Integration with ifttt.com


I would love to see Todoist added as a channel to ifttt.com (http://ifttt.com/channels), an event management system that I find very useful. It's possible that all the work to make that happens must happen on their side, but I thought I'd mention it here in case it helps.

I would have to agree, I see real potential with this idea!

i think that this would be great. I just also want to throw out there that the combination of the email or Gmail channels and the ability to email tasks to a project in Todoist makes for a make-do integration. For example, I have it setup so I can use the texting trigger and text with the hashtag '#todo' and it will email whatever the rest of the body is to Todoist as a task.

The possibilities of this added feature would be up to the imagination of the users of ifttt. Ex:
- If you add an article to be read, IFTTT can add a TODO item
- A craigslist posting matching a certain criteria...IFTTT can add a TODO
- etc.

HELLOOOOO???.... Has anybody from Todoist seen or actioned this?

It looks from the link the Justin Maxwell posted as if ifttt.com do all the work, but a request has to come in from Todoist along with various bits of technical info.

I love Todoist and am in my second year of paid premium membership but I am becoming gradually more frsutrated at the time it takes to fix problems and at the lack of response to Votebox suggestions, etc...

I note that along with Evernote and Dropbox (the other two solutions I use on a daily basis to help organise my life), Toodledo already offers ifttt integration; perhaps I should jump ship from Todoist and give them a go...

Hello Patrick,

As I've mentioned in another thread - we read every single response and suggestion. We directly reply to every question in the Support forum, but not in the Votebox as we can never directly confirm or deny if a feature will be added. We're working on so many things right now and need to plan the order of added features to make it efficient.

We're sorry to hear that you've got the impression that we're not adding new features, please check our social media channels and our blog to see how much was added in the past and by the end of the month, we'll publish another huge update across all platforms.

Best regards,

Thanks for taking the time to reply David. Clearly you do read and reply to everything, but replying to issues isn't the same as addressing them, and I do have a number outstanding. I await your big update with baited breath...
In the meantime, I ditched my Toodledo account the day I signed up for Todoist but I've just had a quick look at them and they seem to have added a lot of the functionality which drew me from them to you in the time I've been gone. I don't want to leave Todoist, especially as I've just recently renewed my annual subscription, but I think maybe I will run both in tandem for a while to see how they compare (for my needs) in the real day-to-day use.

+1 to IFTTT integration.

@Patrick, I was a LONG, LONG-time Toodledo user before ditching it in favor of Astrid. I just took a quick look at Toodledo's website, and at least the looks of it haven't changed much. Toodledo's customization is extremely powerful, but I can't bring myself to go back to its desktop-oriented funky and archaic interface. I hope Todoist will keep its modern interface and just adopt Toodledo's powerful customization and third-party integration, including IFTTT. Just my two cents.

@W - Thanks for your two cents. At the risk of asking a stupid question I take it that you subsequently ditched Astrid in favour of Todoist? I'm currently re-trialing Toodledo in tandem with Todoist, so running two mirrored to-do lists (which is a bit of a pain, but probably worth it in order to make the right long term decision); should I be taking a look at Astrid as well? I've vaguely heard of it but never really investigated.

Replied on Jan 10, 2014 - 07:53

@Patrick, unfortunately Astrid is out of service. Yahoo acquired it and killed it. While it was in service, it was beloved by its users, and I think Todoist absorbed a lot of former Astrid users, including myself.

When Astrid was closed, I had to look for an alternative, but I couldn't bring myself to try Toodledo again, although I had been its user for such a long time. I was spoiled by Astrid. Everyone's preference is different, but I think Todoist was the closest alternative that I could find on the market to Astrid. It's your call after all, but one thing certain is that Todoist is improving. There has been many improvements in many areas of Todoist the past several months I've been using it. If the developers keep Todoist on that improvement curve, we can only expect better things. In that respect, Astrid was similar too. It was constantly improving. Not sure about Toodledo. Never got the impression that they were constantly innovating. But I haven't been to Toodledo for a while, so things may have changed there too.

No doubt about it. Go IFTTT.

You can already use IFTTT using the email feature for each project.

This could wrap up the Evernote integration as well. Lovely stuff

@Thibaut, Can you elaborate? How is that possible?

Thibaut premium
Replied on Mar 02, 2014 - 03:10

@w You can send mail to a project using the email premium feature. SO for example you can check a rss feed and if a criteria is match you send a mail directly to the project via IFTTT.

Replied on Mar 02, 2014 - 12:34

@Thibaut, I see. Yes, that will work. But I was looking for IFTTT integration that will put Todoist on the triggering end, not the receiving end. I thought that would open up a whole lot of interesting options.

Thibaut premium
Replied on Mar 03, 2014 - 02:08

Oh, understood. For me, it makes more sense to a to do app on the receiving side. I did not really thought about what you can do on the triggering side.

Replied on Mar 03, 2014 - 10:57

@Thibaut, I'm just thinking out loud here since nobody knows how Todoist will be integrated into IFTTT, but quite a lot can be done, I think.

For example, when there is a task that is due and it has @wife tag, I can make IFTTT send her a SMS text, give her a call or even make a ThingM light in the kitchen blink. Is this micromanagement? :-)

Thibaut premium

Interesting perspective, I guess it can enable a lot of possibility indeed. Let's hope for your wife that it will never been implemented :)
