• As we are putting the final touches on the Gmail plugin we are releasing a much requested feature - Notes! With notes you can easily add more context and information to items without cluttering your outline. Notes display with a preview of their first line as small gray text under an item.

    You can click on a note or press Shift + Enter to open the note editor where you can write notes as long as you would like.

    Notes are currently plain text, but we would like to make a more powerful rich note editor in the future. If you have any feedback or suggestions about what you'd like to see from Notes, we'd love to hear from you!

  • We've redesigned the Outline to make it easier to navigate large documents and renamed it to "Overview." The new Overview is a companion that opens next to a pane for a top level view of your lists. As you scroll your list it highlights and tracks your position in the document. Clicking any item in the Overview will scroll to it and dragging items onto the Overview moves them to the list they are dropped on.

    This is an important change for the Gmail plugin. The new Overview provides easy access to Gmail labels and allows you to quickly drag emails onto the Overview to label them and move them out of the Inbox.

    More updates on the Gmail plugin coming soon!

  • The Gmail plugin for Moo.do is nearing public beta! Moo.do will soon be a full desktop email client. You’ll be able to use Moo.do to read, write, organize, and schedule your emails right next to your events, tasks, and files.

    We have gotten a lot of great feedback from our private beta testers which has helped shape Moo.do into what we think is a great tool for working with email. We’re super excited about this and are working to get the Gmail plugin ready for you as quickly as possible. Here's a quick preview of how email looks inside Moo.do.

    More updates on the Gmail plugin coming soon!

  • Archived Pane

    Moo.do now has a way to view and restore archived items with the new Archived Pane. Any items you've ever archived since Moo.do 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 Moo.do 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 Moo.do 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 Moo.do 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 Moo.do 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?
