Does Todoist plan to have direct syncing capabilities with Google Calendar?

EW

I like the todoist interface but haven't adopted it as my task list organizer because I don't like the ICal workaround for syncing with my Google Calendar.

Hello Eric,

we're sorry for this inconvenience, at this point we don't know of any direct workaround how to bypass Google's own settings for the refresh rate of their Calendar App although we're looking for a solution and as soon as one's available - we will surely implement it to make the sync instant on Google Calendar.

Please note that the iCal feed itself it live and pretty much every other calendar software except Google Calendar will resync upon refresh and the changes on your task list would be reflected instantly.


Best regards,
David

Hi,

Would it not be possible to provide the option of using the Google Calendar API somehow?
I'm not sure what is required authentication-wise, but if the "Google Authorizations" options have been enabled, you should be OK to access a lot of things - right?

Hello Thor,

we are working on it and we hope we can improve the syncing with Google Calendar. Currently, the iCal feed will only sync once a day and this is beyond our control, but we will certainly do whatever is possible to find a better solution in the future.


Best regards,
David
