Agenda

This article describes how to use the Agenda feature, which requires a Pro, Business, or Enterprise account. As a Basic user, you can use the FOCUS section on Agenda. 

See this comparison chart that outlines MeisterTask's plans and prices for more information.

 

Introduction

Agenda is a personal, private board, individual to each user. Tasks from any project can be pinned to the customizable sections on the agenda.

You can find Agenda in the left panel under Dashboard. If Agenda does not appear immediately, create a new project to trigger its appearance. 

To open the Agenda from anywhere in MeisterTask, press Ctrl (or Cmd on Mac) + shift + O.

Sections

To create a section, click the plus to the right of the focus section.

To change the color of a section, hover over the section header, click the arrow that appears, and select a new color.

To move a section, click then drag the section header. 

To delete a section, hover over the section header, click the arrow that appears, then click delete.

Task Feed

The leftmost section on the agenda shows suggestions of tasks you might like to pin to your agenda. Click on the arrow in the header to choose between tasks assigned to you or recent tasks. 

If you choose assigned to me, you can sort the tasks by due date, name or project.

If you choose recent tasks, the task feed will display tasks recently modified on which you are either a watcher or the assignee.

To collapse or re-open the task feed, click the button above the task feed header.

Pin Tasks

There are two ways to pin tasks to your agenda:

  • You can drag and drop them from the task feed to the various sections on your agenda.

  • You can pin them directly in the task dialogue. To do this, open a task, click the pin button, and then select the desired section from the drop-down menu.

Remove Tasks

There are two ways to remove tasks from your agenda:

  • You can drag a task from a section to the space above the agenda.

  • You can re-click the section name in the drop-down menu of the task dialogue.

Update:

  • If Agenda does not appear for you immediately, please create a new project. This should trigger Agenda to appear!
  • Agenda does not appear on your iPad because your iPad uses our mobile app. We are working on this and Agenda should appear in the mobile app in the next few days!

Amazing feature for anyone who has a lot of different projects. But is there a way to automatically assign tasks from a certain project to an agenda column? I couldn't find anything in the automations.

Hi @Craig McDonald, Agenda should be available in the iOS app by the end of this week if everything goes as planned :)

Same comment as @FrankAstair; automation of assigning to Agenda would make it perfect!

Is there a timeline for Agenda coming to the Android app?

Also supportive of automating to agenda, rather than relying on assigning to myself as a workaround

Avatar

Nikola Oberländerová

Hi @Stuart Gibbons, Agenda is coming to the Android app very soon, tomorrow or in the beginning of next week :)

@Dennis Lemmens @Frank Astair It's not possible to set up such an automation at the moment, but it's a great idea! I will forward your feedback to our developers to consider it for the future updates.

Is there an update on when we will see Agenda on the iPad app?

Avatar

Nikola Oberländerová

@Robert Wilkins We have released Agenda to some users already and are currently working our way up to 100% app releases planned in the upcoming week. 4.0 should be the iOS app version with Agenda in it :)

I like the Agenda feature. Quick question. I was wanting to eliminate the orange colored "focus" section. While all the other sections have the pop-down carat, alas not the "focus" section. I'd very much like to "lose my focus." Can you help? ;-)

@Christopher Holmes It's unfortunately currently not possible to remove or modify the Focus tab in Agenda. For the time being, you could move the Focus section all the way to the right so it's not in your way.

We appreciate our customers' suggestions for improving Agenda and all of those will be considered for future updates :) Thank you for the feedback!
