Add tasks

Once the tasklist has been created you can proceed with adding tasks in three different ways:

  1. The quick add method
    Type the name of the task in the taskbar, pick the due date, attach files, add labels and assign people. This lets you add tasks in a quick succession as values you’ve entered will be stored for the next task.
  2. Detailed method
    • Click on the Add button at the top-left and select Task.
    • Add the following details in the new window:
      • Enter the Title and Description of the task. 
      • Select a Start date and Due date.
      • Add Assignees to the task.
      • Add Labels.
      • Enter the Estimated time.
      • Attach files

    • Click Add
  3. Import task in bulk
    You can also Import tasks in bulk in just one go.

Task IDs

Whenever a task or subtask is created, an automatic task ID is generated with it. It helps you to track task with the serial numbers. Also, it is easier to refer and share the task with serial numbers. Here’s how it looks like:


  1. Serial numbers are generated automatically.
  2. The serial number of a deleted task is counted as well.
  3. Subtasks have their independent serial numbers.


If someone has View and Add access permission for the tasks, only then one can add task lists/tasks in the projects
