Link to Microsoft OneNote

Good Morning.

I am starting to use OneNote as Documentation-Platform
Is there a way to link tasks in ToDoIst to a sheet in OneNote?

regards
Reiner

Hello Reiner,

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/


Best regards,

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).

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)

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.

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.

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?

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.

M
Mitch
Replied on Mar 03, 2015 - 01:34 UTC

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:)

Also the onenote code is done through javascript injection, you could probably write a FF extension or manually inject the code through a bookmarklet. I am not going to spend the time to figure it out but someone can look at the repos code to see how to do so.

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.
