This is a UX feature request.
Let the green (+) button "Add Task" create a task in the root location (no folder) instead of the current folder/project open right now.
Here the use-case: I am working on a ProjectX and something unrelated comes up that needs to be assigned to someone else: I click the green button (no matter where I'm located) and send out that task to my colleague. The task does not show up in ProjectX.
In the project I already have an "Add Task" button in the List view, table view and Shift-click in Timeline view (great to know, btw!)... so I don't need the Green + button to add a task there. It's redundant and visually distinct enough that it could be used to create un-related tasks.
