How do I enable GMail integration?


Hi. I've gone through some related threads and have a few questions as I've not been able to get the integration work:

1- I've disabled a few Labs add-on and now I get individual email links (i.e. https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox/137af9b516e65c8c). Is there anything else I need to tweak in the settings?

2- I have a premium Todoist account setup with my corp email ID. For personal use I have a free account setup with GMail. Does the GMail integration depends on a Todoist account setupwith GMail.

3- Is Todoist Anywhere a premium feature?

Hello Carlos,

if you're using Firefox or Chrome, please install the appropriate browser plugins (http://todoist.com/firefox or http://todoist.com/chrome ). If you're working on a different browser, you can use Todoist Anywhere.

After logging into your Todoist account on any of the browser plugins, please click on the "Show projects" link at the top and choose the project you'd like to add an email-task to. Once you enter the project, scroll down to the bottom of your task list and next to "Add task" and "Reorder", you should see a link saying "Add website as tasks" if you're browsing any website or "Add email as tasks" if you're viewing a GMail message.

Please let me know if you experience any further issues and specify at which point does the issue occur.

Best regards,

Carlos Cajina

Thank you David.

It's "working" now. I was looking for the "Add email" link that has the GMail icon (as shown in the video @ todoist.com/anywhere -2'09'')

I have a teeny issue. I use Fedora, and the Chrome extension only opens Chrome and not Chromium (I use Chromium usually). I know this is really splitting hairs here, but I thought I'd mention it.

Hi Gavin,

Most extensions should work in both Chrome & Chromium builds, please make sure you are on the Chrome Web Store within Chromium when adding the extension.


If you are still un-able to use our Chrome extension within Chromium please clarify with me which version of Chromium you are running.

Interesting, it is working just fine now. Actually I think it was my fault, it looks like I had my default browser as 'Chrome' when I installed the extension. I changed the default browser to 'Chromium', then re-installed the ToDoist extension and it works great now. Thank you.

It's logical but confusing if you are not familiar.

The problem is that you can only see the add email task if you have selected a project by choosing "show menu".

I guess there should be an indication that email add is not available on the today screen.

Hello David,

You don't have to enter a project to have access to this feature. It is also available through the "Quick Add" option (the plus sign in the top-right corner or the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Q). Therefore, it's always there when you try to add a task and these are the only 2 options to add a task - within a project or through the Quick Add feature.

Best regards,
