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).
Hint: Want to quickly create multiple tasks? Try Planning mode
Whenever you finish a task, or start working on a new one, be sure to update its status. The fastest way to do this is by searching for a task by its title (see Find tasks). If you are looking for a new task to work on, you can ask what to do next by asking for important tasks (see My important tasks).
You can also change the status with one interaction.
Return to planned
Make sure you don’t miss important deadlines by adding due dates to your tasks. To add a due date, first mention the task you want to update. The fastest way to do this is by searching for the task by title (see Find tasks). Then add the date to the task that needs to be completed.
When a new task is created, the assistant automatically selects it, letting you immediately add or change a due date.
Hint: When using the Workstreams voice assistant to set a due date, be sure to only say specific dates, or days of the week.
Correcting a task title can be done on the fly. First, mention the task you want to update. The fastest way to do this is by searching for the task with its current title (see Find tasks). Then change it as shown below.
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.
