Read all about the latest Todoist updates and bug squishes here every two weeks. While we update Todoist apps at superspeed, we take a little longer on our extensive release notes.

Optimized for iOS 15: Sept 29

Todoist for iOS 15 showing the scan feature, notifications, an extra-large iPad widget, and adding a task to Quick Note.

How do we celebrate the launch of iOS and iPadOS 15? By optimizing Todoist for it, of course! Get the most out of your app with these handy new Apple-only features:

  • Turn handwritten notes and napkin scrawls directly into tasks or task descriptions. That’s thanks to the new scan button for Quick Add (it works with any other Live Text, too).
  • Save a few taps by linking back to any task right from Quick Note.
  • Never forget to complete a task again (even when you’re using Focus) by turning on Todoist reminders.
  • Get a complete overview of your day with an extra-large widget on your iPad home screen.
  • Quickly see who’s assigned which task (helpful for those less desirable shared home chores) right from your widget.

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • On Todoist for macOS and Windows 10, you’ll now find platform-specific settings in Settings > Advanced.
  • On Android, we’ve added a button in the task view for you to easily move it to a different project.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • Tired of refreshing your Today view after rescheduling tasks? Us too! (The Today view now no longer freezes after rescheduling a task to a different date.)
  • After bulk-adding sub-tasks, you can now manually reorder them again.
  • Section names show up as intended once again, even when custom sorting your tasks in board view.
  • What joy is there in adding an emoji to your task name when they’re misaligned? Well, some joy still, but we can do better than that. And we did! (Emoji are now aligned with task names again.) 📐
  • We took care of a few tyopos typos.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • When you check a task with a lot of comments, you’ll be taken to the newest comment once again.
  • Plus, Todoist now shows the places nearest to you in the search results when adding a location-based reminder.

A new Android design: Sept. 16

Not just experimental anymore: The new design for the Todoist Android app is now available for everyone! That means all Todoisters get to enjoy comfier navigation thanks to the new bottom bar and delightful animations.

Did you know you can open the navigation bar simply by swiping up?

Updated uploads

We've simplified our upload feature by removing the option to upload files from Google Drive or Dropbox, as this was only used by a very small number of users.

Instead, simply paste the link to your Google Drive or Dropbox files in your comment or task description, and you'll still be able to open your previously uploaded files.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • When you completed a task that had a URL in its name, the link was inactive and couldn’t be clicked on. No longer.
  • Shift + click to select multiple tasks now works smoothly in every scenario.
  • Recurring tasks weren’t updating as overdue when past their due date. This is now fixed, too.

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • You can now dismiss the top banner with a simple swipe!
  • Reordering sub-tasks in the task view wasn’t honoring the order, but no more. Your sorting order is restored.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Sharing photos as a task would trigger a sync error. Ouch! This is luckily not the case anymore.
  • Plus, you can add your task using voice input on your Wear OS watch once again.

The back-to-school edition: Sept 2

As students, educators, and lifelong learners prepare for the coming year, we’ve rounded up our best resources and the latest product changes (like task descriptions, a design refresh for iOS, a makeover for Android, and more).

60+ essential resources for productive learning

From the most effective study techniques to must-have organizational apps (other than Todoist 😉), these are all the tips and tricks you didn’t know you didn’t know. Consider it your cheat sheet for staying on top of it all this school year.

Plus a few more productive tidbits for Todoisters heading back to school:

An iOS design refresh

Ready for a more polished iOS app? The Apple team at Todoist checked a few things off the list to give you an even better, more integrated experience:

  • Pull down any modal to close it, so you can get back to where you were at hypervelocity.
  • Quickly see who’s assigned to any tasks now that you can see assignees right from your Todoist Widgets.
  • Now even the icons in your settings use your Todoist theme color, for a far more customized look!
  • Plus, the design on your iPhone and iPad now looks way more integrated with Apple’s style, to make Todoist feel even more like the rest of your device.

(P.S. A far bigger Todoist update built for iOS and iPadOS 15 is coming to an Apple device near you soon. 👀)

And a new look and feel for Android (in previews)

Easier on the eyes but also on the thumbs, this design overhaul makes Todoist for Android feel right at home in 2021.

Be one of the first to try out the reimagined bottom bar for comfier navigation, new animations to make each interaction more intuitive and delightful, and countless thoughtful design tweaks throughout.

Test experimental features now

Plus:

P.S. We’ve cleaned up our code, and as a result, Todoist now only supports this text formatting. If you’ve noticed a change in your task names, reach out to support and we’ll convert them to the new format.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • A Karma blip occurred so you might not have seen all of your points adding up. That’s all been fixed once and for all!

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • The ever-present “Task added” banner at the top is now dismissed when you switch between apps. You can also swipe up to get rid of it the moment you see it.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • The Add Task widget is back and it’s working smoothly! No more scary app is uninstalled error.
  • Share any page using the Todoist option to “Add as a task” once again.
  • Your completed sub-tasks are now loading as expected in your task view (and you can see your sub-tasks due dates, too)!
  • Due dates and project names were not showing up in the Today and the Upcoming view. This is now fixed. ✓

🔢 Versions

Web 1278; iOS 21.8.14; Android 8474; Android Wear 8433; Windows 1.0.1; Linux 1.0.1; macOS 8.0.1

New and improved macOS: Aug 25

In order to make sure Todoist is the same everywhere, the macOS app is getting a brand new under-the-hood design. This means that you’ll get faster updates, more features, and more bug fixes.

This also means that it’s time to say goodbye to the existing native macOS app. While there was a lot to love about the previous version, our Todoist community has made it clear that consistency is key.

The new Todoist for macOS will be automatically available whenever you next update your app.

