I am starting to use OneNote as Documentation-Platform
Is there a way to link tasks in ToDoIst to a sheet in OneNote?
Unfortunately, that's not possible, but we may consider adding such option in the future and you're welcome to request it in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/
It would be great integration. I take all of my meeting notes in OneNote and always wish that I could just delineate a task that would at least show up in the general inbox.
I would expect that we could pass it to outlook as a task, which could sync to oneNote.
I would expect that something similar should be able to be done directly.
Just a suggestion, as I believe that this is also a good idea, and I believe todoist may be able to send to outlook successfully and conversely.
I prefer Todoist to Outlook because of the cross-platform compatibility. However, one function that I really miss from Outlook is the ability to create a task in OneNote and link it to my central task list in Outlook.... I am often organizing my thoughts or projects in OneNote, so it's easier to initiate the tasks there, but OneNote isn't particularly good for tracking the tasks once they're set up, so I need Outlook (or Todoist) for that.
Basically, I'm looking for the ability to select some text, click a button, and have Todoist turn that text into a task (this is what the OneNote/Outlook integration does). To get fancy, you could maintain the link with that text so that you can put a check mark icon in front of it once that task is marked complete in Todoist... but the way I've been using this, that's pure window dressing and I don't have to have it.
If you want to do something that Outlook *can't* do, take a large section of selected text and turn each line into a separate task... so many clicks and keystrokes saved; my arthritic right hand would be *so* happy... it wouldn't even have to be OneNote-specific, you could just pull it out of the clipboard.
I have OneNote available to me at work, and the only thing that stops me from just ditching all my other productivity apps for it is the lack of effective task management. It's clunky to get a task from OneNote into Outlook (and only possible on a Windows machine, not mobile devices), and even clunkier to get it from there into any better-featured task manager. You would officially be my heroes if you could port the Outlook plugin and functionality into a OneNote plugin (if there even is such a thing).
Agreed with the above. I use Onenote extensively and would love integration with Todoist.
+1 for OneNote integration
I just started using Todoist and already miss the ability to link tasks with OneNote pages. The most basic thing the Todoist Outlook plugin could do to get around this is render the onenote:// URI correctly. I could live with right clicking a page in OneNote and selecting "Copy Link to Page," and then pasting that link into a Todoist task I create manually. As it is, the onenote:// part of the URI isn't interpreted correctly and Todoist opens the link in a browser. If you already use OneNote in the browser, this could work, but I much prefer the desktop client experience.
Obviously, full integration like suggested above would be even better :)
+1 for the onenote:// parsing issue.
I guess it would be enough to have a special character to enclosed a link in generell. As there are a few other custom links outside our little world. something like:
#onenote://<link whatever you like/?testdata# (LinkName)
check out Zapier
clunky but ...
when can you implement this? I believe this will be a good idea to get more people to support todoist.
1 for link page onenote !
+1. I spend a lot of time in OneNote and I've been doing the copy and paste, alt tab to Todoist shuffle.
I'm in love with ToDoIst and OneNote so if the two were married ... what a happy union that would be
You know what, Reiner?
You could download the Outlook app.
It would be very useful to link todoist to onenote
I would love to see Todoist and OneNote with some integration.
The best note app with the best task app? Terrific! Please, please, please.
+1 Would love Todoist + Onenote integration. http://dev.onenote.com/
+1 That's what stop me to go premium at the moment
There is some integration using Zapier or IFTTT (see https://ifttt.com/recipes/216243-new-onenote-page-for-specific-todoistask-todoistifttt for example) but they all seem to be pushing task/task updates from ToDoIst to OneNote. I'm most interested in OneNote content driving task creation and/or updates _to_ ToDoIst.
Just wondering why the evernote:// link is working and not the onenote://
+1 for me too :)
+1 I can easily share a OneNote notebook with my manager and he can easily see what i'm working on and all my notes on each task. but I love todoist for helping me manage my time and keep to task. I would love it if the two would be integrated so that I can create tasks in onenote that get sent to todoist.
OneNote integration would be terrific. We use OneNote extensively here - it is a great NoteTaking application for the Enterprise. I hate not being able to link my tasks back to my notes in OneNote.
We desperately need this. I write most of the notes or meeting details on OneNote. I would like to add a task right from OneNote to todoist.
+1 for the onenote:// link parsing. Should not be that hard, right?
I'd really like to see this as well. That clicking notes in Todoist would open the related Onenote.
Me 2.... it would really be great!
it would be great +1
Yes! OneNote integration would make Todoist complete in my book!
