⚙️ Integration and Settings

🔗 How do I integrate my calendar?

Depending on the platform you’re working with, you may find step by step instructions on how to integrate your calendars to Any.do’s Calendar integration here: Calendar setup.


🎨 How can I change the color of my calendars?

The colors of your events are set by your native calendar settings, per each calendar you choose to integrate. In order to change the colors associated with your calendar-events, please check out this article.


👀 I only want to see specific calendars in my view. How can I remove the rest?

In order to see only specific calendars and their associated events in your mobile/ desktop app, simply select them in the ‘visible calendars’ option, as described here.


 Why can’t I see my Apple calendar on the desktop app?

The desktop apps currently offer the option to sync only Google/Outlook calendar accounts. However, if you have the option to subscribe to your Apple calendar, you will be able to see it under Settings => My Day => Visible Calendars in your left side panel :)

We plan on adding support for more calendar clients in the near future and update our users on our social media channels as soon as it becomes available!


🌐 Why don't my tasks sync to my Google calendar?

The Calendar Integration syncs events to and from your native calendar. However, at this time tasks will remain in Any.do and will not sync back to your calendar. Premium users can set up a custom Zap via our Zapier integration to have each new Any.do task added to your email client


🌎 Why don't my tasks sync to my Outlook calendar?

The Calendar Integration syncs events to and from your native calendar. However, at this time tasks will remain in Any.do and will not sync back to your calendar. Premium users can set up a custom Zap via our Zapier integration to have each new Any.do task added to your email client


📲 Why do I need to grant contacts permissions to integrate my calendars?

Granting contacts permissions in order to integrate your calendar(s) is required for seeing shared events properly. It is also required in order to add invitees and add/remove members to your events. Any.do only uses the permissions for the calendar’s functionality and does not save any of these records on our servers.


🔀 How do I change calendars/ reset permissions?

All you need to do to switch calendars or reset your calendars is disable the permissions and then log out and back to the app, as detailed here. Once permissions are disabled, the calendar view will ‘reset’ and you will be able to integrate a different calendar.


👥 Can I share my Any.do calendar(s) with other users?

Unlike tasks, calendars cannot be shared directly through the app, however you can still see the same events as your family members or colleagues by sharing the specific calendar(s) from its native settings. To learn more, check out this article.


😬 My calendar isn’t syncing across all platforms. Why?

Any.do requires separate calendar integration per each device. This means that you need to make sure that you’ve integrated the same calendar(s) on any of the platforms you’re using the app. If you’re missing a specific calendar, simply check out the following article to add it to your preferred platforms:Calendar setup. For further assistance, reach out to our Support Team here.


💼 How can I set My Calendar to hide weekends?

🤫 Can I hide personal or workspace tasks from my calendar view?

Open the Calender View on the desktop or web apps, press on the 3 dots menu and toggle off "workspace tasks" or "personal tasks".

📩 How do I invite others to an event?

Open the event menu and add Invitees. The invite notification will be sent by the native calendar provider and not via Any.do. Events are only mirrored in the app as Any.do doesn't have an independent calendar. The only notification for events you will get is for when they are due.


🤔 Why am I not getting calendar invites to the app?

You will not get calendar invites in the Any.do app as events are only mirrored in the app as Any.do doesn't have an independent calendar. The only notification for events you will get is for when they are due.


🖨️ Can I print the mobile/desktop calendar view?

There is no option to print the calendar view, that said you can take a screenshot of the view and print it. That said, we do have the option to print lists.


📆 Adding and Editing Calendar Items

✍️ Why can I edit certain events but others not?

Editing an event depends on the permissions on the associated calendar or event, for example if someone else invited you to the event or the calendar is read only.


✏️ Why can’t I edit/ delete events in my Android app?

If you’re experiencing issues editing or deleting your events using the Android app, it may be due to an improper setup of your calendar(s). In order to fix this, please go to your native device’s calendar app => Manage Calendars => Uncheck and recheck your preferred calendars. Then, go to Any.do => Calendar Tab => Uncheck and recheck your preferred calendars from the menu on the top left corner. Make sure you’re checking the same calendars as in the native app. Then, close and reopen the app. You should now be able to edit and delete events properly. For further assistance, reach out to our team.


📱💻 I can’t see the same events on all my devices

Every event is linked to a calendar account (google, outlook, apple, etc) . In order to see events you have to make sure that the calendar account is added to your device. The calendar events are simply mirrored in the app and are not integrated to the account itself. If you want to see the same events on all platforms make sure the calendar account is added to all platforms.

Please note that at this time the desktop apps can only display a Google\ Outlook account (with all its calendars) in read only mode.

However, we are working on adding further functionality to match the mobile apps as soon as possible. In the meantime, you may opt to subscribe to any other calendar via your main account in order to see the events in Any.do. To learn more see: the Calendar setup page.


😱 Why is Any.do adding spam to my calendar?

Any.do does not add events on users behalf, nor does it allow for any 3rd party ads. If you’re seeing spam events after integrating your calendar, it is probably because you have an event on your native calendar which was added externally. We recommend simply accessing your native calendar client to check the origin of this event and remove it accordingly.


✅ Why can't I add tasks through the calendar view?

You can add tasks from the task view, the calendar view is for adding and viewing events. If you add a task with a due date you will be able to see it from the calendar view. That said you can edit tasks from the calendar view.


⏰ How can I manage overdue items in my calendar?

From the mobile app agenda view there is an overdue tasks area where you can manage the tasks.


🏞 Calendar Views

📆 How can I see a weekly view of my calendar?

On mobile open the calendar view and press the three line menu, from there choose the week view. On desktop and web open the calendar view and use the top-right view option and change it to 'Week'.


🗓 How can I see a Monthly view of my calendar?

On desktop and web open the calendar view and use the top-right view option and change it to 'Month'. On mobile From the calendar view, tap on the month's title at the top of the screen <Nov 2022>. Scroll left/right on the calendar move between months. The widgets are also a great way to see your events for the month.


🕛 How can I see a daily view of my calendar?

On mobile open the calendar view and press the three line menu, from there choose the day view or also select three day view. On desktop and web open the calendar view and use the top-right view option and change it to 'Day'.


🧐 Why can't I view the upcoming recurring tasks in my calendar?

You will only see the recurring task once. The way personal recurring reminders work is that when you complete the current recurrence, the next one pops up. Only when completing the current occurrence, will you be able to see the next one. In workspace recurring tasks, you decide what event or condition will prompt the task to repeat. The next task is generated only when that chosen trigger occurs.

If you want to see future recurrence, set up a repeating event.


🔆 Daily Planning

🆚 What's the difference between My Day and tasks under today?

My Day is a view designed for planning, eliminating any leftover clutter from the previous day, and providing a fresh start. In order to see tasks in the view you will need to manually add them.

Tasks under Today are tasks that have a due date for today or overdue tasks that the due date has passed.

You have the option to add in bulk tasks that are due today to My Day from the suggestions.


🔄 Why do I need to constantly add recurring reminders to My Day?


​In order to see tasks in the My Day view you will need to manually add them. There is no option to automatically add tasks to My Day as this is a special view that clears every day. Recurring reminders will be created in the original lists/ boards but will not be added to My Day unless you manually add them.


👀 Why can't I see workspace tasks in the calendar?

To see workspace tasks in your calendar view, the task needs to have a due date and also be assigned to you.
