Hello Stanley,

unfortunately, it's not possible right now (the Outlook plugin would allow you to add email as tasks, though), but thank you for your suggestion, we appreciate it and will consider adding such feature in future development.

You're welcome to add a feature request to our Votebox:

Best regards,

I would need the Todoist outlook app to be able to accept outlook appointments as tasks in todoist app.

Has any progress be made to develop this yet?

Hi Frank,

Unfortunately we haven't made any progress into this as of now, if we do. We are trying to fix our current major issues before doing anything else.

We will let you know when this does happen :)

Any update on this? I would like to put my meetings and appointments from my calendar as a todoist item. I sometimes lose track of appointments and have to toggle between my calendar and todoist.

Hello Jennifer,

Unfortunately, that's not possible right now, but please note that you can have appointments directly in Todoist without Outlook. Every task can have a due time if you enter something like: "Friday at 2pm" or "tomorrow @ 16:30". These tasks will have the due time clearly shown on the left side of the task name and on your date-based views will always stay on top to make sure you won't miss any appointment :-)

Add them in two places doesn't really sound appealing. I need a calendar for my appointments. Thank you anyway.

I'm curious if this is going to be implemented at some point - the todoist outlook add in has introduced "add todoist" to the context menu when right clicking on calendar appointments - I assume this is an oversight (clicking it doesn't seem to have any effect).

Personally I'd like this feature to be introduced, so when I'm invited to a meeting I can right click to create the meeting, then add the sub tasks I need to do prior to the meeting. Manually creating the meeting in todoist is ok, but feels a little clunky given the rest of the integration.

I also saw "add todoist" in the context menu of the outlook calendar. It would be great if Todoist would get this-one working one day.

Having to add your appointments twice: in outlook AND Todoist is a hassle and a timekiller indeed.

This would be a great feature! I plan my whole day in my outlook calendar and cannot match it directly with todoist tasks...
