How do I get Todoist to pop up on my gmail when I log in or when I go on to chrome so i don't forget to check my tasks.
Please install our Gmail plugin from https://todoist.com/gmail and then you'll see the "Todoist" bar in the bottom-right corner in your Gmail :-)
Note - please make sure that the browser accepts third-party cookies or at least [*.]todoist.com is whitelisted.
Just a note, there is no pop-up notifications. That's a long requested feature, but I've yet to see pop-up notifications in Chrome.
Also, you can use the Chome extension that also allows you to add email as task, and it more flexible (you can add website as task and you can see how many tasks are due). Far more recommended than the gmail extension if you use Chrome.

Here is a great workaround for chrome pop up notifications that I just found out!
