It doesn’t matter if you’re on Android, iOS, desktop PC – you can get going fast with these commonly asked questions and general overview.

Recurring Tasks

Saving Attachments – For Free

Saving files and attachments is something that is only possible with the paid premium app, or is it? This is a great way to handle all of your files you need without having to pay for the premium version if you don’t need it for another reason. More details here.


Subtasks & Projects

Another great feature is subtasks and using them for projects. You can better arrange your todo items and do things like make a top level item not easily deleted (very handy!). More details here.


Using The Asterisk

Using the asterisk in Todoist – sounds really fun, right? Ok, maybe it doesn’t sound fun, but it is really useful – check out the video and see what you can do with it. More details here on using the asterisk.


Viewing Completed Tasks

Sometimes you need to see that task again, or maybe you marked it complete just a little bit too early – it happens to all of us. However, it’s not gone forever. More details here.

Using IFTTT With Gmail & Todoist

This one is super cool and saves me a ton of time and headaches with “lost” emails. It’s also a great way to stop working from your inbox and keep that lovely inbox zero going. Sound good? It is! More details on IFTTT, Gmail, and Todoist here.


Avoiding Automatic Dates Assignment

Todoist can automatically assign dates based on what you type – and it is the default. It can be super effective but there are times you may not want that…what should you do then? Watch the video and find out – and you can see more here.


Location Based (GPS) Reminders

Are you using Todoist premium? If so, you’re in luck – you can set up geographical based reminders! More details here.
