As you may know, the time has come to say goodbye to Wedoist. Please read on to hear why we’ll no longer offer the app, get details on when the changes will go into effect, and find out more information about our offer to help you make a smooth transition to Twist with free access until December 21, 2017.
Goodbye Wedoist. Hello Twist.
Wedoist was originally created as a solution to tackle two key areas of work in one space: task management & team communication. While we had some success in achieving this goal, we ultimately learned that these two problems require their own individual solutions. That’s why we’ve been working on developing two distinct solutions instead of combining them into one.
For task management, we have Todoist, an intuitive and efficient way for people to organize every aspect of their lives. It helps you get tasks out of your head and onto your to-do list so that you can get more things done and enjoy life along the way.
For team communication, we’ve spent the last two years applying our learnings as a fully remote company of 50 people in 20 countries to build Twist, a modern team communication tool focused on promoting transparency, mindful collaboration, and deep work.
Instead of collaborating by email and leaving important information stuck in people’s inboxes or resorting to distracting line-at-a-time group chat apps, Twist is designed so your team can have calm, in-depth conversations that stay neatly organized by topic. Furthermore, Twist integrates seamlessly with Todoist so that you can turn conversations into actionable tasks with just one click.
This powerful combination of team communication and task management is a huge step forward from what Wedoist has been able to provide. We’re excited to invite you to take that step by migrating from Wedoist to Twist for free. Please continue reading for additional details.
How it will work
We know that switching from one team tool to another takes time, effort and energy. That’s why we’re keeping Wedoist alive until December 21, 2017 and giving you free, unlimited access to Twist until that date as well.
Prior to Wedoist’s shutdown, we invite you to take some time to peruse some of Twist’s Getting Started Guides and Best practices in order to learn more about how Twist can help make a positive, productive impact on your team collaboration. We’re confident that Twist will meet your most important teamwork needs, and we’re happy to lend a hand as you transition from Wedoist.
To access your free Twist account, please click the link below. Your team’s account will automatically get upgraded to the unlimited plan and will remain unlimited until December 21, 2017:
Make sure to sign up for Twist Unlimited with the same email as your Wedoist account to get your free access. If you already have a Twist Unlimited account, you will not automatically receive the free offer – please contact us directly so we can provide you with free unlimited access.
Please remember these offers are only valid until December 21, 2017; after which Wedoist will no longer be available, and the free access to Twist will also end.
Q: Can you transfer my data from Wedoist to Twist or Todoist?
We cannot automatically transfer data between platforms. That's why we highly recommend that you download your Wedoist data into a JSON format before the platform shuts down on December 21, 2017. You can do this by navigating to the “My Info” section in your Wedoist account, and clicking on “Backups”. For further details please reference this support article.
Q: What is Twist?
Twist is a modern communication tool that helps you work in a calmer, more organized and more productive way. By using threads to communicate with your team members, your communication stays easily accessible and Twist becomes a central source of knowledge about your team activities.

You will have free access to Twist until December 21, 2017.
Q: How long will my Wedoist account be available?
Wedoist will be available until December 21, 2017.
Q: What will happen to my Wedoist data after December 21?
Wedoist data will no longer be available after December 21. We recommend that you transition to Twist well before then to avoid any last minute rushes.
Q: After December 21, 2017, how much will Twist cost me?
Please read about Twist’s pricing here.
Q: After December 21, 2017, will my Twist account automatically be charged and transitioned to paying accounts?
On December 21 your Twist account will automatically be downgraded to the Free version, unless you decide to continue using the Unlimited version. To continue using the Unlimited plan, you will need to enter a credit card anytime prior to December 21.
More information on the differences between Twist Free and Twist Unlimited can be found here.
Q: Do I have to enter my credit card information to sign up for the offer?
For Twist, no credit card is necessary at sign up.
Q: What if I already subscribe to Twist Unlimited?
The free offer is designed to help Wedoist users during a time of transition to a new set of tools. So if you’re already using Twist Unlimited, then the free offer will not be applied to your account since you have likely already made this transition. If you feel this does not apply to your specific situation, we invite you to contact our support team to see if we can assist you.
