Fold / Unfold Tasks
Updated this week

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:

  1. 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

  2. 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.
