From Topic: Re-ordering tasks



I just don't know what happens to the manual ordering if you change the view? Subtasks are easy because the just fall under the parent task so they can stay in order, but if you manually adjust tasks and then view by folder what should happen to your ordering? Say then you view by due date, how do you get the manual ordering back? It sounds good in theory to manually view but I have no idea how they could make it work in conjunction with the other options.

If you don't do any of those other filters or views and really just want a manually ordered list - make one master task and make everything else a subtask. Then you can drag and drop them in any order you want.

From Topic: Re-ordering tasks



Absolutely Salgud, with the filtering capabilities available I can easily get a reasonably manageable list of tasks that are appropriate for me to choose from, and then based upon my current situation I can choose the one among them that I will work on. Putting them in some sort of anticipatory order is completely counterproductive to me. In the time it would take me to manually order things I can just pick the next one and start working on something.

And absolutely, the beauty of this is that everyone does work differently and some people's needs differ. Everyone should feel free to use this forum to ask for what you want, just don't assume it's what I want as well.

Developers: here's why long-time users of Toodledo still yearn for - and consider leaving Toodledo for -- a list that can be sorted manually.


Wait - did we have a vote to have you speak for all of us? I must have missed that. Maybe change the we to I and the us to me and don't assume that everyone's needs are the same as yours.

Posted by Richard Masters:

This is a relatively small bug but one that is really irritating. It would be so simple to correct but what is Toodledo's attitude to fixing it?
"Thanks for the suggestion. We will think about it"


I don't think it's a bug - it's a valid warning. The option to dismiss gets rid of the larger explanatory text box warning but leaves the small unobtrusive 'warning' at the top to remind that there is a potential issue. I would say they are thinking about if they want to remove a warning to a potentially serious data exposure or if they believe that having the warning stay as long as the issue is present is a better action.

you could just stay on the tasks tab and not use the rest, the lack of integration at this point makes it really easy to ignore the parts you don't need.

Nice - it's like having the mobile site open but having it anchored to the menu bar and easily accessible (with keyboard shortcut!) is fantastic.

Thanks for this.

From Topic: Old Twitter API?



If only you had some sort of program where you could list the things you need to do and check them off when they are done.. ;-)

Glad I'm not the only one who does this sort of thing.

Posted by Jake:
Turns out that we did all the work to support the new API (months ago), but then didn't do the last step of switching over to using the new code. It has now been switched over, and I tested that I could add a task via Twitter and it worked.

which browser do you use? In chrome it's under extensions and in Firefox I think it's under add-ons. If you disable the stylish extension or add-on it will remove any custom styles you have added.

There is an Alfred Extension that can send DMs to Twitter which would seem to let you use all the syntax. I have used the extension and it works well although I haven't tried pushing to Twitter yet.

Yeah, I'm all current on OS. Maybe an Air thing?

I have had it lose connection a couple of times so it would stop adding tasks but resetting it worked. Does it even load or just not add the tasks?

Odd, I still run ToodleAir on my mac and it works well. I'd love to see a good Alfred Integration though.

I very much recommend the ToodleAir program for quick input of tasks. It uses the syntax, doesn't require the site to be open and while iI's unsupported now, it still seems to work pretty well for me.

The thing I really like is that it's just a small input box that can sit atop other windows which is really handy for capturing notes and other details for the task.

Syntax on the quick add would be great as well!

From Topic: Default Start Date



In settings under new task defaults you can set the start day to today as default.

Check your time zone in the settings area. It may be inconsistent with your system time and changing to reflect the difference.

I don't have this problem with Sparrow. Under your Format menu see if you have the 'prefer plain text' option enabled and see if that makes a difference for you.

fwiw I use Sparrow for email and my tasks come in just fine with the body as the note.

I've implemented the 1 Minute ToDo (with modifications) after reading the PDF and I like the simplicity of it. Haven't gone past that to his other work yet but am pleased so far. The start date filtering / freshness idea is really quite good.

One of the nice things about something like ToodleAir is that it is compact and can sit above a browser tab or another window so I can see the details of the source of the new task while I am adding it. If I move to the Toodledo site I lose that visibility unless I start rearranging windows.

There is also the benefit of not seeing my todo list while I am entering the new task which can very quickly derail me from whatever it is that I was working on. This lets me add new items without facing a distraction from tasks already entered.

I certainly don't hate GUI's and I'm not a click counter type of person but with a shortcut key to bring up ToodleAir it's super quick and easy to use and is a good alternative for those who are looking for it.

I still use ToodleAir which basically gives you a command line box to enter tasks on the fly. I'm on a Mac but it's an AIR app so it should work on either platform. It uses the same syntax as email so you can put in all the details you need right from the one line. It sits right on my desktop and I can just zip tasks in as they occur to me.

I do keep Toodledo open in a browser pretty much always but this is a super easy way to add things quickly.

It's not being updated so it could stop working at any time I guess, but it still works well for what I need.

From Topic: URL Links



I prefer to have the control over whether a site opens a link in a new tab (or window) or not. I generally find the automatic littering of my browser with multiple tabs to be disruptive when it's so easy to just choose.

If I want to have multiple things open I use the shortcut or just drag the link up to the tab bar which in Chrome just opens that link in a new tab. If I want that content in a new tab I can do that - if I want it in a whole new window, I can do that as well. If I want it open in the same tab, I can do that as well.

How do you decide which links should or shouldn't generate a new window? If I click the link to the forums from the app I don't want it by default to open in a new tab - but sometimes I might. Give me the choice every time because only I know what I want to do with that new tab.
