Create a sub-project in Todoist

Available for:
Personal projects only can be turned into parent or sub-projects.

Keep your ever-growing project list neat and organized with sub-projects. For example, you might create “parent” projects called “Home” and “Health” and then organize various sub-projects underneath each one.

Turn a project into a sub-project

Todoist currently supports sub-projects on three indent levels. To turn a project into a sub-project:

  1. Hover over a project.
  2. Drag the project to the left or right to change its indent level.
  1. Long press on any project.
  2. Drag and drop it to the right or left to change its indent level.
  1. At the bottom of your project list, tap Manage Projects.
  2. At the top-right, tap the pencil icon.
  3. Drag and drop any project to the right or left to change its indent level.
