Can we use todoist offline?

CM

I love using todoist. I think it's the best system out there, but I'd like to know if you can use todoist without internet access.

For example, if I get on a plane or go to another country (or somewhere else without internet access or phone service), the I've found the todoist platform will not pull up the previous tasks that I had up a short while before when I DID have internet access.

I like how the "gmail offline" application loads your inbox and allows users to respond to email when you don't have internet access.

Is there a way to use todoist offline, similar to how gmail offline works?

Hello Cy,

If you're using Todoist on the web, you can access it offline on Chrome through this URL: http://todoist.com/app?v=84

If you're using one of our mobile apps - for Android http://todoist.com/android or the iPhone http://todoist.com/iphone they both can be used without an internet connection, but please make sure that you're always logged in otherwise you'll need to be online to authorize the login.


Best regards,
David

Hello,

As on all platforms, if you lose your internet connection while using Todoist, you can continue to use it offline, it will automatically switch to offline mode.


Best regards,
David

Hello Denis,

That's correct for Premium accounts. The Premium version will try to sync when you're online automatically, on the free version, you have to access the app and use the sync button, but this will of course sync all changes with your account.


Best regards,
David

Hi David, Is there a switch so I can use Todoist in offline mode only? i.e. NOT synch with the cloud and other devices?

Hi Saurin,

No, unfortunately there is no full offline mode, or option to go into it, only once you lose connection.

Thanks,
Brendon.

It would be a really useful feature to be able to look at the last synched todoist when starting the app without internet access.

I'm probably almost unique in that I only really use MacOS todoist, occasionally popping online via the web.

I'd love to be able to use todoist on the train on my laptop when I'm working without using the wifi.

I don't understand it. I'm a premium user, today I worked ONline, on the desktop app, made a task, closed the lid of my macbook pro, went to my office, opened my laptop, and the task was gone? It also was'nt on my ipad, iphone, and not on the web. What went wrong?

To expound above: I'm very satisfied about Todoist. This is the first time I met a problem! It only was a very extensive note, and I can't remember it entirely :-(

Roel,

Your settings didn't shut down the app? Are you on the latest version from http://todoist.com/mac? This should not happen anymore.

Brendon

Hi Brendon
On 4.1(147).
No, todoist was still open when I opened my MacBook, only the task was gone.
Strange... Could it be I didn't save it? However, it still should be there then I assume...
Tried to reproduce: made a new task, and closed lid during editing, without saving. After opening the MBP and logging in again the task was still there, in editing mode.

I have had good experience with this on my android. I will use it on a plane for example and when i land, it syncs up perfectly fine.

Hello Remco,

Unfortunately not. Only active projects and tasks (along with their notes) are stored in the offline cache. Data such as completed tasks or files stored on our servers (or Google Drive or Dropbox) require an internet connection to access them.

ANY NEWS ??.

Hello Stephan,

Todoist can be accessed offline as long as you don't manually log out from your account as after that, logging back in won't be possible without a connection.

This applies to all platforms so even our full web-app can be accessed offline through https://todoist.com/app if you're logged into your account through the browser you're using to access it (as only then the whole app would be cached in your browser's offline storage).


Regards,
David

So no news (on a feature that wunderlist etc have for years!) Thanks for the info though.

Stephan,

The news is that this feature has been implemented already :-) As I've said, you can use our apps, plugins or even the web app completely offline, only you can't log out from your account as you won't be able to re-authorize. We must keep authorization an online process to prevent anyone from accessing your data anytime without logging in, but given that Todoist will always keep you logged in, unless you log out manually, you'll be able to use it fully offline.


Regards,
David

Stephen,

Also, to clarify, what Brendon mentioned in 2014 is no longer applicable so you don't have to be online first and then lose connection to access the app, you can access it while you're already offline, though again - assuming you don't log out from the app :-)


Regards,
David
