Quick actions are used in each task and 'Bulk Actions'. While adding a new task, you can use Quick Actions too to easily adjust your task.

On iOS, you can setup to go into Quick Actions when tapping a task or swipe in 'Settings > Preferences > Initial Task Page'. Also 'Initial Task Page (Add)' option manages your initial view while adding a new task.

On macOS, you can use Quick Actions panel or bottom side of right pane (with Integrate Panels option on). You can also use it with right click on a task.


There are various types of Quick Actions you can use. Below are the ones explained one by one.

- Clear Date : Clear due date of a task.

- Alarm : Turn on/off alarm (Toggle/On/Off option)
- List : Change between lists
- Relative Date : Add or subtract Minutes, Hours, Days, Weeks or Months
: If due date has passed, this action will start from today.
(This is when 'Calculate from Today when Overdue' option is checked. If not, it'll be calculated from existing due date. Default is checked)
