yes, it will be really useful. I see it as a calendar where you can click on any future or past date and see what tasks were there.
on Jul 28, 2011 - 21:26
Please ensure that you hide the calendar somewhere in a corner so that it doesn't interfere with your current interface.Your current interace is very minimalist and hence very non-distracting and clutterfree.Please keep it that way
on Aug 03, 2011 - 02:52
Agree with the idea and agree with dalan!
on Aug 06, 2011 - 18:42
+1 for the idea and dalan's reqest
on Sep 26, 2011 - 02:58
Yep, would love to see a calendar on the Project homepage.
on Oct 13, 2011 - 08:53
I would love to see this, too! I love todoist, but the only drawback is the lacking of a calendar. It would also be nice to create different calendars with one overlaying calendar like in outlook.
on Oct 30, 2011 - 02:30
Maybe it could be an option to view tasks which have dates in calendar mode. In other words, you can view it when you want to, and then switch back to the list mode.
on Oct 31, 2011 - 01:02
At the moment, it is possible to query a date in the distant future, to see if anything is planned for that day. However, there is no context (ie what is happening x days before then, or x days after). One way of doing that would be to simply have a user preference that allows for +-x days to also be displayed when querying a specific date. However, if a full-blooded calendar view is added, then presumably this problem would be dealt with that way.While I think a calendar view would be a great way of keeping track of appointments, avoiding too many meeting commitments in one week etc, the limit with any graphical view is going to be with days where the number of tasks and/or appointments exceeds the space available. I suggest that the usability of the calendar is designed with this in mind at the outset. It should be evident in the display, that there are more appointments or tasks to view, and it should be extremely easy to "zoom" into a detailed view of the day itself, which could take one to the current chronological view in simple list form.
on Nov 16, 2011 - 07:49
This couldn't hurt but I don't really see how it's necessary. You can already view tasks by date in a list view, which is essentially the same thing. That said, I guess I would use a calendar view. I'm just concerned that it could come with additional (unwanted) functionality (e.g. due times), which could add bloat and reduce the simplicity of this, which is what I like so much about it.
on Nov 17, 2011 - 02:30
@Sam, I see the main benefit of a calendar view as being able to see at a glance how a particular month is looking in terms of planned appointments, deadlines etc. However, this would only be valid if all repeating tasks were shown on the views of future dates (please see my proposalhttps://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/176/). The current list view is inadequate for the above, because you can only display up to 31 days in advance of today. You can't, for example, say "1/5/2012 31 days", meaning "show me a 31 day view, starting 1 May". So, I can only work out my commitments for next May, by query each date singly in turn.
on Jan 11, 2012 - 13:41
I like it, but only if integrated with Google Calendar... I really don't need yet another calendar in another app to worry about! It'll never get used otherwise!
on Jan 20, 2012 - 03:02
I would use that too!
on May 12, 2012 - 10:35
Integration with OneNote will be useful for sharing notes and tasks seamlessly across both tools.
on Jun 05, 2012 - 10:07
I'm with those that worry about keeping the design absolutely minimal. I think the agenda view is good enough.
on Jun 12, 2012 - 14:04
I like the calendar view idea too, as a good way to graphically see many tasks over time. Also Google calendar integration would be great, and I like the overlaying calendar idea, maybe each project can have its own calendar that can be hidden or shown.
on Jun 13, 2012 - 00:29
Hello Jake,thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it. Please note that Todoist can be integrated with Google Calendar or any other calendar software supporting the iCal feed. This feature is accessible with Todoist Premium.Best regards,David
on Jun 13, 2012 - 12:59
Thank you, I was not aware of this as I do not have Todoist Premium, but thank you anyway.
on Jul 26, 2012 - 03:08
DRAG AND DROP CALENDAR VIEW:What would be really helpful would be a drag & drop calendar view. The standard task list could be seen at the top with a calendar below. By dragging the tasks to the calendar, I could manage my week / month / year easily. If there are recurrent dates for a task, the recurrences can continue from there.That way, if i miss a deadline, i have an easy way to reassign the date without having to make it recurrent or going in to edit each task.Thanks,Joel
on Jul 26, 2012 - 03:12
In fact, a button to pull up all overdue tasks for reassignment by dragging onto the calendar would be great.The calendar doesnt even have to be a grid, it could simply be headers with thevdays of the week and allow me to slide the tasks under the headings just like you can in project view except you are dragging to due dates rather than topics or tasks.Joel
on Jul 26, 2012 - 03:26
Hello Joel,you can use the drag & drop feature while in "7 days" or "7 days, overdue" or any other view and reassign them (change their dates) dates by dropping them to a different day.Best regards,David
on Aug 03, 2012 - 02:13
Finally! Thanks todoist. I have been waiting for something like this for years :) There is however one crucial thing missing. There should be some quick way to add task to some concrete day in "calendar" view. (At least until we will get real calendar module :) Only when i see all my tasks in context of week, i realise, i have to do something in some concrete day in future. Now i have to switch back to some list and add tasks, and also asign date. Wouldnt it be great if i can do it in "calendar" view by clicking to add task in concrete day?
