Take back time spent hunting for the information you need to get stuff done. With task and project comments you can add notes, upload any file, and even discuss details with your coworkers. Everything stays neatly organized right inside your tasks and projects so you can get right to work.

Task and project comments are a Premium feature for solo projects, but are available for shared projects in Free accounts too.

How to add comments to tasks

When creating a new task: click on the speech bubble icon in the bottom-right corner of the add task window. Type in your comment and hit enter to save the task.

To view or add comments on an existing task: hover over the task and click on the grey speech bubble icon to the right of the task name.

Cut down on messy email chains by discussing tasks and project details in Todoist instead. In shared projects, you can choose who to notify about new comments.

How to add comments to projects

Project comments are attached to the whole project rather than a single task. You can keep any high-level project information or files organized here.

  1. No matter which device you’re using, you can find the project comments icon in the top right-hand corner of every project view.
  2. To view or add project comments, simply click or tap on the icon.
  3. Click Add comment (Web, Mac, or Windows) or tap the submit arrow (Android or iOS) to save a new comment.

Uploading files

You can attach and share any kind of file – documents, spreadsheets, PDFs, images, voice notes, and anything else you’d like – in both task and project comments. Everything stays in sync across all Todoist platforms so you’ll be able to access your files from anywhere.

Note: Uploading files is a Premium feature. Free users will be able to access files uploaded by collaborators in shared projects, but won’t be able to upload their own files.

How to upload files from any device

  1. Follow the steps above to open the task or project comments you want.
  2. Tap or click on the paperclip icon to attach a file.
  3. Select one or several files from your device, or from your Dropbox or Google Drive accounts.
  4. Click on Add comment (web, Mac, or Windows) or tap the submit arrow (iOS or Android) to save your comment.

You also have the option to quickly record an audio note and add it to your comments too. Even faster than typing 🗣

Connecting your Dropbox or Google Drive

Connect your Dropbox and/or Google Drive accounts to browse your files and attach them to comments without ever leaving Todoist.
