plugin for Mac



I've just started to use your MacOS app, I find it awesome and I'm about to start to use it with my start-up marketing agency but it would made my life much easier if you had an apple mail plugin. Are you planning to develop it or not. If yes, can you please tell me when is it going to happen?

Hi Ruisz,

I can't say if and when this will happen but we do want to support every one as much as possible. It's quite possible it will happen at some point.

Testing the Business version and agree with Ruisz, it would be great to have an Apple Mail plugin! Just one more vote J

I'm still on trial and this is a showstopper for me becoming a paying customer

This is a BIG show stopper for me. I forward emails to Evernote in Mac OS Mail and it works great. But as great as Evernote is, it is not a task manager. Todoist is. I'm still in my 30 day period after paying for Todoist Premium and if this can't be resolved, I can't remain a user. Is it an Apple problem in not allowing it?

Hi Ken,

You can actually forward emails to projects in your Todoist account. The thread is actually for a plug-in for the Apple Mail app to create tasks directly within it.

You can refer this link for more info on how to set it up: http://todoist.com/Help/viewEmailTasks?from_premium=1

Appreciate you bringing this up.

This is not an option for everyone -- I cannot forward work emails outside of the company as a matter of policy over which I have no control.

I also note that this is a nice solution for mobile (I'm in the same situation with mobile), it is no where near the nice binding that comes with an email plugin.

Will there ever be one? Or do those of us in my situation need to abandon to something else that supports Apple Mail?

Hello Michael,

Unfortunately, we can't say yes or no as we never know for sure if a certain feature or plugin will be developed in the future. We're not working on it right now, but we may in the future. We're considering making the Mac app itself be "aware" of an opened email and let it add it as task.

I FINALLY got this to work. Multiple attempts with multiple email clients on multiple platforms. The email address I copied into my Contact List kept changing for unknown reasons. I soon had 3, none of which worked, either abandoned initially and wouldn't even send, or would send and result in a bounced back error message which started this whole exercise.

What made it work was re-reading the link the email provided for the 6th time but this time reading each section rather than skipping over how to embed due dates, reminders, etc., which, in my opinion, is a cool feature but unduly complicated and difficult to remember, and reading the very last item on the page which I had previously determined to be irrelevant in my circumstances. It was not.

The last item mentions that Todoist will only accept emails sent to it from identified email addresses. Probably an extra bit of security of questionable value. I had signed up for Todoist in one email account and subsequently changed to another. I add the new email address to the "authorized sender list", and,Viola, it worked!

Just a suggestion, you might want to make this item #2 right beneath the email address item on your help section. Would have saved me a lot of time and frustration. And...I am sure I personally am far more detailed and thorough than your average customer. Going through what I did would have left an average customer simply giving up in frustration. I now can use this great feature to push all tasks into my task manager, Todoist, and not let my email determine my priorities.

Thanks.....I am now happy!

I'm voting for an Apple Mail plugin. I have the Evernote mail plugin by Chungwasoft and having a Todoist mail plugin would be great. Also, I've found the perfect solution on iOS with the CloudMagic web app which supports Todoist and Evernote.

I would definitely agree; an Apple Todoist plug-in would be wonderful!
