outlook addin slows down outlook considerably

I installed the outlook addin. While it works, it slows down outlook significantly. It takes much longer to come up, and opening a folder populates much more slowling. When I uninstall, outlook returns to normal.

Hi Marvin,

Which version of Outlook & Windows are you running? Do you have any other extensions installed, and if you disable those but keep Todoist, does it still occur?

I am using outlook 10 and IE 10.
I have evernote 5 and a sperry 5 plugin for outlook.
I have uninstalled todolist as it was too intrusive.

Ummm - This add in is horrible. Tanked my outlook performance. Outlook now takes forever to load while ToDoist seems to be looking for tasks.

Hi Bridgett,

Sorry to hear that. Would you try our beta version of the upcoming update for the Outlook plugin to see if the issue persists there? If so, please uninstall your current version and then install our beta from here:
