Tips & Tricks Tuesday: A quick look at new tasks with a Smart List

Tuesday, August 6, 2013 by Andrew Conkling

There are a variety of ways to add tasks quickly — a look at our Apps page will show you many of them!

Following up on that, this week's tip, shared by mvl1729, shows a quick way to see just those tasks you added today — to add a tag, move them to another list, or even just to complete them! :)

Many times, I just quickly create a task when I'm thinking about it. To ensure I use the correct due dates, tags and repeat intervals I made it a habit to go through my new tasks daily.

To help me do this, I created a Smart List CreatedToday to display my new tasks:


It's very simple, but I find this is one of the lists I use most often.
