Migrating over from another tool to Todoist



I consider moving to Todoist after few years of using Remember The Milk. I'd like to import all my projects and tasks, labels and dates, notes and attachments. Any hints on how to do that?

Hello Tomek,

Unfortunately, that's not possible. All data will have to be typed in manually. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best regards,

This flaw is simply preventing myself to stay with todoist permanently. I need to transfer tasks from toodledo. There are couple of hundreds in my system. I like simplicity, graphics, outlook plugin, chrome plugin but I just can not retype what I have... Pity... Import would help you get more customers for sure...

I agree with Jaroslav....should have a way to import tasks.

I found todoist is better than my current tool (Gqueus), and would like to migrate all my stuff - maybe bacup restore can help (but from a file if possible)

Hello Roushdy,

With Todoist Premium, you can import up to 150 tasks from a TXT file. Please take a look at this video showing how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Rl_CLGY_3o

David - that says export/import templates from inside Todoist

Yes that is correct, but it can be used to import tasks if you format a TXT file correctly. 1 line = 1 task.
