How do I use Smart Add?

Below are details on each of the task properties, and how you can include them when you add a task. Many of the properties have an auto-suggest feature for quick access to your existing tags, lists, locations, etc. Can't remember all the symbols? No problem! In the web app, click on the help icon to the right of the "Add Task" field to access a handy cheat sheet.

Task Name and Due Date

Enter your due date and/or time alongside your task name (include it after the name if you can). You can enter due dates in any of the supported due date formats. Note: The task name and due date should always come first, but you can include the below properties in any order after that.

Pick up the milk tomorrow

Return DVDs next Friday

Call Lizzie at 9am Thursday

Due Date (Alternative Method)

If Smart Add has trouble understanding your due date and/or time when it's entered alongside your task name (for instance, if you're entering due dates in a non-English language), you can use this method to specify your due date separately.

Enter ^ followed by your due date and/or time. You can enter due dates in any of the supported due date formats.

Pick up the milk ^tomorrow

Priority

Enter ! followed by your priority (1, 2, or 3; if you don't specify one, the default is no priority).

List and Tags

Enter # followed by your list or tag name. If you don't already have a list or tag with that name, a new tag will be created.

Order stationery tomorrow #Work

You can include both list and tags with this symbol (make sure you enter a new # before each one).

Order stationery tomorrow #Work #errand

With all of the properties that auto-suggest, you can also type a partial name to see any matches.

Location

Enter @ followed by the location (it must already be set up as a location in Remember The Milk).

Repeat

Enter * followed by how often the task should repeat. In addition to the auto-suggested options, you can enter any supported repeat formats.
