Outlook minimize size


Just getting familiar with Todoist after looking at dozens of other systems - looks like it's going to be the winner! Yay!

1) Overall Outlook works fine... but, When Todoist is minimized, it still consumes a full 1" of vertical space on my monitor or about 10% of the entire Outlook - just eating up empty space! Even if eating the entire vertical column, it seems it would be easy enough to resize it to about 1/8" or maybe 2% of the horizontal space... it's just a couple of << arrows in the middle of a wide open field.

Is there a way to do this?

2) when Td is expanded, it would be wonderful if there could be an option to expand the width of outlook itself... in my setup, Outlook takes up about 50% of the screen on the RHS and leaves an area on the left to have a few other windows open and pull forward as needed. When clicking to open TD it messes up the display of the email folder view structure, so I have to resize the window manually each time i use it... or, have Outlook always eat 80% of my screen when it only needs 50% most of the time.

Thanks for any guidance on how to possibly achieve these actions.

Hi Stephen,

At this time, neither of these can be changed. Though we will consider adding more options to do so in future updates. You can of course, change the size of Todoist window when it is open, but only to a certain point.

Agree with Stephen - this is a bit silly.

Agree with Stephen - this is a bit silly. Is there a way to hide the sidebar and just keep the "Add Todoist" button??
