๐Ÿค” What Is Project Formatting?

Every Project in Taskade is a collection of tasks. A task is just like a bullet point in the traditional sense. You can use the power of outlining to break down tasks into sub-tasks and style them according to your liking. Here's how to do that on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ Format Tasks and Sub-Tasks

Taskade lets you turn your tasks into a checklist, heading, ordered list, or paragraph. There are also several bullet point styles you can choose from. To format a task/sub-task:

  1. Select the task/sub-task you want to format

  2. Click the drag icon (โ‹ฎโ‹ฎ) to the left of your task

  3. Click the first item on the list and select a format from the drop-down list

    • You can also Type "/" followed by the desired format, .e.g


๐Ÿคš Drag to Reorder

You can reorder blocks of tasks/sub-tasks using the drag icon (โ‹ฎโ‹ฎ) to the left of a top-level task. Use the drag & drop feature to quickly reorganize your lists.


๐ŸŸข Highlight and Style

  1. Select a task or text, click the three dots (ยทยทยท) next to the task, and select A

    • You can also use a โŒจ๏ธ โŒ˜ + E (Mac) or CTRL + E (PC) shortcut

    • Alternatively, type "/" followed by a color, e.g. "red"

  2. To remove a highlight, select a color again or keep pressing โŒจ๏ธ โŒ˜/Ctrl + E.


๐Ÿคนโ€โ™‚๏ธ Multi-Select Formatting

Need to format tasks in bulk? Highlight multiple tasks or lines of text with the mouse cursor and format them using one of the options from the previous section.


โž• Add-Ons Menu

Take your tasks to the next level by creating due dates, writing comments, attaching files, and assigning tasks with the Add-ons Menu. To access the Add-ons menu:

  • Method 1: Click the โž• icon next to a task and choose an Add-on from the list

  • Method 2: Use the โŒจ๏ธ "โŒ˜" + "/" keyboard shortcut and press a letter:

    • "D" = ๐Ÿ—“๏ธ Due Date

    • "A" = ๐Ÿ‘ค Assign

    • "C" = ๐Ÿ’ฌ Comment

    • "E" = ๐Ÿ”— Embed

    • "T" = โฑ๏ธ Timer

  • Method 3: Type "/" followed by the name of the Add-on, e.g. "timer"
