Hello Tarrey,

we're glad you enjoy our application.

We have another application for team-based work where you can assign tasks to other team members. It's called Wedoist and you can find it here: http://wedoist.com/

We hope you'll enjoy it as well.

Best regards,

I tried wedoist and it seemed a bit too much for us. We like Todoist a lot as it is clean and simple to use. We would far rather have team sharing integrated into Todoist - this is a feature that we would pay for.

Hello Ken,

although we are planning an integration of Todoist and Wedoist, for now please take a look at some videos from out guided tours through Wedoist and see how simple it really is :)


Best regards,

Hi. Although I applaud the idea behind Wedoist, I am willing to pay for Todoist+Wedoist integration (or at least have Todoist users share tasks).

+1 to Diego...
sharing and delegating tasks/tasklists is a must...

I would also like for todoist to have sharing capabilities.. and would also pay for said feature.

todoist is so much better than wedoist, the task organization abilities of Todoist are simply not present in the new application. Build on your strengths and let us add users to a todoist account!

Hi David,

I am happy user and also got my team into todoish. Certainly wedoish is not as much attractive as todoish.

How do I automatically share his task with mine in todoish.

As of today he exports the template to me and then I import it manually. This will certainly not work in long run.

Hello Chirag,

We're currently working on merging Todoist and Wedoist so that tasks added through Wedoist will appear on your list in Todoist and vice-versa with many great options this update will introduce.

For now, you can use the "Send email as task" feature to add a task to someone else's list via email. Simply right-click on a project, choose "Email tasks to this project" from the context menu and in this window, you'll see the unique email address of this project and at the bottom, you can add someone else's email addresses which will be accepted for adding tasks. If you share your project's email address with your team and everyone adds each others' addresses to their lists, you could send tasks this way.

Alternatively, you could use Wedoist with one of Todoist's browser plugins. Each time you open a discussion about a task or a status update, the URL will point directly to the particular discussion. This way, you can use the "Add website as task" feature in Todoist to create a task pointing to it.

Best regards,

Hi David,

Any updates on Todoist integration with Wedoist?

I am in search of a family/small group cross-platform (iOS + BB10) task management tools that group members can see each other's list and assign tasks to each other. Is that a direction you guys may head to?

Hi Hua,

Unfortunately there are no major updates yet, but we are currently testing sharing internally. So the feature is coming. Though we do not currently support BB10.

Hi Brendon,

I actually found Todoist app in BlackBerry App World. It looks great.

Hi David / Brendon,

Any updates on this? After struggling with other collaborative tools we came across todoist and really love it.

Will go to paid version as soon as sharing and assigning tasks to other members is a live feature ;-)

Thanks again for all your hard work!

Yes, our major update has been released and you can now share projects with people. Please sign out and back in again to see the changes.

Hi Brendon thanks for your reply - I can see how I can share projects with others and I can also see that under filters there is an options to filter tasks by 'Assigned to others' so there must be a way now to asign a task (not a project) to someone else - but how???

Is this a feature in the paid version only?

Forgive my ignorance ;-)

Many thanks,

You can only assign a task from within a share project. We will consider allowing single task sharing in future updates.

For all other noobs - I worked out that you can only assign tasks to others when the other person has accepted the invite. You can then add it to others or yourself.

Hope this helps ;-)

So if I have someone in a project I created, how can they assign a task back to me?

Hi Arp,

The same way you assign tasks to people. When creating/editing the task there is going to be the assign option for them.
