1. A computer-implemented method for initiating actions associated with task items, comprising:

  • at an electronic device with a processor and memory storing instructions for execution by the processor;

    receiving, from a user, input including one or more of voice input and text input;

    extracting, by the processor, one or more attributes for a task based on the input;

    generating a task item for the task based on the input and the one or more attributes;

    determining, based on the input and the one or more attributes, a plurality of candidate actions to be associated with the task item;

    determining context data, wherein the context data includes data displayed or processed by the device within a threshold time period relative to a time the input from the user was received by the device;

    selecting a subset of actions from the plurality of candidate actions based on the context data;

    modifying at least one action of the subset of actions based on one or more of the context data, the input, and the one or more attributes;

    generating an activation region for performing, by the device, the subset of actions;

    displaying, in a task list, the task item including the activation region;

    receiving a user selection of the activation region; and

    performing, by the device, the subset of actions in response to receiving the user selection of the activation region, wherein performing the subset of actions at least partially completes the task.
