Anyone found a method to live-fully sync Todoist with Google calendar ?
Thanks & regards,
Unfortunately, we still have the same limitation that is imposed by Google.
Google provide the API that allows your team to have full sync,
If there is some difficulties I'm happy to lead a team to make it done :)
Could you please point me to the link where the API documentation can be found? I'd like to pass this along to our devs. Thanks in advance. :-)
Please find the links below:
Looking forward to hearing form you.
How to send you a private message ?
I have passed this along to our developers. Thank you for this again!
Thanks for that! I'm looking forward to use this improvement!
Yes - please let us know when this becomes available. Full Synch with Google Calendar will make Todoist a really fabulous tool.
OMG that would be amazing!
did you get any update from the developer ?
So far we haven't, but it's on the dev's to-do list and we'll look into this.
Take for example the software: my-priorities.com
Everything syncs perfectly, even if you change or delete tasks, it changes directly in the calendar that is not the case with Todoist.
This is the only thing that stops me on the use of Todoist.
I'm happy to hire someone to program a small app that does the sync job, then I can provide it as external service with minimum charges to cover the cost ............ my question is; would todoist give me a word "not tp provide this option for the coming 6 months" so I can cover the cost ?
As much as we appreciate users and people creating things with our API, and our follow base, we would not be able to cover the cost on another product that is not ours.
Unless I a mistaken with exactly what you want and what you are creating.
Actually, a mistaken with exactly what I want and what I will create.
1- I will use your API and Google's APIs.
2- I will lead it as a personal project and hire the needed people.
3- The solution will be available for anyone would like to buy it with minimum cost.
what I want from todoist.
1- confirm this feature will not be available soon (so I will not lose the invest :)
2- confirm todoist will not block my solution since I'm using a standard API.
I prefer to discuss it off-line, will try to reach you by email.
I've sent you an email so we can take this discussion offline.
Any further update on this? I have just given Todoist another try but don't think I will be staying with it unless I can get it to sync with Google calendar. It is just too limiting for me otherwise. Thanks
Same as Kyle
Unfortunately, we haven't heard any news from Google and are unsure if they're ever willing to address this issue, so we will consider looking into alternative solutions just for this calendar.
For now, as a workaround, you could try to use Zapier to sync with Google Calendar: https://todoist.com/blog/2014/03/todoist-is-now-on-zapier-connecting-tasks-to-over-280-apps/
Thanks David. I don't understand the issue being on Goggle's side as I have used (and still do) several competing in products that sync flawlessly. However I think they have all invested in syncing through the goggle app as they don't require any setup from the user other than entering the address and password for you Giggle account. I think To do is the oil dB be wise by on use that same approach and to also add direct syncing to Evernote.I have used Zapier before but for now I have chosen to use a small auto syncing app for the calendar and Taskclone for connecting To do is to Evernote. Those are not longterm solutions however due to the ongoing costs. The same goes for Zapier as those extra costs pushes the cost for Todoist past the premium price for other products having built-in integration.I still like the core functionality of Todoist and find more I like about it each time I use it. I just think that you need to continue with upgrading the product +as you have been) with things like the above.
I don't get it either how competing products can sync flawlessly with Google, but Todoist somehow cannot. If this is not a cop-out to blame Google, please explain why you can't sync with Google when competitors can.
If cost is an issue, why don't you make it a premium feature? There seems to be a lot of people who would upgrade (including me!)
I also would like to understand why the problem is on Google's side. I use Sunrise calendar, and it interacts flawlessly with Google Calendar--I can make a change on either platform and it immediately shows up in its counterpart.
I am, and will remain, a premium user, as ToDoist does more things the way that I want to do them than any other comparable. But the big hole is Calendar integration. It requires that I double a lot of effort. Please investigate how other programs--I mentioned Sunrise, but others have mentioned different programs--accomplish this.
Fully agree! Without the Google Sync its not really usable for me. Can the developers provide any idea about the time frame in which this can be solved??
Google Calender sync is really important for me as well. Google Tasks are noway near as good as Todoist but integration with Google Calendar is really important before we can roll this through our company.
+1 for Google Calendar sync :)
+1. and I'm lost as to how google is limitting todoist from achieving sync
I will add my +1. I see new apps like Timeful coming out that is very integrated with the calendar and makes me wonder whether I will renew. I am deeply ingrained using this app and the Todoist team is great at integrating new features. This feature seems to be pretty high up on the list of wanted features.
+1 I'll be dropping next month if we can't get this, and move on to something else.
+1 It is really necessary for me, too.
+3 for our users
+1, I left my decision to go with this product on google calender sync fix. Will wait for a month more. Hope it would be fixed by then.
Many people reported this more than a year ago and still there is no progress on this. really it's bad. Decided to move away from todoist. Just pass my wishes to your developers.
:) We need this feature, we REALLY need this feature :) I thought this was on Google's part, but since it isn't anymore, please do it? :)
I just started using Todoist and I think its amazing and I thought having premium allowed me to display my projects in my calendar. Good thing I am only using the 30 day trial period otherwise I was planning on buying the one year sub.
I'll let trial run out if they add this in the future, I'll consider subbing.
+1 Paid for the product this morning and it was the first thing i searched for in the documentation.
No reaction from the team for this long? This is no good omen.
The last answer is from 02.07. Is it really so hard to give a information / reply to this thread?
