Users can instantly create a task from a note.
  • Swipe any line, bulleted item, or numbered item (1) in the note.
  • Or tap a line or highlight some text, and then tap Blue check mark (2) in the toolbar.
The line, item, or highlighted text automatically becomes the subject of a new task, and the task is related to the note. Users can click Blue check mark (3) in the related records area to view related tasks and mark those tasks complete. Users can also work with these tasks from their task list.
