Very handy. I hadn't known about the GMail extension, but it will help a lot.

Steve-I am not a techie but found this TODOIST through a techie friend and started yesterday, Your explanation was simple and so easy to follow thank you.-Jerry
Shane Baker (5 months ago)
I am not happy with this app. The app does not allow me to schedule an email to a todo from the inbox as I was led to believe. It does not have the todoist icon button to schedule an email to become an item to do. It seems this is because my google account is a google apps account. Because of this It is very limited and effectively fairly useless . I ldo ike Steve Dotto helps however I would have liked to be cautioned on this major limitation when the app is integrated with a google apps email email account. Thumbs down on this one Steve, otherwise you have been a great help. Back to Toodledo

1. You though it was going to be a tutorial on ToDoIst, But it is a 4, nearly 5 year old video, If you are looking for tutorials I would look to something newer. 2. I do ask for interaction, but constructive criticism and outright insults are 2 different things. This was an early video in our channel, we have evolved a lot, based on constructive feedback from the community. Your comment was offensive and glib. Suggest that I title my videos more accurately, ask a question about a product, be respectful, don't just snipe from the sidelines. We have a great community here, you are welcome to be a part of it and take and give value, just do so respectfully.
Jerome OConnor (5 months ago)
I thought the video was going to be a tutorial on Todosist. What it is is a stream-of-consciousness description of how much you like using Todoist with your gmail account. It is more a sales pitch than anything else. Then at the end you beg for a subscription and say..."if you found this video "incredibly valuable"...would it kill you to give us a like." Are you really proud of this crap. What annoys me most is that no matter how bad a video is, it always has many more time the "likes" than "dislikes." This only results in the bad driving out the good. If people were a little more judicious and discriminating, the average quality of videos would go up...benefitting everyone. Keep in mind: You opened you video to comments, so you have to expect that some people will speak their mind. See Mycon below.
dottotech (5 months ago)
I actually take offence to that
Dave Rezac (7 months ago)
Wow.. When I watch Steve's videos, things start to make sense..Very concise information in an easy to understand format. I'm planning on using Todoist but I wanted to watch a few videos about it first. after watching Steve's video, I am sure Todois is for me.. Thanks

Thank you for this great video, you gave a good overview in form of a vision. That sparked my interest. I gave you a like but I would also like to Tipp a small amount of BitcoinCash to you. Would be cool if you'd include cryptocurrencie addresses in the bottom of your descriptions to make that possible (note: if you do, please include them as a link because it's imposible to copy text out of the description on the Android app)
Atropin I.V. (1 year ago)
must have been free !
Steve Palmo (1 year ago)
I agree 100%. Your comments at the beginning of this video is exactly what I said to my professional colleagues literally yesterday whereas any to-do/project management application MUST integrate with emails since using dedicated SaaS software for projects mandates the recipients of the tasks to always have to remember their password for yet another system. I just need the ability to send someone/anyone a task or project details and when they respond to the email, their comments get appended to the specific task. This is why Outlook 2016 tasks absolutely are useless as it does not do this even when assigned to them, so after hearing your video, you confirmed my biggest requirement which is why today i will be upgrading to todoist premium. thanks

Great video, sir! I've recently started implementing much of my pastoral work through the Google platform. Your videos have been very helpful for me to integrate ToDoist and Boomerang Calendar in my Gmail. Thank you!
Nick Smith (1 year ago)
Steve, been using todoist for about 3 moths which really helps me. I tend to and new items by using the email function where you forward the email to a certain email,address and this puts the email into your todoist inbox.
Michael Ambrose (1 year ago)
Paid tech features in 2017???? Get the fuck outta here. There will always be people to do it free and better.
Thomas Jespersen (1 year ago)
I have tried many todo apps on both iOS and Android (some paid apps), and I keep coming back to Todoist. I should mention that you do not need to pay for a premium subscription. It's fully functional for free but there is a few nice features in the premium if you go for that.

