Managing Overdue Tasks

What is it?

Any.do helps users stay on top of all of their to-do’s. However, if a task has not been completed and has passed its reminder‘s due date, it will be considered as an ‘Overdue task’. No worries though! These tasks can be easily re-planned, ensuring that all of your missions are accomplished!

Who has access?

How does it work?

  • Tasks with an assigned Reminder will progress from “Upcoming” to “Tomorrow”, and eventually to “Today” when their due date has arrived.
  • If a task has not been completed on its due date, it will become an “Overdue task”. 
  • Overdue tasks can be found on both the Tasks and the Calendar Views.
  • Overdue tasks can be re-scheduled using Any.do Moment on mobile, or by simply editing the reminder straight from the Task Menu.

To view your overdue tasks

✔️ Android/ iOS

  • Overdue tasks will automatically appear under the “Today” section in the Task View, and will also be displayed in red under the current day on the Calendar View.

✔️ Web/ Windows/ Mac

  • Overdue tasks will automatically appear under the “Today” section in the Task View.

✔️ Android/ iOS/ Web/ Windows/ Mac

  1. Head to your Task View.
  2. Tap on a task’s title to open its Task Menu.
  3. Complete the task, delete it, or edit its reminder as needed.