on Aug 03, 2012 - 02:50
Hello Martin,a similar feature is already available - the "Quick Add". It doesn't work exactly as you've described and the future calendar module may have such option, however for now, if you add a task using the Quick Add (the plus in the upper right corner or the shortcut Ctrl+Q) and include a due date within it, you'll be redirected to the day you've set the due date to, to see what other tasks are due on this day.Best regards,David
on Aug 03, 2012 - 03:41
I know about quick add but honestly its not as quick as you call it :) It makes all the difference when i add task in some concrete day row and i dont need to click anywhere else because it automatically add date info. But thanks for answer. I will wait for calendar module. In my dream Todoist i want to just click on a day, add task (date info is automatically included) and maybe choose a folder (or if not, automatically add task to first folder in order or to move it to Inbox folder) That would be "quick add" for me :) Thanks again for answer
on Aug 03, 2012 - 03:55
Ok, one more thing, i used term "dream Todoist". This is what my "dream todoist" calendar would looks like:Calendar in grid view as we are used from any other calendars. If its too difficult to developement list view as it is now. But PLEASE with clearly separated weeks (maybe some line or some other divider) different color for weekend days, and some really big divider for months. Everything like we are used from standard calendars. They dont looks like that for no reason. Dream come true would be if any list could be used like filter of tasks that are displayed in calendar. For example in "calendar view" i will have "Freetime" list and "Work" list and it would be great if i could easily see whats only in my freetime calendar for this month. If therell be also used color coding from lists i could easily see what work goals (red color) and what freetime events (green color) are ahead of me. It would be also great to have filterable calendars from tasks lists because we could use it to see project developement with milestones etc. Ok, i have been procrastinating for long enough, back to work :)
on Aug 03, 2012 - 04:19
Martin,thank you very much for your feedback, we will certainly consider it for our calendar module :)Best regards,David
on Sep 05, 2012 - 01:51
very nice idea.

on Oct 17, 2012 - 17:09
It will be nice, I'm sure
on Nov 24, 2012 - 05:10
YOu guys could still make the integrated calendar option something that is only available for premium members... but it would be nice to see a calendar in todoist instead of having to reply on an external one like google calendar.I'm sure you guys could cook something up that looked awesome!
on Nov 28, 2012 - 04:10
I would be happy to ditch Google Calendar and use Todoist for task and event management.
on Dec 02, 2012 - 21:14
I've tried to create a complete GTD system with the integration of Todoist or Nozbe with Google Tasks, Calendar, Outlook and Evernote, but still it does not work as I want it to. Mainly because of the fact that Google Tasks only syncs once a day or something, and because of some trouble with time zone support and DST.Now I've started my own programming project using API's for various services to finally be able to ditch all the half baked solutions out there.If Todoist would support folders and a working calendar, I might not bother to go through with it.
on Dec 13, 2012 - 11:55
Agree - that works with the Outlook Plugin (adds to Outlook Calendar).
on Dec 19, 2012 - 14:01
2 way selective sync with iCal #FTW My scheduled life is in my calendar. Would be much easier to see it in my todoist list. Calendar items do affect my tasks
on Dec 24, 2012 - 09:06
Good idea.This is a barrier to use this for me intead if outlook.
on Dec 27, 2012 - 12:06
Great idea! Would like the calendar to be able to hide when not in use and would like each day's scheduled meetings, etc be on the "Today" page so I can see at a glance. Also would be nice to have this calendar sync with Google Calendar.
on Jan 11, 2013 - 08:15
This feature will make Todoist really THE best personal to-do manager.
on Jan 11, 2013 - 11:13
Yes. I'm noticing bugs using Todoist with other calendars (iCal and Google Calendar) - items are being placed in the wrong days. This is of course concerning because I use Todoist to manage important deadlines. I'd hope to at least be able to trust an internal Todoist calendar.
on Jan 15, 2013 - 02:39
I was just wondering when the calendar module will be released, what is the status of development?Thank you
on Jan 15, 2013 - 07:18
Hello Piotr,We're working on this feature, but unfortunately, we can't give you any estimate on when it will be available. It will be worth the wait, though :)Best regards,David
on Jan 23, 2013 - 02:17
YES EXTRIMLY AGREE WITH. B/C WE WILL ABLE TO vew our not bound time so will plan well efectively.
on Jan 26, 2013 - 10:33
It would be great if you we can identify each week number of the year in the calendar. Google calendar doesn´t has this feature and I think many people organize by week.Thanks.César.
on Jan 29, 2013 - 10:28
With such good integration with google calendar I'm not sure why efforts should be spent on this... Honestly, sure I would enjoy that, but the google calendar functionality is quite good and this is a task application not an event calendar application... imho.Maybe readers of this votebox will find interest in voting for some other features as well - here -> http://todoist.com/Vote_iOS/showProposal/42/
on Mar 19, 2013 - 22:17
This feature wouldn't hurt but i think the existing infrastructure is already great!Just in reply to César: you can display week numbers in Google Calendar by clicking Other calendars -> Browse Interesting Calendars -> More -> Week Numbers. voila!
on Mar 20, 2013 - 23:18
yes please, with drag and drop, if possible
on Mar 30, 2013 - 22:11
I am anxious for this feature.And, if it's possible, I would like to suggest to add events that are not a task, its just a event that always happens and don't need to check it as done, but you need to see it there, like schedules.
