#TechTipThursday: Introduction to Task Labels

TTT_DEClogoTask Labels is an app that allows you to organize just about every aspect of your life into ‘labels’. You can separate different extracurricular activities, courses, occupations, and even tasks for your everyday life. Within each ‘label’, you can insert various tasks. This app helps you keep your busy life in order; you can access the web version here. The app and the web version sync so you will never lose your data. Both the app and the web version look similar, making toggling between the interfaces seamless for the user.

This post includes screenshots from the web version but, because the user interface is similar you should not notice a difference if you’re following along in the app. To begin you’ll need to create an account, on either the app or web interface, with an email address and password.

Navigating Task Labels

Once you are on the website, click the ‘+’ icon on the toolbar located in the top left on the screen. Once you do this, you have the option to create a ‘task’, ‘label’, or ‘label group’.

For your reference,

  • A task is something you need to do;
  • A label is a category in which you wish to place a task; and
  • A a label group is two or more labels you wish to group together.

On the Road to Organization

You can create a ‘label’ by selecting the ‘+Label’ option. The screen seen below will appear. You can select a color and an icon to set your labels apart. Once you have chosen these criteria you can click ‘Save’.

To begin adding tasks, click on the ‘+Task’ button. You will see a screen like the one seen below. Here, you can give your task a name, add additional notes, set the priority, and decide which label specific tasks should go under.
