Google Calendar Events ==> Todoist?


I was able to easily import/sync my Todoist (1 way) tasks to Google Calendar... nice, but having 100 tasks each day cluttering the calendar view doesn't help me.

I like to look at my calendar and see appointments and hard blocked out times.

It would be most helpful to import Google Calendar appointments into Todoist and shift more of my 'checking' time to Todoist instead of bouncing back and for the between the apps.

Is there a way to Import/sync google events?

thank you

Hi Stephen,

I faced the same important issue with you in the past - GCal got too cluttered with Todoist tasks.

So I'm using the following automation:

For Google Cal appointments that I want to view in Todoist (in my case, logged under the calendar "Events"), I have created a Zapier alert to create a new Todoist entry under the project "events".

I'm passing to the new task all the important bits, and set a custom reminder at the time of the event).

However the time of the event is not being parsed yet correctly: day is picked up ok, but time is not.

Todoist developers are looking into it: https://todoist.com/Support/show/30883/

Hope that helps!

Looks interesting. I'll give it a shot once they get it fixed. Thanks!
