Introducing New Task View: May 24 ✨


Smarter, bigger, faster, longer… Not how the song goes exactly, but precisely what you’ll find with the launch of the all-new task view! 🥳 If you value hyper-speed task navigation, beautiful design, and accessibility as a core function, you’re in for a treat.

The Todoist team has taken years of feedback and spent months perfecting every pixel to bring this task view to life. A special shout-out also goes to the Experimentalist community, whose road testing has been fundamental to developing this feature.

In fact, there are so many updates to obsess over that there is an entire blog post published to walk you through it. So settle in, and let Alex show you all the details.

If you dream a little dream of being part of the Doist team (and are better at writing accidental rhymes than that rubbish)... We’re hiring!

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Small visual improvements to keep Todoist looking polished.
  • On iOS, you can now end those repeat tasks quicker by long pressing your task until the menu pops up, then selecting ‘Complete Forever’. A quick reminder that you can also do this on all devices from the three dots icon on your task. Oh, the satisfaction! 😌
  • Typing !! on web will now bring up the priority dropdown, just like all other platforms.
  • You can now strikethrough text on Android Wear by putting ~~ on either side of the word you’d like to strikethrough.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • If you moved a task from Upcoming/Today view to another project, then removed the due date, you may have experienced a crash. It’s a niche bug, but niche or not, it’s fixed.
  • When you react to comments with an emoji, your view will now stay put instead of an unsolicited scroll to the top.
  • When editing a task due date, if your scheduler went a little wonky, that won’t happen anymore.

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • Dragging a subtask outside of the "Task Details" into a board no longer crashes the app. Phew!

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • On Android Wear, if a task has a scheduled time, that time will now show under the task. Handy to have this, especially on your watch, no?

Little Flourishes and Keeping Bugs at Bay: May 11


Once in a while, it’s nice to switch focus from battling bugs and working on new features (🤫) to add a little flourish or two.

In Upcoming view on your desktop or browser, when you hover over a date in the future, you’ll see a tooltip showcasing the number of tasks due that day. You’ll also see a bar showcasing the colors of the projects you’re working on. Consider it your rainbow of future productivity! 🌈

There are also some exciting updates on Todoist Experimentalists! To learn more about that magic, visit the dedicated Experimentalists Features page. 🧙

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Sorting tasks just got quicker! You can now drag tasks into both your Inbox and your favorited projects.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • Adding a project as a board view will stay as a board view. No more switching to list view nonsense.
  • Quick Add crashing when adding a new section to a new project is a thing of the past!
  • Todoist will once again recognize “no date” and “no due date” to mean exactly what they say.
  • Safari got lonely for a minute. When typing @, you’ll now see a list of your collaborators rather than an empty box.
  • If you tried opening comments on an archived project and hit a blank page, that won’t happen anymore.
  • You can discard your settings changes with reckless abandon again. Todoist won’t freeze in fear. Promise.
  • You can select the three dots icon on a completed task once again. No errors will show. Hopefully.

  • When using VoiceOver, your number of tasks in Inbox and Today View is now accurate.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Crashes on Android 7, widget functions, and reminders settings have been fixed. Crashes are annoying for all (Todoist developers included), so everyone can be happy they’re gone.
  • When you changed your avatar image, it’s probably because you wanted to change your avatar image, not have it stay the same. So that’s working as expected now.

Garden Friendly Bug Squashing: Apr 13


While it’s fun to share about fancy new features, sometimes, like hedges, trees and lawns, it’s all about the maintenance. And while there has been a ton of bug squashing going on at Todoist, please don’t apply that same logic to your horticulture. Let that ecosystem thrive. 🌸🐝🐞

Spring Clean Your Todoist: Mar 30


Deleting tasks is an integral part of managing a healthy to-do list, and it’s now easier than ever with Todoist’s new swipe to delete action on mobile.

Whether some tasks are outdated, unlikely to be completed, or just don’t serve you anymore, the relief and clarity you can feel from deleting those redundant tasks are second to none. 😌 Of course, capturing tasks as soon as they pop into your head is a great thing, but reviewing your Todoist and keeping everything ship-shape and actionable is where the magic happens. ✨

You have complete control over your mobile swipe actions and can choose to either swipe left or right to select, complete, schedule or now… delete! Just go to Settings > General > Swipe Actions to set your preference.


There have been lots of updates for Todoist Experimentalists too. To keep on top of that magic, visit the dedicated Experimentalists Features page. 🧪

Experiment in progress: Mar 9


Todoist Experimentalists are currently testing out a new task view. Lately, there have been quantum leaps in bringing this updated task view to life. To see what all the fuss is about (and be among the first to access other test features), simply enable experimental features.

As for Todoist in general, spring cleaning has commenced (bugs begone!), and a few tweaks and improvements have everything feeling fresh. ✨

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Creating a project offline was a bit buggy. That’s fixed, so your projects will sync flawlessly offline and online.

New in 2022: Feb 1

Getting focused for February? Well, that’s easier than ever with a heap of updates created to bring you more joy (hello reactions 🤩) and speed (like easy-to-learn keyboard shortcuts).

Comments: leveled up 🎮

Mention your collaborators in comments by typing @ and their name!

