Outlook integration

I have set up my Todoist account with my gmail address. When/If I go premium :
My Outlook... is an Exchange Hosted Account. with a different email than the GMail account. Will I be able to sync tasks if the emails are different? How does the Outlook sync handle multiple Outlook profiles?

thanks in advance,

Hello Dana,

The email address you use to log into Todoist has nothing to do with the one or multiple ones you use in Outlook, it's just used for authorization so you can log into the same account on all platforms.

The way the Outlook plugin adds tasks (which you can try out already as it's a free feature) is that it uses a link to a unique ID of an element (email) in your inbox. That said - since each message is unique, it doesn't matter in what inbox it is and how many inboxes you have and with what email addresses.

Please note that there is also another way of adding emails as tasks - instead of linking to them , you can also forward/send them to your Todoist projects. This is a Premium feature and you're welcome to check this post on our blog explaining both options in detail: https://todoist.com/blog/2013/01/zero-inbox-policy-with-todoist/

Best regards,
