Task forms 2.0 🔆

Task forms have gotten a glow-up, and are now question-based forms 🔆

New supported features include:

  • Add a description to forms
  • Mark questions as optional or required
  • Set an icon & color for forms
  • Add predetermined attributes and auto-created subtasks to forms
  • Archive (and restore!) forms

Add a button to a relevant task form right from a list view

With customizable toolbars, add task form buttons directly to your lists to make it easy for people to file bug reports, requests, and any other type of task 💫

Discord integration

Connect your Discord workspace to enable your team to work across Discord & Height. The Height bot can join public channels to do things like:

  • See task previews in Discord when you post a URL or unique task ID and message previews in Height when you post a Discord permalink.
  • Create new tasks directly from Discord slash commands.
  • Automatically cross-post messages mentioning a task from Discord to Height.

Filter by parent tasks

Looking for a specific subset of subtasks? You can now use “Parent task” as an option whenever filtering tasks.
