Contact Manager


It might be out of scope of the program yet I would like to ask this issue still.
I do really appreciate the simplicity and functionality of the program and the program became a great tool for me for everyday intense usage.
Is it possible to embed a contact manager add-on? Having all the contacts at one place-todoist, in addition to organizing tasks?
Again, simplicity will be the base: not many info about the contact, just key parts:
Name; Email; Phone; Number, Mobile, Company, Website, Comments.
If this can be done, it might be the first step of tagging anyone on the contact list with the assigned task.
Just a question:)
Again, todoist is a great program. Thanks a lot for your value that you created.

Another idea; contact manager (or let's call contact list) might be an add-on feature, in which beneficiary will be charged. I do not know how many people would like to pay for such an add-on; yet if you think me as a member of focus group and ask my purchase decision, I can pay 10USD annually for such a contact-manager add-on, which will combine task and contacts management.

Hello ONUR,

thank you very much for your suggestion, we appreciate it and you're welcome to add it to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/

For now, as a workaround, you could create a separate project called "Contacts" and put all this information there. Please note that if you use an asterisk * in front of a task name, it will convert to a "header" - a task without a checkbox where you could store this information. All email addresses added to a task would also convert to links allowing you to easily send an email to someone.

Furthermore, if you're working in a team, you could assign people to tasks in our other product - a team-based project manager: https://wedoist.com

Best regards,

David, your suggestions are useful to some extent, however adding contacts as tasks doesn't allow to create links between tasks and contacts.
It would be very usefult to be able to assignt contacts to tasks as tasks for filtering and reference purposes.

Hi Ilya,

Thanks for the heads up! We will take this idea into consideration though we can't provide any timeframes yet.

Thanks again. Have a great day!

If you use google contacts you can integrate them with Zapier.com to have them added as tasks to todoist with links to the contact info.
