The Productivity view in Todoist is the perfect place to review your completed tasks, track how well you’re achieving your goals or see how many Karma points you’ve accumulated.

What can I see in the Productivity view?

The Productivity view lets you see how many tasks you’ve completed on a daily and weekly basis, how much progress you’re making towards your daily and weekly goals, and which projects you’re working on most.

You can also review your Karma, which is a points system in Todoist that rewards you for completing tasks, achieving goals and more.

How to use the Productivity view

Let’s start by viewing Productivity:

  1. Click the productivity icon in the top right to open Your Productivity.

  1. Tap on your avatar photo in the top left.

  2. Select Productivity from the drop-down.

  1. Tap the more icon in the top left to open Productivity.

  2. Tap on your avatar photo.

  1. From Todoist's main menu, tap the productivity icon in the top left to open Productivity.

View completed tasks

The first thing you’ll notice in Productivity is how many tasks you’ve completed in total, which is also a link to View all completed tasks. Click or tap this option to see which tasks you’ve completed lately.

Daily and Weekly goals

In the center of Productivity, you’ll see how many tasks you’ve completed today and whether you’ve completed your daily goal.

In addition to daily goals, Todoist keeps track of your weekly goals. You can view the weekly goal by clicking the Weekly tab in Productivity. You’ll be able to see how many tasks you’ve completed this week and how much progress you’ve made towards your goal.

By default, your daily goal is 5 and your weekly goal is 25. However, you can edit these at any time through the Karma Goals and Settings link or Edit goal links.

Peek at your daily goal progress by glancing at the small pie chart near your avatar photo without having to open Productivity.

Below your goals, you can check out your streak. Your streak is the number of days or weeks in a row that you’ve achieved your goal. You’ll also see your longest streak to keep you motivated.

Completed Task Summary

To get an idea of which projects you’re working on most, you can look at a summary of tasks you’ve completed in the last 7 days.

You can also see the task breakdown over the last 4 weeks in the Weekly tab if you are a member of Todoist Premium.

The colors represent the colors of the projects where you completed tasks. The grey line represents your daily goal.

Keep similar projects organized together by changing their colors to be the same. Your Completed last 7 days view will become even more useful as your related tasks will be lumped together.

Karma

As you successfully complete tasks on time in Todoist, you’ll gain Karma points and achieve new Karma levels. You can see your current Karma points and level by selecting the Karma tab in Productivity.

Learn more about Karma points, and how you earn them.

FAQs

Q: I don't want to use daily goals. Can I turn off the daily goal icon that appears near my avatar?

A: Unfortunately, you can't turn off the daily goal icon at this point, but you can turn off Karma using the Productivity settings. A workaround is to go into the Productivity settings and set your Daily goal to 0. The daily goal icon will always be completed then and won't get in your way.
