Do you struggle to prioritize your tasks like most people? Especially when you have too many to complete but don’t know where to start? The Eisenhower Matrix also known as the Urgent-Important Matrix in this Excel template lets you decide and prioritize tasks by their Urgency and Importance level and helps you divide your tasks into categories such as what to do now, what to plan later, what to delegate and what to delete from your list.

The name comes from the former 34th President of the United States whose name was Dwight D. Eisenhower. Since he was faced with tough decisions all the time, this led him to invent the Eisenhower Matrix that we are currently using for time management today.Eiesenhower-Matrix-Template-Flow-S01-1 Now it is all easy to categorize your tasks depending on the importance and urgency level. According to the Eisenhower Matrix Template, you will be able to know what to do, decide, delegate, and delete.

Template Features:

Basically,  you will list down all the tasks you need to do in the Data section on the Dashboard.


Choose the importance and Urgency level as “Yes” or “No”.Later the tasks will automatically find their places in the Eisenhower box whether they are tasks to do, decide, delegate or delete. After that, you may put a “ ” or “✘” to the left side of the tasks if you have completed or not completed that particular task.


So, want to try and categorize your tasks and try to plan your to-do list like that?

    Useful template but It is confusing that the works done and clicked are in the same format as the jobs that have not been done.
    The works done should be shown with striketrough format.

    • Someka

      Hi Cass,

      First of all, thanks for your time spent writing a review! Although this is not a direct feature of the template you can actually use normal Excel functions to format the text with ‘striketrough’. To do so please unlock your sheet first with your password, as instructed here.
      After that simply select the done task(s) and modify it as below:


      Having this said, since our customer’s thoughts and requests very important for us, you can be sure that we will take your feature request into consideration.

      In addition, our other product Action Priority Matrix has a strikethrough principle so please feel free to take a look at that one as well.

      ok will do thanks, do your products work together? as one tool?

    • Someka

      Hi Cass,

      Our templates are all designed separately.
      Combining two or more templates will need comprehensive customizations. If you need more information on customization requests please get in touch with our team at

  8. Claudio Ernesto Manzati

    I bought this file but it says that it is blocked, I mean I cannot increase the number of lines. Have you any others file to buy with possibility to increase lines? or how can I add rows this existing file? I want to add new tasks to the matrix.

    • Someka

      Hi Claudio!

      Firstly, you should unlock the template (both worksheet and workbook) with the password you received inside the zip file. We have already explained how you can do it: How can I unlock the sheets? What is the password?
      Now, you will be able to click on the rightmost plus sign. Please contact us if you can’t find it!
      Once you do that, the data table will be enlarged automatically for the new entries. Thus, these new tasks will be placed into the correct area on the matrix.

      Hope our explanation helps you!

    • Claudio

      It worked! Thanks a lot. One more question: If I would like to increase the size of each color/area, I mean enlarging the whole matrix, is it also possible?

    • Someka

      Hi again Claudio,

      The matrix is capable to show new rows you have added previously. The template is created by considering the customers who would like to add new rows. So, you don’t have to do additional steps to reflect newly added tasks to the matrix.
      But, enlarging the matrix needs additional effort such as new formulas and adjustments. So, if you have quite well Excel knowledge, you will also do it.

      Otherwise, if you want us to do it for you, please have a look at this page: Hire an Excel Expert. Regards,

    Very useful for daily planning and free …. i’m impressed and will be looking at your other tools thanks

  10. Stephen Valdez

    This template works well for me but need some layout arrangements.Is it possible to switch the data section to the left side and place the 4 quadrants on the right side of the dashboard? If so, how would that be done?

    • Someka

      Hi Stephen,

      As our developer created the template, he placed the matrix on the left. So, all the functions and formulated cells are placed according to this order. It would be better not to move their places to avoid any template working issues. For further questions do not hesitate to contact us!

    • Someka

      Hi Pierre,
      First of all, thank you for your feedback. All comments are welcomed. I am sorry to hear that you are not happy with your download. Let me answer your points:

      – Our templates are free to use but we also offer a modifiable version to our customers who want to remove the logo, change the color etc. The amount that you pay for a modifiable version is the license cost that you are able to make some changes.

      – Additionally, we need your e-mail address to send the template to you. If you don’t want to get more e-mails from us, please let me know so we can unsubscribe you to not get anymore.

      – Our templates are not simple (mostly blank) excel sheets you can find online everywhere. We pour lots of time, effort, business know-how into our templates. They are quite different from a “simple excel sheet”. In fact, it is a lot cheaper compared to most software solutions on the market which does similar jobs.

      If you need any help to use our free templates, please let me know and if you have further questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Thanks!
