Welcome to TimeCamp Help!

Todoist


Todoist is a great tool for managing and sharing your daily tasks, whether professional ones like managing a project, or private, related to planning a trip, sharing a shopping list, and so on. This application is there to help you. And you can use it everywhere as you may have it on your computer, tablet, and smartphone.


Description 

The integration will be enabled to the entire account, so all users will be able to track time on imported tasks. The integration will be connected to the Todoist account of the person who enabled the integration. 

Projects and the Inbox folder will be imported as tasks under the Todoist project. Todoist tasks will be imported as subtasks under the tasks (projects) they belong to in TimeCamp. 

If someone from your Team added their own projects in Todoist and the person who created the integration was not invited to these projects, they won’t be imported to TimeCamp. Only items the owner of integration has access to could be imported.

We don’t provide an option to select items that should or should not be imported from Todoist to TimeCamp. After the integration is enabled all projects and lists of tasks the owner of integration has access to, will be imported to the Projects module in TimeCamp.

It is not possible to edit the structure of imported items in TimeCamp.

As an integration creator, you automatically gain access to all imported items. Other users are assigned to projects automatically based on their email addresses, which need to match in both TimeCamp and Todoist. You can always assign tasks manually as well. If users are assigned to the main project Todoist they will be able to track time to all tasks under the Todoist project structure. If users are assigned only to certain tasks, they will be able to track time only to these tasks and subtasks under the tasks’ structure.

We don’t provide an option to export tracked time from TimeCamp to the Todoist account.

Tasks marked as completed, archived, or deleted in Todoist will be automatically removed from the list of projects in TimeCamp. If you create a new item in Todoist it will be automatically imported to TimeCamp within 1 hour. To immediately synchronize the integration and update newly added items use the “Force synchronization” option on TimeCamp web Timesheet. Synch will be executed within a few seconds.


If the user who enabled the integration is not a part of your account anymore, we recommend reenabling the integration.
