This is a shortlist of all of the recommendations for taking your Todoist to expert.

1. Native App

Use the Todoist native app instead of the web version because it’s more reliable and it allows you to easily add tasks.

2. Keyboard Shortcuts

Get used to taking vantage of the keyboard shortcuts. You can find and set them up in the Preferences section of the Todoist Settings.

3. Dashboard

Create a customized dashboard using filters and set it as the home page of your desktop app. This way, you’ll have a clear overall view of what needs to get done.

4. Mobile Start Page

6. Today List

Create a today list for your 10 most important tasks.

7. Closing Down Session

Spend 10-15 mins at the end of the day to do a closing down session. Carl uses the Golden 10 filter showing all the tasks to be done and the inbox.


8. Drafts App

Use the Drafts app on iOS to quickly add tasks from your iPhone and Apple Watch.

9. Weekly Review

Do your weekly review on your desktop app, so you can easily see your active projects and have a better view of your tasks.

10. Don’t Copy Someone Else’s Filters

When you create filters, try to think of what you need to see displayed or filtered, don’t try to copy someone else’s filters.

Bonus: Do What Works For You

Just like filters, don’t copy someone else’s system when you set up your Todoist account. You can get ideas by other people’s set ups but create what works for you.
