    Hi Josh, thanks for your feedback here. I think this is an interesting approach.ย 
    ย 
    You might already be aware that we have some integrations where you canย create tasks from emailย and import multiple tasks fromย Excel spreadsheetsย that may come in useful.

    Thanks for sharing here!

    I have the same request.

    I get an email from some one withย 

    • Task1
    • Task2
    • Task3

    So all I want to do i copy and paste them into 3 seperate tasks.

    Do I have to paste them into excel and then import that ?

    Hi Julian! Welcome to the Community.
    ย 
    You can use the Wrikeย email integrationย so you can 'send' the email to Wrike to create a task with this information. It will only create one task per email but you can go straight to the task and duplicate it twice so you have all the details in three separate tasks that you can then format and work from. It's not exactly what you're looking for but would help getย theย info from the email to Wrike quickly.
    ย 
    Alternatively, you can use theย import Excel featureย by using the importing template. Once you fill this template out, you can then import it to Wrike. Each option really depends on what best suits you and the level of detail you want to capture when creating the tasks in Wrike.
    ย 
    Let me know what you think of the above options and thanks for sharing your input here! We'll ensure it's reported to our Product team [thumbs up]

    Thanks for the welcome and the suggestions - They both seem like using a sledge hammer to crack a nut!ย 
    Just looking for a quick and simple way to be able to a few tasks-ย  might be from an email, meeting minutes or other list.
    This is in Trello, Taskworld and other products - however i appreciate it may not be a trivial thing to add this functionality and it seems i'm not the only one looking for this.
    Keep up the good work and hope it gets up the list on the development pipeline.ย

    I agree, it's much easier just pasting the list of tasks instead of having to first open excel, then paste the list, save the excel file, import it and then remove the excel file.

    +1 for this request. Pasting a list to create multiple tasks would be incredibly useful and used many times.

    + 1 for this request. This is the best way to create new tasks! Import documents and e-mail doesn't work for me, too slow, complicated and hard way to do.ย ย

    It appears that a similar request exists fromย Matt Pavid:

    Paste multiple tasks or sub tasksย 

    Perhaps votes for these feature requests for the same feature can be consolidated?
