How to enable and use the Todoist integration

Overview

The Todoist integration allows you to complete the following actions directly within Front:

  • View Todoist tasks attached to the selected Front conversation.
  • Mark tasks as complete or incomplete.
  • Search for Todoist tasks across all projects you have access to.
  • View and edit task details.
  • Create new Todoist tasks directly from Front.
  • Link out to the Todoist application for more actions.

Like other integrations, you need to be an admin in order to enable the Todoist integration for the first time, but once enabled it can be used by any teammate.
