Tasks are a simple way to manage your work.  Tasks can be part of a larger project or stand-alone items that need to be completed.   This guide will show you how to get started with your first tasks in Workast.

Task creation

On the left-hand taskbar, click on the space in which you would like to create the task.

Click on +Create new task where you can start typing your new task.  You can add a new task in any list in the space/channel.

Type the details of the task to create a new task.  Add an assignee(s) and a due date/time if you wish by clicking on the assignee and due date icons.  Hit enter to create your task.

Quick tip - you can add a due date to a task by adding it after the task title - click here to learn more. You can also open assignee options by hitting the tab key.

The task has now been created in the space. Any assignees will receive a notification of the task in their Workast channel in Slack.
