Create a sub-project in Todoist

Available for

  • Beginner
  • Pro


  • macOS
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Windows 10

Keep your ever-growing personal project lists neat and organized with sub-projects. For example, you might create “parent” projects called “Home” and “Health” and then organize various sub-projects underneath each one.

Quick tip

Since sub-projects are only available for personal projects, use folders to organize your team projects instead!

Turn a project into a sub-project

Todoist currently supports sub-projects on three indent levels for personal projects. To turn a project into a sub-project:

  1. Hover over a project.
  2. Drag the project to the left or right to change its indent level.

Quick tip

Break down large projects with sections.
