Multi-Edit to edit tags without replacing previous values

Hi,

I need to add a tag to a set of tasks, via Multi-Edit, but without replacing the previous tag values, I just need to add new tags rather than replacing existing ones. There have been discussions on this topic for years now, but I am not aware of a solution yet.
Could you please tell me how I could proceed? Is this topic solved?

Thank you in advance.

There is not currently a solution besides copy and pasting the new tag into each task. Sorry.

There's a Greasemonkey script that does just this. It adds a multi-edit box to each page where you can make a selection of your Toodledo tasks. On this set you can then execute several actions such as "Add Tag".

Of course this comes without warranty as it is developed on top of the Toodledo page. That said, I use it quite often without any problems.

Hi Jake,

This is really basic functionality, when does Toodledo expect to add it?

Hi chr.ver,

Thank you for the hint, I will give it a try while I expect some action from Toodledo.

It is on our to-do list, but I do not have an ETA right now.

Hi Jake,

Thank you for your answer. As customer, it is a little bit difficult to understand that we cannot get a time frame where these kind of basic features will be ready. You may not give a precise date, but yes in which quarter. I always see the same kind of answer, the customer may not be fully satisfied with it.

Best Regards

I understand that customers are not fully satisfied when I cannot give a date by which their request will be available. Here is why we do not give dates:

1) In software, it is notoriously difficult to predict development times. Something that I think will take 10 minutes, sometimes takes 10 days. And just as often something that I think will take a week gets done in an hour. For this reason…

2) We do not work with deadlines in our company and we do not schedule features for specific releases. Nor do we line up features in a 1,2,3 list of when we will do them. We have a more flexible approach that allows us to adapt to changing requirements and requests and to work on what we find interesting or important at the moment.

3) Because of these two reasons, any published release date would be entirely arbitrary and could give customers a false expectation and put too much stress on us to meet arbitrary deadlines. We produce better work when we are not stressed.

I hope you understand.

Hi,

I work developing LTE modems, so I can understand the complexity of developing SW and HW. What I do not understand is that you cannot give a rough estimation, e.g. 2014 Q2, or so.
Otherwise, the customer has no clue about what he could expect.

The approach of no giving dates is better for Toodledo, but not for the customer. There is trade-off between precision on the date and customer satisfaction.
