When we started designing Tasks for Hightrack, we immediately knew that we should include one decisive feature: nested tasks, a.k.a. subtasks. And we knew it because they play a major role in your daily organization, since many tasks require other actions that should be completed before the big one. We call that a ‘task family’.
Without subtasks in your application, you wind up having too many side projects or small lists, or trying to find odd ways to name your tasks. The consequence in both cases is a cluttered and sluggish organization.
In Hightrack we’ve designed subtasks the way we all want them: every nested task is like any other task, so you can add and edit it separately. In addition, they’re shown differently on your lists, so you can promptly spot the main task with the subtasks right behind it. The way you create subtasks is also very handy: just drag any task and drop it over the main one, and it will instantly become a subtask. And if you drag away that task from the mother task, it will be out of the family.
Setting a recurrence for any task is another biggie in terms of features. Like subtasks, repeating tasks are key for your organization needs. Because we all have things in our personal and professional life that we have to repeat daily, weekly, monthly and even yearly. And they are tasks, not events. That’s why Hightrack includes this feature for your tasks.
The way we’ve designed recurring tasks is very straightforward: when adding or editing any task, you have access to a quick popup with all the recurrence options you may need. In addition, all recurring tasks are grouped in a single view in your lists, so you can quickly know what tasks are programmed and what of recurrence they have.
We put a lot of effort and care designing Tasks. But as you probably know, Hightrack has two more applications. In the upcoming days we will be unveiling more details about these other powerful companions.
