Task list on mobile apps

A task list is an element in a page that allows you to create tasks, add people to them and set labels & deadlines. Added tasks can be seen in a special dashboard for more convenient control over their execution.

In Nimbus Note you can work with tasks even from your phone! Just add your tasks to the task list and easily manage them. You can change your task position in one task list or move it to another list. What’s more, you can sort all your tasks by labels, assignees and dates using a dashboard.
