Plan your day with the Today view

The Today view lets you see all the tasks due today across all your projects. Check in here every morning to make a realistic plan to tackle your day.


What are the 3 most important tasks you need to complete today? Mark those priority 1 so they’ll show up at the top of your Today view in red. Work on those first when you’re still fresh and energized.



Have too much scheduled for the day? It’s disheartening to see a list a mile long and know you can’t possibly get it all done. Keep your Today view focused and realistic by rescheduling some tasks for later in the week. Your morning review would be a great time to get this done.


You can also drag your tasks to the bottom of the Today view to postpone them for tomorrow.


Form a habit

When you make a habit of organizing your Today view first, you’ll never waste time deciding what to work on next. After finishing a task, just open your Today view again, mark that one complete, and move on to the next item on the list.

Of course, no matter how well you plan your day, you’ll inevitably end up with some tasks left over at the end. Instead of letting overdue tasks snowball from one day to the next, postpone them to tomorrow or later in the week so you can end every day at Todoist Zero. (No, it’s not cheating — it’s being flexible and rolling with the punches. It’s important to give yourself permission to truly end your workday and start fresh tomorrow.)
