A few topics covered in this quick start guide:

Hierarchy within Motion

This is an overview of Motion's hierarchy for organizing your projects and tasks. From the smallest unit to the largest unit:

  • Subtasks can be nested within a task. You can check them off as complete but they don't get added separately to your calendar.

  • Tasks are scheduled onto your main calendar.

  • Projects are a collection of related tasks.

  • Workspaces are a collection of projects. If you are on a team plan this is where you set read/write permissions.

Workspace Examples in Practice

These are real-life examples from Motion users who have organized their workspaces.
