Add tasks to a section

Keep your projects organized by adding tasks to your sections.

Add a new task to a section

There are three ways in which you can add a new task to a section:

  1. Create the task anywhere in the project, then drag and drop the task under the section (make sure the section is expanded before you drag the task).
  2. Expand the section you wish to add the new task to, then click the Add task option.
  3. If you are already in the project that has the section you want to add the task to, type / followed by the section's name (for example, /Meetings). If you are not in the project with the section you want to add the task to, you can type # followed by the project's name, then / followed by the section's name (for example, #Work /Meetings).
  4. Click the task to open task view, then either use the web_project.svg projects icon or type /Section Name directly after the task title, to add the task to a section.

Add an existing task to a section

There are two ways in which you can add an existing task to a section:

  1. Drag and drop the task into the expanded section.
  2. Click the task to open task view, then either use the web_project.svg projects icon or type /Section Name directly after the task title, to add the task to a section.
It’s not possible to drag and drop tasks to collapsed sections. However, we will support this in a future update.

If the task isn't in the same project as the section:

  1. Click the task to open task view.
  2. Click the web_project.svg projects icon to select a new project and section.
  3. Alternatively, you can also assign a new project and section by editing the task name and typing # followed by the project's name, then / followed by the section's name (for example, #Work /Meetings).
Move several tasks to a section by using multi-select.
