Using multiple Gmail accounts on an Android phone.

JO

Hello -

I would like to have a Todoist list for work and personal tasks. I have the TD accounts in place. How do I add both of these to my Android phone. Currently I only see one list.

Thanks!

Hello Joseph,

Based on what login credentials you use, you'll log into one or the other account. If both were linked to Gmail, you'll need to make sure your device is using the right Gmail account and you'll be logged into it.

Alternatively, you could log in on the web, go to Settings -> Account and set a password for these accounts. This will allow you to use the manual login method in Todoist and sign-in without Google Authorization.


Best regards,
David

I don't understand this part of David's reply:

"If both were linked to Gmail, you'll need to make sure your device is using the right Gmail account and you'll be logged into it."

My Android phone is logged-in to two Gmail accounts (work and personal) simultaneously, which appears incompatible with "make sure your device is using the right Gmail account".

If I have a TD account for each Gmail account, how do I switch between TD accounts on the phone?

Philip,

We have not discovered this issue before. Most users will only have one Gmail account attached to their Android Phone.

Though, if you are just trying to sign in with Google, it should show you both accounts and you can pick which one. Are you saying when you sign out..and click the SIgn in with Google, it auto picks?


Regards,
Brendon

Thanks for the response. That seems to work.

It would be a huge improvement if you could add a "Switch account" entry to Settings, to streamline the logout/login again process.
