Keep your ever-growing project list neat and organized with sub-projects. For example, you might create “parent” projects called “Work” and “Personal” and then organize various sub-projects underneath each one.

Turn a project into a sub-project

Todoist currently supports sub-projects on three indent levels. To turn a project into a sub-project:

  1. Hover over a project.
  2. Drag the project to the left or right to change its indent level.


About sub-projects in teams

In teams, you can neither create a sub-project nor turn an existing team project into a sub-project.

This is because project hierarchies aren’t synced across accounts (for example: a shared sub-project could be a parent project for a collaborator).
