1. To set the priority of a task. when writing the task, type ! and you will be suggested “quadrants” (Quadrant I and III will show the task in red).
2. To associate a task to a role, when writing the task, type @ and you will be suggested the list of roles.
3. If you put a url in a task, it will be converted to a clickable [link] for you

5. End a task with “…” to show the Edit dialog straight away to enter more details about the task.
