Why can't I attach files to notes on Windows 8 app?


I'm trying to attach files to notes using the Windows 8 app but I can't do it.

When I click "Attach files" it brings up a box to "Choose file" with the text "No file chosen" beside the button. I click the "Choose file" button and the text beside it disappears but I'm not given any option to browse my computer for the file I want to attach.

I can attach files just fine if I go online.

Is this a glitch in the app or is there something I'm doing wrong?

Hello Walker,

Please try this updated version of our app and let me know if the issue persists: https://d2dq6e731uoz0t.cloudfront.net/0837981a81ddbe8700d49f248666cab7/as/Todoist_for_Windows.RC.exe

Best regards,

Perfect! Problem solved.

That raises another question though. I installed the Todoist app on my laptop less than 2 weeks ago. I never received a notification about updating and I did look to see if there was an update for the app prior to posting my question. However, I was unable to find any options for updating.

In the future, will I be notified of update releases or is there some way I can check to see if my app needs to be updated?

Thanks again!

When we update the app, it will ask you to perform an update. The reason you haven't seen such notification is because we haven't updated it yet. The file I've sent you is a pre-release version which will be published very soon. It features some bug fixes incl. the one you've mentioned.

Best regards,

I see.

Well, it works, so thank you very much!

How about a Windows 8 app that's available from the Windows store and will run on Windows RT, that poor orphan of the family?

Hi William,

We do not have any for sure plans for Windows 8, but it is a strong possibility it will happen in the near future.
