Add Todoist Tasks Right from Slack

We’re excited to announce that Todoist is now integrated with Slack – one of our most requested integrations of all time!

Starting today, you can add tasks to Todoist from any Slack channel or direct message so you can get back to work without breaking your flow.   

Say your coworker pings you in the middle of the day:

Slack Task

When you type “/todoist Pick up a cake tonight at 6pm #Errands @urgent” into a direct message or channel, a task to “Pick up a cake” will automatically be added to your Errands project due at 6pm tonight with the label @urgent.  And you can enjoy the peace-of-mind that comes with knowing you won’t commit the cardinal sin of forgetting to bring the office birthday cake. Crisis averted?

However, if real-time chat is making your team less productive rather than more, it might be time for a change. Protect your team’s time and attention with a more mindful way to communicate. Learn about Twist, which we designed for calmer, more organized communication.
