  • Task assigned to me
  • Personal tasks

Personal Tasks

  • A personal task is a task that doesn’t belong to any project. Rather, it belongs to someone’s My Tasks.
  • A private task can have subtasks and all subtasks are private. If a project is archived or removed, all of its tasks won’t be part of the My Tasks of any user.
  • You cannot assign your personal tasks to other users. You can only select yourself as the assignee.
  • You cannot create an external team for personal tasks.
  • You cannot create global tags for personal tasks. The tag for personal tasks is only visible in My Tasks.
