Sometimes you need to add multiple tasks to Todoist at once. For example, you might have a list of items - such as a grocery list - that you wish to turn into tasks. Fortunately, you don’t have to add each task individually. 

Here is a quick and easy way to add multiple tasks to Todoist:

  1. Copy the list of items that you’d like to turn into tasks.
  2. Open your Todoist and click Add Task.
  3. Paste your list in the task name field.
  4. When asked “Do you want to add X tasks?”, select Add tasks.

Each item needs to be listed in its own line in order to be able to paste them as multiple tasks in Todoist.
