Personal tasks

Personal tasks are a special type of task that only you can see, and that cannot be assigned to others.

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



Workast web application

To head to the Workast web app from Slack, click on any of the blue Task IDs of the tasks in a channel

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

On the left hand side under Spaces click on Personal

This will show you all the tasks on your personal to-do list

You can also add new personal tasks in the web app, or break your personal tasks down into multiple lists.  For more information on basic task creation, see our Quick Start guide here.

If you create a Personal task and need others to view it, you will need to move it into another space.  To learn how to move tasks, click here.
