How do I add simple tasks in Hubstaff without an integration?

In the past we’ve only offered tasks via third party integrations. That said, we’re very excited about our new built-in simple tasks feature which will allow you to create, edit or delete task from the Tasks page and from the desktop app without having to integrate with one of our third-party project management tools.

Simple tasks are only available for projects that are not integrated with a 3rd party integration.

Once a project is linked with an integration the simple tasks become automatically archived. They are still available on reports if any time was tracked on them but they will no longer show up in the Hubstaff application. If a project is unlinked from an integration, then the simple tasks are restored automatically and are once again available for use.