Hi Steve, Is this still your favorite tool for To Do lists? Do you have another video comparing various To Do lists platforms? Thanks
dottotech (1 year ago)
No comparisons, but I have switched to Asana
John Podkomorski (1 year ago)
I'm looking for a way to manage birthdays, anniversaries, scheduled changes to furnace filters - i.e. repetitive tasks that help me remember to do things every so often. Onenote does not, Evernote does not, but does Todoist? I'm using Gmail with Candlendars5, and for repeat tasks I can't use the pc, but need to use the iPhone to set a recurrance. Any thoughts?
Philip Owen (7 months ago)
You can tell it to set tasks on dates like every 4th Tuesday of the month at 11:00 am. It has powerful scheduling features.
Anthony Foister (1 year ago)
John Podkomorski Todoist is highly recommended and great for projects like you mentioned!
Mycon (1 year ago)
So you just praise the software without actually showing the interface. I downloaded this on Windows Phone since I got the premium account with a bundle, the interface is horrible. Even just the settings tab doesn't react to touch, they ported on windows phone just so they can say they support that platform. I know I'm like one of three windows phone users, but I like my phone. Guess I'm not gonna be ToDoing any time soon.
dottotech (1 year ago)
No I did not test it on every available platform. But it works fine in both Android and iOS.
George Gerbasi (2 years ago)
How do you get the "Add to Todoist" button to show as a button?
Matthew Mergen (2 years ago)
Thanks for you video. Does ToDoist manage tasks accross multiple Gmail accounts for those who use separate accounts for work and personal?
Matthew Mergen (2 years ago)
Thanks so much for your reply. This seems to work across accounts as long as I am logged into the "Person" in Chrome where I have emails linked to my tasks.
dottotech (2 years ago)
I think only one account

Steve, Old Guy/Gmail 101 question: You "installed the Chrome Browser extension"....that's where I Iost it. I use Gmail. I have Chrome on my PC and iPhone. I added Todoist on both and I love it. To add the TD integration to my Gmail, how and where does the Chrome Browser extension get added, connected, activated or other. Dave
David Freeman (2 years ago)
Got it Steve.  Thanks to Dottotech for being my go to geek.  My Authors supporting Authors FB community loves your presentations.  They think I'm really smart for sharing your stuff.  :)I'm polishing my tech skills for video, meetings, memory and networking as I fire up our Authors supporting Authors podcast.

Kerry Dawson (2 years ago)
Honestly I've used Todoist for a long time. The email thing is fine but it isn't the b all and end all. The major thing about Todoist is it is fully cross platform and the interface is identical reducing learning. Finally, you can decrease overwhelm in the visual field. Swipes though does a better job. Finally, antyone who uses gmail already has huges strikes against them. It is so yesterday and more importantly its IMAP is not consistent to the standard and it is kludged to death. Bad, bad, bad.
Kerry Dawson (2 years ago)
Sorry I didn't mean to imply gmail isn't alright and doesn't do it for a lot.The only thing I was getting at is it is a non-standard implementation of the IMAP protocol. So if you're hold it up in a fashion that this is just the ideal, it's not but only in terms of implementation. This really is probably only of interest to those that follow standards and the implementation. I find I have to have gmail whether I want it or not based on all the things gmail is required for. So this is not gmail bashing or putting down.
RocketMyDog1 (2 years ago)
I avoid subscription services.
Question: Have you considered 2Do? We have been using 2Do for the past year, and it has been the best app thus far at keeping our focus on not just tasks, but also Checklists and Projects!
dottotech (2 years ago)
+Unhindered Creations LLC Sounds pretty good, I will have to check it out!
Fiona Potts (2 years ago)
Can you tell me - does the TD button on the top in Gmail come when you subscribe? I've just started to try and use it, but it has the bottom one, but no button. Then I'm not sure how to add to it from within an email, as it doesn't show then... Thanks.
dottotech (2 years ago)
+Fiona Potts You add it as a extension, in your browser.
Fiona Potts (2 years ago)
+Fiona Potts Hey - forget that. I've discovered that it doesn't seem to work with emails that came in before I installed todoist... I think. btw - love your video helpers. Great - keep up the good work! x

DontTakeCrack (3 years ago)
weird, my problem with todo list applications isn't much about usage. for me, it's just that they almost all work the same so i could use any of em.
dottotech (3 years ago)
+DontTakeCrack I am not sure I 100% agree, they have the same goal, but for example Trello and Asana are completely different. But I will say if you use them well they all will ACCOMPLISH the same thing.

Similar to Evernote.

