Todist has today announced new Integrations with Evernote, Google Calendar & Github.
The new integrations come as the company looks to diversify itself and become a one stop shop when it comes to organising you workflow. Each integration with Evernote, Google Calendar & Github work differently ad we will have a look at each of them individually.
Whilst Evernote is a great app, it can be tricky to keep track of what information you need to take action on and when.
With the integration with Todoist, you need to enable the integration and choose the Evernote notebooks you want to turn into Todoist projects. To turn an Evernote note into a Todoist task, simply add an Evernote reminder. The note title will appear as the task name with a link right back to the original note contents. Complete the task in Todoist and the Evernote reminder will automatically be marked as done too.
With the integration with Todoist, you can see your Todoist tasks for the day, week, or month ahead in your Google Calendar with instant synchronisation. To enable this, all you need to do is flick the switch to enable integration and any Todoist tasks with due dates and times will appear right in your calendar. If you make any changes to to the event due date and time, this will automatically sync back to your Todoist task.
Though it is important to note that tasks with a start and end time in Google Calendar will appear with only the start time in Todoist. For example, “Check email from 10am to 10:30am” in Google Calendar will appear as “Check email at 10am” in Todoist.
Your GitHub to-do’s can now be integrated within Todoist, with new projects created within Todoist with all of the issues that are assigned to you. Any task you complete in Todoist will automatically be marked as done in GitHub and vice versa.
Tidiest has also announced that with the new integration and services, that it has officially launched its first ever Todoist Global Developer Challenge which begins today.