With drag and drop! (: jajaja
on Mar 31, 2013 - 15:06
this suggestion created in 2011, when the calendar will be ready ?
on Mar 31, 2013 - 15:59
Hello Roushdy,As always, we work on any feature until we're satisfied with the results and think that it's good enough for release and will also meet your expectations. Although this suggestion was added in 2011, we've started working on this feature later, but at this point it shouldn't take too long for it to be released.Best regards,David
on Apr 01, 2013 - 09:48
That can be a non premium feature! :)
on Apr 02, 2013 - 07:50
Premium feature only. But I would love it!
on Apr 07, 2013 - 08:07
I'd like this a lot, yes.
on Apr 09, 2013 - 07:38
on Apr 13, 2013 - 11:22
Please allow the calendar view to be an option that people aren't required to use. Perhaps a hidden tab on the side that would pop out once you click on it or something, or something similar to how the Windows clock in the default bottom right corner of everyone's screen is the way you get to the calendar.
on Apr 16, 2013 - 14:31
Agree with a lot of the comments on here. Please keep the minimalistic look. No clutter! But it would also be nice to view tasks integrated with a synced Google Calendar.
on Apr 16, 2013 - 14:42
Please start clader v aseiw as soon as PossibleePlease ...........700+++
on Apr 17, 2013 - 05:06
what are the bareares of this importent work???how much time more required???
on Apr 17, 2013 - 06:54
Hello Zan,We're sorry for the delays. As always, our goal is to provide an awesome high quality feature, but it takes time. Once we have any news or previews, we'll announce them on our social media channels.Best regards,David
on Apr 17, 2013 - 08:44
It means we cuold wait many years???
on Apr 17, 2013 - 10:41
Zan,No, you won't have to wait years :) We simply can't give you any timeframe because we don't have any and we don't want to promise you that it will be launched at a certain date and then not keep our promise.Best regards,David
on Apr 21, 2013 - 21:19
Yes! At least unlock the iCal feed for non-premium members until this is released-in my opinion this is an integral feature.
on Apr 22, 2013 - 18:30
This is the one thing missing from my workflow! I neeeed a monthly calendar style interface that I can switch to to make sure I'm not forgetting about meetings. I don't want to have to use two separate programs :(
on Apr 26, 2013 - 12:50
I would rather see tighter integration with Google calendar than a replacement of google calendar
on Apr 27, 2013 - 18:08
I was first going to say that you have this calendar if you link to the google one for example.But then I looked at todoist homepage and realized the waste of space... yes bringing a calendar would be nice.
on May 03, 2013 - 12:50
I agree with the various comments for better integration with existing, external calendar services rather than diluting the clear, simple interface and product focus of Todoist. I personally don't use Todoist as a calendar and a natively integrated one would take away from the clean simplicity of Todoist.
on May 08, 2013 - 08:56
I would want to be able to link my calenders in Outlook, Lotus note and Google to my Todolist
on May 13, 2013 - 15:55
GOOD BY TODOIST,I AM VERY SORRY TO LEAVE TODOIST BECOUSE MANTAIN TOW ORGNIZER IS VERY DEFICULT,TODOIST VERY PRODUCTIVE BUT CALANDER WEEK/MONTH WEIV IS MUST TO PLAN TO KNOW FREE TIME TO PUT NEW WORKS.EXTREMLY WAITING CLANDER MODULE OF TODOIST "LOYLE OF TODOIST"
on May 18, 2013 - 02:40
I think it is a really good idea. Maybe add clock features too :)
on May 21, 2013 - 12:22
I've been waiting.... for a long time... I do use google cal. The problem is that it is not updated in a timely fashion. Same thing when I was using astrid. It is Google's fault. But the wait is unbearable.
on May 22, 2013 - 12:36
Guys, first of all i'd like to thank you for perfect product. I've been a Todoist user for a year.It is the best thing i've ever used before.The calendar and THE ENDING TIME of each task makes life really easer. With current version of Todoist I can't predict when i'm busy or free.It is BADDLY NEEDED for me to make a quick look to cal and say 'yes, there is a gap, i can do it on this time".Really, you are going to lose me as a client very soon, because it is getting extremly unsuitable for me... and maybe for a lot os others.Cheers.
on May 28, 2013 - 15:11
Would be great if you could add a start time and an end time to a project so that when it's added to a calendar - you can really tell where your time gaps are. WHEN will this be done?!
on Jun 02, 2013 - 05:50
it's in progress since very long time, when it will be ready !!!!!?
on Jun 06, 2013 - 19:18
A calendar would be nice for those that do not have access to an iCal capable calendar. I use the iCalendar feed and I can view all of my Todoist items in my Google calendar along with my other calendar items. That works well for me.
on Jun 07, 2013 - 16:57
Yes David, i do have an access to iCal, Google Cal etc. THERE IS NO THE 'ENDING' TIME, so every task is displayed like an one-hour-task in a calendar, even if I want to schedule and mark this task as a 5-hour-task. Again, this is about a task duration. While i cant edit the ending time i see the gaps on my calendar view, because it considers the task beginning parameter only. Hope it is clear now what is wrong. Cheers.
