Todoist, iCloud and Outlook

PV

I use iCloud. I have Todosit installed on all Apple devices and as a MS Outlook plugin. When I create or edit a new project on one Apple device, all my other Apple devices update instantly. However, I cannot get my Outlook plugin to reflect the changes. Only when I close and re-open Outlook do the updates appear. I hit the Cloud "Refresh" button in Outlook and that did not help.

Also, when I create/edit a project in the Outlook plugin, all my Apple devices update instantly.

What's up with that?

Hello Paul,

please tell me, if you right-click the top bar of the Outlook's plugin and choose "Reload" from the context menu, do you see the changes afterwards?


Best regards,
David

David - when I originally installed Todoist, I thought it was odd that my other plugins appeared on the top bar but Todoist did not. What am I not doing? Should I re-install? I tried the add-ins section in options and found Todoist but didn't see anyway to make it appear in the bar. The other plugins showed up automatically.

Thanks...

Paul,

please clarify - do you see the Todoist plugin windows in Outlook, on the right side showing your task list? Also, please note that the Todoist for Outlook plugin requires Microsoft Outlook 2007 for Windows or later and a version for Outlook for Mac has not been released.

If you see the Todoist plugin in Outlook on the right side, the bar I'm referring to is just the top bar of the plugin itself not the tool bar of Outlook.

If you're not seeing the plugin on the right side, please go to the add-ins section, then click "Go" next to the "COM Add-ins" drop-down menu and make sure that the check box next to OutlookTodoist is checked.


Best regards,
David

I have Outlook 2010, Yes - I'm definitely seeing the Todoist pane with all the projects, but it's not showing in the ribbon at the top of Outlook with my other 2 plugins. My other plugins panes are visible and also show in the ribbon at the top of Outlook. The Todoist project pane is visible, but doesn't show in the top ribbon of Outlook like my other plugins do. I just uninstalled/restart/re-installed but got same results. I clicked on top bar of the Todoist pane but can't see the
Reload" option. When I right-click on the very top bar of the Todoist viewing pane, nothing happens.

The add-in box is checked for Todoist. Also, I'm using the free version.

OK - I found the fix. You go get another cup of coffee, stare at your monitor for a few minutes, then Voila! There's the Refresh option....

Duh...
