please go to:

In the menu at the left side, you'll find two lists: "My calendars" and "Other calendars". Open "Other calendars" and choose "Add" -> "Add by URL". A new window will appear where you'll be able to enter your Tosoid iCal feed.

You can find the URL on the Todoist website by going to Preferences -> General. It's at the bottom of the window.

Best regards,

How do you do this with Google's new look for the calendar?

Hello Mary,

in order to add your Todoist's tasks to Google Calendar, please go to the Todoist Preferences -> General and copy the iCal URL at the bottom of the window.

Next, go to https://www.google.com/calendar/ and in the menu on the left side, you'll find a small arrow icon next to "Other calendars". Click on it, choose "Add by URL" and paste the previously copied iCal URL from Todoist.

Best regards,

Thank you! I think I need to change the contrast on my monitor - that arrow is almost invisibile.

I've followed those steps and see my Todoist calendar in my gmail calendar, but nothing has integrated. Has anyone else had this problem?

Hello Lauren,

When you add the calendar, please don't wait for it to sync. Instead, close the browser and check back in in 24 hours (Google syncs these iCal feeds once a day).

Thank you David,
My calendar is now synced! Todoist has been a lifesaver with my job, so thanks!

Hi David,

I've tried the above advice, but get an error message saying that Google "cannot fetch the URL." Do you have any advice for next steps?

Hi Luke,

Sorry to hear you are having trouble with this. Would you try once more going to Todoist Settings -> General. Copy the iCal feed URL.

When you put it in Google Calendar and it just starts syncing, please close the browser (or the tab) and come back in 24 hours.

Let us know if the problem continues!

I think you're using the wrong email address. There's no one named Luke at this address.
