5 Steps to implementing Task Management in Obsidian
One of the plugins I use most is Tasks.
I use this to create tasks in my different workflow and help me prioritise tasks.

In this thread, I will explain how I use it with @obsdmd

#obsidianmd #tasks
🧵 👇
1. Creation
Tasks can be added to any note.
All you need to do is type "- [ ]" with your task name, and the prompt will let you set a due date.
2. View tasks
You can create queries to see a list of your tasks.
The queries can have added functionality to filter, sorry, group and limit the results.
I add these queries to my dashboard. I also have a task list note that shows different views of the tasks.
3. Template
I add tasks to my templates so that when the note generates, it will already have a task linked to it.
An example of this is a fleeting note that will have a task created to remind me to review it another day.
4. Tags
One of the things I do is add tags.
I use this to group specific tasks with a similar action so I can complete them all in one go.
Examples of these tags are #calls, #shop or #email
5. Prioritisation
The tasks plugin lets you prioritise your tasks.
Using the query feature, you can filter out tasks by priority.
That's a wrap!

Cards are rectangular shapes that you can add to a Canvas.
You can change the outline colour.
At the moment, you can not change the shape of the card. Image
2. Add a note from Vault
You can add a note from your vault onto the canvas
It shows the title and content of the note.
