Sometimes having the context of your entire queue’s tasks is helpful when determining how to tackle the specific task at hand. But it can also be distracting to see everything else on your plate. That’s where the Task Overview comes in.

Task Overview

The Task Overview allows you to see an individual task and its subtasks on its own. It’s useful for when you need to settle in and focus on completing one specific task without distractions until you get it done.

In this view, you can still change all the properties of the task, reorder subtasks and add new subtasks.

Open Task Overview

To view the Task Overview, click on the task’s More menu (3 vertical buttons) and choose Task Overview.

You can also double click a task’s colored circle at any time to open the Task Overview.
