Week calendar layout on mobile: June 5

A new week calendar view is available for Experimentalists on paid plans using Todoist for iOS and Android starting today!

Here’s Hugo from the Calendar squad with a walkthrough of the new feature. 👇

Today’s new multi-day layout option is available in Upcoming on both iOS and Android. Android users will also have the option to use the week layout for their projects, filters, and labels. We’re working on adding this to the iOS version soon as well.

You can check out the new layout by navigating to Upcoming, opening the view options menu, and selecting the new layout (“3-Day” on iOS, “Week” on Android).

Calendar GIF 3 day layout.gif

How it works

The mobile version of our new multi-day calendar layout brings some brand new capabilities to the Android and iOS versions.

Scheduled tasks appear on the calendar under the respective date. If you assign a due time to your tasks, they will be slotted into the agenda for that day.

You can drag and drop to reschedule them or tap to open the task and edit the details. Or, use the due times of a task to have it time-block a specific stretch of your agenda.

Work in progress

We’ve got a few improvements in the works on both iOS and Android which will arrive in future updates.

On iOS:

  • As we mentioned above, the week layout is not yet available for projects, filters, and labels. But we’ll be adding this soon.
  • We’ll also be adding a date picker at the top of the screen to allow you to jump to future dates more quickly.
  • And lastly on iOS, at the moment we only allow going two weeks into the future and one week into the past using the new layout. We’re looking at increasing the timescales here and letting you move >1 year in either direction.

On Android:

  • We’ll make improvements to how overlapping tasks are handled, which has some issues at the moment.
  • We’ll also be adding an updated calendar layout switcher, as seen in iOS version currently.

On both platforms:

  • We’re working on the ability to drag and drop tasks from the all day section into the timeline.
  • We haven’t yet added the “Overdue” or “No date” task lists you’ll see in the calendar view on desktop. Let us know if you’d like to see it on mobile too!

Rollout

It can take some time for the updated version of the app to appear in the app store in all regions, so thanks for your patience! 🙏 On iOS, you may need to quit and reopen the app before the new layout will become available.

The minimum app versions you’ll need in order to see the week layout are:

  • iOS - 24.6.4
  • Android - v11446

As a reminder, any bugs you find should go to our Experimentalist support channel, and your feedback or feature requests can be submitted using the in-app feedback link. ✌️

Happy testing! 🧪

 

Week calendar layout on web: May 1

Today we’re kicking off the rollout of a Week calendar layout to Experimentalists!

Here’s Jon from the Calendar squad with a walkthrough of the changes. 👇

How to test Week layout

The Week option will be available when using the calendar layout in Upcoming, projects, filters, and labels. To try it out, open the View menu and select Calendar. When you switch to Calendar, a new Layout option toggle lets you switch between Week or Month.

3-Schedule No Date tasks.gif

Right now, the new Week option is only accessible in your browser or using the desktop app. But we’re working on bringing it to iOS and Android apps soon too!

How it works

Working with tasks in the week layout has a lot of the same functionality as in the month layout, with a few new details to make the most of the more detailed view.

As in the month view, you can drag and drop tasks around the calendar to reschedule them. In the week layout, you can also quickly change the duration of the task by pulling on the top or bottom of the task.

2-Drag to schedule and adjust duration.gif

You can also drag tasks back and forth from the All day section, making it easier to adjust your workload throughout the week but keep the tasks visible.

3-Schedule No Date tasks.gif

Any tasks that don’t have a due date assigned will show up in a No date panel. Drag tasks right into the calendar to fit them into your schedule for the week.

4-Scheduling from All Day s.gif

 

Rollout

To begin with, we’ve activated this new option for a small group of (randomly selected) Experimentalists. If everything goes smoothly, we’ll roll out to everyone with Experimental Features enabled soon. Thanks for your patience! 🙏

As a reminder, bugs you find should go to our Experimentalist support channel, and your feedback or feature requests should go to our beta feedback form. Or just click the Send feedback button in the View menu. ✌️

Feedback button.png

What’s next

We’re super excited to see how the week calendar helps you with planning and getting things done in Todoist. We’ve got a few more Calendar updates coming your way though, so keep an eye out for more updates! 👀

Until then, happy testing!

 

Project Insights in Team Workspaces: April 19

Heads up, Experimentalists! Expect to see new collaborator chips and stats icons on your workspace overview. Additionally, we’ve now made the “Joined” tab the default tab that you’ll land on whenever you visit the workspace overview page. Get ready to dive into a more informative dashboard!

