If you’re an enrolled student, educational professional, or educational organization and are interested in applying for the 50% discount, here’s how to submit an application:

  1. You or your organization needs a Todoist Business account before applying for the discounted pricing. You can learn more about Todoist Business by reviewing our compare plans page.
    • If you already have a Todoist Business account, skip straight to step 2.
    • If you have a Todoist Free or Todoist Premium account, you can easily convert to Todoist Business without losing any of your data by starting a 30 day free trial.
    • If you don’t have a Todoist or Todoist Business account, you can start your free Todoist Business trial here.

    • Your name
    • Your email address (.edu or local equivalent preferred)
    • Your Todoist Business team name

    • Your organization/school/institution’s website
    • Your organization/school/institution’s location (state/province, country)
    • A brief description of the institution or project you will be using Todoist Business with

For more details on why the discount only applies to Todoist Business and does not apply to Todoist Premium, read the first question in the FAQs section below.

How the discount works

We will review your application and get back to you within 10 business days.

Once you’re approved, the discount will automatically be applied to your Todoist Business billing from that point on for a full year. Any invoices you incur over the next year will be charged at 50% of the full cost.

  • If you’re new to Todoist Business and are still on your 30 day trial when you’re approved, your first charge will be discounted by 50%. If you apply in the final few days of your trial, we may not have time to review your application and apply the discount to your first charge. Be sure to apply as early as possible.
  • If you’re an existing Todoist Business customer, your next invoice will be charged at 50% once your application has been approved.

If your approval is denied, we will email you directly to let you know. You can then cancel your Todoist Business account if necessary.

FAQs

Q: Can I get the discount applied to Todoist Premium?

A: Unfortunately, this discount only applies to Todoist Business due to the way backend payments are handled.

We ask that you convert your account to a Todoist Business account, where you'll enjoy all the same features as Todoist Premium (as well as a few additional features) for the same price. Todoist Business can be used by individuals as well as teams.

Note that converting to Todoist Business will not affect your existing projects or tasks in any way.

Q: Can the discount apply to fees that I’ve already paid? Will it be prorated?

A: No, we cannot provide refunds for invoices you’ve already paid. The discount will not be prorated in any way, either. However, we will certainly apply the full discount to all future payments.

This also applies to the end of your free trial. If we approve your application after your 30-day free trial is over, we will not be able to reimburse you for the first month. That’s why it’s important to apply as early as possible.

Q: I’ve sent my application but haven’t heard back yet. How long does it take?

A: We will try to respond to inquiries within 10 business days. If it’s been over 10 days, please contact our support team.

Q: What is my “Todoist Business Team Name” and where can I find it?

A: Your Todoist Business Team Name is the team name you used when you signed up for your Todoist Business account.

If you have forgotten your Todoist Business team name, you can find it by logging into your Todoist admin console using the instructions below:

  • On the web, log into Todoist. Make sure you are logging in from the admin account for this Todoist Business team.
  • Click the gear icon in the top right.
  • Select Todoist Business Admin.
  • Click the Account and Billing link to the left.
  • Your account name will be found under Team Name.

Q: What if I can’t provide the requested information to prove my educational status? Can I still get the discount?

A: If you cannot prove your educational status using the documentation above, we will not be able to approve the discount. We will not be able to make any exceptions.

Q: What if I change my Todoist Business admin email address? What if I want to transfer ownership to another admin?

A: Your discount will apply to the Todoist Business account, not the email address itself. So as long as that account is active, it will still have the discount.

Q: How long is the discount period, and what happens when my discount period is up?

A: Your discount is good for 1 year from the date of approval, and we’ll send you a reminder about your discount status 14 days prior to expiration.

If you want to continue your discount without interruption, make sure to submit your application at least 10 days prior to expiration by visiting todoist.com/education and following the same steps as you did before.

If you fail to re-apply in time and your discount runs out, you can still re-apply by visiting todoist.com/education and following the same steps as you did before.
