Whether you’re planning a presentation, preparing for an event or creating a website, create a project so all the important details are saved in one central place.
Start by quick adding tasks to your project. Load up your new project with every relevant task you can think of. It’s a brainstorm -- no bad ideas. You can add a task directly to your project by clicking/tapping the Add task or + button in the project.
When quick adding a new task, you can immediately move it to a project by typing “#” directly into the task field and entering the name of the project.
Give your project a timeline by setting due dates
Some work needs to be done now, other work can wait. To make sure you get things done on time, set each task’s due date.
Set the due date by typing the date into the task name, like “Today”, “Next Thursday” or “March 12”.
Once your due dates are set, you can easily see which tasks are due next in your project:
Keep important tasks top of mind using task priorities
Some tasks are more important than others. Go through your project and set your most important tasks as priority 1. They’ll show up in red so you know what to work on first.
Organize your project using sections
If you want to break your project down into different parts, organize them into sections by simply entering a colon at the end of the task name.
You can then drag and drop tasks to rearrange them as sub-tasks underneath each section.
