Today we are releasing a Gmail gadget, that you can add to your Gmail sidebar to get quick access to your to-do list when reading your email. This is a super convenient way to quickly add/edit tasks as you process your inbox.

Instructions for installing the Gmail gadget.

In addition, we have made a number of small improvements to our slim website that the Gmail gadget is built upon.

1) The "breadcrumbs" that you can use to go back a level in the hierarchy, are now usable on the task details page and even persist through editing a task or navigating to a subtask. This will make it easier to navigate back up to a list you were viewing.

2) It is now possible to sort by "Importance" and "Status".

3) It is now possible to select "All Tasks" and "Add Task" as default start screens for the gadget.

4) It is now possible to delete a note from a task.

This is absolutely awesome. I live in my Gmail inbox, so having Toodledo there really makes my day. A few days ago I thought of suggesting it as a feature - looks like you're reading my mind. Thank you!

Tried it ... great except that I cannot move it towards the top (so I have to scroll). I know this is a gmail/gadgets issue but do you know of any way to change the location of the gadget?

You can change the order of the boxes in the sidebar, just enable the Google lab feature that allows you to do this and then drag Toodledo to the top.

Ah. Thanks. FYI for others - that labs feature is called "Navbar drag and drop" (I never considered the left side panel to be called a Navbar).

Ability to reduce the font size would make this gadget perfect (same request for the firefox sidepanel add-on too)

OK,

I am using it and it's 10 Times better than the Gmail Todo list.

The one problem I have seen so far is accessing the options when in a folder. The icon that let's you choose how to sort is hidden under the breadcrumbs making it hard to select correctly.

You are limited in how wide this Gadget can be in Gmail, so I am not sure what a good solution would be. If the breadcrumbs would add a second row as you dig deeper, this could make things easier.

just an FYI

Yes, I just saw this too. Perhaps the sort options icon could go next to the refresh icon where there is a little space.

Another thing is that I wish I could pop the gadget out of the sidebar, like you can do with the Google Tasks, but I suppose that is something that Google would have to do, and not Toodledo.

For a first run, it's great if not almost perfect. I receive most of my task by email at work, so I would not use the Gmail Gadget as often, but it's nice to have it there. My personal business emails will be easy to process now.

As an fyi, if you like the smaller fonts used in the gmail gadget over the slim site, you can use this url instead (http://www.toodledo.com/slim/gmail.php) and choose to load it in your Firefox Sidebar.

This is not to be used in your gmail as a gadget. I was giving this to be used as a site that is loaded into the firefox sidebar.

Neat trick Vin. That can probably help me maximize my use of screen real estate.

Anders, I thought of you on your small screen when I wrote this. But in testing it I found that some links open in the main window instead of staying in the sidebar. I don't know if this is a FF 3.5 issue or not. Let me know if it works out for you.
