Hello Nicolas,

Unfortunately, that's not possible right now, however you can add Evernote links to your Todoist tasks.

Best regards,

I´m missing Evernote-integration, too!! I think Todoist will get a lot more customers with such an integration.

On Android I can send an Evernote note to Todoist with the standard send dialog. Then you get a task with a link to the web version of this note. This is better then nothing...

Thank you for your answers!
But it is true that real evernote integration Todoist bring a huge advantage.

Adding to this...

Would it be possible to display Evernote links in a more "friendly" way?

For example, Omnifocus displays Evernote links like this (with the actual title of the note as it was created in Evernote):

Monthly reporting for IT Ops - newer version for AMS Director

Whereas, Todoist displays the same EN link like this:


(snipped the URL)

Can anything be done about this? The integration of Todoist with Evernote would be much improved with this simple change. Thanks!

Just adding my vote. The bottom line is that Evernote does not have an effective way to provide a unified display task items and their notes, hidden across multiple notebooks. If this integration was possible, I would be using the PAID version of ToDoist instead.
- Note Titles = Evernote Notebooks
- Use a ToDoist tag or bookstack in Evernote
- Sync changes to titles and notes
- Sync changes to reminders

P.S. Check out Gneo in iOS for an example of integration that works, whether or not you like the implementation...

I'm all for Evernote integration, but I think one challenge for any app developer is that "integration" means different things to different people. I read about RTM's Evernote integration, and it just syncs with Evernote and lets you link to notes, which is not what I'm looking for. What I want is to be able to see my Evernotes in Todoist somehow and click a button to either create a task or add them to a task.

Azendoo does this very well, but you have to pay for the mobile app, while Todoist lets you have everything on every platform for free. I really tried to convince myself to use Azendoo just because its Evernote integration was just what I was looking for... but in the end I'd rather use Todoist on all those platforms, and just go to Evernote, copy the link (or the content of the list, or whatever) and paste it into Todoist. It's a couple of steps more than it would be with Azendoo, but worth the extra work to me.

JK, I agree; I think we all mean something slightly different when we use the word 'integration'. I think the notes function in Todoist is fine while a task is in progress. I would, however, like to be able to archive complete tasks to Evernote. If there were a way to send (or even generically email, or even just have a 'printer friendly version' so I could print to PDF) a task summary, including title, date due, date completed, all notes, and all attachments (including plain text of any linked emails), to Evernote, I would be satisfied.

I use the Todoist button in the gmail extension to add task from gmail to Todoist, it's a great tool. All it does is add a link back to the email, and if you archive all your emails, that Todo can be active for along time. Is there a problem with having the same feature in Evernote?
