Add your own descriptions or ask Brick AI to dig up the big Why behind your goal or any task in your project.

Hey friend,

This is Nikita from Brick.

Big news: You can now add descriptions to your tasks in Brick. Yay. We're excited, maybe you should be, too. Btw, it has AI!1! Double yay, right? Okay, whatever, bye.

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

I know you love some good ol' 'AI for the sake of AI'.

And this is how we could go about it but we didn't want to half-ass it, just add a text field for you and call it a day (and a Feature). Where's the fun (and value) in that?

Here's what's actually going on:

• There's now a second tab under every brick (task) in your project. So you have 2 options: break it down, or add a note (description).

• If you don't feel like typing it all on your own (or thinking too much), smash "Ask AI", and it'll give you its take. If you like it, just tap Append and it'll be added to your brick.

• That's where it gets interesting. Brick AI got an additional mission here.

It doesn't just describe the task, but answers the question: "Is this task important at all for the goal?" It doesn't just strive to add context but helps you stay on track and get to your goal ASAP.

And if the answer to that question is no, well, you asked for it.

It'll give a bit of tough love that you deserve. Hint: don't waste your time on this task.

Hope this can save you time and heartache.

​The update (+ a bunch of smaller improvements) is available on the app stores right now.​ AI descriptions are available on all paid plans without limits.
