Getting Started

Trigger a workflow on Sync Resources with Todoist API. When you configure and deploy the workflow, it will run on Pipedream's servers 24x7 for free.

  1. Configure the Sync Resources trigger
    1. Connect your Todoist account
    2. Configure Polling Interval
    3. Select one or more Resource Types
  2. Add steps to connect to 700+ APIs using code and no-code building blocks
  3. Deploy the workflow
  4. Send a test event to validate your setup
  5. Turn on the trigger


This is a pre-built, open source component from Pipedream's GitHub repo. The component is developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Todoist uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Todoist account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Todoist and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Todoist API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:
