After connecting with Workstreams Voice (see How to talk to Workstreams Voice), it is possible to create a task simply by saying "Create a task." The assistant will respond by asking you for the task title. Reply with the title of your choosing and you will have successfully created the task.
Right after you create a task, you can edit it or update the status (see Update task status).
TIP—Want to quickly create multiple tasks? Try Planning mode
Whenever you start a new task, or finish an old one, you should update its status. Use the phrase “Find (name of task)” to do this (see Find tasks). Once you have located your task, say “change the status.” After being prompted, respond with the name of the new status of your task, such as “planned, in progress,” or “completed.”
Important for Slack users: Currently, Workstreams Voice does not distinguish multiple in-progress steps from one-another. Saying the phrase “in progress” will automatically take your task to the first step after the “planned” column on your taskboard.
You can also change the status with one interaction.
Return to planned
To add a due date, first mention the task you want to update. Use the phrase “Find (name of task)”to do this (see Find tasks). Then add the date to the task that needs to be completed. Be specific by saying the exact day the task is due, with phrases like “Set due date to May 18th” or “Set due date to next Monday.” Hint: When a new task is created, the assistant immediately asks if you want to add a due date to it.
TIP —When using the Workstreams voice assistant to set a due date, be sure to only say specific dates, or days of the week.
To edit a task’s title, just locate your task and then say “change title to (new task title).”
If you want to rapidly create several new tasks with their own titles, just say "Start planning". The Workstreams Voice assistant will then interpret everything that you say as the title of a new task. When you’re done, say "Stop planning".
