Time-blocking is about planning your day upfront by dragging your tasks and habits onto the calendar between your meetings and appointments.
You can find your calendar in the sidebar on the right of your task lists and toggle whether it is open using an icon in the toolbar on the bottom of the screen or via
CMD+S (on Mac) or
Ctrl+S (on other platforms).
Simply drag any of your tasks onto to calendar to plan them into your day. To time-block your habits, refer to our dedicated article on habit scheduling.
When the sidebar is resized and made large enough, tomorrow appears, allowing you to plan out tomorrow hour by hour.
Dragging your tasks onto the calendar respects their set estimate. See our article dedicated to estimation for more information.

Can I place breaks on the calendar?
Yes, please look at how to implement breaks with specific durations here.
Can I see different calendars in different lists? I don't want to see my work calendar when looking at my personal tasks
This would bring more problems than it would solve, unfortunately. Your daily schedule is your daily schedule, regardless of what list you are looking at. It could lead to situations where either you miss a work meeting because you don’t see it or you time-block a personal task for the same time you already time-blocked a work task without knowing.