on Jun 07, 2013 - 18:56
John, I see your point. I imagine that would be very frustrating.
on Jun 09, 2013 - 04:32
Hey,I use Todoist as my project managment tool.I cant wait to get a calendar view so i can see in on look (week, month, year) the milestones i set and deadlinesOther then that, Amazing tool!!
on Jun 18, 2013 - 14:47
Yes please. This is the one thing that makes me want to move over to TeuxDeux. If you could replicate that kind of calendar-style display but still using Todoist's many features, that would be amazing. (TeuxDeux is extremely minimalist)
on Jun 19, 2013 - 03:25
Обязательно календарь с возможностью синхронизации (переноса писем) с почтовым агентом
on Jun 19, 2013 - 10:16
Where I need help regarding a calendar is to block time associated with Todoist tasks. Todoist tells me everything that I need to do and when it is due, but I need help making sure I get time blocked on my Outlook calendar to actually complete all of the tasks by their due dates.Some kind of view that let me provide a est. duration for tasks, and then drag and drop them as blocks onto my Outlook calendar to block out time would be cool. Then I could easily see when I am overloaded....Thanks!
on Jun 20, 2013 - 12:44
Thank you for working on this :) It is not something that other task management apps usually have, though it is highly necessary.
on Jun 25, 2013 - 05:18
Looking forward to this. Funnily, you seem to have inspired the currently best calendar developer for Android (Business Calendar) with their task manager, that they are now working on.If you took some great ideas from their calendar (dumping the settings clutter), it would be awesome.
on Jun 28, 2013 - 07:27
Hi! How long we still had to wait for these opportunities?
on Jun 28, 2013 - 08:08
Hello,Unfortunately, we can't give you any estimates when this feature will be added. There are many great changes coming to Todoist this year, but it's hard to tell when will which be added, some may be rolled out sooner than others.Best regards,David
on Jun 28, 2013 - 08:21
If it's added this year, it is good news. :)Todoist is a great product already, that's why we expect the best from new developments ;)
on Jun 29, 2013 - 03:25
Thanks David. Now I see. There is no planned date if developers team is saying «there is no date». Tired of waiting.I'm not going to prolong a premium account though Todoist was the best business tool for me for 48 months. Unfortunately I'm moving to Google Calendar though it's not even half of todoist' functionality.I'm very, very dissapointed....
on Jun 29, 2013 - 08:11
@John - you and me both. My biggest gripe is the iPad app, which we have been promised for... I don't know, the past 6 months. It's getting kind of ridiculous. Todoist is a great app and because of that, I rely on it greatly. I plan my life with it. I NEED it to work in a way that adapts to my workflow, and that requires a nice iPad app.I've already switched over to TeuxDeux (mainly because of it's date-focused interface) and don't plan to renew my Todoist Premium account.
on Jun 29, 2013 - 08:27
Disappointed here too, I really like the rest of Todoist. But I need a calendar to make it viable for my workflow so I'll be looking for a replacement.
on Jun 29, 2013 - 08:54
Well, I have to say I am among the disappointed users. I had a few suggestions on new features and was directed by the staff to make a new entry for vote. I thought that was a great feature. Well, the most voted item showed no progress after so long. So last time when I had a time zone suggestion, I did not even bother to create a new entry. I see no point in voting either. It was all just a show. The develops work on their own ides (like the Karma) and don't really care what the users want. Why bother????
on Jun 29, 2013 - 11:29
We, as users, could do some shortcut until the Todoist's team developers build something. If we found a tool that works with todoist and implements a calendar, could help? I am disposed to do that! So, what kind of calendar is this about?
on Jun 29, 2013 - 11:31
But, it is "in progress". We have just to wait. But, even so, i am disposed.
on Jun 29, 2013 - 11:36
Hello Everyone,We are very sorry that it's taking long. We never set due-dates for the reason of not being late, also so that we can concentrate on the quality of the features. We do take our suggestions in the Votebox serious, and do plan on implementing the most voted on ones.We also have many other bugs and features that are being worked on, and it can be hard sometimes to get features to people when they want them.Be assured this is being worked on, and it's going to be awesome. It just might take some time.Once again, sorry for the wait.Thanks for the interest,Brendon.
on Jun 29, 2013 - 12:31
Brendon, thank you.But who cares? You heard the demand from your EXISTING customers and you better give them the enquired thing! :) It's 10 times harder to bring the new client than to satisfy the existing one. That's how you usually do business. Why shouldn't you hire a few more developers to stop losing money? It doesn't worth it economically? Maybe. But you'll protect your brand and customer relationship.I'm sorry for saying this in such manner but as a project manager and a business owner I'm really surprised with such attitude to the client database. I expected to hear something like «yeah, we are sorry, we are adding required devs to make this feature asap right at this moment». Or, «Guys, you are the priority right now. We are stopping our carma and other meaningless whistles and bells and start doing the really needed things».Brendon, I'm frustrated to hear «We never set due-dates for the reason of not being late» from creators of the PLANNING TOOL. Excuse my advice but maybe you guys use Todoist and Wedoist not to fail the planning? LOL (sorry)Again, my twenty dollars make no difference but I know at least 10 people who do not want to buy the Premium and use Todoist because of a calendar absence.Cheers.
