Archived Pane now has a way to view and restore archived items with the new Archived Pane. Any items you’ve ever archived since first launched will be in the Archived Pane. It works just like other panes, with the search and outline to help you find the items you’re looking for.

Search Autocomplete

Continuing with the search improvements, search autocompletes tags, dates, and contacts as you type. Tags are sorted by frequency to make the most likely choices easier to reach.


We added new hotkeys to make more consistent with other apps and updated the Help to include the multiple hotkeys for each action. Check the Hotkeys section of the Help in to see the full list. These are the new hotkeys on Mac (use Alt on Windows):


  • Added “Open in New Pane” option to item context menu
  • Pressing Tab or Enter in search sets focus back to the pane
  • Improved connection stability

One fascinating thing we’ve learned while building is that everybody uses it differently. Everyone considers something different to be the “killer feature” and people have very different preferences in how items should be displayed. So today we are introducing display themes to make customizable to your individual preferences.

Display Themes

The “Outliner” theme is similar to other popular outliner apps.

The “Light” theme is more compact and minimal.


Clicking on an item’s bullet focuses that item. And as a fun bonus, tabbing and focusing are nicely animated.

Feedback please!

We would like to change the default theme to what our users like the most. We put in analytics to show us which settings are most popular, but we’d love to hear your feedback directly.

  • Which theme do you like the most?
  • Do you like headers to be bolded automatically or not?
  • Would you prefer the bullets and vertical lines be lighter or darker?

Google Calendar

Today we are releasing the Google Calendar plugin into Early Access! Google Calendar is a Premium plugin and it is also available as a free trial to our Community Members (anyone who has invited 5 or more people).

We are very excited to enable access to Google Calendar from as this seamlessly integrates with every calendar app out there. and Google Calendar synchronize in both directions, meaning you can manage your calendar with as well as work with your events from your favorite Calendar app.

This has been the most requested feature on our feature requests page and through our in-app feedback. Thank you to everyone who is helping to keep us pointed in the right direction to make everybody happier and more productive.

Let’s get into how’s Google Calendar plugin works:

Choose your calendars

Select all of the calendars you want to sync from and the one you want to sync to.

Calendar events in the agenda

Your Google Calendar events are in your Agenda, marked by a icon. You can edit existing events and add new events in the Agenda or you can drag them onto your lists. Use the button in the search box to show or hide Calendar events.

Sync your events

Press Ctrl + C on an item with a @date and the event gets added to your calendar, with a icon to show you that it’s synced. We don’t want to fill your calendar by automatically adding every @date item, but if you want to add many events to your calendar in bulk, you can highlight multiple items and press Ctrl + C to add them all at once.

Edit events anywhere, anytime syncs both ways, so you can edit events in or in your calendar and they’ll stay in sync everywhere. You can also add or modify events while offline and they will sync when you go back online.


We’ve added support for durations for Calendar events. You can add an event with a duration formatted in many different ways.

Help us improve

This is an Early Access release, meaning we want your feedback to get this feature right. Please let us know how you use your calendar with and how we can make this integration better. We put a a feedback form in the Early Access section of the settings. Thank you!

Search is one of’s most powerful features so we’ve upgraded it to be more intuitive and to support advanced search functions for our upcoming plugins.

With the new search you can easily set a minimum priority and show or hide completed and starred items. You can toggle these filters with the same hotkeys that you use on your lists.

Searching for dates is more powerful and easier to use. Searching for a @date will match all items that fall on that date rather than just matching the text. For example, a search for @tomorrow will show items on @10/27 or @tuesday.

Editable Agenda

We wanted the Agenda to be editable from the beginning, but it hasn’t been possible to make it a good experience until the changes we made in our performance update. With that done, we are happy to announce that items in the Agenda pane are now editable!

To make editing in the Agenda pane feel good, items need to move gracefully as their dates and priorities change instead of jumping around or disappearing completely if a date is invalid. We achieve this by:

  • Delaying moving an Agenda item until a different item is selected
  • Animating the item into its new position to make it clear what is changing.

Another benefit of being able to animate items as their positions change is that it makes it clearer what is happening during search. Also it looks really cool :).

This is important for the Google Calendar plugin to work well because it will allow you to change your Google Calendar event names or dates/times right in the Agenda. We’re doing final testing of the Google Calendar plugin now, so you’ll see it soon!
