todoist icon showing twice in dock


hi i've made todoist open up when i login and to keep it in the dock at the same time. so when i log in, i see 2 todoist icons, 1 while open while the other one says it's busy. so i end up force quitting todoist to get rid of the 2nd icon. why does this keep happening?

Hi Kristen,

Uncheck all settings (when you CMD or Right click the icon). Then remove it from Dock and make sure it's closed (not running). From the Applications folder (where Todoist should be) you can either run it from there or drag it to the dock, I normally create a copy of it and then drag it to the dock. Though adding it to the Dock is not needed.

Open Todoist by clicking the icon, in the top right corner beside the clock, click the TD icon, Mac App Prefernces. From there make sure the Show Todoist In Dock is selected.

Now right click on the Dock Icon, and go to "Open At Login" and only that one.

Now there should only ever be one in the Dock.
