How to remove or delete a task

There are two ways to delete a task within To-do bot:  

- Within Slack

- In the Workast web application

How to delete a task in Slack

When you first create a task in Slack, a drop-down message menu is available underneath the task.

Click the elipses (three dots) and then select "Remove."

If the task was created a while ago, you can still delete the task.

Use the /todo list to bring up the list of tasks in the channel, then click on the elipses (three dots) to the right of the task that you'd like to delete, then select "Remove."


Workast web app

In Slack, find the task that you want to delete by typing /todo list in the channel

Click on the blue task link which will take you to the Workast web app.  

Alternatively you can login to the Workast by clicking this link

The link will open Workast at the Task details page for that specific task

On the top right-hand corner there are three vertical dots.  Click on this menu, select "Delete" and follow the prompts.


If you have deleted the task by mistake, you can click on "Restore it" to put the task back into the space.
