Hi Joe,

We always try to make our app as intuitive as possible, but unfortunately we don't have a single user's manual for Todoist at this time.

You can print all our help pages:
which explains the main features of our app.

If you experience any issues with our software or require help with certain features, you're welcome to contact us and we'll gladly assist you anytime, like you did just now.

What might be your exact problem your have with getting our software to work with Outlook? Have you installed our Outlook Plugin?

Hello Joe,

There are two ways of adding emails as tasks:

1. Linking to them using the plugin - in which case you must use the "Add email as task" link in the "Quick Add" menu or at the bottom of the task list while you're within a project, but this will make the link only accessible through the Outlook plugin.

2. Sending/forwarding mails to Todoist (Premium-only feature) - for that, you don't need the plugin, but this will not link the task to this message, but it will convert the entire body of the email to a task note.

Both options were described in detail on our blog: http://todoist.com/blog/2013/01/zero-inbox-policy-with-todoist/

Best regards,
