How can you sync TODOIST with outlook calendar without the addin


Add for TODOIST causes lag in outlook and make it really slow. I think lot of work is required towards this end.

Anyways how can I sync todoist with outlook tasks or calendar. if not then can I do this with GMAIL.

Hi Umesh,

There is an iCal feed URL within the settings page of Todoist. Click on the gear icon in the top right, then Todoist Settings. At the bottom of that pop-up there is a URL, this is what you need to copy and paste into the calendar.

Thanks Brendon. The ical is a manual process. Is there a way to sync it automatically on regular basis.

It is not a manual process, but it does only update once a day. There are no current other ways of doing this.

I can see my Todoist tasks in a calendar beside my main outlook calendar within MS Outlook. As you saay syncing is once a day but at what time does this happen?

Are there plans to make this more frequent? Can you set the time for this?

The ability to assign tasks to certain times of day in Outlook and to see them in the right time slot when you have created the task or soon thereafter facilitates the planing process. Are there plans for this?

Hi Vincent,

For Outlook Calendar, you can press the Send/Receive All Folders at the top right to update your iCal feed. The once a day limitation is actually for Google Calendar.
