Within Teamwork, you can create a personal to-do list of tasks that are not directly associated with any project.

Your Personal Tasks panel will be accessible to you at the top of the Tasks tab of your profile.

Note: Your personal tasks are only visible to you. They will not be visible when someone uses the impersonate feature.
