If it’s not measured and visualized in a pretty graph, did it really happen? Probably. But just in case, there’s Todoist Karma.

Todoist Karma lets you track your productivity over time, visualize your daily and weekly trends, set goals, and challenge yourself to keep improving. Here’s how it works:

Your Karma score and level

You can see your current Karma score at the top right of your Todoist in the web, Mac, and Windows (legacy) apps. Click on your score to see your current Karma level and how far you have to go to reach the next one.

The more points you earn, the higher your Karma level rises. (There are currently eight Karma levels.)

You earn Karma when you:

  • Add tasks.
  • Complete tasks on time.
  • Use advanced features like labels, recurring due dates, and reminders.
  • Reach your goals regarding the number of tasks you want to complete daily and weekly.
  • Achieve ongoing "streaks" by reaching your goals for several days/weeks in a row.

You lose Karma when you:

  • Have tasks that are 4 or more days overdue.

You can turn on vacation mode for Karma so you won’t get docked points when you’re out of the office.

Your daily and weekly trends

In your Karma menu, you’ll also see the total number of tasks you’ve completed along with your productivity trend over the past week.

Check out the bar graph for a daily breakdown of the tasks you completed color-coded by project. (If you’re Premium, you’ll also see a bar graph of your weekly productivity over the past month.)

The vertical grey lines represent your goals for the number of tasks you want to complete each day and week. At the very bottom of your Karma menu, you’ll see your current daily and weekly unbroken streaks of reaching your goals, as well as you longest streaks ever.

Customizing your Karma settings and goals

Make Karma work for you! You have the option to:

  • Set your own daily and weekly completed task goals.
  • Choose “off” days of the week that won’t affect your Karma or daily/weekly streaks (like weekends).
  • Turn on Karma vacation mode so you won’t break your streak while you’re away.
  • Disable Karma entirely.