+vehegu I don't think so, works with Evernote yes,but not really similar.
Mike Persell (3 years ago)
I’ve had a much different experience with Todoist. They seem to be a productivity killer and don’t understand data integrity. They’re a little upgrade crazy with ads and nudges to upgrade. I like what I see in the feature comparison so I click upgrade. The upgrade banner and click site sends me a you’re not authorized internal 403 error twice. This is not very secure so I used a different credit card and I feel like I have to have the original card cancelled and order a new one. I get charged twice and I still have no upgrade. I order a 3rd time on a different card and the process works error free. The next day my iPhone version of the Todoist app won’t sync iPhone to web or any other platform. Support instructs me to uninstall the app and then re-install but tells me I will need to write down on paper all the input I have in the phone. I’m not exactly impressed by this experience so far. I’ve had the app 3 days and have phantom credit credit card charges twice, uninstall and re-install but lose all my data.
Mike Persell (3 years ago)
+dottotech I have and they have since the billing issue but the iPhone issue is still at large. I think they haven't found the root cause. They have been responsive in light of my impatience.
dottotech (3 years ago)
+Mike Persell I have not had this sort of experience with +todoist. Did you contact their customer service dept?
Caroline Graham (3 years ago)
Normally I "live" in Evernote. But I have been using Google's task list for sometime.  One thing that I use almost daily is being able to copy/paste a list from anywhere and have it quickly turn into a usable checklist rather than have to input each item individually.  Is there any more robust to do list app out there that has that ability? All I have tried seem to require individual task input.  I find myself occasionally saving a list to both Evernote - to get the web links and formatting (check boxes are not automatically added), and Google tasks, to get the quick checklist to use on the go.
Caroline Graham (3 years ago)
Also you mention in one video "migrating everything from..." That is a huge stumbling block for me in trying a new app, especially if things must be migrated one at a time. Easy migration from another app or database would inspire me to try and perhaps switch to another, something app developers might want to consider.
Wassim Taher (3 years ago)
Nothing kills me for giving a like. I'd even consider myself a jerk if I don't. Thank you Steve.
dottotech (3 years ago)

unbelvbl (3 years ago)
READ THIS BEFORE PAYING FOR TODOIST. You cannot share tasks from within a project if the entire project has not been shared.  Take for example the following comment on their website from a user: I have many tasks I want to assign to others, but I don't need or want to share the entire project and I certainly don't want them to control the project. Consider HR. If I have a project to hire a new employee, I could have the following tasks:  Send new hire packet to employee (me)  Finalize salary for employee (their manager)  Complete benefits forms (the employee)  Complete waivers and confidentiality paperwork (the employee)  Setup in payroll system and create employee file (my assistant)  Setup new office (facilities manager)  Setup new computer (IT manager)  Run background check (outside vendor)  and a dozen others...  As you can see, it wouldn't make sense for me to share the entire project with all of these people, but I want to share and assign the tasks with others.  HOWEVER, YOU CANNOT DO THIS. To share tasks, you have to share the entire project with all the people you intend to assign tasks.

I think Trello is visually appealing but lacks the scalability of Asana.
unbelvbl (3 years ago)
Tnx. I'll give that a try. Whats your opinion on Trello vs Asana?
Mike Vardy (3 years ago)
While there are ways to use Todoist like this, I'd say that Asana would be a more ideal option.
dottotech (3 years ago)
+unbelvbl It sounds to me like you are needing project management software, not "task" software, Let's ask our resident expert +Mike Vardy what he thinks, but it looks to me as though you need an entirely different tool!

Mark Brodie (3 years ago)
+dottotech Thanks, for getting back to me so quick!  I'll pass onto you for your cocktail knowledge library of quotes. It's one of my favorite quotes.  Jason Nesmith (spoke it about 9 or 10 times in the movie Galaxy Quest): "Never give up. Never surrender". Meaning whatever dreams you have going for yourself, don't ever stop in your pursuit of achieving it. Don't surrender to the evil spirit or influencer sitting on your shoulder saying "You can't achieve it - it's really not worth it"!  That's a bold-face lie! Keep on producing your most informative "Know-How/About Instructional Video Series". I'm a most appreciative loyal subscriber! Have a great 2015!

Interesting tool for Todoist. How to set up an iCal "link"  so that you can have your ToDoist activities show in the Mac calendar, iPhone/iPad calendar, google calendar, Sunrise etc or any iCal compatible calendar automatically..

Hei Steve, you din mention anything about taks list collaboration with teams.. So how does todoist compare to Asana ? Also i too use Gmail as my default todo list and i simply use the various markers and 3 simple segmentation, Important, just to read, have not read yet.

