Experience the Smart Bot (English only)

One innovative feature of CloudTasks is the ability to create tasks using natural language. This saves a lot of time and can help you accomplish even more. Tasks can be entered by voice or by manually typing them in. Smart bot will interpret your request, fill out all of the necessary fields such as due date and time, and submit your task to the inbox. To get you started, here are some examples:

"Lunch with Martin tomorrow at 1 pm”

“Take out the trash every Sunday at 5 pm”

“Book holiday on July 30th at 3 pm”

Smart bot can understand due dates, times and recurring tasks.

Want a better overview of what needs to be done? Reordering lists in CloudTasks is easy. 

The drawer shows you all of your lists, as well as the total number of tasks and uncompleted to-dos (in red) for each. Use the anchor to rearrange these lists by drag and drop. Simple! 


 

Set up recurring tasks (PRO only)

A recurring task can help you remember – automatically – something that needs to be repeated at specific intervals. This can be taking out the trash, sending a birthday card or calling a friend.

Recurring tasks may be minutely, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly or yearly.

When you set a task to recur, the next task in the series will only show up once the first has been completed. If the first isn’t checked off, it will be rolled over and no subsequent task will be created. This thoughtful solution makes sure your overview is not cluttered by multiple instances of the same task. Clarity is key! 


Call on your contacts (PRO only)

When it comes to organizing time with friends, family and colleagues, having contact information at hand can save a lot of time. By becoming a PRO user of CloudTasks, your contacts will be autocompleted when you enter a to-do, making it easier than ever to accomplish things.

Simply start typing a person's name into the title field and tap on it when it shows. CloudTasks will then add their details - such as email address and phone number - to the Notes field for quick action. 


Add attachments to your tasks (PRO only)

Need to remember something important about your tasks? Now it’s easy. Just attach the files you want.

1.     Tap the paperclip icon when you create or edit a task.

2.     Attach a file from your device, Google Drive or Dropbox. Or you can take a picture or record audio.

3.     You can share attachments via email without having to share the entire task. If you share Dropbox files the other party will receive a link to your file. If you share a voice recording, photo or other file from your device the other party will receive the file.
