I have a list of tasks on Gmail tasks. How can I import these? When I created the account I used the google account information but it did not import the tasks.
Hi Jaime,We do not sync/import with any other service at this time. You can use the Premium feature of Templates (wrench icon top right within the project, export as template/import) but that is a simple TXT file. You would need to formate it as 1 line - 1 taskWe will consider adding more import features in the future.Regards,Brendon.
Thank you+1 for ImportIn a service I used to use it supported task import by sending an email to your account.I would use Excel to generate a big list of tasks.Dates were calculated, task names were generated then I'd format it for the email and so quickly I could populate dozens of task with their dates, importance, which list (project) they belonged to, etc. It was epic and saved probably hours of input per month.
Hello Frank,You can send tasks via email to Todoist. Right-click on any project and go to "Email tasks to this project" for more details about this feature and the unique email address for this project :-)Best regards,David
The point of emailing tasks used to be the ability to add a task when your task manager was out of reach.Todoist (and good job on this!) is already just about everywhere.The point is to add a large number of tasks at once.I generate dozens and dozens of tasks in a spreadsheet but I don't use todoist for them as the benefit wouldn't outweigh the work to do it so there they sit and are managed.Please change the format so that multiple tasks can be in the body of the emailIt's just an extra step in its current format.
Hello Frank,If you want to import tasks from a spreadsheet, you can also copy/paste them to a TXT file, and import as a template. One line in this document will become one task.Best regards,David
Thanks. This looks very promising but I see no help on the topic.Where can I read about all the syntax for these templates? :-)
Frank,There is no documentation for it, but you can create a project, add one task to it with a note a label and a date and then export it - you'll see how it's formatted in the TXT file :-) We'll consider creating documentation for it in the future.Best regards,David
Can this be done from within a mobile TD app (iOS in my case), or does one have to use the web interface to import a list of tasks?Thanks,Erin
Hello Erin,Our importing option is currently only available on the web-version of Todoist.Best regards,David
