This feature is not available on Android yet. 🤖


Drag and drop is a powerful feature, which helps you to organize your day. You can drag any task by tapping and holding it until it pops out. Then you can move it around the app and drop it in a supported place. Structured will display a preview, while dragging the task around to make sure you know where it’s going to be dropped.


Move Tasks in Your Timeline

When your plans change, you can easily drag a task to a new time slot or day. While dragging, a little preview will show at which time the task will be dropped. By dragging a task to the top of your timeline, you can also make the task an all-day task.

You can do the same the other way around, if you want to give an all-day task a specific time. If you have multiple all-day tasks, you can use drag & drop to reorder them.

By dropping a task onto a day in the week overview, it will automatically get moved to that day, while the time stays the same. You can also hover above the day for a few seconds, and it will automatically switch to that day. That way, you can drop it into a free time slot of your choice.


Reorganize Your Inbox

You can also use drag and drop to easily reorganize your inbox. Simply drag the most important or urgent tasks to the top, while leaving the insignificant ones at the lower end. When you have completed a task, drag it to the bottom part of your inbox, and it will automatically be checked off.


Move Tasks Between Timeline and Inbox

When you do not manage to finish a task, it’s a good idea to put it back into the inbox and reschedule it later. With drag and drop, you can easily do this by dropping the task onto the inbox icon. By hovering over the icon for a few seconds it will automatically be opened and you can drop the task at a specific place in your inbox.

When you have found a time at which you want to accomplish a task from your inbox, you can use drag and drop to move a task from your inbox into your timeline. Simply tap and hold a task, and then drag it over the little arrow in the upper-left corner to close the inbox. Now you can move the task to any open slot on your timeline.


Create Tasks

You can also drag the plus sign to create a task at a specific time. Just drop it somewhere on your timeline and the task creation screen will pop up with that time preselected. You can also drag an email or webpage into Structured, and it will automatically create a task for it and link it in the notes field.
