I am using the feature of loading tasks into external calendar. It worked well but today I cannot synchronize . I am using google calendar and lighting plugin in the Thundrbird. I also cannot open the url given on on the todoist settings page.

Hello,

This issue may be caused by a temporary server overload. Please try to add the iCal feed to your Google Calendar and once you see the yellow "Importing calendar..." message - close the calendar without waiting for it. Google will attempt multiple times to sync it and it should succeed after a while (no longer than 12-24 hours).


Best regards,
David

Thank you for your answer. I've got additional question. By the way of iCal problem I've noticed that the link provided in the todoist setting page is changing each time I am opening it. Could you explain the logic how it is working ? Does it need to change this link in the client application as well ? If yes how often should I update this link in the client application as google calendar or Thunderbird plugin ?

Jarosław,

You don't need to change the feed at all, it will pull the current tasks each time your calendar software will refresh it and it will do so automatically or on demand.


Best regards,
David
