Quickly Attach a File to a Task

Posted

We’re always looking at ways to speed up your daily use of TeamworkPM and take some of the pain points out of common actions. This month we’ve added a very handy shortcut for attaching files to a task that has already been created.

Normally what would happen is that people would create a task and then as an afterthought think, “shoot I really should attach a file to this task to give it more meaning“. Before you would have to edit the task, click the Files tab, attach your files and then hit Save.

As of today, we have a number of ways to make this faster. Mouse over the task and then hit ‘F’ on your keyboard. This will bring up a handy dialog which gives you the option of attaching a file to the task nice and fast.

How handy is that!

Now if you’re not a fan of keyboard shortcut, or if you can never remember the key to press, we have also added this quick add option to the Task Options menu on the left of each task. Mouse over the task, hit the arrow at the front of the task to toggle the menu and then select the option “Attach files…”. The same quick add menu will then appear. Now just upload or pick your file and you’re done.

Another pain point of attaching files to tasks was from the View Task page. Again, you’d have to edit the task, click the Files tab, select your file and save the task. We’ve added a link on this page to bring up the same quick add files dialog right from the View Task page.
