Creating a task from a Slack message

You can now create a task from a message already entered into Slack.

To create your task:

  • Mouse over to the right of the text, then click on the 3 horizontal dots ("more actions" button.)
  • Select "Create a Task"
  • A pop-up will appear, allowing you to create a task.  The Slack message will be the default task title, but can be edited.
  • You can also add a description, assign the task to a single team member, and add a due date as applicable.  The due date can be manually typed, or one of the preset options can be chosen.
  • Click "Create" to create the task.  (To cancel the task creation, select "Cancel.")
  • The task will then be created.  The standard drop-down message menu is available under the task creation message, to allow for additional customization, such as adding additional team members and tags.
