Available for:

Make your task stand out in bold, spice up your project names with emojis  🎉 , or change the hyperlinked text in your comments.

Hypertext, bold text, italic text, and emojis are all supported in task names, project names, and comments. Emojis are also supported in label names 👏

Emoji-fy your Todoist


In task names, project names, task comments, and label names we support:

  • Todoist emoji shortcuts, e.g. :), :P, and :D will be converted to 😊, 😋, and 😃 respectively
  • All the standard emojis you’ve come to know and ❤️

You can either copy and paste an emoji directly – or you can type out the emoji command and the text will automatically convert into its corresponding emoji when you save the task, comment, project, or label.

For example, typing :smile: into the task field will convert the text into 😃.
