How do sync Postbox and Gmail lists?

R

I can't figure out how to sync the todoist from my postbox app and the gmail todoist. I use both platforms! Can someone help? ANd also - how can I get it to sync with my todoist app on my iphone? I thought todoist would sync across the platforms but I can't find any directions of how to do that. thanks in advance. :-)

Hi,

There is nothing that needs to be done, just download and install each app for each platform, and log into the same account in each place.

So, Toodist.com/postbox, Todoist,com/gmail and Todoist.com/iPhone to get the files needed to install.

Regards,
Brendon.

I downloaded and installed the gmail app, postbox app and the iphone app. The gmail and iphone sync and are the same - so I can add something in either app and it will sync. However, on the postbox app, it is a different list and I can't see how to log in with the same account info as my gmail and iphone settings. Thank you in advance. I appreciate your help.

Hi,

If you click on the gear icon in the top right within the Postbox window, what happens? That should give the option to sign out and make sure its the same.

Hi Brandon. That worked! THANKS. HOWEVER, I have a new problem. When I go the the todoist iphone app and click on a todo that originated with an email (and I want to see the email) it makes me log in to gmail/google before I can see the email. Also, it just logs me into the gmail app on my phone and not the email itself (make sense?) THANK YOU IN ADVANCE again. Really appreciate your help.

Hi,

Are you already signed in within Gmail? As of now, our links will only open up within the browser, but it should take you to the email.

As for Postbox, you are clicking on the link within Postbox, or trying to open a task from Postbox, in another location? As it will only work from within Postbox.

Regards,
Brendon.

On the phone: I'm already signed in to Gmail but when I am in todoist and click a link that's an email, it makes me re-sign in (which is going to be impossible to do each time.) In postbox: when I click the link, it does NOT take me to the email within postbox. The only thing that seems to work is either the todoist list within gmail (which takes me right to the correct email) or the web version of todoist takes me to gmail when I click on the email link. Maybe I'm trying to do too much? I thought it would sync across all platforms and so I was very excited about this.

Hi,

We do have some issues when opening up links but have had no luck in finding the cause, it should bring you directly to the email. As for clients such as Postbox, it should work within Postbox no problem, but again, sadly, we are having quite a few issues with our email clients. Which we hope to resolve at some point, hopefully not long.

Have you tried emailing a project instead? This may work better for you. https://todoist.com/blog/2013/01/zero-inbox-policy-with-todoist/

Hi Brandon. I really appreciate knowing that I'm not alone :) Hope it all gets fixed as this program looks so close to what I need. I will absolutely try to email the project. Thanks for your help. Jill
