Welcome to Todoist!
Whether you’re managing a project or planning an exercise routine, Todoist can help. Learn the basics to stay on top of work and life.Let’s begin
Start with a project
Todoist projects keep all your tasks organized so you can achieve your goals — large and small.
Add your first task
All projects begin with a single step, but don’t stop there! Add every task that comes to mind.
The most achievable tasks tend to be:
- Super specific and clear
- Less than an hour long
Stay on schedule
Life’s smoother if you know what needs to happen when. Todoist can auto-detect due dates, nearly any way you write them!
Split big tasks into sub-tasks
Small tasks are far easier to complete than big ones, so break large goals into manageable to-dos.
- Divide tough tasks into short, easy ones
- Track all of your progress
- Collapse for calm, expand to complete
Organize tasks into sections
Tidy up your long task lists with sections. You can neatly divide your project any way that works for you.
Get things out of your head
Not sure which project a new task should go in? Add the task to your Inbox — the home for tasks without projects (yet).

Plan your future
Find every task due today, this week, or any week in your Today and Upcoming views.
Drag and drop to reschedule
Prioritize your day
It’s easy to get lost in your task list when there’s a lot on your plate. Keep your focus with color-coded priority levels.
- Pick only a few must-do tasks each day
- Do your hardest task first
- Reschedule any tasks you don’t check off
Celebrate your accomplishments
Small steps add up to big achievements over time. So take a moment to look back on all the progress you’ve made.
