To help you accomplish more of your work faster we've introduced a number of new features and AI capabilities to Dart!

Create Docs in Dart

Now you can make and store documents in Dart, and use AI abilities like 'continue writing' and 'extract action items' to help you with your drafts. This feature, along with our new calendar view, will help teams to keep the full project management journey in Dart.

On the AI front, you can now easily translate text into many different languages through Dart's task descriptions and documents! In addition we've revamped the use of NLP for task creation. Simply typing phrases like "next week" or an assignee's name will fill in those task properties as you go. Try typing /in any text box to see more options!
