09 Jun Artful Agenda: The Best To-Do List App
Artful Agenda is so much more than just a digital planning app. From creating schedules to tracking your water intake, there are a number of features available to organize your life and help you be productive. The app’s lists, tasks, and goals functions are some of its most versatile elements. This versatility is the reason why Artful Agenda is the best to-do list app!
Why Do You Need a To-Do List?
To-do lists enhance your productivity and help organize your ideas. They help you break down your big goals into smaller, more manageable tasks. To-do lists can be monthly, weekly, or daily, and Artful Agenda is able to help you keep track of all of these.
Using to-do lists means you won’t forget what you need to do. It allows you to keep track of the things you have already done. Keeping everything in a to-do list can also assist with establishing your priorities.
Create Actionable and Specific Tasks
To get the most out of any to-do list, make sure you clarify exactly what needs to be done. Consider giving each item on your list a verb so that it’s actionable, and don’t forget to add a due date when appropriate. You also want to consider the priority of each item when making your list.
Try asking yourself questions like these while making your to-do list:
- What is most important for me to get done?
- What can be broken down into smaller tasks?
- Does anything need to be done immediately?
- What can wait until tomorrow/later if it needs to?
Writing out your list in Artful Agenda helps you turn what you need to do into actionable tasks that can help you accomplish your goals. If you need to know why goal setting is important, check out our blog post on that!
Organize Your To-Do List with Headings and Subheadings
Make your to-do list super organized with our List function’s ability to add headings and subheadings to your to-do list. This makes it so much easier to organize what you need to do and emphasize what your priorities are. “Chores” and “Family” are good examples of lists that can have several headers and subheaders under them for all the related tasks that need to be done. For example, on your Chores list, you can break it down by room, or on your Family list, you can organize it by person.
Artful Agenda also allows you to break down your to-do list in the Monthly, Weekly and Daily views in the app, so you can track your progress on bigger projects while also being able to check off the individual tasks that are needed to complete those projects.
Assign Your Tasks to a Certain Day
One of the coolest features in Artful Agenda is the ability to assign your tasks to certain days and reassign tasks to different days as needed. We love the adaptability this provides for tasks that don’t have concrete deadlines.
This makes it easy to break down your to-do list, especially for lists that are long or when you know your time is limited. You can also time-block on your Artful Agenda event grid to make sure you have time designated to accomplishing your tasks.
Arrange Your To-Do List Based on Priority
Ask yourself what is most important for you to get done. Artful Agenda’s Priority Tasks section in the daily view allows you to set aside the things that are most important for you to accomplish that day. This gives you flexibility while still providing accountability for the most important things that need to be done.
There are many digital to-do list apps, but Artful Agenda is one of the best (and best looking) options out there! So if you are looking for style and functionality in a to-do list, Artful Agenda is perfect for you.

Why can’t I move my other tasks to the priority tasks?

Hi Stephanie! If you drag a task by the checkmark, you can drag it into the priority tasks area.

When you have multiple lists can they be rearranged in the drop down?

can you move tasks from the lists to the calendar?
Katy AllenPosted at 16:42h, 03 January
Hi Ashley! If you go to your lists section and hover over an item, you should see a clock icon appear. Click this and you will be able to assign a date to the item on your list. You can then find this item in your tasks section on that given date.

Is there a maximum number of lists you can have? I have three and don’t seem to be able to add any more.
Katy AllenPosted at 16:27h, 13 January
Hi Kristine! There is not a maximum for lists. Sounds like something our tech support team could help you with. You can submit a tech support ticket through the app or you can email our support team firstname.lastname@example.org. They should be able to help you!

You have GREAT sharing capabilities for the calendar but do you have anything that would share family to do lists? I love my artful agenda for the calendar and personal to do lists but I really need something to sync with my family. We have used apps like any list to share in the past- I would love not to have two different things!

Hi Melissa! This is definitely something we want to explore for possible future development. We know that many people like to collaborate with their family or friends in this way.
