Ubuntu Tasks – Categories!

Today I’ve added another major feature to Ubuntu Tasks – categories!

Categories are basically individual lists of tasks. As you can see in the screenshots below, they can be used to represent anything – projects, homeschool subjects, you name it! You can either assign a category when creating the task, or move the task to a different category from the task view, which now shows the category in the header.

Along with categories, I’ve also added another very useful feature – the ability to add tasks directly from the task list, without having to worry about due date, priority, etc.

Over the next few days, I plan on refining the way categories work. I’d like to make it so you can create categories separately, without having to create a task with a new category. I’d also like to make categories permanent, so they last even after all the tasks in the category get deleted.

Any feedback or suggestions would be highly appreciated!
