Available for

  • Business

The calendar layout helps teams align on important dates and plan upcoming work.

It's a great way to avoid any scheduling conflicts and prevent team members from overcommitting.


  • Todoist for Web, macOS, and Windows supports a monthly calendar.
  • Todoist for iOS and Android supports a weekly calendar.
  • The calendar layout is currently not available in the Today view.
  • Manual sorting isn't available for the calendar layout. Instead, tasks are sorted by default.
