With this strategy you can save projects and tasks and then load them anytime later.
This is great for a project or task that you want to reuse.
Think of the saved item as a template that you can then reuse again and again.
How to save a task or project
To save a task or project, click on the edit icon (cog) of that task/project and click the save icon (floppy disk) at the top.
How to load a saved task or project (template).
Master List - column view
One way to load a project into your Master List (column view) is to click the plus button at the top of the column and then select "Load project".
Master List - list view or column view
To load a task or project, first create a new empty task or project (trough menu above, plus/flag button at end of column of shift + t/shift+p shortcut) and then type "load " followed by a space. You will then see a dropdown menu with your saved tasks/projects respectively.
Day view (and other input bars)
You can load a task into your days directly by typing "load " into the task input bar and selecting a saved task from the dropdown.
What gets saved?
These properties get saved:
- time estimate
- subprojects (saved project)
Any date related property (due date, planned week/month) does not get saved.
The context/parent (which category/project a task or project is in) also does not get saved! Here is how to add a specific parent to a saved item.
Creating/editing a template task or project
Instead of saving an existing project or task you can also directly create a saved item (template) by going to the saved items overlay.
There you can also see a list of your current saved items and delete or edit them if necessary.
