About Todoist

Todoist is a web-based productivity application designed to help businesses keep track of all their important tasks and projects across 15+ platforms and in 20 different languages. Individuals and teams can manage tasks and collaborate on shared projects on the web, mobile devices (iOS, iPad & Android), desktops (Windows & Mac), email inboxes (Gmail & Outlook), and web browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, & Safari).

Todoist allows businesses to add tasks, set up recurring due dates, and create custom to-do lists according to requirements. It provides an AI-powered feature, Smart Schedule, which utilizes machine learning algorithms to suggest ideal dates for scheduling and rescheduling tasks.

Todoist helps segment large projects into multiple sub-projects or sub-tasks and categorize them using labels, filters or task priority levels. Users are able to create a new task, track the status of their ongoing tasks, and view all completed tasks within their Todoist account.

Using Todoist Karma, organizations can provide points for completed tasks, enabling them to quickly reach defined weekly and monthly productivity goals. Managers can monitor team members' tangible progress with visual graphs, which is color-coded based on specific projects. Other features of the platform include task commenting, overdue task tracking, recurring task creation, daily goal setting, customizable workflow creation, personalized productivity trends, and more.

Todoist offers integration with a range of third-party applications including Google Calendar, Dropbox, Zapier, and more, in order to centralize tasks and streamline task management workflows.

It's superb for always being ready to go. I really love the Android widget that always sits on my home screen right next to my calendar and weather. It shows my task list for the day and I have no excuse for not knowing what needs doing.

Pros

I have used Todoist for almost 3 years now and it's the one to-do product that I seem to be able to stick with. I went through a variety of to-do-list managers before this, but somehow because of the wide range of platforms that it supports, including a browser extension, a native Windows app, mobile apps, and a native Mac app, Todoist meets my needs really well. So I guess the feature I like the most is it's ubiquity and speed--it's always close at hand. It can even be the default to-do manager on an Alexa device, which is really nice because you don't have to say "open Todoist" or something like that.

Cons

The free version is really limited. I had the paid version for quite a while and then switched back, but miss a few of the paid features. Even simple things like seeing completed to-dos aren't available unless you pay, so consider the free tier to be VERY limited.

Get organized with Todoist

I need a simple software that i can relied on to managing my days, and Todoist is the best option for that objective. It can be connected or integrated with Google Assistant which will remind me of my event on my calendar with it voice.

Pros

The best thing that i really like is it can be access from various device and no need to install the software into the device. I use it as my organizer to schedule, remind and organized all my daily task and to-do list, either for my work task or for my personal task. It is not packed with feature like other project management software, but still can get the work done.

Cons

It lacked of feature that i need and sometimes it is quite frustrating and i have to using other software to get it done. Other than that, It is very helpful in reminding and scheduling my day and not too expensive to subscribing its premium plan.

Easy To Use, Not So Easy To Organice

The founder of the company really likes it to keep track of what everyone is doing so I've been using it for the last 5 months (since I started in this company).
But anyway, I actually keep using the Notes App on Mac which is really similar to Todoist but I can keep my tasks private - which is something I wish I could do on Todoist, not sure if there is a way already but it's not very clear who can see what.

Pros

Me and my team really like how easy to use it is.
It helps keeping track of what needs o be done and lets other people know what's been completed.
It doesn't over complicate things and it's really good that you can have it on your phone and get updates on notifications.

Cons

I get that keeping it simple must be the main idea behind this app. However, I'd appreciate if some hierarchy could be applied when organising the tasks.
The way to organise projects on the left part could be, for example, group into folders so once a project is finished you could, for example, move it to an archive folder.

All the Karma points system and the notifications is a bit confusing or just not clear enough. Is it just to cheer you up when you've completed many tasks or has it got any actual purpose?

But the most important: I wish tasks wouldn’t disappear from my inbox right when I complete them.
I wish I could still see them (maybe in a lighter grey colour) so I see what I've completed and then I could manually move them into a project folder when I don't want to see them anymore.

Also, I'd appreciate if some type of colour coding could be applied in some way.

This tool can be used from any device which is a great achievement on my view. It is easy to use too.

Pros

Sometimes, the most brilliant ideas crosses our minds when we least expect it. Unless recorded instantly, most of this ideas varnish and never come back. This software has changed the game for me. I easily keep record of my plans and schedule. It is easy to retrieve from the list anytime. I have also set reminders for the most crucial tasks giving me punctuality. The best part is that it is quite easy to customize this software making it quite relatable.

Cons

None in my experience. I appreciate every step of my journey with Todoist.

practical tool to manage projects and productivity

Reviewed on 2024/02/20

Pros

I like that it is easy to keep track of your daily activites, you can write and set up your reminders and link it to a specific project. You have access to it from website, pc app or phone app so you can have all your task at hand at anygiven time.

Cons

I think sometimes it is hard to go and edit some task, that editing part it is not so intuitive and you need to do so many clicks if you don't remember the short cuts.
