Create New Folder/Project and Add Task from Within the Task Panel
The "+" button for adding task to folders or task is just begging for the option to create new folders or task from it. It would save our team a lot of time if we could create folders and add the task directly from the task itself instead of closing it, creating the folder, opening up the task again and adding it.
Hi Kevin, thanks for your suggestion here. I wonder if you could share some screenshots of this so it's totally clear to other members, and our Product Team, what exact actions you suggest for upvotes. Thank you for sharing!
I would love to see this happen. If you had a UX designer watch someone do this in OmniFocus and try to get the same result in Wrike, it would be immediately apparent how much it would improve the experience and flow.
In OF, I can start typing from within the task and it lists possible matches. So far, same experience. But, if there is no match, it gives me the option to create the project or context on the spot.
By contrast in Wrike, I have can either create a task and then create the project or folder and then place the task in the container or I can create the project or folder and then create the task and then tag it with the project or folder.
More elegant would be: create the task, click the + and start typing. If there is a match, assign it. If not, give an option to create it. (e.g., in OmniFocus you type the name and press command+enter to create it. Very simple...
This function is already present in the mobile app, why not add it to the desktop/web version as well?
Here is a video of the way that OmniFocus has implemented this:
