Available for:

Do you ever find yourself doing some pretty boring and repetitive work when managing your tasks and sub-tasks? It’s a dirty job, but somebody has to do it, right? Or something for that matter, like this Task Helper extension!

The Task Helper extension has a collection of three automated task actions, all designed to speed up your work and save you from having to perform tedious manual actions over and over again. You can find these helpers in the task menu:

  • Turn a task into an uncompletable task.
