Plan your week with the Upcoming view

The Upcoming view gives you a bird’s eye view of your week while letting you organize your upcoming tasks all in one place. Review your plans for days, weeks, or even months ahead—all up to two years!

Review your upcoming tasks

See every task due in the next 7 days (and beyond) across all your projects.


  1. Click Upcoming in the sidebar.
  2. Scroll through the list to see tasks scheduled for any date in the future.
  3. Click the left and right arrow buttons at the top-right to view a different week. Click any day of the week to see the tasks scheduled for that day.
  4. Click the Today button at the top-right to get back to today’s date.

Quick tip

Click the current month's name in the top-left to select the month and date you need. This lets you quickly jump and view tasks scheduled on that day.

Schedule your tasks

Schedule due dates in minutes, so you know exactly what’s coming up.

  1. Click Upcoming in the sidebar.
  2. Scroll down the task list or use the week picker at the top to jump to any date in the future.
  3. Click + Add task to create a task for that selected day.

Reschedule your tasks

Reschedule tasks to free up fully booked days in the week. In Todoist, drag a task across the Upcoming view and to their new dates. This ensures your schedule is manageable and doable.

Existing tasks: Drag the task to its new date, or hover your cursor over the task, click the scheduler icon, and pick a new due date.

Overdue tasks: Cick Reschedule at the top-right.

Show or hide future occurrences

If you’re on the Todoist Pro or Business plan, you’ll have access to the calendar layout in the Upcoming view. From there, choose whether you want to see or hide all future occurrences of your recurring tasks in the calendar.

To show or hide future occurrences of your tasks, click View in the top-right. Then, turn Future occurrences on or off.


If the list or board layout is applied to the project, you'll only see the next recurrence of the task.

Best practices for the Upcoming view

As you get the hang of planning your week in advance, the Upcoming view becomes a great tool for looking back at what you’ve achieved, and proactively scheduling tasks for the following week. Here are some tips and best practices to try:

Postpone tasks that need more time

If a task needs more time to complete, postpone it to next week using the Postpone option in the task scheduler.


Review upcoming appointments

It’s nice to get a sense of which appointments are coming up, so you can plan your week accordingly. This is especially useful if you’ve set up your calendar to sync with Todoist.

Add a due time to any tasks that are time-sensitive, and create a reminder to make sure you don’t forget them.

Create a recurring task to plan your week

Do you prefer reviewing your week on Friday evenings or quiet Sunday mornings? Stick to the schedule that works best for you by adding a recurring weekly task to “Plan the week”.
