Create a label
Labels let you group tasks together in ways that make sense for your workflow. For example, sometimes you only want to see the tasks you have to work on at night, other times you may want to only look at tasks you can do at home.
Let’s say you wanted to keep track of nighttime tasks. Create a label called “Night” by typing @Night into the task field when adding a new task. You’ll see the option to create a new label in the drop-down menu.
Add labels to your tasks
Using the example from above, for every task that you have to do at night, add the label @Night by typing it into the task name.
You can also add a label to an already existing task, by opening the task's task view and tapping the Label chip if you're using Todoist on your phone, or by clicking Labels in the right-hand side if you're on your computer.
View all labelled tasks
You can find a full list of your labels by accessing the Filters & Labels view (this will be located right under your Upcoming view) in the navigation pane. Once you've opened this view, scroll down to Labels. Select any label you want to get a full list of all tasks with that assigned label.
Different ways of using labels
There are endless ways to use labels. Here are a few examples to inspire you:
How long will your tasks take to complete?
When do you want to work on this task?
- @waiting (if you’re waiting for something to happen before you can start)
What type of work are you doing?
How much progress have you made with this task?
Is this a home project, a personal project or a work project?
Where do you want to work on this task?
