in these views are not shown in their true hierarchy.
Thanks - that's the reason - I'm not viewing from within a list. Possibly why the OP didn't see it either.
