No synchronization


I have Todoist installed on my desktop, and I have many projects and tasks entered therein. I just installed Todoist on my android phone (Samsung Galaxy SII). After logging into the phone app, I realized with some horror that of course there is no synchronization whatsoever (not that I was forewarned of this when I downloaded the desktop Todoist app on 12/18/2012). How can I move my projects/tasks to either the Firefox or Chrome extension both to save my data as well as to sync this same data with the Todoist phone app?

You're not going to want to read this, but Any.do (which I'm also testing and comparing to Todoist), accomplished the entire synchronization process elegantly, with no glitches whatsoever.

Hello Molly,

All our platforms synchronize all your tasks and projects. You should have full access to all your tasks across the web-app, all our plugins, add-ons and all mobile apps.

Please make sure that you're using the same Todoist account and that you're logging in using the same method on all platforms. For example - if you've set up your Todoist account by typing in your email/password combination, but then used the "Log in with Google Account" method on Android, a new Todoist account linked to your Google account might have been created which could cause the lack of synchronization as they're treated as 2 separate accounts.

Also, please note that on a free account, synchronization is manual and you'll need to tap the circular arrow icon at the top to sync your data.

Best regards,
