How to add a task description

Adding a description to a task is a great way to provide information about a task, ensuring clear objectives for your assignee(s.)

To add a task description:

  • Click on a task in the web app to open the task details screen.
  • Click on the description box where it says "Click to enter description."

  • Enter your description.  You can use various formatting, such as ordered lists, bullet points, code, or headings using ## and ###.

  • Click "Save" to save your description.  Your changes will also auto-save when you mouse-click outside of the description box.  


  • To edit the description, click on it and make any changes, then click save.