on Jun 29, 2013 - 12:33
I left already.Good Luck
on Jun 29, 2013 - 13:11
I'm waiting since 6 months, and I think I will wait for sometime before leaving, but I think if this feature didn't come online soon todoist will really lose many customers
on Jun 29, 2013 - 14:39
This is a business with strong competition, so, what stops people from leaving while preferring to post their expectations and/or disappointments here?It should be the fact that Todoist is up there with the very good taskers, and it is hard to find better alternatives and do the switch without making serious concessions.In my case the quality of the android app together with the design of the project/subproject system is what keeps me here.
on Jun 29, 2013 - 16:37
Hello,John, we're very sorry for the delays in the development of this feature. Our primary goal is and always will be to create a great app that would on one hand have powerful features, but on the other hand be very easy to use and simple. Unfortunately, it's much more difficult to create something that's functional, clear and simple, it's much easier to add options and buttons and instead of an improvement, add more and more elements making something as supposedly simple as a to-do list, very difficult to get around with. That's the reason why we don't post deadlines -- it takes time for any part design choice to reach the point when it's really good and not "just there".That said, the entire purpose of this feature is to have an easy fast and clean overview as a calendar while making it useful and functional. We're working on it, but again - until it's a great feature, not until we code something as fast as possible that may look more or less like a calendar.We understand your frustration, no one likes to wait for anything, but we can assure you, if you like the way Todoist works and looks now, we do everything we can to make any new feature fit in seamlessly without breaking the current experience.You've mentioned earlier that you would like to see if there's a spot in your schedule to know if you can add a task there and in order to make this possible while working on a full calendar module, we've already added a task count to our mini-calendar. When you hover over any day, you see how many tasks are scheduled for this day and the color bars of the projects that they're associated to. That's of course just a small addition to at least make it possible to see quickly if there's something scheduled on a day, how much and from which project.Again, we're sorry that it takes so long to make this feature happen, but we value all our customers and your trust that by choosing Todoist, you appreciate the simplistic and clean feel, design and functionality of it and that everything we do, we do with quality in mind.Best regards,David
on Jun 29, 2013 - 17:24
David,your comment almost made me cry :) I will keep this as an example of the correct answer. I highly appreciate your customer relationship skills. My apologies for being rude.David, could you please at least give us an approximate date when you roll it out? Are we talking about a month, a quarter, half of year?Thanks again.
on Jun 29, 2013 - 17:34
David, thanks for the reply. As a user who loves Todoist for being "functional, clear and simple" -- and who, for myself, has no desire for calendar integration (though I appreciate that others do want it) -- I appreciate your reply and your company's approach. Keep it functional, clear and simple!
on Jun 29, 2013 - 18:25
John,It's hard to even give an estimate. Each time we do, something comes up that postpones it and leads to disappointment on both sides. We're currently working on some great changes for Todoist which will result in making a calendar module much better fitting and exactly as we've imagined it while right now, before these changes, it would not be that good so sometimes the order of implementing features is so important that it decides if they can be implemented and made as good as we though and you expect.That said, the changes I'm referring to will be implemented first and "prepare" Todoist for such implementation as the calendar so 1-2 months are unfortunately unlikely for the calendar itself, but likely for the other big change. We hope to get it all done this year, though but again, we would prefer not to make a promise (estimate) we're not sure we can keep, but we can promise one thing - quality (of any feature) will always come first :)Best regards,David

I couldn't wait, I ma go back to Todoist if a seam in my work comes up after the new features come out. I started a new job that is heavily task and list oriented and my ipad and iphone are equal as entry points. I needed a dedicated ipad app and a calendar.
on Jul 06, 2013 - 16:24
Ditto, I'm using a project manager app provided by another company while I wait for this to be implemented. Too many things and I've found I work better when I can see everything on a calendar. Godspeed Todoist see you in a year!

Would really like to see it integrated with google calendar, or even just a link to the ical to import into google calendar.
on Jul 08, 2013 - 16:29
Actually from reading through this thread I see I can already import to google calendar..yay!
on Jul 08, 2013 - 16:31
Hello Tash,Todoist already offers an iCal link to show your tasks in Google Calendar. Please take a look at this video to see how to use it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzGubOy8GuEBest regards,David

1107 votes, proposed more than 2 years ago, in progress... what's status? ETA?
on Jul 20, 2013 - 11:48
All I can say is that it's a great shame more progress isn't being made on this. You have a lot of premium subscribers - if you're not completing work quickly enough - hire more developers. All I say say right now is that it's quite likely you'll be losing me and many others once Any.DO Cal hits the Android scene.Shame, I greatly like Todoist but it *REALLY* needs to be hooking in to calendars better than an iCal feed.