+Karls Prahalad Not sure what you are looking for here, I have not compared that way of team task management, Sorry.

FYI: Your advertisement here is double the volume of your video.   How do you compare this to using Evernote as a "To Do List" - as you had mentioned in your Evernote videos?

+Edie Williams I really like it for tasks and to do's far more features than we find in Evernote for tasks. AS to the volume, I have no control overt the levels that others upload, I can only set my own....sorry.
Seth Chomout (3 years ago)
+dottotech Steve, have you looked at either Wunderlist or Trello, these are the three to do list things I am thinking about using, I wanted to see if you had thoughts on why Todoist is better?

cocteaufan (3 years ago)
As you said at the start Steve this is a busy space and Todoist falls at the first hurdle for me. You cannot add attachments on the free version and there's quite a few limitations on the free version. When there are so many others out there that give you so much more for free i'm afraid Todoist isn't going to cut it for me. Currently playing with Wunderlist, Asana, Trello and Producteev - all are well specified even on the free versions. I like them all but think Producteev and Trello will be seeing the most use from me. Always look forward to your videos :)

+Sumudu Gunaratne Great tip! thanks!
Dan Nichols (3 years ago)
Hi, how is this email facet of the extension (todoist) any better than gmail's native "create an event" or "add to tasks"? I'm going to play around with it because you said it was cool but unless we're working on teams and assigning tasks I don't see it "yet". Thanks for the video.
dottotech (3 years ago)
+Dan Nichols It adds taste to Todoist, the native "add to task" in Gmanil adds the task to Google tasks.It is cool IF you want to use Todoist...
Tuguy Esgin (3 years ago)
Thanks for the video Just wondered how todolist stacks up against wunderlist. googlekeep and anydo. I am just a simple user of gmail, evernote and now have downloaded asana thanks to your video.  Still trying to get my head around asana and now the todo list.   Can I please ask, if your someone like me a novas productivity app user what are the essential apps and nice to have apps for gmail , chrome and evernote beginner users?
dottotech (3 years ago)
+Tuguy Esgin If you like Asana, I would just stay with it for tasks, if you find it a bit much my next choice would be Todoist,  wunderlist is great, but does not scale into a team environment, it is the simplest, of the 3. Keep is competition to Evernote IMO, so you probably do not need to spend too much time with it. 
withmikes (3 years ago)
Spent the first two minutes talking about how important it is that integrates with email and how the product works with all email clients that anyone would care about... Except it **does NOT** work with Apple Mail!!! 
dottotech (3 years ago)
+withmikes I see that now, I dumped Apple mail years ago, so I guess that is why I missed, it. I have to say a surprising omission on Todoists part (not mine of course ;-))

The great +Productivityist has a blog post about Todoist filters and after reading the article and implementing his filter structure system (which I copied exactly, including colors), I have been able to better organize Todoist in a much more efficient and easy to use manner AAAAAND I've become better at writing run on sentences!

Great fun watching your videos! I was wondering which is the biggest difference between Todoist and Gqueues? So far both allow you to make from a task from a email in gmail and look pretty similar. Thanks in advance.
Chris Shields (4 years ago)
Steve, your TubeTorials are excellent! Thank you for taking the time to Produce the Webinars and share your abundance of knowledge and ideas!  My question is this, which App do you prefer more, Todoist or Swipes? I am an avid Evernote User and I recently stumbled upon Swipes with Evernote Integration, so I am curious about your thoughts. Thank you! Chris.
dottotech (4 years ago)
+Chris Shields Thanks Chris, I am not too up on Swipes, but I am a big fan to ToDoist. IN fact we have a webinar coming up next week looking at task managers and we will certainly be including Evernote Integration. Check it out http://webinarjam.net/webinar/go/3245/3dc7c247ab
Bookmarks For Life (4 years ago)
Steve, great video as expected, but I think it's worth mentioning--did not see anyone else mention it–that you can get a simplified version of Todoist for free. Maybe that wasn't available a few months ago when you did the video, or they added capabilities, but it seems like a good way to get your feet wet before plunking down the $30 or so. Granted for you, the $30 option is not a factor because of your dependence on email integration as you mention, but for others it can definitely be a consideration.

You're doing a great job, Steve, many thanks. Your videos are useful, right to the point, and very important, they help make wise decisions.

