Reclaim your schedule with task durations: Aug 30

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.

Turn off task goal celebrations: Aug 15

“For the love of god let me hide/disable the new cutesy pop up congratulating me on finishing some arbitrary number of tasks.” 

We’ve heard similar sentiments from quite a few Todoisters that the celebration pop-ups when you complete your daily/weekly task goals are a bit too disruptive. Particularly on mobile.

We’re happy to report you can now turn off these pop-ups entirely from the Productivity tab in your Settings. 🙇

Multi-task drag & drop: Aug 3

Re-organizing your tasks just got a lot faster and much more intuitive with revamped drag & drop on Todoist's web and desktop apps. 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.

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: 

Special character support for project, section, and label names: July 11

Previously, when you added special characters to the names of projects, sections, and labels, Todoist replaced them with an underscore. So your “Work @home” project would turn into “Work__home” project.

While many thought this was a pesky bug, it was actually because of technical limitations. (Long story short: characters like @ / # " ( ) | & , ! interfered with the functioning of Quick Add, search, and filters). 

But now, thanks to some under-the-hood adjustments, these restrictions are a thing of the past. So you're free to use all special characters in naming your projects, sections, and labels (with the exception of white space at the beginning or end of a name, which will be automatically trimmed).

Looking for creative names to personalize your to-do list? Here are some new personal favorites from Todoisters:

Eat, Sleep, Code, Repeat., #YOLO, Don't Forget The Milk!, Rise & Shine ☀️, $ave More, $pend Less, ¯\(ツ)/¯, @TheEndOfTheDay 🌙

Add reminders fast with the new Quick Add shortcut “!”: Jul 5

Add reminders fast with the new Quick Add shortcut “!”

Save yourself several clicks by typing “!” in the task field to add a reminder (or several) to your time-sensitive to-do’s.

Typing “!” — or tapping Reminders on mobile — will now pull up a quick list of suggested reminder times. Choose from the list, or keep typing your own.

Some example formats you can now use to set a reminder:

  • !Mon 9am = Monday at 9 AM
  • !2h30m = 2 hours and 30 minutes from now
  • !30min before (or “!30mb” for short) = 30 minutes before your task is due (only works if your task has a due time)
  • !later = 4 hours from now
  • !tomorrow = the next day at 9 AM
  • !next week = Monday at 9 AM (unless you’ve changed the default for “next week” in your Settings)

Go to our help center for a full list of Quick Add shortcuts for reminders in case you’re curious.

Quick tip

Add reminders to your recurring tasks, like “End of day review every day !every 5pm”.

A few other design updates to make setting reminders easier: Jul 5

While we were adding the reminder shortcut, we made a few other design updates to make the whole reminder experience clearer, faster, and more intuitive:

  • The new menu on web/desktop allows for smoother date and time picking and the option to set a reminder for an amount of time before your task is due.

  • Scheduled automatic reminders will now appear in your task details as soon as you add a due time (if you have automatic reminders turned on in Settings).

  • Location reminders have been moved to a separate label for improved visibility. And, for even faster access, you can now place them front and center by customizing your Quick Add.

Create custom filters using natural language with Filter Assist: Jun 30

We’re the first to admit that figuring out the right query for your filter view can be a bit … complicated.


That’s why we set out to overhaul and vastly simplify creating a filter (with a little help from our AI overlords friends 🤖).

Before, you had to puzzle out a filter query that looked like this:

assigned to: me & due before: next month & #Work

Now, you can simply describe the filter you want using natural language, like this:

“all tasks that are assigned to me for this month in my Work project.”

The new, AI-powered Filter Assist will generate the filter query for you to add directly to your Todoist.

Want to see it in action? Take a look at a short demo from our founder, Amir:

Filter Assist is currently only available in English and Spanish. Learn more about Filter Assist at the help center.

Quick tip

Haven’t used filters yet? A few well-crafted filter views can go a long way in helping you focus on the right tasks at the right time. Here are 24 example filters Todoisters use to feel on top of their to-do lists.

Psst … Working on Reminders: Apr 25 🤫

Reminders are getting some much-needed love. Keep an eye out for a few exciting improvements coming very soon …

Of course, this is all still very hush-hush (well, most of it!), but we can tell you that reminders will look better and work even better real soon.

In the meantime, here are some smaller updates on reminders designed to help you remember the right tasks, at the right time, at the right place.

Pin reminders on Android 📌


Android users will be happy to hear that they now have the ability to “pin” reminders to their device’s notification panel. Accidentally dismissing a reminder will be a thing of the past. Head to your Settings and turn the Pin reminders toggle on to ensure crucial reminders will grab your attention when you need them.

More snooze options on iOS 💤


Things change, and sometimes a timely reminder is not what you need right now. On iOS, you now have more snooze options when you receive a reminder. To snooze a reminder, long press the notification on your device. Next to your default time for snoozing reminders, you can choose to snooze a reminder for 3 hours or even until 9 AM on the next day. Simply tap the desired snooze option, and get back to what you were working on in the first place.

Quick tip

You can change your default snooze time on mobile in Settings > Reminders > When Snoozed….

