Terminal server


Todoist really is a great tool, so I also want to test/use it at work and install the MS Outlook app. However, since we work exclusively in a terminal server environment, I fear that Todoist will be automatically installed for all users. I would like to avoid that, since I want to test it first (with outlook app). Is it possible to avoid an installation for all users or, if not, to switch off Todoist for some users? I have full administrator rights, so there is no security issue.

Hello Wouter,

To be honest, we're unsure if that would work in this case. Technically, if you don't select "Install for all accounts" during the installation, it should install just for you.

Feel free to try it out and see if it works, in worst case you can always easily uninstall it as any other app (it's listed as OutlookTodoist in Programs & Features) and if you log into your Todoist account, other users should not see your data anyway.

Best regards,

Dear David,

Thank you for your swift reply. Indeed, I tried it out and it worked. Even though I did not get the possibility to deselect "install for all accounts," my installation of Todoist is only visible for me. So you can add that Todoist also works perfectly well, using outlook installed on a Terminal Server :-)

Best regards,