Group edit tasks — now in board view: Aug 4

When projects shift, timelines turn, or tasks get reprioritized, a single change can cascade to affect a wide number of to-dos. Manage all of your tasks at once by selecting every last one and then scheduling, moving, labeling, prioritizing, assigning, completing, or even deleting them — together.

If you were taking care of business at once in list view, now you can do it in board view too — whether on your web, desktop, or mobile app!

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • Check the activity for your task and you’ll see only that task’s activity — not the rest of the team’s activity on other tasks.
  • Ready to feel like a pro? There’s a new advanced section in your settings. (That’s where you’ll find the option for experimental features.)
  • Add, delete, and change your payment option as you like, now that your subscription settings are debugged.
  • Using your quick add shortcut (the fantastic q key) will let you type your task name out in the order in which you planned it.
  • Plus the usual polish for the app’s design and spacing.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Your task list will update as expected, even when you turn on experimental features.
  • Open your navigation menu to see your projects and views with a single swipe up from the bottom.
  • You can close that menu or any notification with a single swipe down, too!
  • Plus the usual polish for the app’s design and spacing.

Task descriptions & more: Jul 22

Every now and then it’s important to take a step back and contemplate what is working and what could be improved upon. In past big-picture reviews, the team has dreamed up things like flipping the traditional to-do list on its head with boards as well as creating a bird’s eye view of the future with Upcoming view.

This time, it’s a tiny little field that creates really big results. Maybe you’ve already tried it by toggling on experimental features or maybe it’s your first time adding in additional details. Either way, we hope you love it.

It’s all in the details

The task description field is directly under the task name field.

Task descriptions have arrived! They let you add a little extra detail right below your task name — for those extra complex or extra verbose tasks.

You now can add notes, bullet points about timing, and links to relevant documents. Hey, why not drop in some motivational quotes as well? What's great is you can do it all without having to jump over to your comments.

  • Notifications should work all of the time, not randomly. That’s the case once again.
  • Done with a section? Delete it! (Now that this pesky bug was eliminated.)

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

Global shortcuts: Jul 7

Say goodbye to bugs and hello to brilliance. Todoist was hard at work destroying issues and adding flourishes.

Global quick add has arrived for Windows

Imagine that every time you needed to launch Todoist, you did it with the push of a few buttons.

That’s now a reality for Windows users. Simply use Win + Alt + s to open Todoist — and close it the same way. Or push Win + Alt + q to add a task no matter where you are on your desktop.

Save time and energy during your day by speeding up workflows with three buttons. Plus, you can feel even more in control by customizing your shortcuts in System Tray > Settings.

Test new features first

Obsessed with trying things first? You can now turn on Todoist’s experimental features on every device at once. Just toggle on experimental features at Settings > General.

Plus, keep up with every single feature on the testing list on our new Experimental Features page.

 

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • Import templates to your heart’s content now that the importer is bug free! Stop reinventing the wheel and get inspired by time-tested templates.
  • When you add tasks or events via the integration between Todoist and Google Calendar, they’ll stay put even when you remove the integration.
  • If you accidentally press Ctrl + o while editing a task, Todoist won’t crash. That’s very specific, we know, and now it’s very specifically fixed.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Todoist will stop Google autofill from automatically "fixing" your task names. Bad robot!
  • Seamlessly use your voice with Todoist via your Android Wear device. Those bugs didn’t stand a chance.
  • Set reminders for 1 minute, 59 minutes, and all the minutes in between and you’ll actually receive them. ⏰
  • Select multiple tasks when you want to thanks to some bug extermination.
  • Slice and dice your projects with exactitude. When you choose to group by due date and then sort by default, you’ll see exactly that.
  • Plus a design touch-up or two.

Bug squishes for reminders, sorting, & more: Jun 23

When bugs attack, Todoist fights back. These updates were all about pest extermination. With this update you can refer to the app as Exterminatist. 🐛🪦

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • Make sure your notifications work when you set them by testing them out. Go to Settings > Reminders and hit Send a test push notification.
  • View your prioritized tasks in the right order thanks to a few fixes. When you’re viewing a list of tasks with a certain label, during a search, or in Today view, you’ll see your p1 tasks at the top.
  • You’ll see your highest priority tasks first (or at the top) when you group by priority, too.
  • But if you want to see your lowest priority tasks first, simply sort by priority in ascending order.
  • Get even more granular by sorting by date, too. Now when you have multiple tasks due on the same day, you’ll see your highest priority tasks first.
  • Reschedule your tasks with next week and they’ll end up on the day of the week you chose in your settings.
  • Move a task to a shared project and assign it to a teammate at the same time, thanks to a time-sucking bug squish.
  • Plus, assign tasks to collaborators with long names by typing + and any part of their name!
  • The digital chiropractor made some much-needed visual alignments. Todoist is a bit straightened out.
  • Interested in testing out new features before anyone else? You’ll now find that in Settings > General > Experimental features. And thank you in advance for all your feedback!

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Positive reinforcement triggers a reward signal deep within the brain, making the action that caused the good feedback far more likely to be repeated. This bug squish allows the task complete tone to once again resound in those profound recesses of your cerebrum, cheering on your productivity until it happens more and more often.
  • Todoist reminders aren’t worth much if they don’t show up on your device or in your email. Get every reminder notification you’ve asked for, now that this bug was stomped out.
  • Once you get a reminder, you can snooze it for all your tasks, too — because sometimes they can (and must) wait a little longer.
  • Drag tasks to the top of your projects. They’ll sit and stay where you dropped them, just like the good little tasks they are. 🐶
  • Sort all your tasks alphabetically, now that umlauts appear in the correct order.

