From Topic: New Section: Lists



I currently use other tools for certain of my lists, but would love to have everything in Tooledo. Before I can use Toodledo lists I need a couple features already noted by others:

1) iOS support
2) Filters
3) Reset Column to unchecked

There are other things I would really like but could live without:

A few more yes/no types (you already have star & checkbox)
I find having a few more yes/no styles useful.
I have some lists that have several yes/no boxes (Ingredients Checked, Ingredients Purchased, Made, Staged, Packed).
In my travel list I have (for each item to pack) several location check boxes (beach, snow, business, camping).
It is nice to have different symbols for each checkbox.
X-Box (empty or X)
Circle (empty or filled) – A few colors would be nice.
Plus-Minus Box
Thumbs up/down
Stop/Go Circle (Red/Green)

A Three State (On, Off, N/A) type with a few icon types.
Thumbs up/down/sideways
Checkbox (Unchecked, Checked, Gray)
Stoplight (Red, Green, Yellow)

Details Columns aka invisible columns – they don’t show in the main list view, but if you click on a row icon you then see all the fields (including details). For examples I don't need to see everything about a wine in the list view, but want to see everything about the wine when I select one wine from my list.

At least one level of Outlining in Lists. I use this a lot.
For example for travel I have headers for On person, Clothing, Business Supplies, Camping, etc. I can do this with a sortindex column, but having outlining integrated with lists is very nice.

I use locations as locations (work, home, grocery store, hardware store, pet store, etc.) thus when at the grocery store I can see everything I need there. Location is WHERE I am. [I do will a Toodledo location could have multiple map locations).

I use context to indicate the mode of work and equipment I need. Context is WHAT I am doing.

process - generally needs a phone and/or computer (email, surfing, call, write)

putter - things like filing, organizing, sorting, writing

errand - have to make a special trip

chore - I may sweat, something I have to do

tinker - focused working with tools, not a chore

At home (a location) I might shift contexts from chore to putter to tinker based on what I feel like doing.

I use folders to group items by project/subject/event. Folder indicates WHY I am doing something. Notebooks are associated with folders so they need to be specific enough so a notebook makes sense. (Project1, Project2, Work, Home, Family, BigParty, Vacation, Hobby1, Hobby2,...) So in the folder "Project1" I have various notebooks about the project (requirements, deliverables, etc.) Tasks relating to that project are in that folder. In the folder Home (Home is both a location and a project/folder) I have notebooks listing model numbers and serial numbers of appliances, the sizes and part numbers of filters and other replaceables, room & window sizes, paint colors, etc. Work is also both a location and a project - so general work notes and tasks go in the work folder. Notice some work related tasks might need to happen at the location Home. So project, context, and location are all different and used in different ways.

I use Tags to optionally be more specific about a context. I only do this if I may want to sort tasks by the tag/sub-context. For the Process context I have (write, call, email, surf, etc.)

I use status and priority as expected except I use negative priority tasks for items I always want to think about in a certain context or location. Like at the grocery store I always want to think about the few things we go through fast which may not be on the shopping list.

WOW - I am impressed with Toodledo!

I just got an iPhone a month ago and, due to security reasons could not sync my exchange server tasks. I carefully looked at every task management solution and actually paid for several. I had to have context and tags and a great user interface on BOTH windows and iPhone with good syncing. I was quite disappointed until I found Toodledo. It is the only product that met all my needs - then exceeded my expectations with features like locations, notebooks, and subtasks that I had only dreamed about!

You should add your LOCATION support to your comparison chart - it is a wonderful differentiating feature!

I did the free trial of the Pro subscription and was planning to subscribe to Pro - as I don't really need the Pro-Plus features. After using it a few days - you deserve the dough - I will go for the pro-plus! Still a lot cheaper than several of your competitors.

It would be nice if a location name could be associated with multiple map points (Hardware Store=Ace, HomeDepot, Etc.)

I would also like my deleted tasks kept forever - but I plan on exporting them from time to time and putting them in Dropbox as a text file.

Thanks for a great product!

I agree with rtobias for the same reason.
I have maybe 4 hardwares stores, 4 grocery stores, and a few other multi-place locations. I would prefer the location object having more then one pin rather than tasks having a list of location names.
