If your workflow includes recreating projects, or if you want to copy and share the same task list with different people, you can duplicate a project. 

When you duplicate a project, Todoist quickly creates a copy of any existing project or sub-project. You'll see the words Copy of… added to the project name to help differentiate it from the original project, preventing mistakes.

You can easily change the name of a duplicated project at any time.


What is duplicated

  • Project name and color
  • Chosen view
  • Chosen sorting, grouping, or filtering options
  • Active sections, tasks, and sub-tasks (with respective due dates, priorities and labels)

What is not duplicated

  • Task reminders.
  • Completed tasks and archived sections.
  • Project and task comments.
  • Favorite setting: you can add it to your favorites at any time.
  • Sharing settings: a duplicated project is private by default. You can share it later.
  • Sub-projects: you can duplicate them individually the same way as parent projects.
