Tasks in Tables

Yep - and vice versa: You cannot embed tables inside other types of text (bulleted lists, other tables a.s.o.).
Looks like this (new) kind of text blocks are allowed only on top level of any nesting rules.
But I'm sure (hope for us all) that there will come up nesting possibilities like in Notion 😉

Very excited about the new tasks feature, and already becoming to depend on it.

However I use a lot of tables to organize information from meetings, sessions etc. which give rise to tasks.

Unfortunately you cannot create a task within a table (alongside the notes/minutes that gave rise to it).

Would be great if tasks could be created within tables.

I have an issue in iOS. when I try to create task inside table in iOS it simply does not respond. I have personal templates for weekly and monthly planner, if i could use tasks inside it then it would be much more effective in scheduling. 

Voted for it.

On this one, the wait is going to be a bit longer I'm afraid - quarters, not months. We certainly recognize the need for this feature, and it is on the roadmap, but it is not as simple to implement as it might seem on the surface.

Its been almost another 2 quarters and still no timeline for implementation?

Well @Jack Lynchhad said "quarters not months" which is more detail than is often available and is the closest you'll get to a timeline. I think it means not before the end of 2023 but that's me reading between the lines.

This is the only reason I don't use tasks.

Before tasks existed I created a 2-column note that stores all my to-dos - one column for work and one column for home. While I would love to switch to tasks , I can't without splitting my to-do into 2 notes or a very long note which I need to scroll.

WE know it will come in several quarters. If this is a key issue for you then you are wise to stick with your alternative way of handling tasks.

I hope EN is willing to change the basic frame. I know it's a complicated update. I knew some softwares which made their basic frame as flexible as possible in order to update the server with the least delay. It was still goofy on some parts but it was VERY fast to hotfix a problem. (If you submit it in the workhours. You will see a hotfix two hours later but this was a game i played a lot. Still the idea behind flexible basic frame is georgeus.) 

Still, task tables are something important but it does not destroy my workflow. I guess my way of handling tasks is making them with timers? such as if i finish a step on my workflow i go to the note, edit the next task and just see that one on my tasks window. It was much more clearer then normal ways. 


Still, just to be prodactive, i am curious of your workflow with EN. (I am new to it and want to learn much more!) and maybe, some people can get tips or tricks on this forum.

EN has switched to a framework based app 2 years ago (actually they made the switch before, but the first clients released in September 2020).

I am pretty sure they will not again switch the underlying framework for the clients in the foreseeable next years.
