Possibility to un-assign tasks with a keyboard shortcut

Hi guys,

Whenever I’m processing incoming tasks from ‘My Tasks’ list, I process many tasks by adding them to the relevant project and then unassigning the task from myself to clear up ‘My Tasks’ again.

But while processing I cannot seem to find a way to use -just- keyboard shortcuts to unassign tasks from myself.

Everything else works super efficiently with shortcuts (selecting tasks, adding to project, adding relevant tags, etc) but when I type [tab+A], I cannot backspace to unassign from myself (anymore). This only seems to be possible by clicking the X manually with use of mouse/ trackpad. This is killing my speed and efficiency in processing incoming tasks.

I know I can use the multi-select X approach, but it’s still an action that requires a mouse or trackpad, so still suboptimal. Every grab for a mouse, decreases speed and efficiency so I hope there’s a fix for this!

Learned this is not on your roadmap yet, would love to see it picked up!

@Natalia Is there any update on this? Keep running into this on a daily basis.

It was possible to unassign tasks with tab-a + backspace before multi-assign feature was added, so, as it was possible before, it seems like it shouldn’t be hard to fix. you recon someone could have a look? :pray: highly appreciated.

Hi @AnneNynke :wave:

Have a great Thursday!
