Scheduling your tasks helps you get a realistic plan of action to complete your tasks. However, if your task list is very long, you shouldn’t schedule all your tasks. Instead, you should decide what is in your current focus and then schedule only those.

The focus view available from the left menu gives you a list of all tasks or projects in your current focus. The grouping by this week and next week is based on the planned time frame for each item. This list excludes the scheduled recurring tasks. To see the list of recurring tasks, use the filter next to the areas.

To add new tasks or projects to the focus, you can browse through your projects and cherry pick the ones you’d like to add to your focus. To cherry pick a task or project, you can just click on the focus icon.

Then, go to the focus view, and you’ll see the newly added items there. Here you can plan them for a specific time frame.
