Is there a way to import from Remember the Milk? Couldn't find anything in the support Q&A. thanks!
At the moment it's not possible to import from Remember The Milk, they only export to iCal feeds.
You can vote on that feature if you'd like in our votebox : http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/30/
that is not good....
i think u loose lots of users from others apps.
yes, thi is a must have feature. Also, we cannot see how it could work importing from a text file, as this it is not a feature of the free app. Which has no sense, as that is the first thing you do to try the free app, and decide if you want to change to Todoist, and maybe buy the premium subscription...
I got many task at RTM. I won't use your app until the import option be possible
Will start using Todoist as a premium subscriber when import functionality from RTM is added. Entering the tasks again manually is not an option, when you, like me, have 100's of entries. Too bad, because I like the clean layout of your program.
Agree with rtn and the other statements above. I'm not going to re-enter tasks to move services.
I do agree with the above speakers. I have been very satisfied with Omnifocus, when I only were using iphone. Today I use a mix of Samsung Notes 3, PC, iPad and Samsung Tab 10.1 and the web.
For me the most important thing is that my todolists are platform independent. And of course if I decide to change service for my todo list, I should be easy to migrate to a new service.
I should add that I am trying "Remember the Milk" right now, since they have one killer feature, that is, to connected evernote reminders to their service. Such a wonderful feature
Another RTM user here who would consider making the switch, but not without some way to import current and historical RTM tasks into Todoist.
++1 I want to use your service as a Premium subscriber, but without an import feature, it's a no go for me.
Cast my vote for this being a big impediment for moving from RTM.
+1, must have!
add my vote to the list - I am a premium user but will likely not renew
I had great success using Todoport (https://todoport.com/index.html) to migrate my tasks from Toodledo to Todoist earlier this week.
I believe you can import RTM tasks into Toodledo so that might be worth looking at.
Thanks Kevin, I'm on the beta version and I don't see anything like what
you helpfully suggest.
One point - is this referring to the calendar though? Or the calendar
tasks? Not quite clear from the description.
I was referring to being able to import tasks.
I'm not familiar with the details of RTM. Is there a calendar option you're referring to Martin. I might be missing something...always possible.
well the tasks can appear in a Google calendar - something I don't use. Anyway doesn't seem to correlate to the beta I'm working with. Thanks Kevin.
I'd like to leave RTM, but won't without import/export ability.
You might want to look at the Todoport link that I shared above. You may be able to export your RTM tasks to a Toodledo account and then import from there to Todoist.
It doesn't show RTM?
No, Todoport doesn't import directly from RTM. However, Todoport does import from Toodledo (that's what I was using before Todoist) and I believe you can sync your RTM tasks with Toodledo. If you do that then you'd have a way to get your tasks into Todoist.
We're looking at direct RTM support in Todoport, but are awaiting clarification on their 'commercial API' criteria before going ahead.
It's not obvious that Todoport in its current form constitutes commercial use, but we want to be sure before spending time and effort on that port.
I see Kevin however, using the beta version of RTM I can't see any sync as you mention.
Ahhh...I wasn't aware of the new beta version of RTM.
I was invited ...
I was an ex-RTM I simply imported the RTM tasks by doing the following simple steps:
Go to RTM All Tasks, Simple select all tasks and paste it in Notepad.
You will get all the tasks with spaces and target dates ex. Jan 28
Now you will need to find and replace a few times to convert Jan 28 to 1/28, Feb 28 to 2/28
Once done, try to import the tasks in Todoist (I guess its premium feature).
You may have to reset the re-occurance of the tasks because that can't be imported with the above work around.
The above steps worked for me and I am fully migrated now.
Hope it helps.
Anyone who has too many tasks to import from RTM doesn't really know how to use a Task Manager.
Obviously, you are more well informed than the rest of us . . . please share your wealth of knowledge and instruct us on how to really use a task manager.

Alan carps on methinks.
I'm afraid I don't even get his slight, or should I say, point. Maintaining one's tasks isn't like, for instance, email where a small inbox, e.g. Inbox0, is desirable however, even if one reaches that enviable state, there are many other emails in other places - labels, folders, other apps and so on. But I digress.
As a task management example I have an RTM list for an extensive 6 week trip to S. America. Right now it contains 26 tasks and I struggle to see this as a failing.
Also in Alan's vagueness does he include completed tasks?
Anyway more important stuff to do - my breakfast.
