The Todoist calendar feed sets up a one-way sync from Todoist to any calendar app that supports calendar feed subscriptions. You can see all your scheduled Todoist tasks inside your favorite calendar app.

With one-way sync, changes made in Todoist will appear in the calendar, but changes made in the calendar won’t sync to Todoist.

When a Todoist calendar feed is added to the calendar:

  • Tasks in personal projects or shared projects where you're a collaborator will appear. 
  • Tasks with a due date will appear as all-day events.
  • Tasks with a due date and due time will appear as one-hour events.
  • Tasks with a due date and task duration will appear as events with the same duration.
