Intro to Calendar view

You can use Calendar view for planning, scheduling, and even resource management. Drag and drop tasks, customize and categorize tasks, and plan out your day, week, or month in advance!

You can also sync your Calendar view with your Google, Outlook, or Apple calendars to consolidate tasks in one place.

What you'll need

Create a Calendar view

To create a Calendar view:
  1. Click + Add in your Views Bar to open the Views modal.

  2. Optional: You can check the Private view box if you don't want anyone else to access this view or the Pin view box if you want the view to always display in your Views Bar.
  3. Select Calendar.
  4. Once the view has been created you can give the view a name and customize it using the Customize menu on the right. 
  5. Choose how much time you want to see in your calendar by selecting the Month dropdown to the far right of the tasks search bar. You can choose from:
    • Day: See tasks scheduled for all day or for a set time.
    • 4 days: See a four-day period.
    • Week: See a week and move tasks around from day to day as needed. 
    • Month: See your entire month and move tasks around from day to day as needed.
You can use the right and left arrows next to the tasks search bar to go back to the last time period or ahead to the next one. To quickly jump back to the current day, click Today.
