Hello Jaime,

Unfortunately, that's not possible. You can only install the Todoist plugin and add tasks from emails in Outlook or add the Todoist iCal feed (with Premium) to Outlook's Calendar, but it's not possible to import Outlook's tasks into Todoist.

Best regards,

That's a shame is I would love that feature and pay you guys instantly if it did it. With a few tasks it's not so bad - i have staff with over 3000 so manually moving them over would be a nightmare for them.

For me, lack of this feature is a show stopper, sorry...

Bummer. I switch to todoist in a minute if I could import/export from outlook tasks to todoist.

Agreed. Show stopper.

I also agree, needs an import from Outlook option to make viable.

Absolutely a MUST! How do you dare to talk about "seamless Outlook integration" when there is no possibility to sync with outlook tasks???

For me too, i switch as soon as I could import/export to outlook

I agree! I completely thought this program would pull my existing tasks from Outlook and so spent my valuable time installing and troubleshooting ToDoist (I have a newborn so I only have limited time to do other stuff right now) only to discover it doesn't do the one thing I really needed it to do. It would be great you made it clear that it doesn't sync existing tasks on the page where you tout all it can do and how it integrates.

Same here, if I could import from outlook and continue on I would buy pemium and switch to todoist immediately.
