To add a task quickly, simply start typing in the input field on the top of the Tasks section and hit enter. Continue to type and hit enter to add more tasks. You can go back later and click on the task to assign responsibility or make changes using the sidebar. For each task, you can have as many subtasks as you need. Once the top level task is created, hover on the task row and click + to the right of the task row to create a subtask. You can add as many subtasks as you'd like quickly. Simply type and hit enter to add more subtasks.
When adding tasks, you can also use the icons on the right of the input field to set start and end dates, assign the task to one or multiple people, mark them private, and send email notifications to specific users.
All Projects tasks
By going to All Projects - Tasks, you can add tasks to any project. Simply select the project from the drop down at the top of the page to the left of the input field before typing the tasks. Type the task in the input field and click enter to add multiple tasks quickly. Note that the All Projects is only available after you have more than one project.
When adding a new task or subtask, click mark private from the bottom of the Add Responsibility panel and only those given permissions will be able to view the task or subtask.
Marking tasks & subtasks complete
To mark a task or subtask complete, simply check the box to the far left on the task. Once a task is checked off as completed, all subtasks will be marked complete as well. When marking a task incomplete, all of the associated subtasks will remain marked complete unless you check them as incomplete individually.

Filter by responsible persons, dates, active / complete / incomplete / flagged by using the filters at the top of the Tasks section. You can also quickly print or export your tasks using the icons at the top of the tasks section.
Different task views