Drag and drop in project calendar layout: December 14

After reviewing hundreds (and hundreds) of your helpful feedback submissions, we're happy to announce that the number one request — the ability to drag-and-drop unscheduled tasks into the calendar directly — is now live for Experimentalists!

It's pretty self-explanatory, but here it is in action: 

23H2 Collab Demos (3).gif

But that's not all. Our developer Paweł also implemented another of your top requests, and now scheduled sub-tasks show in the calendar layout too. 

23H2 Collab Demos (1).gif

And finally — for now, anyway — we fixed a little bug that had the task and the cursor strangely distant from each other when dragging around. Now they're cozy as can be, just in time for winter!

23H2 Collab Demos (2).gif

Thanks again for all your valuable feedback — when you're able to provide detailed, well-reasoned feedback, it makes a world of difference, especially when you share how specific features (or lack thereof) impact your flow. 🙏

So keep it coming, and know we're listening; we've got a lot planned for 2024, guided by you.

As a reminder, bugs you find should go to our Experimentalist support channel, and your feedback or feature requests should go to our beta feedback form. 

Merry scheduling, and a happy new layout to you and yours! 

 

📅 Calendar layout in projects: Nov 22

Experimentalists can now use a calendar layout for projects!

It's the first major step on our journey toward robust calendars in Todoist.

They're coming, and we're definitely eager to work on them with you.
But first we need to solidify this important foundational step — that's where your experimental testing comes in. 🙏

Please use our Experimentalist support channel to log any bugs you encounter.

Our beta feedback form is the place to suggest any improvements and to share any details about your specific workflows that might help inform our development. The more you can tell us about how it fits — or how you’d like it to fit — into your real life, the better.

To get testing:

First, be sure you’re updated to the latest version (instructions), and that your Experimental features are toggled on. 

To make the most out of calendar layout in projects: 

  • Find a project that has a lot of tasks with due dates. 
  • In the top right of the project interface, find the `View` option on web/desktop or tap the 3-dot menu and View on mobile, and select Calendar. 
  • Once selected, all your tasks will be displayed in the new calendar layout. You can drag and drop tasks to change their due date, or assign due dates for tasks in the `No date` panel. 

Our product manager Hugo has a super-quick walkthrough video here: Unveiling Calendar in Projects

⭐️The calendar layout for projects is only available on the Pro and Business plans. If you’ve been on the fence about upgrading your Todoist, now might be the time to finally make the investment in your productivity and peace of mind. 

 

Reclaim your schedule with task durations: Aug 9

Your to-do list can be infinite. Your time… not so much. By popular demand, we’re bringing task durations to Todoist to help you take back control over your schedule and craft a realistic plan for each day. 

As one Todoister put it when she requested this feature:

“I am an intern at a law firm, a social activist, a student and, of course, I have many other duties in my life. To manage all that, I need to be able to control how much time I spend on each of my tasks in Todoist.”

By setting the time you’ll start a task and how long it will take, you’ll know exactly what will fit in your schedule — and what will just have to wait for another day. 

Then, see your plan neatly blocked out in your calendar app of choice alongside your other commitments. 

⭐️Task durations are only available on the Pro and Business plans. If you’ve been on the fence about upgrading your Todoist, now might be the time to finally make the investment in your productivity and peace of mind. 

You’ll get full access to task durations plus our newly revamped reminders, 100MB of file uploads, our new AI-powered Filter Assistant, and more.

Every improvement we make to Todoist is 100% funded by subscriptions from users like you. We don’t sell user data, we don’t have ads, and we’re not beholden to outside investors. It just feels like a more honest way of doing business.

Here’s the nitty gritty on how to use task durations:

  • When you click or tap on Time, you can now set the start time and assign a duration to your task.
  • You can also add a task’s duration via Todoist’s signature smart Quick Add by typing “for” (e.g., “Team meeting today 4pm for 45min” or “Write first draft 9am for 2 hours 30 minutes”).
  • If you’ve connected your Todoist to a calendar app, the task duration will sync to your calendar automatically (and, on Google Calendar, vice versa with 2-way sync so you can update your tasks from your calendar). More about using Todoist with your calendar
Have you tried time blocking? It’s a simple, yet effective way to cut down on context switching and bring more control back to your workday. Find out how the time blocking method can work for you and how to implement it with task durations in Todoist.

