Arrow next to blue dot


When I look at My Tasks, some of the tasks have a small grey arrow next to the blue dot and some don’t. What does that mean? I thought maybe it meant the task contained sub-tasks but that’s not it.


You are right, that is weird. Can’t find the reason either :thinking:

Hi there, @Jacqueline_Fell and @Bastien_Siebman-

Great question here! I had to do some digging myself and it looks like the tasks with the grey arrow indicates whether the task has metadata (either a description, subtask, attachment, or comment).

Thanks for bringing this to our attention! I’ll share this with our Product Team. Maybe we can find a better way of letting customers know what this arrow means in-app.
