Adding Todoist Projects as Frowarding email addresses in GMAIL

JP

1) Get project email from Todoist (for any project).
2) Add it as a GMAIL forwarding address in GMAIL.
3) A confirmation is sent to Todoist as a project task.
4) Copy the confirmation code from the project task in Todoist.
5) Paste the confirmation code from Todoist into the verify box in GMAIL.
6) An error pops up in GMAIL that says, "You do not have the forwarding address project.xxxxx.xxxxxxx@todoist.net".

I have the same error popping up in Gmail when I paste the confirmation code in Gmail. The link from the email does not work as well - I get a server error page with "Numeric code: 124"

I'm having the same issue as Jay Perry.

I also have @goole.com added to as an email address allowed to send messages to Todoist.

Any help would be appreciated!

Any news on this?

Sending emails direct to Todoist to create tasks is great feature and an excellent way of keeping your inbox tidy.

Sadly, we don't have any updates from our developers yet. I've added you the list of users to update once a fix is available. Really sorry for the inconvenience.

iOS 8, iphone + Gmail

On the Mac: Create a todoist task from an email in Gmail
Go to iPhone>Todoist and select the task. Click on the link to find the specific task.
This brings Gmail to the forground but prompts for activation code (Gmail app is already working on the iPhone).
Load new activation code from Google text
Gmail opens without active link to the task/email
Go back to Todoist in iOS and reclick link. Instead of bringing you to the email you are looking for in Gmail you have to enter a new Gmail activation code. This cycle repeats continuously.

What am I doing wrong?

thanks
Auguste

Hi,

Try logging out of your account and back in. That being said, opening the Gmail app from a link created with our Gmail Plugin does not open the app, but the website.

Hi Brendon, thanks for your feedback. To clarify I am creating a todo from
an email in gmail using the todoist button - on my mac.

then using the todoist app on my iphone i scroll down to the email todo
item I created earlier and click on it. since it is a link to a specific
email in gmail it tries to open the iOS gmail app on my iPhone. this seems
proper. For some reason gmail launches and than requests an activation
code. I don't understand this because the gmail app is already working on
my iphone. Anyway I put in the activation code and gmail launces. However
the link is not referenced. so i go back to Todoist on my iPhone and click
on the same todo item expecting that todoist will open the specific email
that the todo item was created from.

This is how it works on the mac. if i create a todo using the todoist
button on a mac, todoist creates the todo item. if i then click on the
todo/email item in todoist it open the mail client. I'm trying to do the
same thing on the iphone. are you sayig it is not designed to work that way?

Hi,

I will need to confirm with the developer, as sometimes things do get added that we aren't told (things get slipped through) but no up till now its not supported.

I will let you know what I find out.

Brendon
