where is the integration with Outlook tasks?

JW

I'm confused! I purchased todoist because the website says"Get the only to-do app that integrates seamlessly into Outlook."

Yet, when I try to figure out how to do it, I find the question and response belowon your support page.

The whole reason I purchased this app was to integrate Outlook tasks into a mobile app that "seamlessly integrates with Outlook."

If I cannot do that, then I believe I deserve a refund.!



Export Outlook task list to Todoist

I am used to work with Outlook task list, being synced through iCloud with iPad and iPhone. Since iOS7 the Reminder App is user-unfriendly. Therefore i want to change to Todoist. How do i get my Outlook task list in Todoist and how do I keep it synced with iPhone and iPad?

Thank you in advance for your reply!
Guido.

Hello Guido,

Unfortunately, Todoist currently doesn't offer any integration with Outlook's Tasks feature, but we may consider adding such option in future updates and you're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/194/

For now, you could try to re-add your tasks from Outlook to Todoist. If you use Todoist's web-app and enter a project, you can quickly add one task after another, if you don't have too many tasks, you could try this.


Best regards,
David

I'm equally as frustrated.

Hello Julie,

As the website says, Todoist does integrate with Outlook. You can get the Outlook plugin from https://todoist.com/outlook and you'll see Todoist within Outlook allowing you to add emails as tasks and access all your Todoist tasks from there.

However, it does not integrate with Outlook's own "Tasks" feature.

We're sorry for the misunderstanding. If this type of integration is not what you were looking for, you can of course receive a refund. To do so, please send us the order reference ID of your payment.


Best regards,
David

Thanks for the quick reply. I ordered the app through iTunes. I haven't gotten my receipt yet. If I give you my iTunes account email, can you take care of it? (I would want to do that through a private email of course.)

thank you.

Julie,

Unfortunately, in that case we can't refund it. Unlike all other payment methods we offer, the Apple Store is the only one that doesn't allow developers to send refunds through it and makes all payment (incl. in-app purchases) subject to Apple's terms of service.

Nonetheless, you can contact Apple directly and they will surely agree to refund 70% of the purchase price.


Best regards,
David

30 seconds after installing the ToDoIst Outlook extension, the very first thing I try to do is migrate/ integrate my existing Outlook tasks with ToDoIst and no joy. I come here only find that ToDoIst actually doesn't "integrate seamlessly" with Outlook. Sorry but I have to give this a fail.

Sad.

This is sad-Its hard to believe how many people develop products that don't integrate with MS Outlook!!

fyi: I currently use Outlook 2010, and earlier versions to manage my N.A. business. I don't want todoist or other Apps to actually 'integrate' with Outlook tasks, as that would make for more problems. Outlook has enough problems as it is. Where as "Add-in's" like todoist.com is welcome. Now, all we need is for a Calendar, Contacts, Task and Notes and Journal apps to merge into one great PIM. But I believe that's no longer possible.

Thanks for the note
I use Outlook as my primary tool as we have our own exchange server
We have zero problems with Outlook as a mail/contact /calendar/task problem
It just doesn't do Projects and could afford a little more customization

I really wish todoist would have recognized that a lot of business people use Outlook

I too read the promo info about Todoist integrating with Outlook and (I thought) GMail Tasks off Android, but it does neither. I use Outlook extensively, and certainly Outlook Tasks - I have for years, and I want to continue to do so. I expected to be able to sync my Android platform with GMail and have Outlook and Android synced overall, but Todoist doesn't do either of these sync functions.

I was very confident from the Todoist promo it would do what I needed, so now I feel quite mislead, and out of pocket $AUD30.99......

I just installed the Outlook plugin, then realized that if I add an email via this to todoist that I can only get to the email from the Outlook plugin. This is pretty limiting...

I uninstalled and am now just emailing emails that need to be tasks from Outlook to a ToDoist project. Much more effective if you're using multiple platforms.

I have found that it works better for me to use eeminders combined with Pocket Informant-this is a very powerful tool!
I want my tasks in the same program that my emails and calendar are in for quick efficient overviews-Pocket Informant works across all platforms and gathers up my Tasks-appointments and anything date driven and brings it into a daily summary view
