ability to add items directly to "my work"

Currently there is no intuitive way to have a fully functional to-do list in Monday - meaning a single place where all your tasks that are assigned to you show up AND you also have the ability to add tasks directly to the list. “My Work” fulfills half of this, but it does not allow you to add a task on a whim. Tasks are sometimes spontaneous or do not correlate directly to a projects work flow, and being able to add them in a way to the “my work” section, without having to specify a project to add it to, would prevent me from having to use a separate to do list outside of monday (which currently is very annoying).

Exactly! This would go perfect with our Calendar suggestion.
