Copying a task

Just as you can move the task, it can be copied. Copying is a good way to make it easier to work with typified tasks that are often repeated and have the same process.

TIP: How to use copying tasks for simple process

The task can include subtasks, so it can be used to create a simple process. From this task, you can create a new one by copying and you do not have to create a new one manually every time.

There are two ways to copy a task.

Copy via the three-dot menu

Go to a project detail or particular To-Do list. You can copy a task via the three-dot menu on the left from a task name. Click Copy task…
