Navigates to the tomorrows tasks


Hi all,

I am using Firefox plug-in. When I add a new task, it will automatically navigate the Todoist to the tomorrow's tasks.

When I add a task for Jun 6, it automatically navigates to the Jun 7's tasks.

Everytime when I add a new task, I had to navigate ToDoist to the current day's tasks via clicking "Show Projects > Today".

How can I prevent this? I don't want it to be changing the current query.

Hello Mesut,

unfortunately, this can't be changed right now, but it only happens if you use the Quick Add option (Ctrl+Q). You can use the "Show projects" link at the top, enter the project you'd like to add tasks to and add them from there. This will not redirect you to a different view and also allow you to add multiple tasks at once without leaving the project.

Still, we appreciate your feedback and may consider adding this behavior even for the quick add option. You're welcome to add your suggestion to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/

Best regards,

Hi David,

Is there any spesific reason to not to fix this or any spesific use case that makes that behaviour reasonable?

There are lots of todolist solutions, but I am using ToDoIst because it is really easy to use and requires really less efforts to add new tasks and follow them. I am and I guess most of your users are using Quick Add option for adding tasks.

I think this behaviour really contradicts with this "easy-to-use" argument.

the reason for this feature is that the Quick Add option is usually only used to schedule a single task and see what other tasks are due at the same day so it won't collide with other things you might have already scheduled for this day/time.

We will surely consider your feedback in future development, though as we constantly try to improve Todoist to meet all our Customers' needs.

Best regards,
