What is the Inbox?

The Inbox keeps track of every thread you’re involved in across all your channels. Check in every day to stay on top of everything that’s relevant to you.

How the Inbox works

Whenever you’re notified about a new thread or comment, it will show up at the top of your Inbox. You can keep track of how many unread threads are in your Inbox by the number beside the Inbox. An orange dot also appears on your Threads tab when you have unread threads.



  1. Inbox.
  2. Mark all as read.
  3. List of all threads in your Inbox.
  4. The For you view: List of unread threads in your Inbox, sorted by how important they are to you (based on factors such as how active you are in the thread, whether you've been directly mentioned in the thread, and so on).
  5. The Recent view: List of unread threads, sorted by when the thread was last updated.
  6. List of already read threads.

Tips for using the Inbox

  • If you read a thread and want to follow up with it later, mark it as unread. It will stay in at the top of your Inbox until you read it again.
  • Save your really important threads by starring them. They’ll be updated in your Starred list (as well as your Inbox).
  • You can also save important threads by directly adding them as a Todoist task.


Can I clear my Inbox?

We don't have support for this right now. However, we recognize that the Inbox can get cluttered with the many conversations that come your way, and may consider addressing this in the future.

However, you can mark all your Inbox threads as read by clicking the checkmark icon in the top right:
