How to install Todoist for Outlook?


I've installed Todoist for Outlook, but I see no apparent changes to Outlook. Am I missing a step? How do I get Todoist to show up within Outlook? It works on my phone, Windows download, etc. - just having an issue installing the Outlook add-in. Thanks for your help.

Hello Carrie,

Please go to your system's Control Panel -> Programs and Features and uninstall "OutlookTodoist". Then please make sure you have these two components installed on your computer:

- Microsoft .NET Framework 4 ( http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=9cfb2d51-5ff4-4491-b0e5-b386f32c0992 )
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools (http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=35594 )

and then download and install a new updated version of our plugin incl. an error reporting system from this location: https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/6d48d3aaeb65b9bca3dc3068008d08ec/as/OutlookTodoist.RC.exe and let us know if you'll see the Todoist plugin pane on the right side of Outlook (when you open Outlook after the installation).

Best regards,

Hi David,
I tried your detailed instructions to Carrie but didn't work for me. Any other suggestions?

Hello Luigi,

please try to install this version (updated today): https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/4213960e2dd34efbcebad4fee1d4d855/as/OutlookTodoist.RC.exe and let us know if the issue persists.

If you still won't see the Todoist plugin pane in Outlook, please go to Outlook's Options -> Add-ins (or Trust Center if you're using Outlook 2007), click "Go" next to "COM Add-ins" at the bottom and check the box next to "OutlookTodoist" on this list to activate it. If for some reason you'll see an error message asking you if you'd like to send an error report to us, please agree as it will help us identify this issue and fix it in the next update.

Best regards,
