I use the calendar instead of the task list under my profile and being able to quickly add tasks without the extra hassle of clicking on them again and setting them to public would save us so much headache. My anxiety is making me double-check on all of them regularly and it is incredibly frustrating!
This is a WORKspace and it makes absolutely no sense not to make a feature like this available. There is so much demand yet the usual response is projects, projects, projects. There’s a persistent assumption by admins here that only collaborative tasks are relevant to colleagues. This needs to stop.
The default setting remains a CHOICE to users; managers/supervisors for example can still leave their defaults as private. Having a default setting would ADD to the overall user experience and I don’t see any negatives to it. Please implement it ASAP!
