Indent a Task
Indentation lets you break big, complex tasks into more manageable sub-tasks. Follow the steps below to indent tasks and create high-level outlines in Taskade:
Press ⌨️ Tab on your keyboard to indent a task/create a sub-task
Sub-tasks are the "children" of parent tasks
Each sub-task can have its own sub-tasks, and so on
Press ⌨️ Shift + Tab to outdent a task/sub-task
Fold / Unfold
This is where the outlining magic begins. Unlike a word processor, which only knows about pages and paragraphs, Taskade is an outliner. This means it can understand the relationships between tasks and nested sub-tasks.
Nesting tasks and notes creates a structured hierarchy that will help you:
Organize complex information and ideas.
Think critically and analyze information.
Understand relationships between different parts of a topic or project.
Facilitates effective communication and collaboration with your team.
Once you've created a high-level list of tasks or notes, you can hide or show lower-level elements as needed — is called Folding and Unfolding. Here's how it works.
Fold (Collapse) Tasks
Click the arrow to the left of your task to fold the list of sub-task nested under the parent task. You can also use the ⌨️ ⌘/CTRL + ⬆ keyboard shortcut.
Unfold (Expand) Tasks
Click the arrow to the left of your task again to unfold the list of sub-task nested under the parent task. You can also use the ⌨️ ⌘/CTRL + ⬇ keyboard shortcut.
