Whether you use Todoist to organize your life or work, staying on top of a busy schedule is about to get easier with new Upcoming View. It’s a bird’s eye look at your tasks that makes it simple to manage all your due dates in one place.

With Upcoming View, you’ll be able to easily preview what’s coming next, drag and drop tasks to new due dates, and, ultimately, feel more in control of your schedule.

This new view is rolling out to everyone over the next 24 hours — here’s what to expect:

📅 Preview your upcoming tasks

To get started, find Upcoming right under Today in the left-hand navigation menu on any platform. You’ll see a list of all the tasks you have coming up this week, and you can scroll down to see more.

Planning an event or vacation? Quickly jump days, months, or even years into the future by opening the month picker in the top left. Then tap/click the day you’re looking for.

As you start booking up your schedule, Upcoming View will help you know when you’re busy and when you’re free. If you you see a small dot below any date, that means you already have tasks due that day — if there’s no dot, you’re free so far!

📅 Designing Upcoming View

A quick word from designer Sam Beckett:

Our goal with Upcoming View was to let people see all of their scheduled tasks at once and add and reschedule tasks at the same time. In short, we aimed to include essential functionality without over-complicating it. The layout centers around the simple-to-use Week Navigator, which lets people easily hop between days in a week or jump ahead to any week in the future.

We can’t wait to see how people use Upcoming View, and we’re keeping an eye on the feedback to inform future improvements, too.

💻 Plus: A more spacious layout on web and desktop

In case you missed it, Todoist for Web and Desktop recently released an edge-to-edge layout that works seamlessly with Upcoming View. It gives you more visual space to work with and lets you completely hide the left navigation menu when it’s time to focus.
