Using your Favorites
The Favorites view is the place to go to focus on the tasks that matter most to you. Here, you’ll find a collection of special views that aggregate tasks from across the entire workspace.
If you need a break from the sidebar or a bit more room to breathe, you can close the sidebar by entering
Alt-Tab) on your keyboard.
If you want a space separate from your team to have tasks stored, you can use Private Tasks. The tasks you created there are completely private by default, though you can invite users to individual tasks. Private Tasks is also a great place to whip up a bunch of tasks for processing at a later time.
When creating a new task, you must choose Private Tasks under the project line for it to show up in Private Tasks.
My Tasks is an overview of all the tasks that you’re responsible for, which includes tasks you’ve created for yourself and that others have assigned to you.
Unassigned is an overview of all the tasks across in the workspace that have not been assigned to anyone. Unassigned tasks can be assigned to other users or claimed by you.
To add another level of priority to your tasks, beyond due dates, you can add flags. This not only sets them apart visually, but adds them to the Flagged view in Favorites so you can work through only the tasks that require your immediate attention and avoid being distracted by other, less pertinent tasks in your projects.
The Subscribed list in Favorites shows you all the tasks that you’re subscribed to, which means you’ll be notified in-app or by email of any activity that takes place on these tasks. Use Subscribed to keep track of the tasks that you’re following in one place.
Any task that you assign to another teammate will appear in the Delegated view. Like Subscribed, it’s a unified space to quickly check in on tasks that you’re involved in but aren’t responsible for completing.
The archive houses any projects you’ve archived. To learn how to archive projects you’re not using, check out this article.
Customizing your favorites
You can easily customize Favorites so that the views and projects you actively use are always shown while the ones you use infrequently are hidden from view. To see all your Favorites, simply click the "Show All" link in the sidebar and "Show Less", alternatively, to collapse.
To hide a view in your Favorites, click the
v icon beside the view name to open the actions menu and then select "Hide from Favorites". The view will be bumped down the list and greyed out or it will disappear into the hidden view section (depending on whether your favorite menu is expanded or not.)
If there’s a hidden view you want to show by default, simply click the list actions icon and click "Show in Favorites."
You can also customize by dragging and dropping views at the top or bottom of Favorites and then reorder those views to prioritize.
