Issues with Todoist Outlook Addin


I am running on Windows 7 64 with Outlook Home and Business 2010 and have noticed the following bugs so far:

(1) Top of the add-in screen is conceiled by the Todoist header bar (i.e. can't read the current day header)
(2) Wrapping of the text is too wide, so when you link to an email or a long task, the Due Date box disappear right off to the right of the screen meaning you have to scroll way to the right to set the date and then back left to confirm.
(3) When setting the date of a task using the due date box, hovering the mouse over dates no longer provides a bar of varying length indicating how many tasks are due that day, it is only available as text (this may be a purpose feature adjustment).

I am using Outlook 2010 with Windows 7 (64)

In my case after closing and re-opening Outlook the add-in space goes blank, I have to log-out and log in again for the data to reappear. However, if I close the Outlook and re-open it the add in is blank again.

Thank you for your reports, we're sorry for the inconvenience, we'll address these issues very soon in the next update.

You should still see the bar with the color of the projects in which tasks are scheduled for this day. Please make sure that you have the latest version of Internet Explorer installed on your computer as our plugin uses IE to connect and the display of it is influenced by IE.

Best regards,

Hi John,

Please make sure Internet Explorer is updated to the latest version. That would be IE10 for Windows 7. Please also clear the cache of IE and Logout of the plugin and re-login after clearing the cache.

If that does not work, please try un-installing the plugin and re-install it.

All my issues listed originally appear to be fixed now this morning, thanks for your prompt action.

To the staff of Todoist, I commend you on such a fantastic application. I had been looking for a multi-platform task manager like this for many years with the right blend of features and simplicity. I have recommended to my staff to start trialling/using it now as well to manage their tasks workload.
