Tutorial describes basic principles and advanced features of Taskio Application. It is related to mobile, desktop and web version of Taskio.


Task list

Task list - the basic view represents list of tasks for current tag or folder. Upper left button links to Tags list, upper right button links to Calendar. Blue "+" at the bottom creates a new task. Tap on a task redirects to task detail.

Color coding is following - items with red bubble are already due and should be processed immediatelly (or at least as soon as possible), items with blue bubble are for today and you should pay attention to them. The rest is gray and it's not so important for now (but it will change it's color when the time comes). The number in bubble represents time when the task should be completed or time for how long it is already due.

Multiple swipe gestures are supported - swipe left to reschedule a task, short swipe right to complete a task or long swipe right to delete a task.

Task detail

Display detail of a task. Various attributes may be defined - Reminder, Recurrence, completes a task, opens Edit tags screen for given task, sharing of a task and deleting. When a reminder, recurrence or tag is set, corresponding button is highlighted in green.

Tapping on task's text opens editation. This screen supports both portrait and landscape orientation.


Reminder is a time when you will be reminded on a given task. Contains quick options (like "In 1 hour", "In 4 Hours", "Morning", etc.) which sets the reminder to corresponding time from NOW. There also an option Choose a specific date to fine tune the reminder date.

Date Detection

Date detection determines reminder dates from task text.

For example, if a task text will be "meet Steve on monday morning" then date detection will identify the reminder date as "monday morning" and will convert it to nearest date. After pressing the date detected button, Taskio will setup reminder and clear the date text from task.


Represents calendar view on tasks in given tag or folder.

Desktop calendar

Desktop calendar is a full calendar with multiple views (today, week or month). Every task can be rescheduled by simply drag & drop to desired time and day. Moving task to past is not allowed.

Mobile calendar

Multiple swipe gestures are supported - swipe up or left or right to change month. Tap on a date to display tasks for given date.

Tasks list on the bottom can be manipulated in the same way as the Tasks List - with swipe gestures and tapping.

Task Recurrence

Task recurrence can be choosen from predefined recurrence settings. When a recurring task is completed, then a new task will be scheduled with the reminder set to the nearest recurrence time point.

For example - when task with reminder set to "monday, 1/3/15 at 12:30pm" with "weekly" recurrence will be completed on tuesday, then a new task with reminder "monday, 1/10/2015 at 12:30pm" will be created.


Assign to task

One task can be assigned to multiple tags. Tapping on a tag highlights the tag and assigns task to given tag. Tapping on highlighted (blue) tag removes the tasks from given tag. Tapping on "Add a tag" allow to create a new tag. Each tag must be unique (i.e. duplicate tag names are not allowed).

View tasks with tag

In Tags list select a tag. A badge number on a tag specifies the number of tasks with given tag. Tapping on a tag will display tasks with given tag.

Swiping on a tag allows you to delete or edit given tag.


Each task can have several subtasks. Tap on "Add a subtask" to create new subtask. Tap on the checkmark to complete/uncomplete a subtask.
