Assign different priorities to tasks

Helpful | Level 5

How to assign different priorities to tasks? Better to be shown in different colors.

Hey @herohuyongtao, I am afraid that currently you cannot set different levels of priority for tasks in Paper. However, you may manually use some sort of tag/marker. For example, you may use ⭐️ rating for your tasks.

Hi there, another trick you can do is place the tasks in a table, with each column being the overall priority, like so:

Note that you’re not able to create proper events in your linked calendar when they’re in a table (if you have connected it in the first place), nor assign tasks to a specific person.
 
This is due to the table format shortening the page, and the general coding which prevents this feature from working.
 
However, it might be suitable for you if all members are already on the doc and are using it as a standard tasklist.
 
Hope this helps!

This helps a little bit. Thanks.

 

However, I do appreciate if Dropbox could offer the exact functionality to make work easier.

Nice workaround. Thanks. I will use this trick before Dropbox offers the exact functionality.

Is there any update on this. It is a pretty valid request.
