Within Teamwork Chat, you can create a Teamwork task directly from a message.
Administrators, standard users, and client users from your Teamwork site can create tasks from messages in Chat as long as they are active users and members of the chosen project with permission to add tasks.
- Teamwork collaborators and Teamwork Chat guest users cannot create tasks.
Hover over the relevant message and click the three dots in the additional options menu on the right. Select Create task from the dropdown menu.
In the create task modal, you can choose a project and task list for the task. You can also assign the task to users on the project, add a description, set estimated time, and select a priority.
A link to the Chat message the task is created from is automatically added to the task description, along with the user, message content, and a reference to the channel where the message was posted.
Click Create task to complete the process. You will receive a notification to confirm task creation along with options to view the task directly in the project or copy a link to the task.
When viewing a task in Teamwork that was created from a conversation, the default message information included in the task description will appear with the message link embedded.
Creating personal tasks
You can also view your existing personal tasks and create new ones in Teamwork Chat via the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + P.
This will bring up the personal tasks modal. You can type your task name next to the Add a personal task option in the bottom left. Press Enter/Return to create your personal task.
You can archive or delete personal tasks via the option menu (three dots) to the far right of each task name.
To archive all completed tasks, select the options menu (three dots) to the right of the Personal tasks header, and select Archive completed tasks.
