You can add a Todoist widget to your lock screen so you can view your upcoming tasks at a glance and add new ones without having to unlock your device. Here's how:


Support for lock screen widgets was dropped in Android Lollipop so this will only work for versions prior to 5.0.

  1. In portrait mode, swipe right across the upper part of the screen until you see the + symbol. In landscape mode, swipe right from the left side of your screen.
  2. Tap the + symbol. If prompted, enter your PIN, pattern or password. A set of the available widgets appears.
  3. Tap the Todoist widget to add it.
