Add Tasks to Todoist from within Twist

Effective teamwork requires turning talk into action. That's why Twist is designed so you can turn any conversation into a Todoist task without having to leave the app. Here's how:

Simply click the Todoist icon in the top right of any thread to quick add a task.


You can add threads as tasks to Todoist on any platform using the action buttons.

After clicking the icon, you will see the Todoist quick add window. It will be automatically populated with a link to your current thread. You can edit the task as usual, as well as assign it to a project or set a due date. Click Add Task and the item will immediately appear in your Todoist app with a link back to the thread.

If you’re using Todoist for team task management, you can easily delegate threads to your teammates as tasks.

First, create a shared Todoist project and invite the teammates with whom you’d like to collaborate. Now, when you convert a Twist thread into a Todoist task, you’ll be able to select the assignee immediately in the Quick Add prompt by typing + and selecting the user from the list.

Learn how to quickly select projects, labels, dates and more with Todoist's Quick Add article in the Todoist Help Center.
