  • Android
  • Windows 10


Personal projects only can be turned into parent or sub-projects.

Keep your ever-growing project list 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.

Turn a project into a sub-project

Todoist currently supports sub-projects on three indent levels. 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.

About sub-projects in teams

If you're managing projects in a Todoist team, you won't be able to create a sub-project or turn an existing project into a sub-project.