OH, and with OneNote integration, I'd propose Todoist to my employer :) (a 300,000+ employee global consulting company)
Wow. OK - seems like there is a lot of support for this features... Todoist support - has this made the integration list yet?
+1 OneNote is awesome.
Please Please please
this would be awesome- I used the capability to link text esp in meetings to send tasks in outlook - v powerful and would be v v valued in businesses I think
You got that right about enterprises, Mark! Come on,Todoist, that's where the $$$$ is :) OneNote integration or not, it's still the best task manager out there!
+1 would make Todoist unrivaled in productivity apps
+1 Onenote integration would be awesome
This would be an awesome update!
Add my vote to the pile.
Ok I added onenote: link support to my windows app:
further updates will be noted on github not the thread:) GL all.
how i install this ?
https://github.com/mitchcapper/wpfdoist/ at the bottom has the install instructions but in short download the latest exe from:
run it (it will install) and then find it in start menu under WPFDoist.
onenote links should just work in tasks then, file an issue on github if you find a format that doesn't.
I can't find it start menu ????
Try searching, or if your start menu shows companies it may be under "NA" or Mitch Capper.
I can't find this again some pictures or videos Wil be useful :-/
Spiros what operating system are you running? I assume you downloaded the exe and ran it, it extracted files to a path (c:\temp\WPFDoistSetup by default) and then it ran the setup. Once is was complete it should auto-launch I am guessing this worked just fine. If I understand your problem you are now saying you cannot figure out how to re-launch it?
My system is windows 8.1. I don't understand how i put a link to OneNote.?? Sorry for my English.
To put a link to onenote in Onenote right click on a page or section and select 'Copy link to page' then paste this link into a todoist task and hit enter. You will see it transform to a proper looking link with the name information and should work when you click it.
thank you so match (+1)
@Mitch - I appreciate the effort.. but I am a little leery logging into ToDoist via another application. Anyway to implement the linking without the login?
Kent the application is open source, so you can see the code. For what its worth the application is a wrapper around a browser control (so you aren't really giving your login to the application but rather the browser control). With that said if malicious it could certainly intercept the key strokes.
Unfortunately not everyone can read source code (or compile it to make sure the binary is the binary).
Good news is it is free, so if you don't use it I don't mind:)
It has been over a year with no response from support on whether this is being considered or not.
They also closed the Vote Booth.
I use OneNote to create and track all projects and currently use the ToDo hot key combination to create a check box in OneNote and it creates one in Outlook.
I have been trying to find an Android App that will sync with Outlook tasks and have a widget that will show tasks in order of priority and have the ability to check it as complete. Syncing with google does not work because Google Tasks do not have the ability to use priorities which is essential for my Task Management System.
Deja Office currently syncs my tasks to their android app, but I do not like the way it handles the contacts and it installs a bunch of other modules I do not want. I just want to be able to sync my tasks.
So I downloaded this today due to its outlook integration and was surprised that it does not use the tasks that are already created.
It would be great to have a plugin for OneNote that will create the ToDo in Todoist or at least have Todoist sync with outlook tasks.
How about at least an update if this is even being considered?
Only thing keeping me from purchasing and using the software.
Well, since the Vote Booth is closed I'll just add my +1 here. I don't know if the challenge is on Todoist's end or OneNote's. For the time being I'll have to make do with signing in to OneNote online to view task reference material.
OneNote link support is a todoist client limitation, (as my app above implements it without issue).
+1, would really like this. Since it's not possible with Zapier or IFTTT to send from OneNote-->Todoist, but there are actions that work vice versa, I'm suspecting that OneNote is the holdup. That said, it would be nice to get some guidance from Todoist. Clearly this is a high demand feature from this thread.
Onenote is not the hold up, my app (https://github.com/mitchcapper/wpfdoist/releases) directly supports onenote links and it uses a similar browser control to todoist win app.
Is there an update on this? Would love to have it.
I wouldn't hold your breath, especially with MS's recent purchase of Wunderlist.
But feel free to prove me wrong Todoist! ;)
I would suggest Todoist get moving quickly on this. Love the app but will move if this is not on the development path. Updates please?
Your welcome everyone. Now they have no choice but to implement this.
oops didn't mean to do 4 million, browser error
Can't ignore 4 million votes though
All that really needs to be done (in its most basic form) is to fix the link parser in the notes field to recognise URLs that begin, "onenote:".
Then we'd be able to paste the link to a OneNote page in as a note in a task and it'd work.
Right now I can do that, but to follow the link you have to edit the note, copy the full URL (including the initial 'onenote:') and paste it into a browser to launch the note.
Tedious, but it works. If Todoist could recognise it as a link automatically then it'd just be a click away!
I need it too.
