Now you can create new tasks via URL with preset information such as project, To-Do list, subtasks, comment and deadlines (fixed and floating).
Project for the new task
Preset the project for the newly created task by adding pid=project number to the URL. Example of URL address https://app.freelo.io/?createTask=true&pid=1024.
But keep in mind that the user has to have access to the project to create the task.
Copy the project number and add it to the URL for creating a task.
To-Do list for the new task
This feature works only with the combination with pid, separate these two features with &. To preset the To-Do list, write tlid=To-Do list number. To find the To-Do list number go on the detail of the To-Do list. Example of URL https://app.freelo.io/dashboard?createTask=true&pid=1024&tlid=3299.
Then, add the To-Do list number to the URL – tlid=To-Do list number.
To preset the task name use tt=task name and add this to the URL. There is an example of the URL https://app.freelo.io?createTask=true&tt=name.
For multiword name use %20, for example tt=multiword%20task%20name
Also, you can preset the first comment of the task by adding tc=comment to the URL. There is an example of the URL https://app.freelo.io?createTask=true&tc=comment.
Moreover, you can preset one or more smart subtasks. To preset the subtasks use st[index]=subtask, if you need to add more subtasks use st=subtask1&st=subtask2.
To preset the task deadline use td. You can preset set due dates and floating as well.
- 2021-09-30 – sets only date
- 2021-09-30T20:45 – sets the date and time
- 2021-09-30T20:45_2021-10-04T23:45 – sets the due date from – to
- 2021-09-30 – sets only date
If there is no set firm deadline for the task you can set the deadline X days after creation for example. To preset floating deadlines use td=X days after creation (td=5 means that the deadline will be 5 days after the task creation). Or you can preset the deadline from – to via td=X:Y (td=3:5 deadline will be set from 3. to 5. the day after the creation of the task).
Completely preset task
You can combine all these parameters together to create a URL that will lead to the creation of a task with a preset project, To-Do list, task name, deadline, etc. Just separate the points with &.
The URL of such a preset task is for example:
What it is good for
Creating a task via a URL with preset information can be useful, for example, to link other administrations or systems.
For example, you can have a button on the order list to create a task in Freelo if the order
is problematic in some way. When creating a task, the client’s name, the order number,
etc. are automatically filled in. Another example would be to create a task with a claim,
where the information will also be preset and you just fill in what is needed.
You can also have a similar add-on to your communication tool with clients (e-mail, chat…). In your
e-mail you can have the add-on that will preset certain information directly into the task in Freelo for example, the task title will be the same as the subject of the e-mail, the task content (first comment) will be the text of the e-mail, the project, and the To-Do list will be preset at the same time.
