With Google Calendar, you can quickly schedule meetings and events as well as get reminders about upcoming activities, so you always know what’s next. And while you can’t create more time in a day, you can definitely use it more wisely when you sync your task list to your Google Calendar.

With this real-time, two-way sync between Todoist and Google Calendar, you’ll be able to visualize, organize, and prioritize your tasks from inside your calendar. Any changes you make in Google Calendar will instantly be reflected back in Todoist and vice versa.


  • Get the big picture of your upcoming tasks and projects for the day, week, month, and even year ahead right inside your calendar.

  • Find time for what’s most important by blocking off time for high priority tasks in your calendar.

  • Customize your calendar events from within Todoist by typing something like Plan pizza party [80m] into the task name — which will automatically create a new Google Calendar event entitled Plan pizza party lasting 1 hour and 20 minutes.

  • Adjust your plans as you go by simply dragging and dropping events in your calendar. You’ll see the changed due dates instantly reflected back in your Todoist.

Dates in Todoist can sometimes be a bit confusing. Here you will find a complete overview of the date formats and the ways of using dates in Todoist.

Note: I recommend to bookmark this post so that you can easily find it when you are struggling with dates in Todoist.

How to set dates in Todoist

You can set dates in Todoist using the calendar/date selector, or by using natural language.

Todoist will automatically recognize and add due dates as you type them into a task name. This feature is called Smart date recognition. You can turn this feature on or off by going to Settings / General / Smart date recognition.

Disabling Smart date recognition for a single task

Sometimes, Todoist’s Smart date recognition can be a source of irritation. Let’s say the task is “Finish monthly expense report” By the time you type “Finish mon” Todoist will have interpreted this as a task named “Finish” that is due on Monday. To avoid this, press backspace or delete on your keyboard, or tap the highlighted word on your phone or tablet.

Recurring due dates in Todoist

The only way to set recurring due dates in Todoist is by using natural language. I’m tempted to say that your imagination is the limit but to make it easy to get started, I have made some tables below.

every 10Every tenth day, week, month, etc

The use of ! (exclamation mark)

Thanks to the tip from Keith in the comment section, I can list a very useful function that was unknown to me: The format Every! will calculate the next occurrence from when you complete the task. Meaning that if you complete the task later than on the first due date, the next occurrence will be calculated from when you completed the previous task.

Setting start dates for non-recurring tasks in Todoist

Start dates for non-recurring tasks are actually not supported in Todoist. The dates above are all due dates. You have three options to get around this:

  1. Register the start date as the due date. When the task shows up, use the every day until <due date> to make the task repeat until the desired due date.
  2. Register the task with due date every day from <start date> to <due date> .
  3. Register the task with a due date and set a reminder for the start date.
