3. Task templates

Task templates can be greatly handy and the team has now made the process of scanning through your templates a cakewalk. Templates can now be seen in the sidebar, which enables you to filter them at a rapid pace. Secondly, each template has its own dedicated page, indicating that you can share the url with an individual template. Instead of loading unwanted templates, head to the individual task list template directly.

4. Addition of mentions to project roles

You can now mention many people at once in a conversation based on the part they are playing on a project. However, you need to set up the roles before using this feature. Type the role name after ‘@’. The image below shows clearly on how to use the mentions feature.

5. Indent and outdent sub-tasks

Teamwork now allows you to organize your work effortlessly with its new feature called indent and outdent sub-tasks. For instance, if you want to build a huge task list for a brand new site, you can create a flat list instead of wasting time building tasks and sub-tasks. Hover your cursor to the name of the task and click on ‘Tab’. On doing so, the sub-task indents automatically.
