Popular task-managing app Todoist today announced a new AI-powered feature called "Smart Schedule," which intelligently takes into account user habits and pre-existing tasks to organize and schedule tasks on its own. The company said that it created the feature because so many of its users -- 70 percent in total -- face unfinished tasks each day.

With Smart Schedule, Todoist hopes that percentage will begin dropping as the new feature begins learning and adapting to the following factors: your habits, task urgency, weekdays versus weekends, upcoming tasks, daily and weekly goals, and more. On a personal level, Smart Schedule will be able to figure out things like what time of day each user checks their email, which day they read most, and suggest tasks accordingly.

The feature will also accumulate anonymous data from all Todoist users to figure out how urgent generic tasks are, as well as when more users do tasks during the week ("check email") instead of the weekend. The company said that users will still have full control over their schedule, and can edit and delete Smart Schedule's suggestions as they see fit. Due to its AI-learning, Todoist also mentioned that the feature will only get smarter the more it's used.

Smart Schedule uses predictive modeling to help you easily plan out your tasks for the day and week to come. It learns your personal productive habits, and takes into account patterns across all Todoist users, to predict the best possible due dates for your tasks.

That means those 50+ overdue tasks you have hanging around can be quickly rescheduled en masse, while new and unscheduled tasks can be easily assigned to the best due dates. In this way, Smart Schedule makes it much easier to stay on top of your to-do list and roll with the punches when your day doesn’t go as planned.

Todoist also confirmed that Smart Schedule is "completely private and completely yours," with the feature's accumulating personal data never accessed by a Todoist employee or any outside service.

Todoist is available to download for free from the iOS App Store [Direct Link] and the macOS App Store [Direct Link]. Users can subscribe to Todoist Premium for $28.99/year for access to more features, including location-based notifications, automatic backups, Apple Calendar syncing, and more.
