Can you make a change

In outlook 2010, the button labeled "Todoist" which opens the Todoist pane on the right side of the Outlook screen is located on the "Add-Ins" tab of the Ribbon Bar. The "Add to Project" button which opens choices of projects from which I can select is located on the Home tab of the Ribbon Bar.
I have to click the Add-In bar and click on the "Todoist" button to open the pane, then click on the Home tab and then click on the "Add to Project" button. I am unable to determine how to move the "Todoist" button from the Add-In tab to the Home tab.
Shouldn't the installation and set-up put these buttons on the same tab for ease of access?

Hello Michael,

We've moved the "Add to Todoist" button to the "Home" ribbon per request as the Home ribbon is used most often and it's more convenient to have this option at easily at hand.

Please note that you don't have to use the "Todoist" button on the Add-ins tab, if you leave the Todoist pane open, it should stay open permanently.

Best regards,

I close the Outlook "Todoist" pane after adding a task to a project because I want the screen space for the core function of my Outlook email client.
I do want to easily open and close it when I want to enter a task for a project. The buttons neceesary to open the Todoist pane, add a task and close the pane are located on two different Outlook tabs, making this process more cumbersome than it needs to be.
I can open and close the native Outlook task pane with a simple click of a "<" and a ">" button. Outlook makes it easy to add a task and move the task pane out of the way.
I enjoy the convenience of all of the other Todoist integration applications but the Outlook integration is too cumbersome.

Thank you very much for your feedback, we will consider adding the < and > button option to hide/show the Todoist plugin page similarly to Outlook's Tasks pane.

Best regards,
