Overall Satisfaction with Todoist

I use Todoist to keep track of project items that might not fit better inside of a work item in TFS. A few other team members use it as well. The ability to schedule tasks in the future or as recurring jobs is a great plus, especially in the free edition.
  • The recurring (every day/week/Tuesday/15th) scheduling is a great plus.
  • The mobile app works flawlessly, in my experience.
  • I like being able to group tasks under projects.
  • You need to pay for Premium to add notes to work items (not a big deal, really).
  • As a simple and straightforward tool, it's easy for users from all areas of the company to make use of it.
  • The free version is usually sufficient, but the premium version is great, too.
I tried using Meister for its email integration, but in general, the built-in task tracker in our email client was sufficient in that regard. Todoist feels less clunky than the tasks that Outlook offers (ditto Gmail) and it's nice to have a separate app for task management. Additionally, the Todoist app is just for tasks (as we use it) so there's no digging around trying to find the screen you need.
The documentation and tutorials on the Todoist site are very easy to follow. Whenever you add an item to Todoist, you have tooltips/cues for how you may want to format the work item (as recurring, as a future task, as part of another project, etc). I haven't had to reach out to Todoist support formally so I can't speak to that.

Did Todoist live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Todoist go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Todoist again?

Yes

For tracking "yes/no, is this item done" Todoist is great. The recurring task scheduling is a great way to keep track of things that you've got to do every so often or always on a particular date/day. The interface is straightforward and easy to use, and the mobile app is intuitive, too. If you need to track the history or discussion of a work item, Todoist is probably not the tool you want.
