Finish the year strong 💪: Dec 15

As the year draws to a close, we’ve been working hard to release some exciting features to help you end the year focused and organized with Todoist.

A better look at your week 🗓️

Calm and in control 🧘‍♀️. That’s how you’ll feel when looking at boards in the Upcoming view. Available on web and desktop, get a quick overview of your weekly schedule and plan your days ahead. When you enable boards view in the Upcoming view, every day of the week is a dedicated section, with your tasks shown as cards underneath. Drag and drop your tasks between days for superquick rescheduling and use the shortcuts shift + → and shift + ← to navigate to the next and previous weeks.

Plan your day with Boards in Today view

It is now possible to enable boards in the Today view. Exciting news for those looking for an option to “Kanban” their day! Let’s say you have different labels for e.g., phone calls, emails, work tasks, and personal tasks. You can now select Group by Label from the sorting options. Each label will be displayed as a separate column with its tasks shown as cards — a quick and easy way to get a bird’s-eye view of today’s workload.

Formatting made easy ⌨️

wysiwyg-editor-1x.gif

Make your task stand out in bold, highlight text in italics, or add handy links to your text. Formatting has never been easier with our new WYSIWYG editor (What You See Is What You Get. Get it? 🤭). All you have to do is highlight a piece of text, then select formatting options from the editor menu that appears. And a special note for the “We ❤️ Markdown” crew: tech-savvy folks can still paste Markdown or type its syntax into Todoist to convert the text into Rich Text.

Formatting text with the WYSIWYG editor is only available on the web and desktop, but any formatted text will appear as such across all platforms.

Complete and start over 🔁

reset_sub-tasks.png

Due to popular demand, you can now reset your sub-tasks whenever you complete the recurring parent task they belong to. Perfect for those daily routines and habit tracking. Go to the task menu (or long-press the task’s circle on mobile) to choose how you want to complete a specific recurring parent task. You can also set the default behavior for completing recurring tasks with sub-tasks in your settings. Learn more.

 

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • The notifications panel will now show the last tab you had open, so you can pick things up right where you left off.
  • New habit push notifications to stay on top of your tasks of the day: morning overview and evening review. To activate on mobile, toggle them on via Settings > Notifications.
  • We thought it would be nice to change the color of links to red. It wasn’t. Link colors are now neutral again.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • You can once again create separate tasks in Quick Add when you paste multiple lines of text.
  • Duration of events in Google Calendar will now sync properly (only for newly created tasks).
  • It may have felt like you were in a house of mirrors when sections were duplicated for no apparent reason. That puzzle is solved, no more duplicates.
  • Notification messages were piling up and covering the left side of the screen, making it hard to do anything else. That’s fixed.

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • WatchOS users saw a spike in their productivity when recurring tasks with sub-tasks were accidentally completed thousands of times. This has been fixed.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • No more empty loading screen when trying to open the app.
  • Dynamic Add will once again place a new task in its intended spot.
  • Duplicate tasks will no longer appear when you uncomplete a task.

🗄️ Archived projects have moved: Nov 9

todoist-whats-new_11.09-changelog.png

Ah, the satisfaction of finishing a project and moving it to your archive. Done, never to be seen again. 👋 Unless … when you do want to see it again. We may have alarmed some of you who were looking for your archived projects in the last couple of days. Sorry about that. We have moved archived projects for better access, allowing you to browse through your archive with more ease. To access your archived projects, click the Projects header in the sidebar and select Archived. Mobile users will be happy to know that archived projects can now also be accessed on mobile. To visit the archive on mobile, scroll down the projects lists and select Manage projects.

Also, we’ve been doing some fall maintenance: sweeping leaves 🍂 and removing bugs 🐛 to keep things working as they should be.

 

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Use the keyboard shortcut ctrl (⌃) + Enter while writing a task description to save the description.
  • On Android you can now leave, archive, unarchive, and delete projects directly from the menu.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • The add task button is now active when grouping by label or adding a task from label view.
  • All comments have timestamps again.
  • Links are now processed correctly when dragging an email from Apple Mail into a task name.

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • Widgets now display correct task counters for grouped tasks views.
  • Color sorting in the Productivity chart has been corrected and is looking all pretty again! 🤩
  • Fixed visual glitch that caused overlapping text in the app header.

  • It is now once again possible to move tasks to a section in the Inbox.

