In Lunatask, you currently don’t manually order your tasks. Instead, we built our task list around the Personal Kanban methodology and the concept of calculated “urgency”. We have a dedicated article explaining how our task lists work and why.
There are three ways how to change task status. Either using the picker in task detail, using the right-click context menu, or using
Shift+Arrow Right and
Shift+Arrow Left keyboard shortcuts.
Lunatask highlights in bold the task it thinks you should work on next. You can disable this in settings.
The clue is in our naming of lists, we call them areas of life. When you have too many lists, you can't prioritize the tasks across them. If two tasks compete for one portion of your time, they should usually live on the same list. Start with two areas (for example, personal and work-related tasks) and add new ones once you are sure you need them.
We believe that one can focus only on one area of his life at a time. When at work, you want to focus on work-related tasks and avoid being distracted by your personal tasks.
Lunatask implements subtasks via checklists in task descriptions. With this approach, you can give any structure to your subtasks, including nested them.
Double-click the section name to collapse the section. We often do this to hide tasks in
Later after you plan the tasks to work on
Hover over the section name, and the sum of estimates of all tasks in the section will show.
Alt while performing the double-click on a specific day.
Yes, use browser bookmarklet for that.
Absolutely! Adding the generated email address to BCC, you reply to the person who wrote you while saving the conversation as a task in Lunatask at the same time. And by using BCC, the person you're replying to won't even know
Open the area settings either by clicking the settings icon in the bottom toolbar in task lists (the one right next to the icons to toggle the calendar and quick note sidebars) or by right-clicking the area icon in the main menu on the left. Then, scroll down below the icon picker and the option to set up email forwarding.
Yes, use Quick Add for that.
Yes! Mobile apps for iOS/Android are currently in development, and will still take some time to finish. However, from time to time, we add more users to beta testing of what we have built so far. Sign up to join the beta here.
Unfortunately, our editor does not yet support all common formatting (like embedded images or tables). Therefore, we did not opt to build import options yet, as we would need to strip unsupported formatting, and some information would be lost. But, once we add support for the remaining formatting, we will also allow importing data from other apps.
Send us a message, tell us what videoconference tool you are using, and we'll add support for it.
We have an article documenting authorization flows depending on how your organization account with Microsoft is set up. The article is also meant to be shared with organization administrators and guides them on how to approve the integration.
It happens on Windows when scale/zoom is set to other value than 100% in display settings on your system. Unfortunately, it’s a known issue in the technology we use to build Lunatask without a known workaround. We check from time to time if a solution pops up, but no luck so far. So if this is a problem for you, consider setting your display scale/zoom to 100% for the time being.
Yes, the installer downloaded from the website will work just fine on Windows 10 and 11.
Your master password is like a key to the vault. If the key is lost, there's no way to get into the vault. The only solution in case of a forgotten password is resetting your account since we keep no backdoor to your encrypted data. This way, you can set up a new master password, but you'll lose your existing data in your account. Please, contact us and we'll promptly reset your account if needed.
Unfortunately, Apple does not allow canceling subscriptions directly in the app. Instead, subscriptions purchased via an In-App Purchase have to be canceled in iTunes or Mac App Store settings. For the exact steps, please, see Apple's documentation.
The subscription will be canceled automatically for subscriptions made outside of the Mac App Store (via Paddle). For iTunes subscriptions, you must manually cancel your subscription in iTunes or Mac App Store settings.
Far from it. Lunatask is in active development, and we're adding new features every month. We are only halfway there to realizing our vision. You can find the list of some of the planned features on our Idea Portal.
The top-priority features on our to-do list are mobile apps, embedding images and file attachments in notes and journal entries, support for tables in the editor, showing more days in the calendar, time tracking, and data imports from other apps.
Feel free to reach out. We're always happy to help!