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • Drag tasks to the top of your projects. They’ll sit and stay where you dropped them, just like the good little tasks they are. 🐶
  • And when you sort your tasks by priority, you can choose ascending and you’ll see your p4 tasks first or descending to see your p1 tasks first. That’s a fix as they were the opposite way before!

Fearlessly focused: Jun 9

Every Todoist release aims to make checking things off your list more functional, more flexible, and (dare we say it?) more fun. This one is no different. After today’s update, you can expect Todoist to be the fastest, friendliest, fluent-est version you’ve encountered yet.

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Uncompletable tasks are now officially counted in the number of tasks due in your Today view or shown while picking a date from your scheduler.
  • The text color in your Android dark theme now looks more polished and legible.
  • Are you sure you want to delete that task? Todoist for Android is now a little more clear when asking you the question.
  • View every bit of a large block of code in any task description, now that they wrap instead of flowing off the screen. (Psst: Want to try out task descriptions? Become a beta tester!)

  • Your navigation menu is the same width on the web and legacy macOS app as in the new macOS app!
  • Sort your tasks by priority in ascending order and you’ll see your lowest priority tasks first; do it by descending order, and you’ll see your highest priority tasks first. Todoist was celebrating Opposites Day before! 🔀
  • Drag and drop tasks seamlessly thanks to a few bugs being completely obliterated.
  • And a few translation touch-ups to keep Todoist fluent across the globe. 🌏

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Navigate Todoist faster with your screen reader, now that sections and dates are recognized as landmarks.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • Edit without fear now that Todoist double checks that you really want to exit a task or comment without saving it first. Because you shouldn’t lose a morning’s work with a single accidental click.

  • Use the Esc key to close task view — for times when you need to make a quick getaway.

  • Couldn’t log in from the legacy Todoist for Windows app? That’s been fixed.
  • Close your navigation menu and when you refresh Todoist, it’ll stay closed. Open your navigation menu and it’ll stay open, too.
  • Move a task to the right project a little easier now that sub-projects and sections neatly nest beneath each other rather than being completely out of alignment.
  • And other alignment, copy, and design polishes, too!

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • Filter your lists using added by: me and you’ll see all tasks you’ve created — in every project you’re part of, not just your shared projects.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

Small things add up quickly: May 5

Whether you’re working remotely, getting back to the office, or about to take some (well deserved) time off, it’s a good time to get your tasks in order so you can make the most of your precious time. That’s why we’ve made some upgrades, tweaks, and under-the-hood changes that’ll add up to a more reliable, speedier experience.

Task descriptions — now in beta!

The 'create pitch deck' task includes a task description 'Use the new template'.

Some tasks need more explanation than a name alone. Now you can add some extra details using the task description right below your task name.

Try adding a detailed description to a teammate's task or add the number of sit-ups you'll do in your Wednesday workout task. You can even include links and formatting with Markdown!

Try this highly-requested feature before everyone else by joining our beta testing program. Just don’t forget to tell us what you think and how you’re using it afterward!

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • The Gold theme is now available to free users. 🌟
  • We've made a small update to the geolocation section of our privacy policy. It’s now clearer that we only use your geolocation information for location-related services like location-based reminders. Rest assured, we don't store or see your location, and we'll ask for your consent when you access these features for the first time.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • When you paste multiple lines of text into a task, it becomes multiple tasks. If you are currently editing a sub-task and paste the multiple lines of text there, the new tasks will properly become sub-tasks at the same level. 
  • If you use an asterisk emoji like *️⃣, it’ll show up just right.
  • When your location changes, you won’t run into trouble with reloading tasks.
  • Sub-tasks will load a bit quicker thanks to some under-the-hood changes.
  • There were a few times Todoist would reload randomly, but not anymore.
  • When it’s time to double up, you won’t have a problem duplicating tasks with sub-tasks.

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • We dropped some excess baggage: The app is now half the size. 🧳
  • When scheduling a task, if you type a time that’s before today’s current time, Todoist will know you mean tomorrow. 🔮
  • The Edit Task pane has all the right colors.
  • It’s more intuitive to change your password, in all languages.
  • Your reminders will properly recur and notify the right people.
  • If you’re using widgets for a Todoist experience on your home screen, it’ll perform better.
  • Your live notifications will show the right details, like which task you completed.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Sometimes when you rotated the device or switched between day and night mode, weird things happened. No longer!
  • For the multi-taskers, you can once again properly save a task when editing a second task.
  • If you get an update, the dialog will now have a more refined look.
  • The color picker will now show up in the bottom sheet.
  • Due dates won’t reschedule at some random times, like during daylight savings time.
  • The little ‘undo’ bar will disappear when you use Quick Add for your next task.
  • A handful of text updates, color fixes, and more to keep Todoist polished.

Spring cleaning: April 21

Spring has sprung (at least in the Northern Hemisphere). That means it’s time for spring cleaning and making Todoist faster, bug-free, and easier on the eyes. 🧹

Want to join in the fun? We’ve got you covered:

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Reach Todoist Zero? Todoist will celebrate your accomplishment with you — now even when you are using sorting options!
  • A few other subtle design fixes and flourishes to keep your lists looking 💯.

