Import/Export Tasks as CSV?
I want to make sweeping adjustments to all my tasks at times. Is there a way to export my tasks to edit in Excel or some spreadsheet program to do this? Let's say I want to make a sweeping change to my due dates or I want to add the same note to a bunch of tasks, I think an excel spreadsheet would be a better use of my time than editing dozens of tasks one by one. I think the formula feature would be useful as well for editing large groups of tasks.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to export your task list into an CVS document. You can export them to plain text files if you want to duplicate some of them as shown in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Rl_CLGY_3o
But if you want to change the due dates of multiple tasks, please hold the CTRL key while clicking on them and then use "change date" from the menu which will appear at the top.
export function is a must for a lot of users. as long there is no solution with a standard (like csv), I won't switch to todois.
to clarify: import and export of projects and tasks is an absolutely must and can't be so complicated.
Yes, this is a terrible shortcoming of the current system.
also, without it, it makes transitions from other organizers (gqueues for example) very difficult (instead of just importing the csv file i would have to manually copy all the projects into todoist)