Of Course we want more videos with YOU!  I'd like to compliment you again, for the professional way that you GET THE MESSAGE ACROSS and details count.  With that thought in mind, Id like you to take a quick look at this link: Nuance Free PDF Reader   they are a company long time in business, they are an example of how not to present and they NEED YOU desperately! They have a good product, but I don't know if they well make it through the year. Bob H

+dottotech Thank you Steve for the video. I was looking for a replacement for Nozbe, and I got really interested in +Todoist after reading the post (http://www.productivityist.com/blog/why-todoist) of +Mike Vardy  After seeing the integration with Gmail, I think it's a no brainer!

+Nicolas Duchemin Let su know how it goes! Why the need to replace Nozbe?

Try iqtell for better email integration
Sahaf Flam (4 years ago)
+dottotech , Thanks for the kind words. IQTell combines & integrates all the needed tools in one place.  Helping streamline the natural flow from email, calendar, tasks, projects, and notes.   Users can pick and choose which part for the app to use, but at the end of the day we are all juggling emails, calendars, notes, tasks, and projects.  Often these are related so it lends itself that information should flow smoothly rather than us hopping b/n apps and sending info from here to there.   Imagine a simple search for info, in IQTell, you can do a quick search and find results across all your email accounts, Evernote, tasks and project.

+Gijs Epping I like what I am seeing from IQtel, but it is one big app!

Watched this video and 1 minute after it was over I downloaded Todoist. Used it just 1 day and then purchased a year subscription. The best to-do / task manager app available. Trust me because I have crazy ADHD and I'm always looking for the best task manager app. I've tried them all and Todoist is King.

This video was great, but the honesty of your comment led me to download Todoist and use it for the day. By EOB, I purchased the Premium annual subscription. I have tried Wunderlist Premium, Gneo (iOS), Any.do, Remember the Milk etc. and Todoist simply adds the most value to my life and in my opinion is THE BEST To-Do List application/software out!

Aloha Steve. Must be hard to stick to one to to program. Which one are u using currently?
dottotech (4 years ago)
+Wendell Sakagawa LOL I switch all the time so I can demo them, but I am currently using +Todoist

Steve, You've said it so well!! Determining the best choice for a task management app was a bit daunting and took me innumerable hours of homework before I "pulled the trigger." I am new to mac and by no-stretch-of-the-imagination a techie! I've fallen head over heels for mac and hope to use it optimally. My work and home life are exhaustive with tasks and projects and the plan is to ditch the cumbersome backpack and go paperless. So, I downloaded Evernote, taskclone, and todoist on my macbook air and android. Completely overwhelmed, but your videos have been invaluable! Thank you!!

This video which seemed shorter than 7 minutes. (I'm spoiled from your awesome webinars. This is the only channel I support through Patreon ) I am unable to figure out how to add sub projects to a "parent" project. If you just hit the plus sign, you can create either/or. If you select sub project, it shows up as a separate entity. I was unable to find anything on their website or the demo YouTube videos. It's frustrating because I am a premium ToDoist subscriber and this is one of the perks. Although this is the most helpful task manager app I've used,I must say. You can also create tasks from websites in the ToDoist Chrome browser extension which is just as awesome as creating a task from an email for me;)
lau S (4 years ago)
Thanks ! I think I found a work-around. After creating a new sub-project, you can drag it to the desired parent task in the list of project folders.  Thanks for responding to my comment! +dottotech (edited for typos and clarity)

Thanks +Laura S I appreciate your support big time!As to the +Todoist question, let's see if they respond here, I think they keep an eye on Google+.

How does it compare to Wunderlist ( Add to Wunderlist addon adds add to wunderlist button in common sites including Gmail)?
Yu Zhengwen (4 years ago)
True.. I saw Wunderlist 3 too...Amazing
Scott Pleasants (4 years ago)
+dottotech I think Wunderlist 3 has Todoist beat.  Some of the key features that you have to pay for with Todist are free with Wunderlist 3.   I would like to see how it works with Office365.
Yu Zhengwen (4 years ago)
+dottotech Though you need the premium to fully make use of it (Notes, Reminders ETC.)
dottotech (4 years ago)
I think it is more fully featured,

Thanks for the video... after a few days trying this out, i moved from Wunderlist to Todoist. Check this video too: To do list + Project Management SUPER COMPARISON! Would be nice to make a deep review on each like this one. And keep up with the great quality videos Dotto! Really apreciated. Best Regards from Brazil.
