The Calendar View

What is it?

Any.do’s Calendar Integration was created to allow users to have better control over their schedule while being able to view both tasks and events side by side. Through the Calendar View all scheduling can be conducted under one roof, without any need of opening multiple apps.

Who has access?

  • Both Premium and Free users can take advantage of this feature!
  • The feature is available on all supported platforms.

How does it work?

  • After setting up your calendar(s) you will be able to see both tasks and events side by side in the Calendar View.
  • Each event has its own menu  on the mobile apps, from which it can be easily edited without any need to open your native app.
  • On the desktop apps, items will appear as read only.
  • On mobile, tasks that are past their due date, but haven’t been completed will become “overdue tasks.” These will automatically show up on the current day in red text.
  • Overdue tasks can be re-planned using Any.do Moment on mobile or by simply editing straight from the view.