We're reading every reply in every thread and whenever we have any new information, we will post it right-away. Unfortunately, there's no info regarding this request so far, we will consider using Google's API to sync with their calendar in the future, for now we offer our iCal feed, though unfortunately Google will update it whenever they want to :-(
+1 Just downloaded the free trial and like the app.
Considering upgrading to premium already but then found this problem. Not sure if i can get involved with an app that won't update my calendar!
It's pretty clear there are lots of people wanting this, and even if they aren't, they have just accommodated to the idea of not having this feature, but really, we should have this... A list of tasks with calendar integration just makes sense... I'm going to try out the trial when school begins, and with this feature todoist would be the todo app to beat... :)
+1 GCal and IFTTT integration is whats stopping me going premium
I've actually moved to trying out GTasks on android and GoTasks on iPad, both integrate with Google's native tasks. Both support creating notes, due dates and recurring events with alert reminders. You can show multiple task lists at the same time, too.
You have to be comfortable with your mobile devices because that's where I have to enter any recurring event (as Google's native tasks won't do it). And you have to be willing to refresh your Google Calendar in your browser (on desktop) if you go from mobile device right to desktop to make sure everything is synced. So far so good, it's worked really well.
If Todoist figures out how to integrate, I'll move back.
roushdy.shawma: did you create your bridging solution? Or did anyone else? Would love to help test!
+1 I remember that year or two ago Todoist Team was to develop their own calendar module. But then for some reason it stopped to be a priority... I really like Todoist and get used to it. But I also need to integrate my tasks with electronic, cloud-based calendar (till now I was using paper calendar). Thus I really hope that Todoist Team will propose something (own module, or effective integration) very soon. Otherwise I will have to look for some other app...
+1, starting to regret renewing premium.
Is there a priority list for the todoist team? I'd say this one should get to the top easily... :)
I will buy the Premium account as soon as Todoist is integrated with Google Calendar.
Although I actually don't see the Google integration as critical (I use it extensively, but for private stuff, whereas I use todoist for business), it would avoid Todoist falling down the pecking order in terms of apps that do this kind of thing.
I'm coming to the end of a Premium trial and the lack of Google calendar integration is the only reason I won't be upgrading. Everything else is ahead of the competition and - calendar sync in place - I'd happily pay more than £18/year for a solution so good.
+1 - First thing I checked for - will just use a google tasks app if todoist doesn't implement this.
Has anyone found an alternative calendar that syncs with Todoist more frequently than Google Calendar? I'm willing to abandon Google Calendar if there's a calendar app (web or desktop) that syncs with Todoist.
Sunrise Calendar has launched realtime sync with todoist on IOS.
The staff featured some integration workarounds in this blogpost: https://todoist.com/blog/2014/07/6-awesome-apps-and-services-integrated-with-todoist/
I'm going to check them out now.
need this to work thanks
Sunrise Calendar looks promising, although Todoist integration doesn't work
on Android yet. It's still a nice app and will probably do the trick for me
most of the time...but it would still be good to have direct integration
with Google Calendar.

I've been using GQueues, and paying them money, for several months now. The system isn't perfect - I like what I see in Todoist better - but I *live* by my Google calendar. I'm a coach with automated scheduling software, so I can't move away from Gcal, and since GQueues puts everything right there, I don't have to look away from my calendar to see my tasks. As with many others, if you fix this, I'm on board, but if not, I'm staying with GQueues.
will go premium if it syncs with Google calender & task
I've been a premium user for 2 years, and will discontinue if this is not resolved. I have a new job and it is crucial that the changes on todoist update to Gcal. If not fixed I will switch to Magneto. Thanks, please do anything you can to resolve.
Just seen "Magneto" and it is seriously early days but the google Calendar and Outlook Integration is looking good.
Methinks a suspiciously absent response from ToDoist on this thread.
Have been experimenting with TaskClone to join ToDoist, Calendar, and Evernote. Not perfect in any sense, but promising.
Lots of entries since I last wrote, so I'm gonna bump this...
As a premium user, I've found that I simply keep up with tasks better if I use Google Tasks in conjunction with Gmail and Google Calendar. So I've experimented and found this:
For Android, use GTasks (NOT GoTasks): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.dayup.gtask&hl=en
For iPad/iPhone, use GoTasks: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gotasks-google-tasks-client/id389113399?mt=8
I have Android phone, iPad mini, but use Google Calendar and Gmail on both platforms.These work great and sync with Google Tasks. They add the ability to add recurring tasks. So far it's worked out really well.
Would happily pay for premium. Can't sync w/ Google calendar. Sorry guys, you lost me.
I really love todoist, and it has been really helpful with my productivity. However, the lack of integration with other tools comparing to competitors have in fact been a barrier for me and our team to be more productive. This unfortunately is becoming a deal breaker. It's really a shame. I understand there must be difficulty for the team, and you might not be able to share this openly with the community. I hope you'll manage to figure out this issue in the future.
We can only wait for Sunrise Calendar integration... I'd say that will come sooner than Google Calendar integration...
I'm using Sunrise calender, my Google calender and Todoist together. The Todoist tasks with duedate and my google calender items show up in Sunrise. I can drag and drop tasks in Sunrise, and they sync with Todoist (due date changes).
It's working fine.
The thing I hope they'll add is the ability to cross off tasks from within Sunrise.
