Questions about task assignments mith ToDoist BAsic/ Premium

YM

Hello, I have some questions about Todoist:

Is it possible to Assign a task to some one that has Outlook (2013) ,but do not has Todoist installed on his machine?
If I customize a template for me in Todoist, will this template be readable on the PC/ Tablet/ Mobil, without installed ToDoist?

Greetings from a sunny Norway

Hi Yngve,

>> Is it possible to Assign a task to some one that has Outlook (2013) ,but do not has Todoist installed on his machine?

In order for you to assign task in Todoist, the other users has to have a Todoist account and use at least one of the platform that we support (web, mobile, desktop, plug-ins). Please note that "assigning tasks" is a built-in feature that allows you to assign a user on a particular tasks and get notified if he/she completes it.

Of course, you can assign it to the other user and let him know through other means and you can just then use a label to monitor your assigned task. (For example, "@assigned_to_john)

Project templates are only importable with Todoist. This just a simple text file and you can open with any text any editor but it's not designed to easily read this way. It is meant to be used for importing templates within Todoist.

If you have further question, please don't hesitate to asks. :-)

Regards,

Clyde
