Hello,

Unfortunately, there's currently no interaction with Todoist and Google Tasks. You can use Todoist as an alternative to Google Tasks thanks to our variety of browser plugins and Gmail integration, but you can't transfer or interact with the tasks in Google's own "Tasks" feature.


Best regards,
David

I agree; this would be a great option.

wow, that's a dealbreaker. Why even mention the Google account at sign up then?

Hello Bruce,

The Google Sign-up option allows you to quickly log in on all your devices without having to create and remember another email/password combination for Todoist.

Please try one of our browser plugins to see how much better using Todoist as an alternative to Google Tasks is :)


Best regards,
David

Can I do a one time load of Todoist with my google tasks so that I don't need to reenter all of them? I'd give Todoist a try if I could do this first.

Hello Dan,

Unfortunately, that's not possible, but we'll look into providing such solution in the future.

OK. No sync with Google task. Delete app.

Very Disappointed, your premium offers full sync across platforms, sync does not mean add on!! ie it only syncs itself across hardware...paid for premium please arrange refund.

Hello Tristram,

We're sorry to hear that. We never advertise any options to sync any data with Google Tasks and unfortunately, due to the lack of many features that Todoist has, but Google Tasks doesn't, it may be near-impossible to implement full synchronization between these two (a lot of data - projects, sub-task levels, labels etc. would be lost in the process).

If you wish to receive a refund, please send us the order reference ID of your payment.


Best regards,
David

To me, without Todoist Tasks appearing in my Google Calendar, Todoist is completely useless. I don't want to have multiple apps to see what I have to work on today and what meetings I have scheduled today.

Sorry, but useless.

Nejc,

You *can* sync Todoist with your Google Calendar, but the Google calendar only 'refreshes' once every twenty-four hours (this is a Google Calendar issue, not a Todoist issue).

This thread concerns the inability of Todoist to sync with Google Tasks, not Google Calendar.

I think todoist should be synced with Google Task full stop. Differences in feature are an issue but it can be solved smartly.

I would like to add support for todoist here. Whether they choose or choose not to add this is up to them. They have much, much more to bring to the table than google here. Google has left this are wide open for years as has EVERY WINDOWS VENDOR.
Only Mac and IOS have had the overly priced but beautiful software from Omnifolks, but we can live in the Apple bubble forever, or want to.
So, cheers to Todoist. When I saw it, on every platform but the ones that suck, I about lost it.
Do google tasks or don't. Believe me I've tried to use Google Tasks. I do EVERYTHING google, but Google hasn't even done tasks seriously.

Todoist has, if you give them the reasonably priced chance to prove it to you, the first real chance to try a GTD methodology. My single quibble is the inability to change a task to a project, and perhaps to search for an contextless task.

No Windows Phone 8 or Windows 8 Metro apps. Like no one is using those at all. Poor. I really liked the interface but the lack of support for syncing across apps is a killer. AnyDo has Tasks sync - what's the big issue?