🐛 Minus bugs

  • Add tasks as fast as you can think of them, now that the button works while using Quick Add via your macOS app!
  • A bug was performing a vanishing act on the top bar — making it completely disappear when you tried to use search. Poof, that bug is gone and the top bar is back. 🎩🐇
  • Sections were disappearing, too. Thanks to a little Todoist magic, your sections are back and here to stay (unless you choose otherwise).
  • If you duplicate a task in your Today view, your task will be duplicated while remaining in the same project and section as your original task.
  • Try adding a new project, label, or filter with the + icon in your navigation menu. It’s possible now that the entire pop-up appears, instead of just the top of that pop-up.
  • Then, once you make a new project, you’ll be able to add new tasks to it immediately and dive right in. (Thanks to another bug squish.)
  • Todoist won’t jump around when you click the three dots icon next to projects in your navigation menu. (But we jumped around after this fix.)
  • When you paste a whole bunch of text as sub-tasks in Task view, Todoist always asks if you’re sure you want to add those tasks. If you use your keyboard shortcut Esc to cancel, you’ll remain in Task view so you can try again if you want.
  • Add a due date and due time by typing @ and then the time — as usual.
  • You can also reschedule your tasks on your Android device with the correct due date and time, instead of the correct due date but the current time.
  • Add a task with the dynamic add button and it won’t default to today as the due date.
  • Keep track of your output now that your daily and weekly tabs in your Productivity view are visible and accurate once again.
  • Plus, keep tabs on who reacted to what now that reactions are back up and running on your Android device.
  • Finally, open Todoist for Windows with a single click, rather than a double!

Making new plans: Apr 13

The more you use Todoist, the more features you discover. But some of the most powerful features available — like labels and filters — used to be for paying customers only. Not anymore!

If you’re using the free plan of Todoist, you’ll soon have access to previously locked features like filters, file uploads, comments, labels, and more.

Check out our Help Center to read all the details about the new Free plan.

P.S. We’ve also renamed our Todoist Pro plan (formerly Premium). You still get access to reminders, Pro themes, as many projects as you need, and more… but now with a catchier new name.

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Learn even more about keyboard shortcuts now that the pop-up explaining them is a bit more polished on Todoist for desktop or in your browser. Find them all by selecting the question mark icon in your top navigation bar and then Keyboard shortcuts.
  • Inline code and code blocks are looking cleaner and more legible than ever. Try them out by surrounding your text like so: `inline code` or ```code block```.
  • And Todoist’s reds are a little redder on black backgrounds.

🐛 Minus bugs

  • You can once again use Quick Add to create a task, change your mind and discard it, and then change your mind once more and add another task. Perfect for those of us who are a tiny bit indecisive. 🤷
  • If you were one of the lucky few who saw large colored squares instead of the normal project icons, things should be back to normal.
  • Third time’s the charm: Pop-ups and views scroll and resize as expected, no matter how large or how small you make Todoist — for real this time!
  • Add custom sorting (like by project or priority) to any of your filters and you won’t find your tasks duplicated.
  • Labels won’t be temporarily duplicated when editing tasks, either.
  • Plus, when you use custom sorting in Board view on your iOS device, your sub-tasks will remain neatly tucked under their parent tasks (as expected).
  • Scroll to a future date in Upcoming view and add a task. Your new task will appear at exactly that date instead of a random one. That’s because you know your schedule best!
  • Then you can find the present moment in Upcoming view with the Today button, no matter where you’re using Todoist.
  • Select a task on your Android device. You can once again add new tasks above and below that task.
  • And finally, keep track of your Karma more easily thanks to a little resizing of your Todoist productivity view widget on Android.

Bug extermination: Mar 24

We spend a lot of time gathering the latest and greatest feature requests, dreaming up spectacularly streamlined app updates, and picking the most wondrous words to create these updates.

But every now and then we secure the perimeter, set traps, and completely stomp bug after bug, only to gather them all in the glorious display we call a bug report.

As the team has been working towards an exciting, game-changing feature, they’ve also been squashing bugs left and right.

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Markdown got a spiff up. Check out the crisper, cleaner look of quotes, horizontal lines, and code.
  • Todoist can auto-detect even more due dates in task names, like April twenty six and every mon, every tue.

🐛 Minus desktop and web bugs

  • Use the shortcut Shift + click to quickly complete a task forever — even when you’re in task view.
  • Search for a comment, open that comment from your results, and you’ll actually see the comment!
  • Your tasks might have gotten out of order when adding and rearranging tasks in sections. No longer.
  • Edit the names of tasks you’ve added from Outlook. You’ll once again be able to click those tasks and head right back to Outlook — like you should!
  • Get all the details about Karma levels now that you can scroll down in the About Karma Levels pop-up in your Productivity view.
  • Other pop-ups and views also scroll and resize as expected, no matter how large or how small you make Todoist. It’s flexible.
  • Plus a few visual and verbal polishes to keep Todoist vibrant and verbose.

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • Complete tasks while navigating Todoist with VoiceOver yet again.
  • Dark Mode stays dark no matter where you roam in Todoist. Because unexpected bursts of light aren’t welcome here.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Try out the all-new customizable app icons on Android without your app crashing. 😅
  • You can once again add tasks with your voice via your Wear OS by Google smartwatch.
  • If you had trouble adding labels or projects to tasks on your Android device due to an eerily transparent pop-up, everything is solid once again.
  • Go to the project and section of your choice from any task thanks to a little behind-the-scenes magic. Just click on the breadcrumbs at the top of your task and select the project or section you want to see.
  • Add a task for the future in Upcoming view and that task will be added to that date, instead of surprising you on your list for today.
  • Plus, you’ll find only tasks due today when you choose today’s date in Upcoming view — not your overdue tasks due yesterday (or the day before). As Mother Teresa said, “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”

🐛 Minus Windows bugs

  • Your Windows app will save your changes as expected, whether you were online when you closed the app or offline.
  • P.S. The new Todoist for Windows 10 is now available. Download the new app for a more consistent experience, more updates, and faster bug fixes.

