Overview

The content area of the tasks screen is divided into three areas: the Tasks itself, the Tags and the Tasklist Selector.

The Tasks List

The main content are lists the task items that match the current selection of active lists, filters and tags. The listed tasks are sorted by due date (ascending) and completed ones move to the bottom.

Tasks can be organized hierarchically and the list appears like a tree structure. A small arrow icon on the left side of a task bar indicates subordinated tasks and expands or collapses the tree upon click.

Some basic editing like flagging, assigning a due date as well as completing tasks can directly be done in the list by clicking the checkbox, the flag icon or the date selector.

A single click anywhere else on a task bar displays all details in a dialog box. Hit <Esc> on the keyboard or click the close icon to hide it again.

Double-clicks open the clicked task item for full detail editing.
