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

Agree with the idea and agree with dalan!
on Aug 06, 2011 - 18:42
+1 for the idea and dalan's reqest

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.

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.

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

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 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.
