        • When you add tasks from quick bar with some due date and assign it to people, then that due date and assigned people will be saved. You can quickly add multiple tasks, which will be assigned to same users with same due date. You don’t need to enter same due date again and again. If you want to add a task with some other due date and assign it to different users, then click on Date picker and select some other due date for your tasks. Similarly, to assign tasks to different users click on Assign people icon, deselect the existing users and select new users from dropdown.

        There is one more way to quickly add tasks i.e. via Import from CSV files. For more details on how you can import tasks from CSV to ProofHub, Click here.
