Automatically add #todo tag to each task

Hi.
I’m trying to find out if there is a way to automatically add a tag (#todo) to each task as it is created. I’m using Task Collector plugin to remove the tag when marked completed but can’t find a way to add it when it is created.

Sorry to bump this but does anyone know a way to automatically add a tag when a task is created?

Templater can help. GitHub - SilentVoid13/Templater: A template plugin for obsidian
You can make a template with this:

- [ ] #todo 

and then just execute it whenever you need a task

Thanks! I’ll give it a try.

if u want sth that doesnt disrupt the flow, u should explore Text Snippets plugin (obsidian://show-plugin?id=text-snippets-obsidian). u can set it to add - [ ] #todo when u simply type [ ]. templater can do that but u have to execute/run it

Thanks - I’ll try that as well!
