July 12, 2022 5 Min Read

Hi Taskaders  🎉

We’ve worked hard to make Taskade work better for you! Here’s what’s new:

⚡️ Mixed Formatting in New Outliner

The new outlining experience is finally here! You can select multiple formats on the same indent level, with tasks, notes, and paragraphs in the same block. We moved the 🔽 Fold / ▶️ Unfold button to the left, next to the Drag Icon (⋮⋮).  Learn more.

⚡️ Natural Language Due Dates

Taskade now supports Natural Language Processing (NLP) for task due dates. Simply add a task and start typing /slash ‘Friday 8 am,” and Taskade will automatically convert the natural language input to a due date. Learn more.

You can also use natural language in the new Drag Icon (⋮⋮) menu. Click (⋮⋮) to the left of your task and type a date/time combination to see a due date suggestion based on your input. Hit Enter to confirm, and you’re good to go!  🥳 Learn more.

⚡️ Quick Add → Block Selection

The Quick Add shortcut now supports block selection, so you can choose where exactly you want to add your tasks and notes. Press ⌨️ ⌘ + K (Mac) or CTRL + K (Windows) to open Quick Add and add tasks in seconds. Learn more.