🔢 Versions

Headings for Mobile: Oct 12 📱

Our team has been busy with some app polishing ✨ and minor improvements to keep everything running smoothly. Also, we’ve successfully squashed a group of pesky little bugs. Bye-bye, bugs! 🐛

Heading formatting — now also on iOS and Android!

todoist-whats-new_10.22-changelog.png

There’s nothing like a heading to add a bit of structure to your writing. So mobile app users will be happy to hear that they can now also stylize text with headings in task descriptions and comments.

Create a heading by adding # in front of a word or phrase. The amount of # corresponds to the heading level. For example, to create a level two heading, use two number signs (e.g., ## Your Header).

 

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • When sharing a project, the link sometimes didn’t work. That was annoying, and we fixed it.
  • The E shortcut can once again be used to uncomplete (as well as complete) your task in task view.
  • You may have thought you were seeing double when duplicates of the same task started appearing. 👀 It wasn’t you. It was a bug. And that bug has been exterminated.

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • Reactions to comments will no longer disappear.
  • Items in the Quick Add menu are now properly translated (depending on your language settings, of course!).
  • The Unread tab will once again be empty when you’ve read all your notifications.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Clicking on a deleted task in the activity log resulted in a neverending search for something that can no longer be found, causing the app to crash. While deleted tasks cannot be opened or restored, the app won’t crash anymore regardless. 🤷
  • You can still see the task title when adding a task with Quick Add.
  • The preview text of comments should also be visible in Dark theme. It is now, so you are no longer left in the dark. ⚫
  • No more app crashes when moving tasks to a different project in Upcoming view or using & in the search bar.

iOS 16 Lock Screen: Sept 21 👀

todoist-whats-new_09.22-changelog.png

 

Announcing iOS 16 lock screen widgets! We couldn’t let a major update happen for our iOS folks without giving you something new to play with. You can now add tasks, check your goals and see what’s on your list for today, all from the fancy new iOS 16 lock screen. 🔒

In other news, we’ve also been powering through some bug fixes. Because checking things off our to-do list is what we do best. 🎯

⚙️ Plus Improvements

  • If you’re a filter lover (or yet to become one), you’ll be pleased to know that you will now see a task count next to filters on web. 🥳 Just like labels, projects, and favorites.
  • We’ve almost doubled the number of notifications Todoist can show (and it’s a lot). If your Todoist is a hive of activity, you’ll be glad not to miss out on that buzz. 🐝 And remember, you always have full control over your notifications if you like to keep things quiet. 🧘‍♀️

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • Archived tasks will no longer show up in your filters. You archived that task for a reason… To throw it into the abyss of system memory, never to be seen again. We’re honoring that now. 😌

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • Reminders are working on sub-tasks once again. Phew!
  • All comments will now load under your tasks. New ones, old ones, irrelevant ones. It’s all there for you to see again.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • In Dark theme, question marks appeared next to your unassigned tasks. Not a passive-aggressive way of us questioning your task choices. Simply a bug. And it’s fixed now.
  • No more app crashes when accessing the activity log or dragging sections in boards. Those are both working as expected. 🧹

Little Tweaks to Keep Todoist Sleek 😎: Sept 6

todoist-whats-new_09.06-changelog.png

We’re always tackling the big stuff here at Todoist, but the little tweaks and polishes need tending to as well. Here’s a bundle of improvements and bug fixes to give you a peek 👀 into what’s been crossed off the team’s to-do list.

⚙️ Plus Improvements

  • When viewing a task, you can now uncomplete (as well as complete) your task by using the shortcut E.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • A search for completed tasks will no longer bring back uncompleted tasks too. That bug has been banished.
  • Bulleted lists will now format correctly within comments and descriptions. Because who doesn’t love a list, within a list on their to-do list? (Woah…meta.) 😵💫

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • VoiceOver is back to reading out task priorities. So you can be sure to tackle your most important tasks first. 😌

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Snoozed reminders will no longer appear after you’ve completed a task. A pointless, pesky bug that has now been eradicated.
  • If you have a few projects with the same name, you may have found your Today view, grouped by project, didn’t show all of those tasks. That’s fixed now.
  • You can now log in by typing in your email address without problems again.
  • Comments got a little glitchy for a while, with invisible reactions and visible deleted comments, but those are fixed now.

