My goal with weekplan and the mobile world is to make it very fast to add a new task. I want it to be possible to be in the middle of a discussion and to quickly jot down a task without having to wait ages for the app to start. At the moment, the mobile app/view is not a reflection of that vision. It still takes too long to load (which I am hoping to improve once I introduce the offline mode). But I have found a great alternative, which speed is hard to beat: adding a task via SMS is almost as fast as writing it on a paper notebook.

How to start

  1. Add a new contact on your phone called “weekplan” with the mobile number +12077473362 (this is a US mobile number, there is no surcharge over the normal cost of a SMS to a US number).
  2. To link your phone number to your account, you simply need to send a SMS “Hi” to +12077473362.
  3. You will then receive instructions to link it to your weekplan account.

To add a task via SMS

Once your phone number has been registered, you will be able to add a task by sending “**Task **Whatever you want”:


To see the list of tasks for today

Simply send the command Today.


To mark a task as done

Simply send “**Done **NUMBER”. NUMBER being the number shown next to the next when you send the **Today **command.


Other commands

You can also send:

  • “Workspaces”: sends the list of workspaces in your account.
  • “Workspace NUMBER”: changes the current workspace.
  • “?”: Show the help.

This new feature is accessible to users with a PRO account. To easily upgrade your weekplan account, just go here.