Integrations for focus: Mar 10

Do you sometimes feel you’re pulled in a million directions but never getting anywhere? You’re definitely not the only one. We all lose a little bit of focus every time we switch between devices, tools, and tasks — it’s human nature and it’s called context switching.

This latest batch of Todoist updates is built to help all of us cut through the noise and regain focus on what’s important.

Flip the switch

There are so many Todoist integrations to choose from.

One of the most obvious ways to defeat context switching is to stop switching between apps. That’s where integrations come in. Connect Todoist to all your favorite apps so you can share files, block time off your calendar, and track your time right from Todoist.

A few favorite integrations:

Tip: Wondering how else to stop context switching? There’s a deep dive into context switching on our blog — complete with nine research-proven methods to keep your focus in this distractible world.

Start from square two

Select the three dots icon and then Duplicate project.

Searching for checklists, documents, and timelines scattered across different apps breaks down concentration. Instead, duplicate your most-used projects in two clicks and reuse them again (and again). This means you can now create templates — for your upcoming podcast episodes, yearly spring cleaning lists, or company retreats (fall 2021 🤞).

Need inspiration? Take a look at a carefully curated selection of top Todoist templates — including How to Organize Your Finances by the experts at YNAB.

Make mobile more focused

Stay on track with mobile productivity widgets.

Mobile devices are tools that can be time sucks or time savers. Remind yourself to choose the latter with the all-new productivity widget on Android. It’s now easy to keep an eye on your daily and weekly task goals (plus your current Karma score) right from your device’s home screen.

P.S. There’s a productivity widget on iOS, too!

Get that icon-ic look

Customize the color of your Todoist icon on Android or iOS.

You can now make Todoist stand out from the crowd (or coordinate with the rest of your palette) by customizing the color of your Android app icon. That’s at Settings then App Icon.

Jealous, iOS users? You’ve had your own custom app icons all along.

Tidy up your project list

Hide your favorites when you don't need them with the arrow.

As life gets busy, your list of projects, labels, and filters can get a bit too packed to find what you need (making it easier to end up distracted). Cut the clutter by collapsing your favorites. Of course, you can always expand them to see all your top views when you need them next.

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Get up to speed (or help your teammates do it) with our new and improved Getting Started Guide.
  • See the big picture, even in small windows now that Todoist Quick Add extensions (like on your browser) resize when you open your scheduler.
  • Orient yourself faster on mobile now that you can view the project, section, and parent task at the top of any task view.
  • Todoist is a bit smarter at auto-detecting due dates in tasks, as it now understands things like every other year.
  • And the usual style and word tweaking and tuning (like new icons for attachments).

🐛 Minus bugs

  • Know where you are, no matter how far down a task list you scroll (even while using Safari). The name of your project, label, filter, view, section, and date always stays at the top of your screen once again.
  • Delete a task with an emoji in it and the confirmation message will show that emoji. 😎
  • Head to a newly-created project without your Android app crashing.
  • Swipe through the dates in Upcoming view and pick a day. You’ll see that day’s tasks once again — even on iOS!
  • Check off a task on your Apple device and Todoist will... check it off. 😅

Versions: Web 1086; iOS 18.10; Android 7810; Android Wear 7769; Windows 0.2.7; Linux 0.2.4; macOS 7.5


Mix and match: Feb 23

February 23, 2021

Personalize your app with customizable mobile icons!

Personalize your mobile icon

Make Todoist yours by customizing the color of your mobile app icon — now on iOS and Android! Whether you’re color coordinating with the rest of your mobile palette or making Todoist stand out, there are now 10+ colors waiting for you. Head to Settings on iOS or Android, select App Icon, and mix and match.

Accessibility improvements

Todoist is now more easily navigable via keyboard and screen readers — thanks to incredibly generous users like @justinromack who rightfully demand accessible design. That means you now have more control with skip links, landmarks, labels in the navigation menu, and keyboard support for Inbox links. Have a suggestion? Reach out.

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Enjoy a smoother, sleeker login experience for Windows (soon to come to macOS and Linux)!
  • Todoist just got a bit smarter on Android — now magically converting task names with later this week, weekend, every weekend, and next weekend into due dates. 📅
  • Some far-out spacing updates in Todoist design. 👽

🐛 Minus bugs

  • Keep up the pace with keyboard shortcuts on your desktop. Make a speedy exit from a Quick Add task comment by hitting esc. (And add that comment back again with ctrl + m.)
  • Open a far-away future task and when you close it, your Upcoming view calendar stays at that fated moment, instead of scrolling you back to the present time.
  • Comments now remain in Todoist forever, even when you complete that task. Well, unless you delete them… because you're still in control.
  • Create a task plus a reminder with Quick Add and that task will actually appear on your to-do list.
  • Add labels to your tasks without worrying that your Android app will crash. 😅
  • View your Todoist tasks in your calendar of choice from Windows once again. Just head to Settings then Integrations.
  • Drag tasks between sections in Board view on Windows. In fact, we just dragged Squish drag task bug from the Doing to Done section. ✅

 

Versions: Web 1076-1081; iOS 18.4; Android 7772 - 7774; Android Wear 7757 - 7759; Windows 0.2.5; Linux 0.2.4; macOS 7.5

 


Seeing double: Feb 9

February 9, 2021

Easily duplicate projects

Meeting agendas, blog post plans, hiking packing lists — there are some projects you rely on time and again. Why add the same tasks over and over when you could just copy your existing project and get started? Thanks to a little Todoist magic, you can double your efforts in the click of a button. Just use the three dots icon in the top right-hand corner of your project and select Duplicate project. ✅

 

Tidy up your navigation menu

As life gets full, so can your Todoist menu. Simplify things by expanding and collapsing your favorites. Oh, and the look of your navigation menu is more streamlined. Can you spot the minor, but still attractive differences?

