Tasks + Projects
Do More. Be More. Live More.
Shortcuts to an Organized Life.

WHAT CAN I DO HERE?

Tasks + Projects gives you the abil­ity to cre­ate, orga­nize, pri­or­i­tize, track, and check off even your most com­plex projects and tasks in a stream­lined, nat­ural, and easy-to-understand way. You can cre­ate projects for any type of work you wish to com­plete, and your app also includes built-in projects for health and edu­ca­tion. For exam­ple, you can cre­ate a Health Project for los­ing 10 pounds or an Edu­ca­tion Project for an item such as a Master’s thesis.

For projects, you’re able to asso­ciate ref­er­ence data such as check­lists, appoint­ments, reminders, book­marks, files, audio (voice memos), pho­tos, videos, draw­ings, notes, expenses, ser­vices, shop­ping items. To keep your project on task, auto­matic reminders through inte­gra­tion with your device’s cal­en­dar are avail­able. Tasks can be recur­ring, and you can eas­ily view and update tasks from your cal­en­dar. In addi­tion, your app sup­ports man­age­ment of Google, Too­dledo, and Asana tasks.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS

Projects: A group of tasks and ref­er­ence mate­ri­als designed to pro­duce a prod­uct, ser­vice or other type of result. Projects can be used for busi­ness, health, edu­ca­tion, or other cat­e­gories that are suit­able for your life or business.

Tasks: A piece of work to be completed.

Online Tasks: Tasks from online apps or ser­vices, such as Google™, Asana™, or Toodledo®.

TOUCHPOINTS

Touch­points to other LightAr­row app top­ics allow you to define tasks and projects from within the con­text of those top­ics. For exam­ple, if you need to per­form work for events you’re plan­ning, you can define tasks directly in the Events + Appoint­ments topic. The same is true for assign­ments you have for school or work defined in the Edu­ca­tion topic, for health pro­ce­dures defined in the Health + Goals topic, for ser­vices you receive as defined in the Peo­ple + Ser­vices topic, and so on. In all of these cases, the task infor­ma­tion you enter will be acces­si­ble not only from those top­ics, but also from Tasks + Projects.

CATEGORIES FOR TASKS + PROJECTS

Cat­e­gories are avail­able for use with Tasks + Projects. You can cre­ate, mod­ify, hide, or delete cat­e­gories via Set­tings or directly from a tile for a Project. When a cat­e­gory is deleted, it is com­pletely removed from your app. When a cat­e­gory is hid­den, it no longer appears in the Cat­e­gories tile, but it remains defined, and is still avail­able in the cat­e­gory list when you are defin­ing a new Project. Note that cat­e­gories that are in use or serve as touch­points to another topic can­not be deleted or hid­den. For infor­ma­tion about cre­at­ing cat­e­gories, refer to your help for Man­ag­ing Cat­e­gories.

ALERTS

Alerts dis­play at the top of the Tasks + Projects view for any­thing related to projects or tasks that are due within the next five days or cur­rently over­due. For exam­ple, if you’ve set a task to pick up your dry clean­ing, it will appear in the Alerts section.

LOCAL NOTIFICATIONS

Local noti­fi­ca­tions will also alert you to projects and tasks depend­ing upon the reminders that you’ve set up in My Set­tings.

PROJECTS (NEW PROJECT / PROJECT VIEW)

A project is any indi­vid­ual or col­lab­o­ra­tive under­tak­ing that is planned and designed to achieve a par­tic­u­lar goal. Projects typ­i­cally have tasks asso­ci­ated with them. An exam­ple of a project could be “Re-organize Kitchen” or “Re-build Web­site.” In your LightAr­row app, you can asso­ciate sev­eral types of items to projects in order to effi­ciently plan them, and to orga­nize them in a way that you can eas­ily find the infor­ma­tion that you need. For exam­ple, you can asso­ciate tasks, check­lists, appoint­ments, expenses, shop­ping items, files, and other items.

To under­stand the issues involved in sync­ing LightAr­row app tasks and Google Tasks, please refer to the Google infor­ma­tion page. To under­stand the issues involved in sync­ing LightAr­row app tasks and Too­dledo tasks, please read the Too­dle­doo infor­ma­tion page. Sync­ing tasks requires a net­work connection.

Google-specific infor­ma­tion:

  • Google Tasks sup­ports sub­tasks and LightAr­row apps do not. There­fore, all Google tasks are dis­played in a flat list.
  • Once you sync a task, if you delete that task in your LightAr­row app, it is also removed from your online service.

Toodledo-specific infor­ma­tion:

  • Any tasks in your Too­dledo online account which do not have a folder spec­i­fied will reside in the Root Folder in the Too­dleDo section.
  • The Too­dledo Root Folder always appears at the top of this sec­tion, fol­lowed by of all your Too­dledo fold­ers, sorted alphabetically.

If a previously-synced task in your online ser­vice has been deleted from the online ser­vice, the LightAr­row copy of that task will be deleted as soon as you per­form a Sync All. If a hybrid task is deleted from your LightAr­row app, but not deleted from the online ser­vice from which it orig­i­nally came, the next Sync All oper­a­tion will cause the hybrid task to be recre­ated in your LightAr­row App. Tasks that were added to the online ser­vice will result in a copy of that task being cre­ated in the LightAr­row app upon the next Sync All operation.

    I would like to take a group of tasks that I used for a pre­vi­ous project, dupli­cate them and use them for an upcom­ing project. I would use the dupli­cates as a tem­plate and mod­ify them for thee upcom­ing project. Is that possible?

      Hi Alan,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us.

      Yes, you can copy a project (includ­ing all the project tasks). This can be done from the project detail view’s “Actions” but­ton –> “Copy” option.
      In the future, we will sup­port tem­plates (includ­ing tem­plates for projects).

      Best Regards,

    I’ve just received the update to my.agenda and I am a lit­tle annoyed about the updated task list. I used to be able to view all the over­due tasks for today and pre­vi­ous days which were not yet com­pleted, and this served as my daily to do list. How­ever now I am no longer able to do this from the task list, when group­ing by due date I can see every­thing due this month instead of over­due items. I real­ize that I can see a list of over­due items from the “home” view, but I can’t add this view to the hot list. Is there any way to either add this to the hot list, or see a list of over­due items from the task list?

    I also find it annoy­ing that I now have to tap twice in order to update a task sta­tus instead of the one tap that it was before. But that’s a whole dif­fer­ent story.

      Hi Alaina,

      Thanks for reach­ing out! While mov­ing a new usabil­ity and con­sis­tency par­a­digm for­ward across the board, in some areas (includ­ing the ones you have men­tioned) we made some usabil­ity mis­takes. We are sorry for that. The good news is, we’ll fix some of this in a patch very soon, and the rest of it in our May update which is focussed on the task and cal­en­dar areas. Thank you for stay­ing engaged and allow­ing us to improve and fix things.

    How do I set a pri­or­ity for a task. It says pri­or­ity not set. I would like to as I am used to the franklin method

      Hi Jim,
      If you tap on the task and tap on Open to see its detail view, you will see Pri­or­ity and Effort etc in the sec­ond sec­tion of the view.
      Please let us know if you need any assis­tance.
