Refer to Tasks/Projects

Referring to one task in another is a great way to link tasks together in your project.

Only if the task was referenced in another task’s description or comment, the task referral log will appear in the task detail panel.

Refer to tasks

You can refer to a task from the same project by typing #task name or #task ID number in the description or comment.

If you want to refer to tasks from a different project, type in #{project ID/task ID} or copy and paste the entire URL of that task.

Note: In this case, you need to wrap the project ID/task ID with curly brackets { } for the system to recognize it as a reference.

When the referred task is completed, the #taskname shown in the description or comment will be crossed off automatically. If the referred task is deleted or transferred to another project, the #taskname shown in the description will not update automatically.

You can refer to a project by simply typing #{project ID} in the description or comment.


  • You will be able to find the project ID at the URL. It’s the characters between w/ and /.