Plus, it’s much easier to find projects, filters, and labels with long names now that they’re truncated in the middle on iOS and Android. Take a look:

Long names are truncated in the middle.

 

⚙️ Plus a few more improvements

  • Stay up-to-date on all of Todoist’s latest features and bug fixes, with an easier-to-spot green version update notification in the top right — you might have even seen it before you came here. 🟢
  • Know where you are, no matter how far down a task list you scroll. Now not only the name of your project, label, filter, or view stays at top of your screen, but also the section or date!
  • Shortcut wizzes rejoice! Open your task view on the web or desktop and use A to add a task to the top of your sub-task list or a to add it to the bottom.
  • You can now use the keyboard shortcuts and % to create projects and labels on Android.
  • Up all night wondering about the opacity of your Android widget's Todoist theme? Find that percentile in Widget Settings.
  • Your Todoist icon for Windows is now smoother, sleeker, shapelier.

🐛 Minus all the bugs

  • Emoji in the titles of your projects and board sections might have been a little misaligned. That’s been straightened up. 📐
  • See all your tasks in projects with more than four sections in Board view. After all, seeing all your tasks is the whole point of a to-do list. 😅
  • Your filter and label names should work as expected once again, even if they have “unusual” characters.
  • Todoist will now celebrate your daily or weekly goals after you’ve achieved them — not a moment before!
  • Reschedule some of your overdue tasks without rescheduling all of your overdue tasks.
  • Add a new comment and Todoist will jump you to that comment — so you can see your great and wise thoughts. 💪
  • When trying to reschedule a task to a less-busy day in your future, you’ll no longer be thrown off by the task counter including a tally of your teammates’ tasks!
  • The counter next to the comments icon will once again show the exact number of comments counted, not a number greater or less than the number of comments there are.
  • Not to mention, your task count should be correct, too. Sometimes math is hard! 😅
  • If Todoist showed you “e.scrollTo is not a function” when you tried logging in, you should know that e.scrollTo is also not an error message now, thanks to this bug squash.
  • View your completed tasks, and yours alone, by going to Productivity > View all completed tasks.

Customized workflows: Dec 10

All-new themes, oodles of sorting options, and the new sound of getting things done.

The makers behind your to-do list have been hard at work to turn the delight dial up to full blast. Whether you get your kicks from switching the color of your theme every day*, reordering your tasks in a click, or pretending it’s finally 2021 with new goal templates — we’ve got you covered.

newsletter-td-whats-new-2020-q4_wear-pink.jpg

*On Wednesdays we wear pink.

 

Pick the palette of your productivity

There are now more ways to personalize the look of your app. Match your outfit, workflow, or mood thanks to three new Premium themes. Look pretty in pink, feel like blue royalty, or guess the mystery color you have to earn to use.

Want to share your guess? Head to Twitter — you could make 2021 your most productive year yet by winning a full year of Premium.

Gain perspective with new sorting and grouping options

You can look at a task list from many angles. Need an alphabetical list to keep track of everyone in a Zoom class? Got it. What about a project-by-project look at the day ahead? Yep. A view of the top priority tasks broken out by assignee in your work project? That too.

Here’s even more inspiration (and a how-to).

Amp up the satisfaction of checking things off with (optional) sound

Completing tasks is even more satisfying now that your click is accompanied by a cheerful *bloop*. Try it yourself by heading to Settings then General.

Unfortunately there's no sound of procrastination. Unless there's a whooshing sound when I move all my tasks to the next day.

— Mathias (@CrazyDriverSwed) November 3, 2020

Find tasks, projects, views, and old searches so much faster

Most people move to a digital to-do list because paper lists make it way too easy to lose tasks. (Where did that deep cleaning list go?) The same problem shouldn’t be happening in Todoist! That’s why search needed an upgrade. When you next use search, you’ll see recently visited projects, views, and searches — along with far more scannable results.

newsletter-td-whats-new-2020-q4_what-you_re-looking-for.jpg

Hey Google?

Todoist for Google Assistant 2.0 has arrived! Which means it’s way easier to be productive while holding groceries, walking the dog, eating a dripping ice cream cone, and more. When you want to use Todoist with your voice, just say, “Let me talk to Todoist.”

If you can say it, you can probably Todoist it via Google Assistant now that there are so many options to add, access, and complete tasks. To learn more, head to our in-depth article.

blog_google-home_1.png

Unfinished business stays that way with uncompletable tasks

Maybe you want to make sure you don’t accidentally complete parent tasks chock full of sub-tasks. Or perhaps you have an essential document to share at the top of a group project (like Hype-up coworking playlist). Whatever your reason, just add * and a space before your task name to create an uncompletable task.

Already using them? Make sure that you are using an asterisk (*) and not a colon (:) — the colon was used mistakenly far too often, so it’s no longer supported.

Rename headers in one click

It’s zippier than ever to edit the name of lists on your desktop. Simply click the name of any project, label, or filter and make a change. We’re thinking it’s perfect for that Epic 2020 Vacay Plans project. 😅

A Few More Things

An integrations glow up: An updated integrations catalog makes it nicer than ever to connect your list with all the apps in your workflow. 

Set your intentions: Now that we’re right around the bend from a new year (we won’t miss 2020, will we?), it’s time to think about the future. We make it easy with brand new, better than ever Todoist goals templates. Start a side hustle, organize your finances, cook more from home, and more...

A boatload of bug squishes: We counted 245! We should be called exterminators at this rate. Take a deep dive into our changelogs.

