Syncing Todoist with Outlook 2013 Tasks and/or Calendar


I am aware that there is an Outlook plugin (which is brilliant). However, what I am seeking is full syncing with Outlook 2013 tasks and calendar.

I understand that the premium version has: "Access tasks via iCalendar. Export your tasks and see them in your favorite calendar app."

Would the premium version show tasks I enter into Todoist into Outlook calendar and/or tasks?

Thank you.

Hello Mo,

Unfortunately, Todoist currently doesn't support any integration with Outlook Tasks. You could use our plugin as an easy alternative to Outlook's Tasks, but you can't import Outlook's Tasks into Todoist.

We may consider adding such option (if possible) in the future and you're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/194/

Best regards,

Thank you for the incredibly fast response.

I've been chewing over a workaround:

RE: "Access tasks via iCalendar. Export your tasks and see them in your favorite calendar app."

Is that automatic, on a regular basis?

Could I sync Todoist to an app (e.g. Google Calendar or a Toodledo app.) on my mobile phone? They are already syncing with my Outlook (via Gsyncit), so that way it would go from Todosist -> Mobile -> Outlook 2013?

With syncing the iCal feed to Google Calendar, due to Google this only syncs once a day, so it is automatic, just not all the time.

Once you do this, if the Google Calendar app is syncing with your Outlook then this should sync Todoist as well. But as you can see, with the once a day issue, it's a bit limited.

We hope we can improve this in the future, we are planning our own calendar module.

+1 on this topic and it's too bad Todoist "closed down" voting. I would also like to see integration with Outlook tasks! The ideas presented here do not resolve the issue. Could someone describe how to successfully import from Outlook --> Todoist?
