Plan Your Week

This workflow is for those who plan their upcoming days or a week ahead. Tasks are shown in sections per each of the upcoming seven days.

Now / Later workflow


There are three ways to create a new task:

  • Click the "add" button at the bottom of the menu on the left
  • Hover over the name of any section, and the button to add a new task into the section will appear
  • Press A on the keyboard. Alternatively, CMD+N (on Mac) and Ctrl+N (on other platforms) work as well.

To quickly scheduled any task, select the task in the list and press S on your keyboard. Learn more about date-based scheduling here.


This workflow features our signature automatic prioritization. Tasks are sorted by their assigned day or date, then by their assigned priority, and lastly by their age.


The task with the highest urgency will be highlighted in bold in the list as the next task to work on. This can be disabled in the settings.

As in other workflows, start working on tasks from the top. If you have trouble getting started on a task, start a timer.


To quickly increase a task's priority, use Shift+Arrow Up keyboard shortcut.


No need to look at tasks that are not relevant now — once you plan the tasks to work on today and tomorrow, collapse Tomorrow section by double-clicking its name. This works for all sections in all workflows.


To see the sum of estimates for all the tasks on a particular day, hover over the section name and the total time will show.