A big thank you to everyone who wrote in to explain what you were missing in Todoist and what you wanted these features to help you accomplish. This update is a first step towards bringing more powerful planning tools to your Todoist… 👀

Take task durations for a spin and let us know what you think.

Multi-task drag & drop: June 28

Latest Experiment 🧪

Re-organizing your tasks just got a lot faster with revamped drag & drop on web and desktop. You can now:

  • Select and reorder multiple tasks within a project or section at the same time.
  • Create sub-tasks in bulk by dragging them from left to right to adjust their indent level (or drop sub-tasks on top of their current parent task to turn them into regular tasks).
  • Move multiple tasks to a different project by dragging them to the left sidebar.
  • Know where you drop. We’ve added better visual indicators, so you know where exactly your tasks will land when dragging and dropping.
  • Click and hold anywhere on a task to drag it. No need to find the little grey “handle” to the left of the task.
  • Plus, reordering projects in the sidebar is now faster and smoother.

These subtle improvements will make keeping your Todoist organized that much faster and more intuitive. So you can focus on actually getting things done.

Want to see the new drag & drop in action? Take a look at this quick demo from Craig, our frontend developer from Vancouver, Canada who single-handedly developed this feature:

Go ahead, drag till you drop and don’t forget to share your feedback when you’re done! 🙏

[Update] Add reminders at hyper-speed: June 2

Thanks to your feedback, we've made some changes to the supported formats for the reminders shortcut. The article below (dated May 10th) has been updated to reflect these changes.

To make things even easier, you will now also see a couple of reminder suggestions appear when you type “!” when creating a task (on web and desktop).

Updated behavior for the "!" reminders shortcut

Set a reminder for a period from the current time (time when added to task):

Shortcut Example What it does

!30m

Work meeting today 10.30 !30m

Reminder set for 30 minutes from current time (time when added to task)

Set a reminder for an X amount of time before your task is due:

Shortcut Example What it does

!0mb or !0min before

Lunch at restaurant 1pm !0mb Reminder set at due time (0 minutes before)
!2db or !2days before Hand in report fri 5pm !2db Reminder set two days before the due time

!1hb or !1h before

Prepare meeting agenda 11am !1h before Reminder set 1 hour before due time

Note: When you add the "!x before" shortcut to a task without a due time, this will set a reminder for an X amount of time from the current time (time when added to task).

Scroll down to the May 10th article to see a full list of supported formats and examples.

 

Filtering made easy: June 1

Latest Experiment 🧪

Spend less time fiddling with filters with Filter Assist (web/desktop and Android)

If you’ve always dreamed of an easier way to create advanced filters in Todoist, then you’re in for a treat. Introducing ✨ Filter Assist — a new AI-powered feature designed to simplify and improve your filter experience!

Filter Assist will make it easier than ever to organize and manage your tasks in Todoist with custom filter views. No more wrestling with complex queries — let AI handle the heavy lifting and effortlessly create the filters you've always dreamed of.

Simply use natural language to describe your filter (e.g., “all tasks for this month in the Work project that are assigned to me”), and Filter Assist will generate the filter query for you that you can add directly to your Todoist. Want to see it in action? Here is Amir’s short demo that he shared on Twitter:

 

All Experimentalists can now experience the power of AI-driven filtering with Filter Assist. You can create 3 filters on the Free plan. Upgrade to Pro if you want to create more filters (up to 150!)

How to use Filter Assist

  1. In the navigation menu, select Filters & Labels.
  2. Next to Filters, click the + symbol.
  3. Click the Try it button in the Filter Assist banner at the top.
  4. Describe your filter in the Filter request field and click on Send.
  5. Wait for AI to do its magic. Your filter request will appear in the next window when it's done.
  6. You can change the filter's name, assign a different color, or add the filter to your favorites.
  7. Give a thumbs up or down to let Filter Assist know how it’s doing (this will help make it even smarter).
  8. Click on Add filter to add it to your Todoist.
  9. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback.

 

Filter Assist has been rolled out on web/desktop and Android, and is planned for release to iOS very soon. We’re excited for you to experience this new efficient and more enjoyable way to create filters. Give it a spin and let us know what you think of Filter Assist.

Happy filtering! ✨

Add reminders at hyper-speed: May 10

Latest Experiment 🧪

Introducing the “!” shortcut for reminders (web/desktop and iOS)

Update June 2: Thanks to your feedback, we've extended support for the reminders shortcut in Quick Add. This article has been updated to reflect the changes.