Here’s hoping that more themes, more sorting, and more searching makes the last few weeks of 2020 a little bit easier. And the year ahead better than the last.

 


Get sorted: Nov 18

Keep your tasks in perfect order with new sorting options

feature-image_v02.png

There’s more than one way to look at your task list. Whether you need to see your important to-dos first or sort your task list alphabetically, Todoist has you covered with powerful new sorting and grouping options.

You can now easily rearrange your task list based on the due date, priority, label, and many other options. For example, you can now see a calendar-like view of your project:

01_Group_by_due_date.png

Here’s how it works:

  • On the web, press the new sort icon in the top right, and select Sort by date.
  • On iOS/Android, tap the three dots icon in the top right, and tap Sort > By due date.

NewsletterAnimation.gif

To learn more about sorting options including a handful of useful examples, check out our the sorting options launch blog post . If you want to learn how to use the feature in depth, you can head over to the How to sort page on the help center, or watch the video below.

 


Todoist Boards: Sep 23

A more visual way to move your projects forward

Whats_new_image.png

Introducing Boards, a more visual way to organize your Todoist projects.

From weekly meal plans to five-year business strategies, this new layout makes it easy to see the big picture of your projects and make progress from start to finish.

Boards flip the traditional to-do list on its head by visualizing tasks as cards that can be dragged across customizable sections.

Social_Web_Drag.gif

Open any project in Todoist, press the three dots icon in the top right, and select View as board. You’ll be able to rearrange your sections, create new ones, and drag your tasks to anywhere on your board.

🏃‍♀️ Kickstart your next project with Boards templates to help you write a book, manage social media, develop an app, and more.

Get some more tips, tutorials and examples on the Boards launch blog post or dive into all the details on the Boards help center page.

We hope Boards gives you a new perspective on how to achieve your goals, both big and small.

 


Sizzling summer: Aug 23

Redesigned task editor, shortcuts for sections, unreads in one place, and so much more

The latest Todoist updates are making staying organized 11.2% easier and 3.5% more fun* — whether you want to move tasks to a section via a shortcut or check all of your unread notifications at a glance.

See every detail with the redesigned Quick Add and task editor for the web

unnamed.png

It’s now easier than ever to get a quick overview of what you need to know about a task as you’re adding or editing it. The spacious new layout in Quick Add and the task editor clearly shows the due date and assignee — plus they’re both completely keyboard accessible, so you can swiftly tab through, add, and edit every task’s details.

Quickly add a task to any section with a forward slash

qas.png

Sections help group tasks together, break up gigantic projects into parts, and give you an easy-to-scan view of everything that needs to be done. And they just got more powerful: You can now type “/” into a new task to quickly add it to any section of any project. The forward slash works when you edit a task name, too!

Not ready for a yearly commitment to add filters, reminders, labels, comments, and more into your life? Todoist Premium is now available for just $4/month — no yearly subscription required.

Keep track of all your unread notifications in one place

notifydark.png

Feel confident that nothing has slipped through the cracks, at work or in your shared family project. The new Unread tab makes it easy to find just the comments, assigned tasks, and updates that you haven’t seen yet. You can still switch over to the Notifications tab to see all of your notifications — read or unread — in chronological order.

Smartly schedule tasks with later this week and this weekend options

4.png

Since life happens on the weekends too, we’ve made scheduling or postponing a task in one click a little easier with brand-new scheduler shortcuts: this weekend or next weekend. Between Monday and Wednesday, you’ll also see a new shortcut to schedule a task for later this week.

Don’t want to open the scheduler? You can type these shortcuts directly into the task field too. Todoist will automatically highlight the due date and add it when you save the task.

Save time with (even more) iOS shortcuts for Siri

shortcutgif.gif

More Siri Shortcuts mean more on-the-go organization and prioritization. You can now ask Siri to open any project, label, filter, or view. Gearing up for a busy day? Have Siri read off what’s on your list for today at work. Want to decompress in the evening? Ask Siri to open your guilty pleasures reading list as you cozy up the couch. Customize your commands to fit your workflow and routines.

Simplify task editing with new context menus for iOS (plus mouse and trackpad options!)

contextgif.gif

Tapping is good, but long-pressing can be faster. On iOS and iPadOS 13+ simply touch and hold any task to open a handy context menu where you can schedule, prioritize, duplicate, delete, and more. A similar context menu will pop up when you long-press projects, labels, and filters too.

Using your iPad with a mouse or trackpad? Right-click instead of tapping to pull up the context menus.

Add Google Drive files to tasks on Android

androidgif.gif

Task and project comments let you add important details right where you need them most. Now that Android has caught up to the rest of the Todoist platforms, you can attach any Google Drive file to any comment for you (or your teammates) to easily reference later. Simply tap the paperclip icon in a task or project’s comments and select Google Drive.

Cultivate collaboration by using Zoho Cliq with Todoist

cliq.png

Zoho Cliq helps streamline your team communication through organized and searchable conversations, instant virtual meetings, and connections with the tools you already use (like Todoist!). Stay on top of shared work by connecting Zoho Cliq and Todoist to easily view all of your tasks and projects, find the files you need in tasks, and add and check things off your list.

Curious about using Zoho Cliq for team communication? They’re even offering Todoist users a deal to try it out — sign up with this link and get an automatic $100 credit.

Feature-Image.png

interface.jpg

💻 Plus: A spacious new layout for big screens

To learn more, catch up with all the latest Todoist for Web design changes on our help center.

 


Android widgets: Mar 4

See a few tasks in Today view in Android widget

Introducing a completely redesigned widget for Android that gives you full control of your tasks while also including a flexible look and an efficient new compact mode.

