Limitations

Currently, we are only able to import a file up to 1MB in size. This is enough room for about 3000 tasks. If your import file is larger than this, it will probably fail to import. The most likely reason why you would have more than 3000 tasks is because you have lots of completed tasks. If you delete your completed tasks from RTM and then export again, this will result in a much smaller file. To delete completed tasks, do a search for "status:completed" and then select all and choose the "delete" option.


Unfortunately, Remember the Milk does not export the names of your lists, so you will not be able to import these into Toodledo's folders. You will need to manually assign folders after importing. One way to work around this issue is to export all of your folders individually from RTM and then import them one at a time to Toodledo. Between each import, you can use our Multi-Edit tool to quickly move each batch of tasks into the correct folder.
