Outlook

CD

My Outlook plugin is no longer a plugin- it just opens the website inside of outlook where the plugin used to be. I can browse your site or even get off to other sites, inside of Outlook. There is NO functionality from Outlook this way.

Outlook 2013 on Win 8.

Hello Chris,

Please try to log out of the app through the Outlook plugin, then close Outlook, clear Internet Explorer's cache and cookies (the plugin uses IE to connect) and then re-open Outlook and it should redirect you to the correct "mini" version of Todoist.

If it won't, try to use the "Logout Todoist" button in the navigation bar at the top of Outlook (add-ins tab) and let me know if this helps.


Best regards,
David

I see the same thing. The addin basically opens up a browser within outlook and points to the Todoist site.

Some Suggestions:
1. Reformat the UI so that it is slimmer. Right now it's taking a lot of horizontal space
2. It would be great if it would integrate with Outlook's built-in "Follow Up" feature. If this is not possible, replace the built in Follow Up feature by having the a new Follow Up go straight into Tooist
3. When clicking the button Todoist button and the Todoist panel is collapsed, the panel is forced back open again for the user to enter additional information.

In general, I feel like the Todoist integration with outlook was not something that was very well designed - which is surprising since you guys seem to put a lot of thought into user experience for your other platforms. This is a little disappointing.
