Note: You can also display this dialog by selecting one or more tasks, right-clicking, and selecting Other Task Attributes > SetTask Icon from the popup menu.
There are a few ways to assign an icon to a specific task.
The easiest way is simply to click the icon field for a task. If the Icon is set to display (see Attribute Visibility Page) the icon is in the grid. Otherwise the icon is to the left of the task name. Clicking the icon immediately opens the Select Task Icon dialog.
Each icon has an “icon index”, an associated number which is stored in the task list. Built-in icons are indexed 0 through (currently) 106+. If you sort your task list by the icon index in the Sort Menu, this is the number that is used.
Simply double-click an icon to assign the icon to a task. Or single-click to select and then click OK.
Once an icon is assigned to a task, to remove an icon use Other Task Attributes > Clear Task Icon.
You can assign each icon your own custom name by selecting the icon and clicking the Edit Label button. For example, select icon 12 and change the name to “coffee”. Now when sorting by the icon index it will use that name rather than the number. In addition to tags and categories, this is yet another option to help organize your tasks.
