Queues are ordered lists used to prioritize your tasks. You can’t have a task without first creating a queue for it to live in. Here’s what you need to know to start customizing your workspace.
Add a queue
Hover over the category you’d like the queue to live in, click the dropdown menu on the right and choose Add Queue.
This will create a new queue that you can give a name
Rename a queue
You can rename a queue in 2 ways:
In the left-hand panel, click the dropdown menu for the queue you wish to rename, then click Rename.
This will open a pop-up window where you can edit the queue’s name.
Click the name of the queue currently open and make your changes there. Press the Enter key when you’re done.
Change queue color
To set a new color, open the queue’s dropdown menu from the left-hand panel and select Change color. Then choose a color from the options.
View a queue
Click on the queue name in the left-hand panel to view the tasks in a queue.
👉Pro Tip: The current queue will appear in bold in the category
Number of tasks in a queue
You can easily see the number of tasks in a queue by glancing at the queue name. The number in parentheses to the right of the name shows how many active, top-level tasks that queue has.
You can move queues within a category by clicking and dragging the queue to the desired position.
If you want to move a queue to a different category, make sure to expand the new category before moving the queue.
👉 Pro Tip: To quickly sort all queues within a category alphabetically, choose Alphabetize queues from the category’s dropdown menu
Clean up a queue
Depending on your checkmark settings, your queues can get clogged up pretty quickly with already-completed tasks that are still hanging around.
If this ever gets too overwhelming, you can click Archive Completed from the queue’s dropdown menu in the left-hand panel to send all completed tasks to the queue archive.
Refresh a queue
If you recently made a change that isn't reflected in a queue, you can refresh the queue by clicking the refresh button. This will make sure the queue has the most recent data from the servers.
Delete a queue
A queue might become less useful over time. You can remove old queues so they don’t take up any of your mental space by clicking Delete Queue from the queue’s dropdown menu in the left-hand panel. This will delete the queue and all of its active and archived tasks.
