Is there a way to setup a rule to automatically 'star' a task if some selected criteria is met? Eg star the task if the due date is within the next n days or if the due date is within n days and the priority is greater than y - you get the idea.
I realise that there are lots of ways to use this great tool, but that would certainly help me - maybe if it can't be done now it could be a future feature suggestion!
No, but that is sort of how the Hotlist works: https://www.toodledo.com/info/help.php?sel=1
Another thing you can do is set up a saved search for whatever criteria you want tasks to meet to get starred. then, whenever you are on the site, you could use multiedit to make sure every task in that search gets a star. Anyway, autostarring is an interesting suggestion.
