Personal tasks

Personal tasks are a special type of task that only you can see, and that cannot be assigned to others or moved into other channels/spaces.

There are two ways to create a personal to-do list with Workast.

  • Within Slack
  • In the Workast web application

Within Slack

On the left hand side of the Slack chat you will see your direct messages.

Click on the direct message with Workast

All the tasks created in this direct message with Workast are on your personal to-do list.

Create a task by typing /todo followed by the task details

E.g. /todo Send out calendar invite for CRM meeting

Press enter to save the task

This will add the task to your Personal to-do list


To see all your tasks, type list in the direct message with workast and all of your tasks will be listed.  Your personal tasks will show under "Personal Tasks."

Workast web application

Alternatively you can login to the web app by clicking this link
