Creating a task from a message in the app desktop and web

Last updated on January 20, 2022
The app makes it easy to create a new task from a message post in any of your conversations. You don’t need to copy the post and paste it in the new task description dialog input as it is automatically filled. This reduces the time for you to create tasks when the post already contains the information needed.

Creating a task from a message

  1. Navigate to Message via the left-hand navigation bar.
  2. Select a conversation from the conversation list.
  3. Hover your mouse over the message that you want to create as a task.
  4. Click the More icon at the far right of the message.
  5. Click New task. In the New task window, the message is automatically filled in the new task description dialog input at the bottom. You can edit this field to customize it.
