No one can anticipate every change that comes in the future. You can quickly and easily move your task(s) in the tree list or to other projects to adapt to any change.
You can move a task or multiple tasks by dragging them up/down to rearrange their order or left/right to adjust their subtask level.
You can also drag and drop task(s) in the sidebar to transfer them to another project.
In a filtered view, you can even drag and drop task(s) to reassign an assignee or multiple assignees, a priority, and a due date.
When in a filtered view (Group by or Sort by) or in the Board view, you are unable to set a task as another task’s subtask by dragging and dropping or cutting and pasting it.
However, you can click on the ⋯ icon in the detail panel and select Make a subtask of… to set the task as another task’s subtask.
Or you can right-click on a task and select Make a subtask of… in More.
Tip: Hit Alt + P (or Ctrl + P for Mac ) to move a task as a subtask of another task using the keyboard.
You may have projects with similar tasks. Quire lets you duplicate a task, so you can use it as a template for your new tasks.
To duplicate a task, click on the ⋯ icon in the detail panel and select Duplicate this task.
You can also duplicate a task by right-clicking on the task and selecting Duplicate in the context menu.
Or much more easier , simply press Ctrl (⌘ for Mac) + C to copy and then Ctrl + V to paste it anywhere you like. Of course, right clicking on the task will also bring up a context menu for copy and paste.
Note: When copying a task, the comments of the original task won’t be copied.
You may have tasks belonging to the wrong project. You can transfer (aka move) them to a different project.
Click on the ⋯ icon in the detail panel and select Transfer this task.
Then choose the project to which the task belongs.
You can also transfer a task or more by right-clicking on them and selecting Transfer to in the context menu.
Tip: To quickly transfer tasks to another project, hold down the Alt key and drag the tasks to the project name at the sidebar.
Another quick way to transfer a task is by hitting > on the keyboard when the task(s) is selected and using the arrow key to choose which project you want to transfer the task to.
When you have the same tasks, you can merge one into another.
Click on the ⋯ icon in the detail panel and select Merge this task.
Next, type in the name or the ID of the task you want to merge with and click Merge.
This duplicate task will close and all of its favorites and followers will be added to the task you’ve selected.
Note: Assignees and attachments from the duplicate task won’t be copied over.
