Can I change my settings to only run todoist 5 days per week


Is it possibly to change the settings so that todoist only assesses my productivity from Monday to Friday - as it is de-motivating that my score drops over the weekend as i use this tool mostly for work. Is it also possible to freeze your score if you are ill?

At the moment, there is no setting to have Todoist work only in the weekday. That being said, if you only make tasks that are due during those 5 days, and are completed before the weekend, you will not lose any points.

For example, if you have a task due every day, you could change its due date from "every day" to "every weekday". Such task, when postponed or completed on Friday, will always change its date to Monday.

Though, if you postpone it, it will still remove some points from your karma. It's not the weekend that is causing you to lose points, but the postponing of tasks and tasks long over-due.

You can add the suggestion of a "pause" in our Votebox if you'd like: http://todoist.com/Vote/

I hope this helps :)
