Connect Todoist to Twist

If you are working together with a team, it can be useful to get updates of your teammates’ progress. That’s when connecting Todoist to Twist can improve the way you work. Here’s how it works today and how to install the integration.

How it Works

This integration allows you to get updates from a Todoist project in any Twist thread.

  • For instance, let’s say your canoe building company, Canoeist, has a Todoist project called Canoeist Blog where you keep track of blog posts.
  • Canoeist also has a Twist thread called New Blog Posts, where teammates discuss new blog posts.
  • Let’s say there’s a new blog post titled Canoe Blog Post. You add it as a Todoist task to the Canoeist Blog project.
  • A new Twist comment is automatically created in the Blog Posts thread as seen below.
  • Other task updates like task completions will automatically show up in the thread, too. This makes it easy to keep track of what everyone’s working on, directly from Twist.
