Common Problems with Todoist

Why aren't my notes showing on my task?#

Notes and attachments are Premium features on Todoist, so you will need to purchase Todoist Premium in order for notes to be passed on by your Zap.

Completed sub-tasks aren't triggering my Zap.#

Sub-tasks do not trigger when they're completed but rather when the parent task is completed. Sub-tasks will not trigger until the Task is checked off at which point two Zapier trigger events will fire.