on Jul 20, 2013 - 12:49
Hello,We're very sorry for the delays. As mentioned earlier, it's not a matter of lack of resources, but about the future we see for Todoist and also the way how the implementation of certain features makes sense.In order for a calendar module to work as easily as the rest of the service and be a useful and simple tool, the service must go through some other changes after which such addition will be possible. We're working hard on all the other changes and you'll see them very soon and then we'll be able to add more features such as the calendar module and avoid adding less useful new features which will be not user-friendly and work not as expected.Best regards,David
on Jul 24, 2013 - 04:23
I'm currently using Todoist for logging events and viewing these on iCal... the major issue is that once these events or items are ticked off, they disappear from your calendar meaning you are unable to view past events. This 'calendar' module will hopefully help address this?
on Jul 30, 2013 - 05:47
Yes, good idea, would like to see and use this when its ready. (I agree with Carl E. had similar issue)
on Aug 05, 2013 - 10:45
This would be very helpful for me.
on Aug 07, 2013 - 10:41
I agree that a calendar view will be wonderful... and frankly, worth the wait. I have tried numerous other systems and always come back to ToDoist. It really is the best. I'm not leaving and hope to use ToDoist many years into the future. And once that calendar is integrated, I won't need anything other than ToDoist. I hate having multiple windows open -- e-mail, calendar, ToDoist, WorkFlowy. If I could have it all except e-mail in ToDoist, I'd be one happy camper.
on Aug 10, 2013 - 09:40
This is a no brainer and would elevate the product to the next level far above the competition.
on Aug 18, 2013 - 09:16
отличная идея, ждем реализации!!!!!!!!
on Aug 20, 2013 - 12:25
I join others asking to try to keep it clean and simple as the rest.A calendar will add a lot of complexity. Maybe an idea if adding a calendar, is to have the option of the task to show in the calendar or not, at a fixed time or not. When I used palm pilot many years ago, I had the option to set appointments for specific slots of the day, but I could also just have to do's as a list showing at the bottom of that specific day, that was very useful. Sometimes you set to do's for a date, just because completing the task will move forward other tasks, but you don't need to complete it at a specific time of the day.Good luck!
on Aug 21, 2013 - 10:11
For what it's worth, I don't want a separate calendaring space dedicated to my Todoist activity. My calendaring world is contained within my Google calendar space, and that's where I want everything to stay. I'm fine with a dedicated Todoist calendar in Google, but that's about as separate as I want it it to be.
on Aug 23, 2013 - 10:06
I respect the need for different workflows, but for me adding a calendar would be against my work patterns and would possibly add unnecessary clutter to the beautiful simplicity of Todoist.I use a calendar for appointments and Todoist for tasks.If implemented, please keep it out of the way until needed or even better an option to be toggled on or off.Thanks!
on Aug 23, 2013 - 10:23
I understand the concerns of some people regarding implementing a calendar. I can't imagine they would add a calendar that would detract from the elegance of ToDoist's interface. For me, I'd like the be able to schedule appointments within ToDoist and get rid of my Google Calendar. I don't like to show my ToDoist things on the G Cal because it clutters things up. For me, it's about having ONE place to go for nearly everything and not having to maintain some things in a separate calendar... and minimize the number of tabs I have to keep open. I want to be able to look at a calendar when needed but not have it interfere.I trust that whatever they add will fit in nicely.
on Aug 23, 2013 - 10:36
Hello,We can assure you that when the calendar module will be implemented it will certainly be something you can view only if you want and would not affect the current UI and design at all. For example, it could be something like the help button in the top-right corner - there could be a calendar icon too, which you could use to toggle the calendar view on/off if you want.Best regards,David
on Aug 23, 2013 - 11:34
Dear - if todoist is fully synced with Google Calendar that should be fine.
on Aug 27, 2013 - 08:37
Not very easy system setup recurring dates. I want to do every Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:10. How is type??
on Aug 27, 2013 - 08:45
Hello Andrey,To set a recurring date for these days and times, please type: "ev Tue, Thu, Wed, Fri at 9:10" into the due date field.Best regards,David
on Aug 27, 2013 - 09:01
where you can see all the characters for the date field?
on Aug 27, 2013 - 09:52
Andrey,You can find a list of supported date formats here: https://todoist.com/Help/timeInsert or in the "date reference" in our mobile apps.Also, please note that aside from the shortcuts I've used above, you can also simply type the date using full words: "every tuesday, thursday, wednesday, friday at 9:10"Best regards,David
on Aug 29, 2013 - 10:02
I've just switched from PlanPlus' (Franklin Covey) system and LOVE Todoist....YES, a calendar for navigation would be helpful, but also the ability to drag and drop a task to a different date on the calendar would also be a useful piece of the calendar function. It exists in PlanPlus and has for years.
on Aug 30, 2013 - 23:23
would like to have a small calendar popup for date and time when setting reminders, rather than having to manually input the date.
on Sep 01, 2013 - 12:04
whatever you do, please don't add clutter to Todoist.
on Sep 02, 2013 - 11:09
Agree, no more clutter. This is simply asking for a small pop-up calendar in the reminders section the same as comes up when setting a due date in ToDoist.
