is there a way to create a Task in two Lists at thee same time?

I often create Tasks that logically belong to two Lists. Can I select more than one List and have it show up in both? Anybody else care?

I believe you can only have a task in 1 list at a time, however, you can have it in as many Smart Lists as it applies using lists, tags, locations, or other properties.

Here's a link explaining Smart Lists:

Hi baysailor,
As geojono said, tasks can only be in one list, but other properties can be added—and tags can be added in multiple.

I think an example may help you and my first thought is this post on GTD, where tags are used for contexts and you can add multiple tags to "assign" a task to multiple contexts.

However, I'm not sure if that's too specific and tangential for you. 😅 If it's easier feel free to share an example of a task that belongs in multiple lists and I can share some ideas about how you can accomplish that! 💙
