Can i import multiple tasks ?

H

Hi,
I use todist on the ipad and also the web app in the office and on my Imac at home. I cannot install todoist on the office machine as it is locked - no external applications allowed.

I have a list of tasks, I can put then in a table, test doc, word excel etc.
I would like to be able format them and import them all directly to todiest, rather than type them all in by hand again.
is this posisble.
if so, how?
thanks,
Ben

Hello Ben,

Although external apps can't be installed in your office, can you use web-apps? Please try to access your account through https://todoist.com

If this won't work, you can actually import tasks, but mainly without due dates or other properties. To do so, simply store/save them in a basic TXT file and each line in this file will become a separate task. You can import them as shown in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Rl_CLGY_3o


Best regards,
David

on both the website and on the ipad, there is not the cogwheel - the funtionality talked about in the video is not present? am i missing something?

This video was made before we've changed the cog to a different icon, but if you enter a project, you will see an icon in the same place the cog was, it will also say "Task Actions" when you hover over it and you'll find the import feature there.


Best regards,