Commenting on tasks and projects keeps things moving forward with family, colleagues, and peers. Now you can keep everyone in the loop with new @mentions and a hyper intuitive notify field. Just start typing a collaborator’s name and select the person you want to ping!

The fun part? You can now also add every single emoji reaction to comments. Use this expanded power to acknowledge 👀, vote ✔️, celebrate 🎉, or thank 🙏🏻 your team.

Shortcut magic 🧞

Smooth, efficient, and — dare we say it — magical. That’s how you’ll feel when using the 39 new keyboard shortcuts. Add tasks, switch views, and open settings with just your fingertips.

Discover (and learn) every last shortcut with the all-new command menu. Hit K (macOS) or Ctrl K (Windows). Managing your tasks now feels like magic. 🔮

“Whatever you want to do in Todoist, there's probably a shortcut for it,” says Todoist Product Designer Alex. “And we couldn't have created the command menu without the help of our Todoist experimentalists, who shaped this feature with their feedback.”

All-new views 👓

Find all your labels and filters in the view directly below Upcoming view.

Filters and labels give you control over how to view your tasks. You’ll now find them together in the main navigation menu, just after Upcoming. Favorite your filters to make finding them even speedier.

Views got an upgrade, too: Once in a project, you can now sort your tasks exactly how you like them with a single click of View. Naomi, the Todoist copywriter, uses the new option to group her tasks by priority to make sure she’s tackling what’s most important first. ✅


Super-smart Apple 🍎

Turn handwritten text into tasks by using the scan button in Quick Add on your iOS device.

Turn a scribbled note into a neat, organized task or description in Todoist. Simply use the scan button for Quick Add (it works with any other Live Text, too).

Plus, you can now copy and paste multiple tasks on the go. Turn ingredients lists from recipes into a shopping list on your way to the store. Or be like Todoist iOS Developer Carrasco and use it to gather all software bug reports into an Issues & Improvements project.

Award-winning Android 🏆

Hold down the menu icon to quickly switch between views on your Android device.

Navigating Todoist in Android just got faster. Hold down the menu icon to bring up Inbox, Today, and Upcoming, followed by your favorites or five recently opened views. Perfect for finding what you need on the go or taking a glance at your schedule, all in one super-swift action.

And don't forget to follow Todoist on Twitter. Did you see that the Android team won the 2021 Material Design Award?!

Comments upgrade: Jan 19

Mention anyone directly inside a comment by simply typing @ and then their name!

Working on projects with colleagues, fellow students, or family members just got a whole lot easier. Discuss the finer details of any task — or even the whole shared project — now that comments let you get your team’s attention, quickly notify the right people, and add reactions. Plus, the entire comments tab now looks a little more modern.

  • Directly ping teammates inside comments with new @mentions*
  • Start typing a name inside your notify field and Todoist will quickly fill in the rest
  • React to comments with every emoji in the books 📚

*You can still use @ before your labels when you’re adding or editing the task itself.

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Turn tasks into sub-tasks (or sub-tasks into tasks) with your keyboard. Inside your project, use your arrows to focus on the task. Increase the indent of that task with . Decrease that indent with .

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • You’ll no longer be able to set reminders without a time. That just defeats the purpose!

🐛 Minus Android bugs

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

Filters & Labels view: Jan 11

Find Filters and Labels view in your left-hand navigation.

Stop searching for filters and labels — now you’ll find them all in a single spot in your navigation menu! This not only clears up the clutter of your menu but also allows you to quickly scan one view to find what you're looking for.

Why filters and labels? They both let you sort your tasks so getting things checked off feels effortless.

Filters let you save your task searches so you can find exactly what you need in seconds — like all priority 1 work-related tasks due Monday. Labels, on the other hand, let you group similar tasks together, like every email you need to send or all tasks that take 15 minutes.

Customize your bottom app bar on Android

Customize your Android bottom bar and navigation in your Todoist settings.

Make your Todoist feel more like you by changing the location of your dynamic add button — you can choose to keep it in the center, move it to the right, or move it to the left. And there’s more: You can also change the order of the menu, search, and notification buttons. All this is available by going to Todoist settings then selecting Bottom app bar. Learn more.

Automatic Dark Mode for macOS

While ticking off task after task in Todoist can be a bright spot in your day, it shouldn't be glaring! Give your eyes a break with Dark Mode. Todoist now auto-switches between dark and light mode to match the rest of your macOS.

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Add a task on your desktop, see a little message at the bottom of your screen. Now you can open the task you just added directly from that message — rather than needing to search for it.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • Tasks with links back to emails in Gmail were broken. No longer. Happy Inbox Zeroing!
  • Couldn’t access your settings? That’s fixed too.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Once again, when you open Todoist notifications you’ll end up in the correct task — even with your Android 12.
  • Tap more than twice when using Quick Add and Todoist will remain alive and well.
  • Add a color to your label, as usual. (Then take a look at it from your new Filters & Labels view!)

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • Using VoiceOver in any other language than English occasionally caused English button titles to be read — but with your language’s pronunciation. That’s not good, so it’s fixed.
  • The beauty of Todoist is quickly adding task after task — which is harder if the app crashes when you’re doing just that. Not anymore!
