Today

Today’s schedule in your menu bar

The perfect companion to the built-in Calendar app. Just the events for today. Click an event to show it in the Calendar app. It also gives you a quick way to directly join an upcoming video call.

This app is intentionally simple. For more advanced needs, check out Dato.

It integrates with Calendar, Fantastical, and BusyCal.

Requires macOS 13 or later.


Frequently Asked Questions

I have a feature request, bug report, or some feedback

Send it here.

The app does not show up in the menu bar

macOS hides menu bar apps when there is no space left in the menu bar. This is a common problem on MacBooks with a notch. Try quitting some menu bar apps to free up space. If this does not solve it, try quitting Bartender if you have it installed.

Check out my free Velja app. It has built-in support for this without any setup. It can even open links to Zoom and Microsoft Teams directly in their desktop app.

I have Fantastical set as my default calendar app but Today still opens Calendar

There is a macOS bug which makes the default calendar app setting not work. To work around this, drag an event from the Calendar app into Finder, right-click on it, select “Get Info”, select your calendar in the “Open with” field, and click “Change All”.

Can you add x feature?

This app is a personal experiment to make the simplest calendar app possible. I'm happy to consider requests, but I'm also trying to hard keep the app simple.

Can the app show notifications for events?

You can set up notifications for events in the Calendar app.

Can the app show notifications with a “Join” button for video calls?

I don't plan to add this. You can get this feature in my Dato app.

Can the app show the upcoming event in the menu bar?

I don't plan to add this. You can get this feature in my Dato app (with a lot of customizability).

Can you make the app show events for more days?

“Today” 😁

Can you add more menu bar icons?

I'm happy to consider requests. You can find icons here.

I added a calendar to the Calendar app but it doesn't show up in the app

You need to enable the calendar in the app settings.

Can you add support for Google Calendar / Outlook 365 / Exchange?

It's already supported. Just add your calendars to the built-in Calendar app and then enable those calendars in the app settings.

My Google Calendar does not update in the app

You might have to re-authenticate your Google account. Open the Calendar app's settings, go to the “Accounts” pane, and try to remove and re-add the Google account.

Can you add some widgets?

I don't plan to add this. Very few users actually use widgets on macOS, so it's not worth the effort for a free app. macOS already has some built-in calendar widgets. And you can get more widgets with my Dato app.

Can you support iOS?

I plan to do that at some point when the app is more mature.

How does it compare to MeetingBar?

MeetingBar is mainly for video calls and has a gadzillion settings and features around that. Today has a cleaner look and is opinionated so you don't have to make so many choices. If all you need is a quick way to join video calls, Today is probably what you want. If you need more advanced features, MeetingBar or Dato may be a better choice.

How does it compare to Meeter?

Meeter is mainly for video calls. It's also quite buggy and does not follow macOS conventions. Today has a cleaner look and is opinionated so you don't have to make so many choices. If all you need is a quick way to join video calls, Today is probably what you want. If you need more advanced features, MeetingBar or Dato may be a better choice.

How can I export, import, sync, or backup the settings?

See this guide.

Can you localize the app into my language?

I don't have any immediate plans to localize the app.

Where can I find the changelog?

Go here and click “Version History”.
