In MeisterTask, the plus button always creates something new. You will find the + button in the top bars of your dashboard and projects, as well as inside the project boards. You can use the plus buttons to create new tasks.
Create new task from dashboard
After logging in we are automatically redirected to the dashboard. To quickly add tasks we use the + button in the header. Below the input field you can define to which project and section the task should be added to.
Create Task will automatically open the new task and allow us to add a description, assignee,...
Create new task from project
When working on a project you can use the + button as well to add tasks. This comes really handy if you want to quickly add a new task to another project without leaving your current project as you are able to select the project and section below the input field.
Create new task in a section
If you are already working in your project and want to add multiple tasks to a section the easiest way is to use the + button within the section. This way you can quickly add multiple tasks to fill your project.
Note: The task will not automatically open after adding it so you can add multiple tasks.
If you still want to open the task to add more description, an assignee,... then just press ENTER a second time after adding the task.
Create new task by email
If you want to add a task without even opening MeisterTask this is the right option for you. Every section has a unique email address, and you can use it to add tasks to that particular section. See instructions here.
