Outlook for Mac 2011

VR

Is there an Todoist for Mac Outlook: 2011? The only Outlook Todoist application I see is for Windows.

If there isn't a Outlook Mac app, can you export tasks to the Outlook calendar in the same way that you can e-mail tasks to Todoist?

Hello Valerie,

unfortunately, our Outlook plugin only works with Outlook for Windows, but thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it and will consider releasing a version for Outlook for Mac. You're welcome to add a request to our Votebox:
http://todoist.com/Vote/

As for task export - yes, you can synchronize your Todoist's task with the Outlook Calendar using the iCal feed. Please go to Todoist Preferences -> General Settings and click on the calendar icon at the bottom of this window. This should automatically add your Todoist iCal feed to Outlook or ask you which application you'd like to use it if you're using different calendar software.


Best regards,
David

Is Outlook for Mac compatibility something that is being worked on?

Hello Rod,

although it's not our top-priority project right now, we will certainly consider it in future development.

Please make todoist for a Mac. As a mac user I feel completely slighted by all the plugins out there for organization. Boomerang, the Email Game, other project softwares... nobody is supporting mac users with the good products!!

if i can't integrate, no matter how awesome todoist is, i won't be able to justify keeping using it. without being in outlook, todoist is just a fancier pen and paper list... which is what i already use and then i have to do all my scheduling separately.

Please make the plug in for mac outlook!!!

Juan,

As David stated above, we can't give any time frame or information to when such plugin will be available.

Unfortunately, the best we can do right now is tell you that we do know it's a fairly requested plugin, and it's should happen at some point.

Thanks,
Brendon.

It is far from a full-fledged plugin, but I wrote a simple AppleScript to
turn messages in Outlook 2011 into tasks in the Todoist Inbox. I find it
very useful.

The code is on github, if anyone has questions about how to get it working,
just let me know. github.com/joehooper/todoist-outlook-2011

Hi Joe,

Great work. I installed the script per your description.
I get an error -10004 in applescript and nothing seems to happen.

Can you check that there are no line breaks in the todoist-token.txt file?
This will break the script, I am going to add some error checking next
time I get a chance to work on this.

Also, I have not tested this from a Mac user profile that does not have
administrator privileges. So if you are using it from a non-admin account,
that could be the problem.

This is the error I am currently receiving. Is it solely the API token that is in the .txt file or do we have to preface it with anything?

JH

It looks like a problem with your token file. It should contain only the token and be a plain text file. You may have saved it in rich text format.

Steps to create the todoist-token.txt file on a mac:
1 - Open TextEdit and create a new document
2 - Go to Todoist Settings - Account tab and copy your API token only
3 - Paste the API token into TextEdit
4 - In Text edit click Format -> Make Plain Text
5 - Save the file as todoist-token.txt in the Outlook Script Menu Items folder

Hope this helps!

Hi folks,

Do you still plan to develop an Outlook for Mac plugin? I would appreciate that very much, and I think many other Mac users would, too. Is there a time schedule for that project?

Thanky for your reply.

Kind regards,

Marco