🔢 Versions

Shortcut Update: Aug 11

todoist-whats-new_08.11_changelog.png

Indenting sub-tasks just got super speedy! While editing your task, use the keyboard shortcut ⌘/Ctrl + ] to indent and ⌘/Ctrl + [ to unindent. Full sub-task control at your fingertips. 🚀

Do you use task management with your team? We would love to chat with you. If you’d like to talk with us, fill in this form, and we’ll be in touch.

⚙️ Plus Improvements

  • Do you like receiving an alert email when there’s a new login to your Todoist? If it’s not your favorite thing, you can now toggle this off by going to Settings > Notifications > New Login Alert.

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • You can drag and drop your attachments to tasks again without the pesky error message.
  • If you noticed your shared project collaborator count was +1, you didn’t have a spooky visitor. 👻 We just needed to improve our math. That’s fixed now!
  • If you were having trouble opening completed tasks, that’s back to working as expected.
  • Every! X hours command was recently fixed, but this broke every X hours when the task date was overdue. Not the intended domino effect, so it’s fixed.

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • The ability to add a sub-task did a disappearing act when you completed all other sub-tasks. That unhelpful bug was duly squashed.
  • You can once again tap-hold a task to both assign and unassign it.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • If the numbers in your sub-task counter looked a little off, that’s because they were. But that’s been fixed now.
  • You can once again list your tasks alphabetically by choosing Sort by name from the sorting options.
  • Un-assigning a task when sorting is enabled will no longer cause the Android app to crash. 😬

Freshened Up: July 28 🧽

todoist-whats-new_01.16-changelog__1_.png

A few bug fixes here, some little updates there, and your Todoist is back to looking fresh and feeling fine.

 

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • You can once again bold an entire task by adding ** to both sides of the task name. (eg. **Create accounting spreadsheet** becomes Create accounting spreadsheet.)
  • If you were having trouble adding sub-tasks within sections, that bug has now been squashed. 🎉

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • Hidden sub-tasks will stay hidden (until you choose to show them again).
  • You may have had a bonus blank task added to your project when using voice dictation. Not the most helpful type of bonus, agreed. That’s now fixed!

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • You can delete a task from the widget once again without getting stuck on a load screen loop.
  • Reordering subtasks looked a little glitchy, but that’s back to running smoothly now.
  • When you complete a task in the notification center, the notification will now disappear. Instead of hanging around reminding you of that thing you just did.
  • Reminders are working on Android Wear once again.⏰

🔢 Versions

Latest versions at the time of publishing: Web 2301; iOS 22.7.17; Android v10010; Android Wear w9969; Windows 1.0.8; Linux 1.0.1; macOS 8.0.7

Back By Popular Demand: July 14

todoist-whats-new_07.14-changelog.png

We thought it was the result of a bug, but you told us it was actually a handy feature. So, we’re now supporting every! x hour task recurrence!

Perfect if you want a task to recur a set amount of hours from when it was last completed (e.g., taking medication, walking the dog, checking work emails, etc). Currently available on the web app and iOS, with Android following soon. 

 

⚙️ Plus improvements

  • Accidentally added ‘Everyone’ to a comment notification? You can now remove ‘Everyone’ with one click. Backtracking just got way more efficient.
  • Some fixes have been made to email notifications, so if you were having trouble with them, you should notice they’re sending reliably once again. 💌

🐛 Minus web and desktop bugs

  • The E shortcut for completing tasks now works in the new task view. You can get back to complete keyboard control.
  • Within a section, when adding a task above or below another task, the order of tasks got a little scrambled. No longer! Your task will stay exactly where you want it.
  • Keyboard shortcuts to move tasks up/down (⌘↑/⌘↓) didn’t work in board view, but that bug has been banished. 🙅‍♀️

🐛 Minus iOS bugs

  • When editing a task, the # shortcut created a label rather than a project. That was confusing and not what you expected, so we fixed it.
  • Your task count for Today view will now consistently show the right number of due tasks.

🐛 Minus Android bugs

  • Selecting the task breadcrumbs will now give you Go to... options. A vast improvement on the nothing it did before this fix.
  • Filters are once again working in Chinese languages on Android!
  • Sync has been tweaked, so you can get back to working seamlessly between all apps.
  • When selecting a task, the option to add a task above/below by selecting the three dots menu did a disappearing act. That’s now back where it belongs. ✨