on Sep 04, 2013 - 05:38
Such utter nonsense!I don't want a date selector @jwgranzow and neither do many others here - how utterly basic and uninteresting is that?!What I'm after is a Trello Calendar style setup but hopefully a little less plain. I think Todoist could learn a lot from Trello which I have subsequently switched to for the time being.
on Sep 04, 2013 - 09:51
if todoist is fully synced with Google Calendar that should be fine.
on Sep 04, 2013 - 14:05
vote for Aliã Bianco suggestion
on Sep 06, 2013 - 04:48
Allow Google calendar viewing (within the Todoist environment) would be fine which should show also my Todoist tasks/todo's.
on Sep 09, 2013 - 10:46
Glad to see this is in progress, but I sure hope the calendar view will show all repeating instances. E.g., if I have a task that repeats every Monday, I would expect to see it in the calendar every Monday, not just the first Monday. Otherwise, it just isn't a very accurate/useful calendar.
on Sep 10, 2013 - 06:22
I would like an integrated calendar, however I also agree with others that the minimalist look of Todoist is a big plus.So there should be an option to see the calendar view, but not allow that to become the default, ie you have to request it each time.Another solution may be to set up a Todoist calendar within one's Google Calendar options ie a special Todoist by Date Calendar.
on Sep 26, 2013 - 19:45
just wanted to throw my "anti-vote" into the discussion.the current ui and display is so clean I'd hate to see it get crufted up with all the add'l screens and settings it would require.when you NEED a calendar, USE a calendar, simple :-)
on Oct 08, 2013 - 09:39
I am totally for calendar functionality and waiting for it as it is now impossible to see all the tasks divided into projects with their assigned colors in the weekly or monthly view. Now I export tasks to thuderbird or google calendar but is doesn't work smoothly and it lacks the different projects colors that are very important for me. When can we expect such feature as I see it is in progress?
on Oct 08, 2013 - 11:34
If the interface worked with Google Calendar by both synch-ng AND setting dates this would not be required! This is why I paid for premium and neither work! :-(
on Oct 10, 2013 - 09:40
IMHO, Trello is horrible and should not be the poster child for Todoist's calendar implementation. You can only calendar one "board" at a time (dumb) is no way to filter out any of the "noise" by labels, etc. What I would like to be able to do is see tasks from ALL my areas/roles/categories/projects/"boards"/whatever in a single view, and filter out what I don't want to see. So following the FranklinCovey methodology, if I create "roles" as a "project" in Todoist ... i.e., one project for Father, one for Boyfriend, one for Employee (w/ subprojects for each of my work projects), what I DON'T want to do is have separate calendars for each. I want to be able to look at my calendar and see EVERYTHING that I need to do that day in calendar form, and have the ability to select a filter to see only work stuff when I am at work, and even slice and dice down to a specific context if necessary. Weekplan.net has a much better implementation in my opinion, although it doesn't support labels.Ultimately, too, what I think would be cool is if Todoist's tasks showed up in an "all day" format in the calendar (like Outlook - at the top of that day), based on due date set in the task list ... and then as a user I could drag and drop to specific timeframes during the day. I think Opus Domini for iPad/iPhone does an excellent job at this, and moreover it syncs with events on your calendar to show you what meetings you already have scheduled and therefore what your open timeslots are in which to drag your tasks.I have confidence that Todoist can make a feature-packed calendar module and keep the minimalist UI that we all love about it and it will be awesome when it comes out. Still, as someone, like many of you, who has tried various todo apps ... I am always left frustrated by the hamster wheel of "app A does this thing really well, but sucks at this other thing ... app B does what app A can't do, but lacks this really important feature ... app C has that feature but can't do either of what app A or B do really well ... etc" and it goes on and on. For example, I absolutely love many of the features and layout of Week Plan's web app but it's not a complete calendar and their Android app is completely unusable. Todoist has an amazing Android app and frankly it is so good that it kind of makes the original web app look a bit outdated, and calendar is still in development. I like that the new FranklinCoveyTasks has a nice looking web app as well as an Android app that shows promise. I love that it syncs directly with Outlook. But it doesn't support subtasks or labels, and the Android UI is kinda ugly, and a BIG drawback is that recurring tasks cannot be one-touch postponed like Todoist. So if I am traveling on business for a couple weeks and I've got something I ordinarily do at home every day as a recurring thing ... I now would have to complete 10 instances of that task and the completed tasks still show ... so I would then need to go into each task and delete it. Way too much tapping.I've personally been on a 5 year odyssey to find the holy grail of todo apps for me and haven't come across it yet. Todoist is VERY CLOSE for me, but calendar module is key and patience is wearing a tad thin. Nonetheless, I give them the benefit of the doubt because they are very active developers and listen to user feedback (unlike Any.do - dropped them because they are arrogant and never listen to anyone) and that goes a long way.
on Oct 11, 2013 - 04:19
I'm leaving to Trello.This development takes AGES
on Oct 12, 2013 - 04:06
it seems Trello is a really good choice - looks like I'm moving too/
on Oct 12, 2013 - 06:40
i think that todoist is better
on Oct 16, 2013 - 14:02
Yes!! Definitely! This is one feature that I miss from one of the apps I used before.
on Nov 05, 2013 - 05:13
@Todoist - any updates on this?
