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.

Hi David,

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 ?

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.

Hello,

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.

Replied on Aug 17, 2014 - 07:04 UTC

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.

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... :)

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.

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...

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.

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.

The only problem I see is that Google Calendar only updates iCal subscription once per day... Therefore your changes can't get reflected instantly. If you really want to get an instant update, just use Sunrise Calendar as many have already said. It basically looks the same as Google Calendar but has better integrations and is less buggy

Yep. Google is the market leader that many use and a telling us to change for Todoist(s) convience is not a good solution. Neither is Todoist constantly blaming Google for the problem.

The ical feed is unworkable. The key line at the end of the video is that your events will be updated "the next time your calendar checks its feed." With Google, there's no telling when that will be. They say once ever 24 hours, but it's unpredictable. I tried to use it, and found it useless.
As for Sunrise, I use that. Unfortunately, unless something changed in the past day or two with no announcement, that only works on iOS. If and when the Android version can sync with Sunrise, I'll be all over it, and will have no reason to complain about this... other than the fact that ToDoist still doesn't seem to get the point that ical is an unacceptable solution--and an out-of-date one. After all, there's a list of programs in this thread that have implemented two-way sync with Google Calendar (including Sunrise...)

GK, I found that the Android version actually does work with Todoist. You
just have to set it up from the web version first :)

I really like Sunrise, for what it's worth.

I've been playing with the idea of creating a third-party service for 2-way
sync between Todoist and Google Calendar and charging money for it (not
much, obviously). I'm on the fence about it because obviously the revenue
would dry up as soon as Todoist implemented it. But maybe it'd be enough
and take them long enough to make it worth it before that day came?

If you think so, here is a mailing list I am using to gauge interest:

On a new thread I asked Todoist if they were going to fix the Google Sync problem. They are it seems. For specifics see the echange/thread here:

KK, Thank you for pointing out that it works with Sunrise in Android now. I will continue to support ToDoist integration with Google Calendar, but since I use Sunrise I'm satisfied. There are a few functions that work in GCal that don't quite translate to Sunrise, but it's perfect for me needs.

And B, I read that thread and was actually confused as to whether they were still looking at the iCal solution or not. The last sentence of his response made it sound like they're still locked in that insufficient paradigm. I hope not... But as for the other part of the conversation: I agree that one-way sync (i.e., changes in ToDoist showing up immediately in the Calendar) would be enough for most. I would believe that making it two-way would be a nightmare. I hope that someday even two-way sync would be implemented (for example, dragging a task from one day to another in the calendar and having it sync immediately to ToDoist), but I can see how that would be a major project.

And just for the record: I've tried many of the solutions out there, and even without the sync to GCal, ToDoist makes the most sense for me, with my workflow etc. I've been a premium user for awhile now, and never considered leaving. But the sync with Sunrise has made it even better than it was.

Shame, I also really liked Todoist but if customers (premium user) are being ignored this long, it doesn't fill me full of confidence. At the beginning of this thread someone actually offered to write an app for TDist and they obviously haven't bothered to take him up on it.

there is only one way you can make a company react to that issue.

one star ratings all over the playstore from every one.
nobody will bother with this program if it has an 3,0 in average

Well, unless they advertise "native Google Calendar integration" or
something, I'm not going to go as far as giving them a shill rating.
Ultimately I want MORE people to use the app so it gets more
attention/development, good for me as a consumer.

Please, pretty please, start using Google API :)

Wake up TODOIST! The competition is beating you to it.
(and for some of us it's time to renew their premium status ;))

From: https://support.wunderlist.com/customer/portal/articles/1710196-how-to-show-wunderlist-tasks-in-google-calendar-ical-or-outlook

Improvements are on the way
Calendar integration has been the one of the most requested features, so we wanted to let you get your hands on it as soon as possible. In this first version, the integration itself is fairly simple and currently only syncs one way (from Wunderlist to your calendar). But the good news is, we're continuing to work on making this feature better for you, ...

At this point, I'd say that the lack of response (read: "We have heard you and it is on our roadmap" or at least something to that effect) should indicate the bottom line from Todoist support. Time to move on.

I will say once more for those who are new to the thread (and then bid you all adieu), I now use GTasks on Android and GoTasks on iPad Mini, and they sync with Google Tasks. It's worked great, although you have to set up your recurring tasks on the apps, and I check them off on my phone just in case. Great widget for Android phone, and really quick entering of tasks, very intuitive (I use GTasks 90% of the time because it's on my phone).

And in doing all of that, I've found myself not using tasks on my calendar anymore, I just use my phone (at my desk or on the go). So in a way, I have Todoist's lack of progress on this issue to thank, because I've actually come up with a more nimble, streamlined approach to tasking. YMMV, and greatly.

That's all, folks! ;-)

@Ciroo
As opposed to other frequently requested features, they stated that this will be implemented in the near future (http://todoist.com/Support/show/43938/)

I came from Doit, and I didn't appreciate their real time GCal sync until I realized that Todoist sync is almost unusable. However, many other features beat Doit. Purposely withholding a way to export/backup my data is what caused me to leave.