Improved reminder visualization (iOS) ✨


We’ve updated the design of reminder notifications on iOS, similar to what they already look like on Android. Now, the task name is placed front and center and the notification includes the reminder time. It’ll make interpreting reminders at a glance easier, so you don’t lose time deciphering them. Small change, big improvement!

Why am I not receiving reminders? 🤔

Figuring out how to set up your device to receive reminders can be tricky, so it’s no surprise that our number one frequently asked question is: “Why am I not receiving reminders?” We’ve got you covered with an updated Settings tab, in-app directions, and a new troubleshooting guide to help you set up your device for reminders.





As we continue to improve the reminders feature, it would be great to receive your input on which functionalities you’d love to see most! Let us know through this short survey.

Focus on to-do, not overdue: Mar 31

We’ve all had our fair share of overdue tasks staring us in the face. They can be quite daunting, especially when they take over your view of the day as they pile up to panic-inducing levels. Here’s a quick fix: you can now collapse the Overdue section on your desktop or browser. 🤩

Perfect for whenever you feel overwhelmed or just need to focus on Today before dealing with those pesky or less important tasks.


The collapsible Overdue section is available in the Today and Upcoming view. Just make sure you’ve switched to list view and don’t have any grouping enabled.

So, go ahead and hide them for a moment of clarity, but don’t forget to tackle those tasks tomorrow, later in the week, or … someday, maybe. 🗓️

In other news, spring cleaning has started, and we’ve squashed a group of bugs making everything feel fresh and clean again. 🧹 ✨

  • Your browser’s tab will now show the correct name of your label when you’re in a label view.
  • Peek-a-boo! 🙈 The recurring circle icon seemed to be playing games in the task view of a recurring task. Playtime’s over, we fixed that bug.
  • Long comments are displayed properly again.
  • Some of you saw today's tasks in the "Overdue" section of your Upcoming view. That’s not right, so we fixed that. What a relief, you’ve still got time! 😅
  • Reset sub-tasks of a recurring task are now placed in the correct order.
  • When you say “no date” or “no due date,” Todoist will know what you mean again.
  • You can once again include comments when printing tasks.
  • Want to delete a completed task? Go ahead, delete it! (Now that this pesky bug was eliminated.)

  • When you add a video link in the comments, it will now show an image preview.
  • Sometimes, the comment field wasn’t cleared after hitting the send icon. This has now been fixed.
  • Checking the Upcoming view on your watch? Don’t worry, it will no longer show tasks assigned to others on your team.
  • Completing a recurring task on your Apple watch will reset the task’s circle again.

  • You can now also uncomplete a task from the task view.
  • It’s great to get a notification when you receive a new comment. But, not so great if your device freezes after you close said comment. 😆 Luckily, that’s been solved.
  • When you receive a reminder on Wear OS, you can directly reschedule the task again.
  • Changing the date or due time may have resulted in some wonky behavior of the scheduler, but that won’t happen anymore.
  • Adding a website as a task in Firefox will now successfully work for all websites, not just for some.
  • Some fixes and design touch-ups to keep Todoist looking and acting refined. ✨

Bye-bye bugs: Feb 8

It’s a new year and we’re off to a good start with a nice list of pesky bugs we got rid of. Also, some tuning and polishing have made everything a little better than before.

Customize Quick Add available on all platforms


With Quick Add customization now available on all devices, you can make Quick Add work even quicker for you. Personalize your Quick Add by choosing which task actions you want to display and in what order. Even better, your settings will automatically sync across all platforms.

For example, if your workflow includes regularly assigning tasks to your team members, you can choose to add Assignees to your Task Action list. Do you work with an intricate labeling system? Put it front and center so it’s the first thing you can add to your task. Think of this feature as a way to simplify and tailor your Quick Add to the way you work best.

  • Do a little happy dance. 💃🕺 Each time you hit your targets with the new celebratory popups for reaching your daily and weekly goals (on web and desktop).
  • Improved scrolling in Todoist for Wear OS when rotating the digital crown on your watch.
  • If you use Todoist on Android, we can’t wait for you to reach #TodoistZero and see our new, delightfully moving animations to celebrate your success.

  • Good news for those with slippery hands: the task view will no longer close when you click and accidentally drag the cursor outside the window.
  • No more tricking you into thinking there are unread notifications when there are none. That bug was exterminated.
  • Keyboard shortcuts were acting up and stopped working on every other task. That’s fixed, now they work on all the other tasks too.

  • No more tricking you into thinking there are unread notifications when there are none. That bug was exterminated.

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 ⌨️


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 🔁


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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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


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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • You can once again keep track of your Karma 🧘 in the Productivity view while offline.
  • No more app crashes when trying to add a task.
  • It is now once again possible to move tasks to a section in the Inbox.

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!


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).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 👀


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. 🎯

  • 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. 🧘‍♀️

  • 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. 😌

  • 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.

  • 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


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.

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

  • 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.) 😵💫

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

  • 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.

Shortcut Update: Aug 11


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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 🧽


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

  • 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. 🎉

  • 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!

  • 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.⏰

Back By Popular Demand: July 14


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. 

  • 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. 💌

  • 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. 🙅‍♀️

  • 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.

  • 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. ✨