on Nov 05, 2013 - 07:17
Hello Todd,We're in very advanced stages of implementing the next big changes incl. sharing and UI improvements and after that we can proceed with further implementations.Best regards,David
on Nov 05, 2013 - 10:08
"further implementations."?? I thought it was almost ready. Two years and and nothing?This is disappointing.
on Nov 07, 2013 - 13:44
What would really be cool is to integrate it with Google Calendar; i.e., it would become one of the ical calendars you could choose to display or not. Then it would also work the same way with the Calendar app on the Mac.
on Nov 07, 2013 - 14:41
Hello David,Todoist already offers integration with iCal. With Todoist Premium you can import your tasks into any calendar supporting the iCal format as shown in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzGubOy8GuEBest regards,David
on Nov 10, 2013 - 07:04
yes please. Other apps like Zendone provide real-time two-way sync with Google Calendar. Can't you include this?
on Nov 10, 2013 - 07:05
on Nov 11, 2013 - 12:08
I would really love to see the tasks, that take a lot of time bigger in the calendar then the tasks, that only take ten minutes. The ical integration does not work like that and is not usefull for me. Actually, I don't want to have the tasks in ical, just want to have a different sight of my list, where I can see, what takes much and what less time. And if that might be ok for one day.
on Nov 12, 2013 - 06:53
I'm all for a calendar so long as it integrates with Exchange/iCal calendar. Last thing I need is one more place to keep track of things!
on Nov 14, 2013 - 22:17
A calendar view is essential, but it would only be useful if you could selectively filter what gets displayed in the calendar. Users would be used to this from other calendar programs (you can make different calendars, overlay them, show "events" or "tasks" or both, etc.)Thanks for a great product. With a calendar view it will be perfect.
on Nov 18, 2013 - 06:03
I just wonder whether this is pushing Todoist to replace existing calendars, which already have all the pure calendar functionality most of us will ever want. I agree with Bob Peery - I don't need any more places to check, the point of using Todoist is reduce the number of places I need to track.Wouldn't it be better to concentrate on good, interactive integration with existing calendar functionality ? (be it Google, Exchange or whatever)
on Nov 18, 2013 - 06:19
Dear David - there no "existing calendars" :)
on Nov 18, 2013 - 06:45
I just want to plan my workdays. And therefore, it is helpfull to see, how much time a task might take, if it is a quick or long task. I want to plan, whether I have to do something today, tomorrow or next week, and if there is a real chance to do all that. Therefore, it is also important, that I can split a task into several work-units. It does not help me to only have the deadline, I have to plan the days, I will really work on it. And me, I don't want to mix my tasks with my calendar for meetings etc. - but that is my personal preference.
on Nov 21, 2013 - 06:11
I don't see why there is so much objection to this?Have a 'Calendar' toggle in settings. Surely with that in place the people who want it will use it and the people who don't... wont. Doesn't seem to be any justification for such verbose objection.
on Nov 21, 2013 - 06:44
Hi rousdhy - I meant Google Calendar / Exchange :-)Hi Christopher - I'm not really objecting, verbosely or otherwise - as you say, those who don't want it don't need to use it. But I was suggesting that as development resource will always be limited, and I'd rather the effort was put into calendar integration.
on Nov 23, 2013 - 15:39
Please hurry, I swear my life gets more disorganized each extra day there is no calendar function.....
on Nov 24, 2013 - 21:13
I can't agree more with everyone....for me, this would be the piece that would truly make Todoist complete. Having to toggle between the calendar and Todoist is not the greatest and as a user of Google Calendar, the current webcal solution is not that useful.Glad the team is making this happen, can't wait!
on Dec 01, 2013 - 12:51
+1 Elke that's precisely how I envision as well
on Dec 01, 2013 - 13:00
Since Fantastical now syncs with the Reminders app, and both are on the Mac and IOS, they may have beat Todoist to the punch. Can see task and calendar items in Fantastical.
on Dec 02, 2013 - 14:54
Actually at the bare minimum, all I really want to see are my appointments for the day in my task list ... and then simply drag and drop my tasks around those appointments as needed. So, for example, let's say I have appointments at 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., and I have tasks A, B, C, D, & E to do that day. Task A is my highest priority, so I drag that to the top because I want to knock it out before my 10:00. Then I can drag B & C to between my 10:00 and my 3:00, and lastly tasks D & E are personal errands that I can do on my ride home, so I drag those down below my 3:00. Voila ... I have the whole day in one snapshot, and having the flexibility to use drag and drop to organize my day in the way that makes the most sense to me without having to click into each task and change the time, etc. which is very time consuming and cumbersome.Conversely, if it's a heavy meeting day and I can see there is no way that I can realistically accomplish what I'd planned to because my calendar started filling up ... I can simply postpone the tasks that won't be able to get to on that particular day.David and Brendon - does Todoist's planned implementation of a calendar module allow for that sort of fluidity? If it did that would be fantastic.Cheers,Todd
on Dec 02, 2013 - 20:54
This would be a great addition!
on Dec 03, 2013 - 00:10
I hope it will be ready soon otherwise I don't think I'm going to renew my account.
