How do I create a task in Confluence?




You can add tasks on any page in Confluence. For example, you can add tasks under action items on a meeting notes page, or in a project planning page – anywhere you need a lightweight task management solution.

To create a task:

  1. In the editor, choose the Task list button or use the keyboard shortcut [ ].
  2. Start typing your task – @mention someone to assign the task to them, and type // and choose a due date.

The first person you mention in a task is the assignee. You can even assign tasks to yourself.
