Using Hookmark with ToDoist

Hookmark can help you get a lot more mental clarity out of todoist.

Attaching a copy of a file directly to a task requires a paid Todoist subscription. Linking a file from Dropbox requires navigating a whole bunch of tiny hierarchical menus to get to the file. This defeats one of Todoist’s most important features: the ability to quickly enter tasks and their associated information.

HOWEVER, Hookmark allows you to get around these and other limitations! Hookmark links your ToDoist tasks to anything they are about (PDFs, other files, emails, contacts, web pages, etc.) as long as Hookmark can get a link to them.

For example, with Hookmark, you can insert a link in ToDoist to the file (on Finder!) you need to write or to the email in that you need to review.

Technical information

  • You can paste Hookmark-garnered links (Copy Link, Hook to Copied Link) into Todoist app tasks.
  • Todoist app has a Copy Link to Task in its UI. (They should call it “Copy URL”, because it’s not a full link.) On any item (e.g., an email or file), you can use Hook to Copied Link on that URL. You might then want to rename the ToDoist link in Hookmark (click the title or link menu in Hookmark, or use the keyboard shortcut).
  • You can get Todoist URLs from the Todoist web app (SaaS) too.
