Does the business plan offer centralized admin control like Basecamp?
Hi Tony,Yes, we have an Admin panel where you can control users and other details. You can read more about it here. https://todoist.com/blog/2014/06/announcing-todoist-for-business-for-workplace-productivity/Regards,Brendon.
I was really excited about ToDoist for Business until I read this:"With Todoist for Business, you can create up to 80 active projects, have200 active tasks per project and 50 collaborators per project."These seem like very odd/arbitrary limits. Why are they there and how doyou just get an unlimited workplace? These types of limits don't appeal toserious business use cases.When compared to Basecamp's much less expensive unlimited plan they arevery confining and that is surprising since you are charging per user permonth.We are looking to replace Basecamp with a much more mobile friendlysolution but this seems to be a deal breaker. :-(Please advise.
Tony,We are sorry you feel that way. Our main idea behind this is for organization, and for getting things done, as we are a To-Do app. So if we make it so you have to break down projects, and tasks, into more manageable pieces, that is a very good tactic for getting the work needed done. As the overall limit on how many tasks you can have is quite high.There was more reason for this originally, which was related to performance, but that is not so much the case anymore.Regards,Brendon.
So can we have an unlimited plan? We have a lot more active clients thanyour limits would allow.
Hello Tony,Unfortunately, unlimited plans are currently not available.Please let us know how many users would you want to invite to each project?Best regards,David
Tony,Also, let us know where did you read this information because the maximum number of projects you can have on a Premium Business account is 200 and not 80.Best regards,David
I read it in the blog post link I was sent in this support string. Thereshouldn't be arbitrary limits like this unless the apps can't handle more.Limits add too much extra management overhead from an admin perspective (iemaking projects active and inactive and not exceeding a certain number).Too bad. I hope ToDoist can offer a plan to compete with Basecamp at somepoint in the near future. I absolutely love your focus on building anexcellent mobile native app set in addition to your web app - this is anarea where Basecamp lags badly. Please let us know if this changes.
Is it true that there is a limit of active projects and tasks as suggested above (80/200)? I read about these limits here:http://techcrunch.com/2014/06/03/popular-task-management-software-todoist-launches-its-first-enterprise-product/Thanks,Thor
Thor,As David said, its 200.Regards,Brendon.
I think that's plenty, more than I can handle. ;-)
What's the difference between Premium and Business. Seems like it has all the same features.
Deena,https://todoist.com/business/pricing will show you the main differences. Regards,Brendon.
Is there an easy way to migrate projects and tasks from Premium to Business? What does Todoist recommend?
Thor,There is no migration. It's the same account that you already have, but the details of what you can do with it are different. So, your data stays in tact. Regards,Brendon.
