With the Habit Tracker extension, you can track your recurring tasks’ completion streaks in the task description, as well as completion history in the task comments.



Make sure to complete your recurring tasks each day, as any recurring task that becomes overdue at the end of the day will cause your streak to reset.

Setting up the extension

  1. Open the Todoist desktop or browser app.
  2. Click your avatar in the top-right corner.
  3. Select Integrations.
  4. At the top, click Browse.
  5. In the list of available integrations, select Habit Tracker.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Click Confirm


When you run the extension for the first time, you will be asked to authenticate your Todoist account. 

Using the extension

  2. Click the three dots icon in the top-right corner of the task view.
