Priority Task List

Your "Next Actions" and how to get them done

Priority List

Introduction to Priority List (video)

Definition of Priority List in Nozbe

Priority list is where you turn to actually start getting things done. This place is for collecting all your priority actions that need to be done next or as soon as possible. You can choose which actions to put here - just click the star on a task to make it your priority. Some tasks will be added to this list automatically (more on that later).

Next Actions

  1. Priority list is the default view for Nozbe to start on when you log in, but if need be you can go to it by clicking the star icon

  2. This is the project that this Priority task belongs to

  3. You can see here the number of comments and all parameters set for this task, such as due date, recurring, categories set

  4. Click this star to add/remove a task from your Priorities

According to GTD, Priorities (Next Actions) should be the next physical actions that will move your project forward. You can have multiple Priorities in a project, but be careful not to add too many. They can be filtered, for example by a category, to find the best tasks to do at a given time.

Tasks That Become Your Priority Automatically

  • Starred task - a task added to the Priority view with a star
  • Due or overdue task - a task with a due date set will become your Priority at the moment it is due (at midnight - when our system generates tasks for the day) and when it’s overdue - provided that the person responsible is you (or "anyone").
  • Tasks with due date and time set without a star All manually unstarred tasks get the star automatically a half an hour before the due time. These tasks appear automatically on the top of the priority list then.
  • Task delegated to you - a task delegated to you by another Nozbe user in a project you're both sharing will become your Priority instantly. This is the only way other users can "have influence" on your priority list - by delegating tasks to you. You can later decide to get the delegated task done or remove it from the priority list by removing the star associated with it.

Trick: Adding Priority with a "#" Shortcut

When you input a task through the app or email, type #priority or #! after the task name to automatically add it to your Priority list.
