Global TODO-List

Hello,

what I really miss on Joplin (using Desktop) is a global TODO List which shows all TODOs of the different Notebooks together in one place.

Greetings,
Stefan

Hi, thanks for the fast answer.

Not exactly what I was looking for. I have numerous notebooks (one for each project) and I want to see the open TODOs of all notebooks together to get an overview about the upcoming work. As it is now I always have to check each notebook seperately for open TODOs.

On the main page of the app you have all the todo

Not on the Desktop (Linux) here.

I see the limitation there also. As a work round I created a notebook named 1. To do and I create all to-dos on there. I keep notebooks listed alphabetically so it’s always on top. I suppose if you wanted to-dos in your separate notebooks you could create a to-do tag. You could then filter by tag to see all your to-dos. I know it’s an extra step when creating a to-do.

Perhaps that could be added as a feature, creating a to-do automatically adds a to-do tag

Or just a single TODO-Button on the sidebar which shows all the TODOs.

Better still!

I’d love to see this as well!

for me it could even (optionally) include todo’s from inside normal notes (all - [ ] expressions)

meanwhile you can create such a thing by creating one note and drag&drop each of your todo-note in that note as if it was a “summary”

it’s not perfect but it can play a role before having that feature in our lovely welcome page :wink:

Any update on this? Would still love to see it in Joplin :slight_smile:

at least when you use “all notes” ; you can see the TODO at the begining of that list

Not on Joplin-Desktop

yes it’s true
