Follow the steps below to install Tasks.

  1. Search for “Tasks” in Obsidian’s community plugins browser
  2. Enable the plugin in your Obsidian settings (find “Tasks” under “Community plugins”).
  3. Check the settings. It makes sense to set the global filter early on (if you want one).
  4. Replace the “Toggle Checkbox Status” hotkey with “Tasks: Toggle Done”.
    • I recommend you remove the original toggle checkbox hotkey and set the “Tasks” toggle to Ctrl + Enter (or Cmd + Enter on a mac).
  5. Optional: bind a hotkey to the command Tasks: Create or edit to have quick access to the Tasks modal.
