Hello Yann,

Unfortunately, we don't have any dedicated Safari plugins right now, but you can use Todoist Anywhere with Safari: http://todoist.com/anywhere - it will allow you to bookmark a shortcut that will open up a Todoist window.

Best regards,

Is there still a safari plugin? Looking to capture webpages similar to the way it works in Chrome, thanks.

Hello Yaphet,

Unfortunately not, but we may consider developing one in the future.

This would be of great interest to mark a page as something todo!

More specifically I am looking for a safari plugin that will grab the URL of the page and create a todo with it. The URL can be the task name or ideally the task note. The name would be the name of the web page.

Definitely -- too much emphasis on Google and Chrome at Todoist. Please do a Safari extension.

Safari usage share continues to grow, slowly but steadily.

I use Todoist several times a day and I use Safari all the time. I'm with the others here; a Safari extension would be most welcome. For me it's the one piece missing that would make Todoist complete if available.

I'm considering the switch from Chrome to Safari (better performance) on my MacbookPro but alas no Todoist plugin to be found. Please implement this. :)

Hi Rob,

We're all asking Todoist to create one - it doesn't exist yet. So no place to download it. But please feel free to add your voice to the request stream. I'm sure Todoist is like any other development organization - finite resources which have to be directed to the areas of greatest demand. Safari browser share has been growing but hasn't been the top priority for Todoist so far.

Replied on Oct 09, 2014 - 15:58 UTC

I'm asking bc Eddy Yansen inferred that it was now available.

A great deal of people are switching back I have the impression, as the new Safari is very well developed and fast.

Although there is still no Safari extension for Todoist, when Safari is running under Yosemite one of the Share options is Todoist. "Share" is very easy and quick to use. If you have upgraded to Yosemite, check out the Todoist function under the Share option (top right of the Safari menu bar).

Lee Herman  premium
Replied on Oct 27, 2014 - 15:02 UTC

Very cool! Thanks, Michael. If the option to Add to Todoist doesn't appear on your Share popup menu, click on the More item and it will open system preferences for Plugins and you can enable the Add to Todoist item. Then go back to Safari and it should appear in the Share popup menu. :-)

Michael Flower  premium
Replied on Oct 27, 2014 - 15:12 UTC

Oh yeah, I should have mentioned the enabling step. Also, you can drag and drop to change the order of the Share items. I moved Todoist to the top. Did I miss anything else, Lee?

Lee Herman  premium

Michel, that's all of it. Didn't even need to restart Safari.

Michael Flower  premium
Replied on Oct 27, 2014 - 15:21 UTC

It looks like I fibbed a little. Apple's own "Add to Reading List" and "Add Bookmark" occupy by default the top two places. But Todoist is third. Now, unless Lee found a way to get around the default order, "that's all of it" (to quote him). In my view this route (via Share) is just as handy as a Safari extension would have been.

Lee Herman  premium
Replied on Oct 27, 2014 - 15:28 UTC

:-D There's always more! The drag and drop in System Preferences gets it to the top there, but Safari seems to put the items Michael mentions above whatever is ordered in System Preferences. I don't see anything in Safari preferences to control that. I think the plugin is still needed since that allows working on Todoist things without leaving Safari (handy when Safari is filling the screen and only one monitor is available - I'm spoiled to two monitors on my work machines).

Ok, I missed something... Now in Safari we can share site with Todoist (image attached)

Replied on Nov 06, 2014 - 02:03 UTC

+1 this is a feature I really want. Chrome and Firefox are resource (and subsequently battery) hogs in OS X, I would like to be able to add tasks as a contextual menu and from gmail also.

Come on todoist, you can do it!

How come a Safari Extension has not been made available yet?

It seems contradictory to your marketing claims regarding integrating with various platforms.

I bought into your integration approach. It is on point and makes your program very useful but please ... follow though. Do yourselves a favor!

In this vein, I also would like to see an integration/app for Mac Mail.

You have a great program. PLEASE do not shoot yourselves in the foot.



Balazs Nadasdi  premium

Steven: If you install the OS X application the you can easily add task with OS X's built-in share function. Like from Safari: Click on the small share (paper plane) icon and select Todoist. Done.

I don't use Apple mail because it's slow and ugly but this share option words very well with a lot of applications. I use Airmail (beta) and it has an own plugin for that.

For Apple Mail I suggest you this thread: https://todoist.com/Support/show/24431/

Hello and Thank you Balazs,

Your response to my posting is on point.

How can I get a beta of AirMail ?

Any other mail apps you would suggest?

I REALLY REALLY REALLY need a To Do program that I will stay with.

In years gone by I have tried dozens and they just don’t capture my attention. Never get to the point of counting on them.

ToDoist for several reasons is the best of class for me.

I am in a mode right now where I want to push through with ToDoist and integrate it to/in all my virtual accesses.

So, in addition to any mail app suggestions, any other suggestions are welcome.

Have a Great Day.

Hello Steven,

I tried a few email client but most of them was a failure for me. For me it's important that use Google's OAuth for login, be quick, low memory consumption and of course easy to use.

I stayed with AirMail Beta. You can get it from here: https://rink.hockeyapp.net/apps/84be85c3331ee1d222fd7f0b59e41b04#_=_

Todoist plugin is available here: http://support.airmailapp.com/post/105343062118/todoist-plugin

I hope I could help a little :)

Balazs Nadasdi  premium
Replied on Jun 21, 2015 - 16:30 UTC

btw my very well working solution is:

1. Online gmail + Chrome extension (add link that points to the email)
2. Any other email client with IFTTT (when I star an email then IFTTT adds it to my Todo list)

I use Android (phone) and there is not working the AirMail link :( (logically)

But this is a little bit off-topic here (under Safari Plugin conversion).

You can also highlight a piece of text within the safari webpage and ctrl-click (or click with two fingers on trackpad) to bring up a menu, then select services, add to todoist. Actually really smooth, although my description of it sounds a bit cumbersome.

We definitely need a Safari Gmail plugin (like what's available on Chrome), especially so that it can get integrated into Mailplane.

I agree with Jason, I have to switch to Opera and use the Chrome-compatible plugin to turn emails into to-do's and that sucks.

Please build a Safari Gmail plugin. It is badly wanted by your users.
