Priorities

Not all tasks are created equal. Use priority levels to make sure the most important things on your list stand out.

You can give your tasks one of four priority levels – 1 being the most important (marked as red) and 4 being everything else (no color).

Your highest priority tasks will appear near the top of each daily to-do list in your Today and Next 7 Days views (tasks with both a due date and time appear first) so you’ll know exactly what to work on first. You can also sort any of your project lists by priority.

How to add or change a priority level

When adding a task on any platform – web, desktop, or mobile – click or tap the flag icon and select the priority level you want. You can change the priority level any time by selecting the flag icon when editing a task.

Quick Add Shortcut 

To add a task priority even faster, you can type p1, p2, or p3 right into the task field. Todoist will automatically recognize and assign the right priority level when you create the task.