Add reminders as fast as you can think of them, with our new shortcut support for reminders in Quick Add.

reminders-quick-add-1.png

We’ve rolled out this new time-saving feature to all Experimentalists on the Pro plan (available on web/desktop and iOS). Now, the “!” shortcut will have you adding reminders to any task without breaking a sweat. Simply type “!” in the task name field, directly followed by the desired time for the reminder (or — on web and desktop — just select one of the useful suggestions that appear).

You can set a reminder for a specific time (like “!3pm”), for after a certain amount of time has passed (e.g. “!2h”), or to make sure you get notified an X amount of time before your task is due (e.g. “!30mb” or "!30min before"). Todoist will even understand when you add a reminder for “!later” (i.e. 4 hours later) or “!tomorrow” (i.e. the next day at 9:00 AM).

reminders-quick-add-2.pngIf you create a task at 8 AM, typing "!1h" and "!later" will create reminders for 9 AM (1 hour later) and 12 PM (4 hours later).

To make things even easier, a couple of reminder suggestions will appear when you type “!” when creating a task (on web and desktop).

Reminders in Quick Add are available to all Experimentalists on the Pro plan. Give it a test run and share your feedback.

Currently, the following formats are supported:

  • Exact time: e.g. “!4pm”, “!2.30pm”, “!7:45am”
  • Period from now: e.g. “!30m”, “!2h”, “!1d”
  • Time before due time: e.g. “!45mb”, “!2db”, “!4hb”
  • In 4 hours: “!later”
  • The next day at 9:00 AM: “!tomorrow”

 

As we continue to fine-tune the reminders feature, we’ll be rolling out more supported formats for the “!” shortcut. It has been released on desktop, web, and iOS, and will soon become available on Android too. The reminders shortcut doesn't work on global Quick Add on desktop yet, but this will also be added once we release the feature to everyone.

Let us know what you think and if you encounter any issues when using this feature.

Here is a list of examples to try out:

Shortcut Example What it does

!30m

Work meeting today 10.30 !30m

Reminder set for 30 minutes from current time (time when added to task)

!0mb or !0min before

Lunch at restaurant 1pm !0mb Reminder set at due time (0 minutes before)

!later

Clear the trash !later Reminder set for around 4 hours later from current time (rounded down to the closest hour)

!1hb or !1h before

Prepare meeting agenda 11am !1h before Reminder set 1 hour before due time
Note: When added to tasks without a due time, this will create a reminder set 1 hour from the current time.

!11am !1hb !2db

Dentist appointment Thu 2pm !11am !1hb !2db Multiple reminders set for: the next instance of 11 AM, 1 hour before the due time, and 2 days before the due date at 9 AM

!6pm

Get groceries after work !6pm Reminder set for the next instance of 6 PM

!30mb or !30m before

Take vitamins every day at 9am !30mb For each instance of the task, reminder is set for 30 minutes before 9 AM

!tmr 3pm

Hand in report before EOD !tmr 3pm Reminder set for tomorrow at 3 PM

!every 5pm

End of day review every day !every 5pm Reminder set for every day at 5 PM

P.S. ICYMI: Todoist for teamwork is under construction 🚧

No more need to toggle on the new task view! Our team has been hard at work tweaking the task view based on your feedback, and we’re happy to announce that this feature is now available for all Experimentalists!

Already have the Experimental features toggled on? Great! Simply sit back and enjoy your sub-tasks, comments, due dates, labels, and more – all in one place.

Your feedback makes a difference! Keep sharing issues and improvement requests via the task view survey. The team review replies weekly.

Reminders Research ⏰

Do you use reminders in Todoist? Our Designer Alex put together a survey to gather information on how you use reminders in your day-to-day. Share your thoughts directly with Alex by booking an interview slot (limited slots available), or by taking this short survey.

Our team has enabled a closed experiment to test a new task view in Todoist. While it’s still very early, we would love some feedback.

To activate this experiment:

  1. Go to Settings > Advanced
  2. Under Experimental Features, enable New task view
  3. Start testing and send your feedback

Individual versus Collaborative task management

We’re looking to interview Experimentalists who use Todoist individually, but use a separate tool for task and project collaboration at work. Is that you? Fill out this short survey →

Search on Android

Clicking search on Android will open in a bottom sheet, same as navigation or notifications. More consistency, less scavenger hunts.
