Link To-Do dates with Timeline

New member | Level 2

Sorry if this question has been asked already. I just wonder if it is possible to sync to-do list (tasks with dates) in a timeline - that would be very useful. Every time you create a to-do list with date to have the same entry in your timeline. Otherwise you need to do this twice!?

Hi there, currently there isn’t a way to do what you’re looking for, however I can forward this suggestion to our dev team for their consideration in the future!

This would be an amazing and useful feature!

Also, draging and dropping to-do task with due date onto the timeline would be great (and/or timeline entry to task).

Thanks, Dejan

This is huge for our team also - we actually thought that the timelines were a way to assign tasks, until we realized that it wasn't working. It doesn't seem useful to assign something in a timeline unless it shows up in there To-Dos and/or syncs in their calendar. Thanks!

Would make the timeline feature much more useful!

Is there an update on whether this feature is being prioritized? I thought this feature was what timeline was about that made me want to try it out.

Please make timeline items show up on the To Do list. Not having that feature renders Timelines far less useful. Thanks.

Thanks for your idea! 
This is not something the team are considering right now.
However, we regularly re-evaluate ideas and will update you if anything changes!

It would be awesome if to-do deadlines synced or were automatically added to the timeline. Maybe as a greyed out underlay or icon?


Hey Hey @chrisae01

To Do's added in your timeline automatically! nerd face Automation is always a good idea.  R
