Apple Reminders to Todoist (for macOS)
This script transfers your reminders from Apple Reminders to your Todoist.
What information will be transferred
- The title/name of the reminder
- The body/description (adds a Todoist "note") - only Todoist Premium
- The due/remind date (in Apple Reminders both dates are the same) - only Todoist Premium
- The priority
(Applescript has no access to these information yet)
- Remind by location
- Remind interval/repetition (e.g. daily)
Why/When you should use this script?
If you prefer to use Todoist over Reminders but still want to use Siri for
creating ToDo's (e.g. on your iPhone or on your Apple Watch). You could use some
Apps like IFTTT or Workflow but they just don't transfer important information
like the due date (and I use
"Hey Siri, remind me to do that at 3 pm" on
my Apple Watch alot).
Edit and Configure
You can edit this code, just make sure to select
At the top you'll find the lines:
// config var listName = '...', todoistToken = '...';
Just write your Apple Reminders list name (case sensitive, doesn't have to be
the full name, e.g. if you use Emojis) and your Todoist token (which can be
found in the
Todoist Settings >
You can run this script manually by opening it in
Script Editor (and choosing
CMD + R), or by running it via
Or run this script automatically (like daily or hourly) via cronjob. You can
edit your cronjobs by runningy
crontab -e on the Terminal or just install
Cronnix for editing over a GUI.
If you run this script as a cron job (like me) and it annoys you to see the
Reminders app icon in the Dock every few hours (like me),
you can hide the
Reminders Dock icon with this script:
Edit: After the latest MacOS Updates you shouldn't hide native apps anymore. My AppleScript hadn't Reminders permissions anymore.
After hiding the icon you have to run the Reminders app, accept everything (Reminders want to access this and that), quit the app and open it again. If everything is fine you should see your lists and reminders and no Dock icon.
