You can check the option “Plan today” in the “New task default parameters” section of the project settings.

Plan day task

This option allows you to automatically schedule a new task on the day it is created.

Using this configuration, the task is scheduled as soon as it is created in the Gantt chart of the “When” view of the project in question.


Assign the creator to the task by default

You can assign a task to its creator when the task is created by checking the relevant box.

Assign task creator

This configuration allows you to automatically add the member who created the task on the “Who” tab of the task.


Setting default reminders

You can set a default reminder rule for the tasks created in the project.

These reminders, as well as those defined at task level, can concern either all task members (Who tab), or only yourself, even if you are not working on the task:
