Multiple references for a task

Would it be possible to add multiple references for a task? Now you can only add one. With multiple references you could, for instance, add a contact person and a project to a task.

Cheers! Rik

Hi Hersh,

Good question, I think you can use a category field as a checkpoint / list of "done" "to be done" :)

Yes, this way you could link items across workspaces too - for example a task to follow up with someone that is attached to a work project can also show up in a "Follow ups" app you create in your personal workspace. It would be a very useful feature.

+1. Really odd that this functionality isn't already in there considering you can do multiple app, item and workspace references into 1 field in any item?

+1. This would be very beneficial - one reference is simply not enough for most tasks.

This seems an odd omission, please update service to include multiple references, would be great to ref workspaces, contacts & businesses.

Hey guys,

Not on the immediate road map. Though, to link a task to more than one relationship I would warmly recommend to start using a Tasks/Actions app instead. This opens up for more possibilities such as this but also the ability to filter and create useful report for your tasks.
