Overall Satisfaction with Todoist

We haven't networked Todoist, but I use it every day, and it's my task list, reminder checklist, and high-level task organizer. It integrates nicely with many of the services we use, and by pairing it with Zapier, it has become a really cool way to keep things on track. I used many other similar apps in the past, but I find Todoist to be the best for my needs.
  • Works on mobile and in the browser.
  • Has the ability to link to emails for follow up.
  • Syncing between devices is in near real-time.
  • Time zone calendar syncing needs to improve.
  • Deleted calendar items need to work better -- the issue is tied to Zapier I think.
  • There's a log-in issue when Chrome updates have to be better managed.
  • Todoist offers great value for money. I will keep using it.
  • It allows me to look quickly at what's important each day.
  • It helps me keep others on track by reminding me of what's important.
It's clean, simple, and easy to use. This ease of use approach ties directly to time. There's no real learning curve, as the intuitive nature of Todoist makes it a snap to start using. That leads to more use and regular use. Even when I get really busy with travel, events, and meetings, the multi-device approach to deploying and using Todoist allows me to "catch up" quickly and clear my lists. The more I use Todoist, the more time I have to do the things that need to get done.
Like all cloud-based companies, support is hit or miss, as the language and automated help needs to be fine-tuned. When you get a real person, Todoist solves the problem.
We tested against Wunderlist and never looked back. Todoist was better from the start and, being a Google G Suite team, the idea of Microsoft buying Wunderlist helped convince us to look at Todoist even more. We already were testing them both, but the acquisition had us concerned about future direction, and we made the right choice.
For people who keep lists, Todoist is the bomb. It's suited for anyone who needs to follow up on their own work and the work of others. The ability to "tag" tasks and group them together is a big plus for the organization. It can get a bit overwhelming, though, if you have too many. Label management needs to also "remind" the user of labels that have not been used in a while and ask to archive. That would be a nice hygiene feature to add.
