Ability to create new lists from the Tasks screen

Would it not be possible to have a tab saying 'new list' or something similar on the Tasks page to create new lists? Seems slightly counter-intuitive to have to go into settings to do this.

Cheers :).

You can email in tasks to have them made into a list, i like that idea as you don't even need to visit RTM.

This is a big barrier for me, I'd love to see this implemented.

I was really happy to find this functionality implemented in the Droid app. I'd love it if it were added to the web app as well.

I agree that it's counterintuitive to bury list management in Settings.

My suggestion for new lists would be something like the way Gmail does its inline new tag creation: under the More Actions... menu, under Move To... add a New List option and pop open a modal dialog for its name.

Also, it would be nice to edit list names inline.

This thread goes back a long way... I'm curious why there hasn't been even so much as a response defending the current implementation.
Vote: Manage lists on the task page.

Yes, it's somewhat awkward to go to the settings every time one needs to manage their lists. And I don't feel that managing lists really even is a setting. I add and delete lists very often (one list per project) and edit/tweak my smart lists quite often, so this would come in handy.

Trying to manage projects (GTD projects) requiers creating / deleting list a lot. I find it painfull to have to go in setting everytimes.

Having to navigate away from the page, and load a total of three pages to add a list is silly,

Maybe have a static tab or a button with a plus sign on it.

I'm with olivier.mathieu. I'm using RTM for GTD. I create and delete lists often. The current list management implementation is the only thing about RTM that is less than perfect.

Anybody know of a grease monkey script that could handle this?

Very confused as to why list creation is buried in the settings.
Needs to be implemented somewhere on the main tasks screen.
