How to Import Tasks from Palm

Many people use PDAs with the Palm OS. This page will explain how to transfer your to-do list from your Palm into Toodledo.

Note: The newest version of the Windows Palm Desktop software has changed the format of the exported file in a way that makes it impossible for Toodledo to import. If you are still running (or have access) to an older version of Palm Desktop, you can use the following instructions.

If your palm export file will not work, then you may have luck using the Dba2CSV program located at, and then using our CSV Importer.

Synchronize your PDA with the Palm Desktop Software

If you have not done so already, you will need to download and install the Palm Desktop software from Palm and follow the instructions to synchronize your PDA with your computer.
