Adding and completing tasks is the foundation of Any.do! Adding tasks can be done from a few different locations on each platform, or even just by using your voice. You may also choose to add tasks via any of our Integrations or even email them directly from your inbox. To email your tasks, use the same email address as your Any.do’s account and send you tasks to do@any.do. Your subject line will become the task’s title, while the email’s body will become the notes.

Editing tasks is just a simple! To move a task between categories or lists, it’s as simple as dragging and dropping it to your preferred location. To edit its details, just tap on it and start making changes. You’ll be able to edit its reminders, collaborators, notes, attachments, and more! Task titles can also be edited quickly from the main Task View or by opening the task itself.

When it comes to completing tasks, this can be easily done by swiping an item or using the checkboxes available in both our Task and Calendar views. These tasks can be left pending in your Task View and reactivated when needed (by hitting the checkbox) or deleted to clear them from your lists. There is even a “Shake” feature which allows you to clear all completed tasks by shaking your device. The swiped tasks will then go to your Completed Tasks folder from which you may permanently delete them or retrieve them when needed.
