it seems that the daily reminder email do not contain subtasks, i.e. the send task list is different from the hotlist (or is there some setting that I could not find?). Is it possible to receive important subtasks in the daily reminder email as well?

URLs appearing in the first line of an unexpanded task note are automatically recognized and converted to links. This is pretty convenient.

My question: would it be possible to also recognize urls starting with "message://" like


and provide as links in the unexpanded text note of a task?

Reason is: clicking such a link for example in a webbrowser on the Mac (from some 10.4.x version on) opens the email with this (unique) message-id in Apple Mail program. Maybe it's also working for other webbrowsers or mail clients...

Anyway, it would be a very convenient way to link emails to toodledo notes directly, at least for some users.

Actually it does not need much to promote the development of flash applications that can access toodledo data - it is essentially the above-named file crossdomain.xml. Some examples of websites that have kind of "open" content access for flash:


Other sites are more dedicated to special domains:


There are some security issues, of course. I think they are not much higher than for the general API provided by toodledo for example - but it has to be taken into account.

So, my question is very simple: would it be it possible to provide a file


like the above, or at least with some specific entries like

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
<allow-access-from domain="*.chumby.com" />

Just to mention, I am not a professional flash developper, but making a widget to display toodledo data does not seem very hard, thanks to the convenient API.

one of the (really) nice things on toodledo is, of course, the open API and the interfacing to many other web services or "representations". My concern is about a possible expansion of the API that would allow for flash widgets development as well.

Recent versions of the flash player lite (e.g. for mobile devices, the WII, or, what is the main reason for my post here, the chumby) have security restrictions on accessing external data (incl. urls). This is regulated by a file crossdomain.xml that has to be located in the root path of the server, which provides the data to the widget.

So, for making a flash widget, which can access the toodledo API, such a file would also be needed to be installed in the root path of toodledo.com, and also allowing access from anyone. I know that there might be clear and understandable concerns about such a solution (but seems twitter, flickr, yahoo etc. do it like this)...

So, my question, is there any plan for such a flash development support, or are there any general objections against it?

(actually it should be noted that the problem can also be handled by setting up one's own proxy, but this is a rather inconvenient approach).
