Hello Saulius,

unfortunately, it's not possible to manually switch off the auto-focus in the Todoist for Outlook add-in.

We are aware of some issues with Todoist stealing the focus, especially if it's snapped to any other fixed position than the default right side of the Outlook window and we will fix them in future updates of this plugin.

Sorry for any inconvenience it might have caused you.

As for the issue with adding emails as tasks, you should be able to add an email even without opening the message just by selecting the email in your Outlook inbox.

Please tell me:
- Which version of Outlook are you using?
- Which operating system are you using?
- When exactly does the "add email" option disappear? The moment you hover over the plugin when you've selected an email or when you try to click on the link?

Best regards,

please tell me:
- When does it happen that you can't add a new project?
- Does it happen always from a specific view or search result?

If you encounter this issue again, please try to access this site: http://todoist.com/?mini=1 using Internet Explorer and tell me if it doesn't work there either.

Best regards,

I also have the problem where Add Project does not work in the add-in. I have to use the web. Using Outlook 2007.

The mini=1 URL does work in IE. The add-in does not work.
