How to Use Todoist Templates

Todoist is by far the best task manager I have ever used, and it has some very powerful features such as labels, filters and many more. Another feature that Todoist offers is the ability to import and export your projects into a template, allowing you to share that checklist and also easily duplicate it.

You might be wondering what the use of this is - it allows you to import projects again and again, such as a travel checklist, and means that you don't have to make it each time. Another great use is sharing templates with your family, and many, many more. You can even export them as .cvs files and edit them in Excel, or export them as a web link to share to others.


To export a project, click on the three dots you see. Then, click on 'Export to template', and choose how you want to export it. If you want, you can check out this Todoist Support article to find out more.

There are a few ways to import a project. If you used a link, just click on the link and then select where you want it to be imported into. You can create a new project for it if you want. Then, hit import and the template will be imported!


Dragging and dropping .csv format files into a new project will also duplicate it.

One of my favourite things about templates is that relative due dates, such as a task with the date 'in three days' would be scheduled on the right days - this is awesome, and really makes Todoist templates powerful.

I use Todoist templates for a lot of things - I have a template for blog posts, which I import to check blog posts and make sure I have everything covered. I also use it for travel checklists, to make sure I haven't forgotten anything.

There is also a great website, To-Do Templates, where people share there templates. You can find awesome templates such as one for Zelda: Breath of the Wild side quests.

That's it! Todoist templates are really useful for quickly duplicating projects that you use lot, and are really powerful.
