Practical examples

Project for the new task

Preset the project for the new created task by adding pid=project number to the URL. Example of URL adrese https://app.freelo.cz/?createTask=true&pid=1024

But keep in mind that the user has to have access to the project to create the task.

If there is not set the 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. day after the creation of the task).

Floating dedalines

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:

https://app.freelo.cz/dashboard?createTask=true&pid=71603&tlid=187200&tt=Report&tc=And%20here%20you%20can%20comment%20on%20the%20task.&st[0]=subtask1&st[1]=subtask2&td=2021-01-01
