Todoist Offline


When I am offline and I open Todoist after starting the computer, it tries to get a connection with the Website and does not open the infopage.
If TODOIST is already open, and I go offline then, it works fine.

How can I fix this.

Thank you

Hello Susanne,

Unfortunately, that's how the HTML5 offline mode works - if you lose your connection with Todoist opened, you can continue working with it, if you're offline as you launch it, it won't work in most cases.

Our new Windows app (the update will be published soon) will launch offline, our mobile apps do too, but on other platforms, Todoist needs to connect first.

Best regards,

Daniel Seidel

Hello there,

will the Mac app at any time soon support offline launch?

Thank you!

I would not say anytime soon, but if HTML5 improves, then we do hope to improve it as well.

Has there been any progress on this? It seems that the Android and iOS apps can both be started when offline, so it is puzzling, to someone who knows nothing about HTML5, why this is not possible in the OS-X version.

Hi Roger,

We support offline in our Mac app as well. You just need to connect to the internet once. Just make sure you're running the latest version of our Mac app. :-)
