Autoassign my tasks to my own project

For my daily GTD and prioritization, I have a separate project where I put all the tasks which are assigned to me. Is there a way to automatically add a tasks assigned to me to a specified project?


#2

Is there a reason you’d like to have these in a separate project instead of simply creating sections or using tags on the MyTasks page?

Hi @paulminors I do a similar thing but mine is my own to do list of all different things I get allocated; I create most of my own tasks as a lot of our team aren’t computer savvy and come via email or verbally (work in the construction/quarry industry).
The reason I use the separate project for this is because if I delegate tasks they don’t show under My Tasks, but I would still like to be able to keep track of them easily.
Off topic a little but is there a work around for this, to keep delegated tasks under “My Tasks”? Or a better way than having a full project of my own to do list?

No, you can’t keep delegated tasks in MyTasks. One option could be to keep the parent task assigned to you and use a subtask to assign a part of the work to someone else. Or use the “Assign copy” feature.

Okay, will see what works. Thanks for your help :blush:

I would like to do something similar. Since my task don’t show custom fields (that i’m using for time estimation for example) I’m actually using different project for organising my tasks. Although I’m missing the feature of automatically showing me new tasks assigned to me!


#7

I would like this so I can organize my tasks by custom pulldowns and make use of the timeline or even better make “My Tasks” more powerful by adding these features (I understand that tasks come from projects that already have their own fields, so letting me pick three from all the pulldowns available in the system is fine)

Today, This week, later… was useful when I first started GTD but over the years I found that as my list of tasks has gotten longer and many tasks have been “deprioritized” and thus forgotten, I need a more nuanced way of sorting through them.

I’d also love a “My tasks” daily/weekly calendar so I don’t have to use google calendar to plan and keep track of my tasks and the time it takes me to do them

@ian3 I started to have a new approach. I have a project “October 2018”, “November 2018”… Anything that is not a priority is moved to the current month (or a later month), which I check regularly if I have free time :slight_smile:
So My Tasks is really small, no more than a dozen of tasks :+1:
