5 Oct, 2023 | Read in 3 minutes

Check out the latest in VirtualSpace Web! Now, effortlessly turn your messages into tasks for a smoother workflow. Discover simplicity in productivity here!


When you wish to generate a task based on the content of a message for efficient task management, there's no need to input all the details again. Instead, simply click on the message and access the “Add as Task” section within your chat message.

But that's not all! We've recently introduced some exciting new features to enhance your task management experience. Now, you can duplicate the message's contents, excluding attachments, directly into the body of a new task. This means you're not just saving time; you're taking your efficiency to the next level.

Creating a task like this is akin to starting over but without the hassle of retyping the same information. The message bits fit smoothly into the new task, allowing you to concentrate on what's truly important.

And, of course, like any task, you still have the flexibility to set a due date, add a reminder, or assign it to team members.

New Features:

1. Turn Messages into Tasks

Now, you can turn messages into tasks with just one click. It's super easy and helps you keep track of important stuff without any hassle.

2. Focus on the Task Name

When you create a task, VirtualSpace Web now makes things simpler by automatically putting your cursor in the task name box. No more extra clicks – it's all about saving your time.
