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

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.

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.

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.

U

Replied 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 proposal
https://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.

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

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

David Trey staff
Replied 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.

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?

David Trey staff
Replied 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

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

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 :)

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.

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.

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....

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.

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)

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.

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

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

As many people here, I am trying to use todoist as THE GTD tool. The calendar will be the final touch to have everything here, because the integration with google calendar is not a good option.

One more request, I use an android tablet and an ubuntu desktop, it would be great if both are fully interconnected with the calendar, and both can be used offline.

Meanwhile, do you know of other calendar in "the market" that have better integration with todoist ? (Google is a bad option, mainly google fault).

Looking forward for this development!

Not only the ability to view tasks on a calendar, but also the ability to drag and drop task(s) to a small visual calendar to assign or set dates would be very helpful.

I would like to have todoist display a small calendar to drag to assign dates.

I'd like a larger todoist calendar with different views (day/week/month/year) to show tasks with assigned dates.

I'd also like to have the option to display the tasks on Google calendar in real-time.

And another thought...

A key component to getting things done is not only identifying the "what" (the task), but perhaps more importantly the "when" (the date and time).

It's best to maintain just one calendar. Having a list of tasks is way more meaningful when they are integrated into one's own personal calendar so specific time can be allocated to them. Google calendar does this very well, allowing users to filter different views for different responsibilities and people in our lives. It makes sense to display tasks on a calendar on days and in specific time slots.

I have to disagree with wickenden. I think that it is one thing to know what you have to do, but if you want to actually accomplish anything you have to know when you can do what and how to plan your time. A calendar, with a monthly, daily, and weekly view, would be an amazing way to visually see when you have to do what and when you can plan to do other things. I think it's a huge part of being productive, and isn't that what Todoist is all about?

An interesting implementation of this is done in Wrike (http://www.wrike.com/) as they use a floating Gantt chart that filters exactly like lists making it easy to switch between, I find I use that often in project management. A typical block calendar doesn't normally display very well with a large number of tasks.

It would be nice if you could click on a calendar icon on the Todoist main page and pull up a calendar. If you click on a day (in the past), it will show you a record of Todoist activities on that day; a list of tasks completed, created, postponed and notes made. If you click on a day in the future, it shows tasks you have scheduled for that day.

Hey Steve,

Please don't get so disappointed. I personally know the difficulties in developing a software. Especially when you have to build a complex module as a calendar up on an existing one filled with data. Really it can be nightmare. And a calendar is not a basic feature in this case. And may be there is some good working on it' is needed.

The team has given us such a good app. (+1) Instead of getting angry about the delay let us congratulate them for the positive aspects. I am sure that the team will be able to deploy the calendar feature. But we must give us them the required time. It will be good if the status of this feature is shared by some staff here so that all of us know what is happening.

I understand development takes time and can be a difficult process but taking over a year (and still counting) to implement the most user-requested feature just doesn't leave their users with too much confidence in the development process at Todoist.

Calendar view is a "basic feature" in that it's just an alternate method of displaying the data that is already there. An iCal feed is already being generated, how about just displaying that feed on a simple calendar grid instead of a column of lines for starters?

The iCal feed is not a viable solution for most of the 2500+ people that have voted for this feature as it requires two separate apps. Several competing products already have a calendar view.

So why haven't I switched then? Well the Todoist UI is my favorite of the bunch and the multiplatform support is key (although I doubt I will see Win8 app in my lifetime).

My only request is: let us know about your progress in developing this feature because it is a must have and I will not be able to keep working with Todoist without it. You guys may be close to get it finished, but I may end up changing tools for not knowing that.

This feature does not seem necessary because of the integration with ical. Works fine for updating my google calendar and my outlook calendar. Most people use some kind of calendar app through their email service, that is the most convenient. ....

Although, I wish that it could somehow replace google tasks in calendar view (make the tasks be tasks, and allow checking them off).

Midhun, I used the iCal streaming feature, adding the Todoist calendar to
my calendars in gmail.
It takes a while for the google calendar to sync, so it won't show you how
your task have been re-arranged immediately. For me it works fine though,
because I look at the tasks for the day in the morning and tend not to look
at the calendar again until the following morning.

Hi,

We are sorry that our lack of responses is a problem, we have commented before, and the truth is nothing has changed at this time. This votebox was created a long time ago, yes, but many of the votes have been more recent.

We understand your frustration, and that this is highly requested, and we do hope to implement it, but the truth is we don't know when this will happen. There are many things that we are working on, some things need to be in place before we move forward with another idea. We always answer questions, but votebox's do not always get a response, unless needed, such as now.

I wish I could say more, but at this time we really do not know when exactly we will be able to finish it. It is indeed on our To-Do list, that you can be sure of. I wanted to reply as a few of you feel that you are disappointed in the lack of responses. We read and listen to everything, always.

Mateus,

I am almost certainly older, if not the oldest, user on this forum. I have tried for many years to find what suits me best, from manual to apps. I use Windows and Android in my work and life, so need synchronisation. I do not use any Apple devices.

Todoist is one that I have used far longer than most, I now have it sitting in my Outlook main page, but can use it on my Galaxy smartphone and tablets as well. It seems to have less overhead, BUT is lacking the Most Requested Feature.

You might want to look at AnyDo which recently added its own calendar, but I'm not sure if that integrates with other calendars other than iCal (?).

I did also try Workflowy for a bit. Some GTD-oriented apps may have what we are seeking, but I find GTD apps require too much fiddling.

I guess I might try AnyDo again, run it in tandem with ToDoist for a bit.

Like you and others, I have no idea why there is silence from the developers. There's enough enthusiasts on this forum willing to do beta testing.