Time-saving workflows: Feb 14

See what we’ve been working on since Foundations

00_Designing_Todoist_Foundations-min.png

After the pedal-to-the-floor launch of Todoist Foundations, our product teams have been hard at work on a handful of smaller Todoist updates. Here’s what’s new:

🚀 Build time-saving workflows with updated iOS 13 Shortcuts

01_iOS_Shortcuts_720.gif

With updated iOS Shortcuts for Todoist, you can save time on repetitive actions. For example, you could create a shortcut called “Add a work task” that automatically moves a new task to your Work project and sets the due date to Monday. (Perfect for keeping your mind in weekend mode 🌞)

⚫ Let Todoist go dark along with your iOS and Android Dark Mode

02_Android_Dark_Mode.jpg

We’re happy to report that you no longer have to be unexpectedly blinded by your task lists. Whenever Dark Mode is activated on your iOS or Android device, Todoist will automatically switch to Dark theme, too.

📅 Manage your time better by syncing multiple Google Calendars to Todoist

03_Multiple_Google_Calendars.png

Syncing Todoist with Google Calendar is one of our most popular integrations, and you can now sync multiple Todoist projects to multiple Calendars. You’ll have fine tuned control over which tasks you want to see in Google Calendar, and any updates on either side will be reflected in both apps.

📧 Add emails as tasks from Gmail – on the web and from the mobile app

06_Gmail_addon.png

With the new Todoist for Gmail add-on, you can now add tasks from Gmail on any web browser (not just Chrome!) and from the Gmail app on any mobile device. When looking at an email, simply press the Todoist icon to the right on the web or at the bottom of the Gmail app on mobile.

🗣️ Stay more organized with the revamped Todoist Alexa integration

05_Todoist_Alexa_update.png

It’s easier than ever to use Todoist hands-free with our redesigned Todoist for Alexa integration. Simply say “Alexa, add a task” and Alexa will prompt you to add all the details. Check out a few more examples above.

✅ See your progress more easily by viewing completed tasks in Task View

04_Completed_tasks_in_Task_View.png

To make it easier to keep track of your sub-tasks, you’ll now see completed sub-tasks in Task View by default. So whenever you complete a task from Task View, the completed task will remain visible instead of disappearing.

📆 See your Todoist tasks in your Fantastical calendar

07_Fantastical.png

When you’ve got a lot of scheduling to manage, Fantastical brings all your calendars together in one place (on Mac or iOS). And now you can see your Todoist tasks in Fantastical too.

These updates are just the start: We’re currently working on more features and new workflows to help you save time, stay organized, and accomplish more. To keep up-to-date with everything Todoist, subscribe to our blog, Ambition & Balance.

 


Todoist Foundations 🎉: Oct

A faster, more intuitive, more reliable way to get things done.

Feature-image_1200.png

Over the last two years, the Todoist team has been meticulously rebuilding Todoist’s foundation to help you get things done in a faster, more intuitive, and more reliable way. And it’s finally time to share this new chapter with you:

Say hello to Todoist Foundations. 🎉

Todoist Foundations is an inside and out update that introduces useful new features and adds polish to the ones you already use every day. Dive into the details below. 👇

💪 Divide and conquer your projects with Sections

When you’re planning out a project, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer number of tasks. To make life easier, split your project into Sections and take your tasks on in parts.

Sections_Android_2x.jpg

Split a project into sections so you can take it on in parts.

Add a Section from the three dots menu in the top right of any project, then add tasks by dragging them in or adding them manually.

GIF_HAB_Add_Section_2x.gifAdd a Section in seconds and drag in a task.

Try using Sections to arrange your project by type of task (Copy, Research, Design), stage of the project (Research, Planning, Launch), or by timeline (Week 1, Week 2, Week 3).

Learn more about Sections…

💡 Manage every detail in one place with Task View

The secret to getting things done is to pay attention to the details. The good news is you can now manage everything from one place with the new Task view.

Task_View_Comments_2x.jpgTask View lets you manage due dates, projects, sub-tasks and more in one spot.

🔨 Break down your tasks with the Sub-tasks View

Sometimes a task is so intimidating you don’t even know where to start. Make those first steps easier by breaking it down with the new Sub-tasks View within Task View.

You’ll now have a dedicated space where you can add, complete, or rearrange your sub-tasks, so you can keep track of and check off each step along the way.

👇 Add a task wherever you need it with the Dynamic Add button (on iOS and Android)

It’s always been a breeze to add a task from mobile - but it wasn’t as easy to add the task or sub-task right where you wanted it in the middle of a project list. Now it’s as simple as drag-and-drop, thanks to the new Dynamic Add button on iOS and Android.

GIF_FAB_Add_Tasks_2x.gifAdd a task wherever you need it by dragging the add button.

Simply press and hold the Add button (the big plus sign button), and drag it to the spot where you want to add your new task or sub-task. You can even add a new Section by dragging to the far left of any project.

✅ See your completed tasks in context

You can now see completed tasks right inside your project. Simply open up a project, select “Show completed tasks” from the three dots menu in the top right, and you’ll see checked-off tasks below where they were completed.

🚀 Faster and more reliable on every device

You won’t be able to see some of the biggest changes in Todoist Foundations, but you’ll be able to feel them. People that have been using the beta for weeks noted that Todoist is noticeably snappier and more stable. Thanks to a major clean up of technical debt (accumulated from ten years of development), Foundations is the best performing Todoist ever, no matter what device you’re using.

And we’re just getting started: These under-the-hood changes lay the groundwork for powerful new features coming next -- including Boards and Upcoming View. 🚀 We appreciate your patience as we finalize our roadmap and make sure to get these just right.
