Offline mode


Todoist desperately needs an offline option for all platforms.

If you travel or otherwise find yourself without connectivity, then the absence of offline mode is a dealbreaker.

AMEN! This is a must in order to keep me using.

I go offline often, and without an offline mode I have to keep my tasks elsewhere as well, which defeats the purpose of todoist.

Thanks for a great product!

I definitely agree... without an offline version todoist is way behind - and I would really love to continue using it....

I use "doings" on my ipod touch for offline it works great, look for it in the app store by typing in todoist

Todoist with off-line option will be a killer-app!

Off-line feature is critical and would place Todoist ahead of Wunderlist for simplicity, a desktop feature, and mobile use off-line.

I agree!! This one gets my vote...

Replied on Oct 26, 2011 - 21:45

I didn't vote for this feature, but I welcome the fact that it's being worked on. It'll certainly be good to attend a meeting knowing that one can access Todoist even if there's no internet connection.

One question: will this offline mode work equally well on Android, Symbian, Windows etc mobile phones, and Windows/Mac desktops and/or all browsers? If so, then I guess everyone will be happy. If not, then it will obviously be only those users who have the relevant hardware or software.

Hello Martin,

we're planning on using the offline mode in our native Todoist Mobile app which will be available for all smartphones which are capable of running apps.

As for the desktop solution - it will work with any browser that can take advantage of the offline storage capabilities of HTML5.

There's a comparison of layout engines supporting HTML5 on Wikipedia:

Two suggestions:

1. It would help if the offline mode -- either on the mobile site or any of the apps -- includes a search bar so you could pull up tasks that you tagged.

2. It would also help if it included functionality that recognized phone numbers, so you could click on the number to have it automatically place a phone call.

yes want an offline mode atleast for windows desktop version

Replied on May 11, 2012 - 01:16

I agree an offline program that could run on the background and show notices if wanted, and actualize the data onto todoist servers when online same for cellphones .
What do you guys think?

And vote if you haven't already!

I won't be renewing my subscription unless Todoist come up with Offline Mode - for PC, MAC and all major mobile platforms.

I don't think offline compatibly is a luxury. For heavens sake its a to-do app and no one can be 24x7 connected to the internet all the time. And you are talking html5 etc etc for long time. We don'care, get it done.

There are a good number of smart todo apps out there, free and paid which offers this functionality.

Its taking too much time todoist - Wakeup. I welcome other members to use some strong words!

Replied on Jul 16, 2012 - 21:35

Thanks for your comment, Deepu. The same applies for me. No renewal without offline version for mac and windows.

Hello Felix,

thank you for your report. This will be fixed on launch as we will completely replace the old version with the HTML5 version. All links to the sub-domain should work correctly by then.

we're proud to announce that with today's introduction of the new HTML5-based Todoist, you can access your tasks offline using the web-app which makes Todoist the first fully HTML5 compatible task manager http://todoist.com/html5

This has also greatly improved Todoist's performance. Thanks to offline storage, you can manage your to-do list instantly with no loading times whatsoever.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed in this thread. Your continued support is our inspiration and we will always keep improving our product to meet your needs and offer the best user experience.

Best regards,

Since this development I cannot change my tasks anymore. I changed the status from "a specific date" to "no date" and the date keeps coming back.

Can you fix that please?

David Trey staff
Replied on Jul 25, 2012 - 10:29


please tell me - did you edit a single task using the input box or using the multi-select option? There is currently an issue with multi-selecting tasks and changing their dates this way.

If you've used the input box, though, please tell me:
- What exact due date did the task have before?
- Did you pick the "no date" option from the mini-calendar or removed the date with Backspace?
- Does this issue occur in online, offline or both modes?
- Which browser are you using?
- Have you cleared your cache, offline storage and application data in your browser?

Best regards,

Replied on Jul 25, 2012 - 12:24

ok, what I did: I had around 7 tasks which had the date 25 july. I changed it to no date using the backspace. thus all the changed tasks seemed to be changed but "came back" again.

just now I changed the date to 27 july - that worked.

I just tested it online.

I am using google chrome.

No, I didn't clear the cache.

Replied on Jul 25, 2012 - 12:25

oh, and I edited each task on its own

The Mac app does not seem to have this? I was on a plane yesterday and could not access my todo list. I am running version 3.1(122).

David Trey staff
Replied on Jul 18, 2013 - 12:24


The Mac app does work offline, but it will have to be opened and not logged out as you access it. That is - if you're logged in and won't quit (close) the app, then as you access it when disconnected, you'll be able to work with it offline.

Please can we have true off-line working on the Mac?

I rely on todoist when at sea and the probability of a computer restart over the season is high. I would then have to wait until ashore to find an internet connection to restart todoist!

Replied on Nov 08, 2013 - 12:45

This remains an issue with any app using HTML5. True offline storage means just that, access to my task lists when offline. Requiring an initial connection or an always on status makes it useless as an offline tool. This alone means I can't sign-up for your service.

It's a nice service otherwise.

Tony Voss premium

I sort of understand the issue. But I note that browsers can store stuff so they can restore it off-line (think Apple's Safari Reading List).

I hope it might be possible to get ToDoist to work from a saved copy until an on-line connection became available.

But I am not an HTML5 programmer, so this is just a thought. I would love to know whether it is technically possible.
