From Topic: Deleting Tasks



In Account Settings, click on the edit button next to "Fields Used:". Make sure the checkbox next to the "Delete" option is checked.

After returning to your to do list, the last column should be a trash can.

I have had the same issue.

I do not use a Waiting context at all. Instead, I just change the priority to -1. It is certainly not ideal because when I review, I would like to see all my -1 tasks easily.

I have asked for a feature where a context can have a default priority. My Waiting context would be -1. Most everything else would be 0.

My love/hate relationship with Jott continues. I am now using 'git er done' as the jott link for toodledo. It is recognizing it 100% so far. Not only that but I can't help but smile when I saw it.

Posted by SparkGuy:
I use iGTD which thankfully gives me the option between switching between 'natural' (manual) sorting and automatic sorting.

... But when it comes to specific tasks, I REALLY think that not having a manual/sequential way of ordering is a major shortcoming.

Amen to that.

Jott's ability to recognize voice is cool yet tempramental. I now have it as "too do" instead of "two do" and it is helping.

From Topic: subtask



I am making an attempt at using subtasks.

The biggest issue I see so far, after creating only three subtasks under the same task, is that I need them in a strict order. Alphabetical listing doesn't work for me here. I need to be able to order them and no matter how the view is sorted, they should stick to that order.

Dependencies would work wonderfully well for this.

I am running ethernet wiring to a new location in my home. The tasks must be performed in order.
1) Cut drywall hole for remodel box
2) Run ethernet wiring from home run location to the new location
3) Attach ends to wires
4) Connect wires and test.

...it's great because even when on the road, it's possible to just call in additional items for the list. By the time I get home they're waiting to be processed and I haven't forgotten anything.

I agree that this is one of the killer features of Jott. I took a two hour drive last night and while the kids were watching a video in the back with headphones on, I had thinking time. By the time we reached our destination, I had 15 new tasks in Toodledo.

If I create a task using Jott or another one of the outside services OR if I simply forget to include the repeat when I create the task, is there a way to add it later?

UPDATE: Never mind. I wasn't using the 'repeat' field. I (obviously) have not gotten to the point of creating my recurring tasks.

Posted by jwelshjr:
But where you use the term open-ended projects I consider these more as project types, categories, or classes. This is also how I keep work and personal items separated.

I have spent some time thinking about this and I would probably use folders as project categories if subtasks were easier to use.

I am usually using Toodledo from my Windows Mobile 5 device or putting stuff in via Jott and then tweaking them via the mobile interface. Maybe I've missed it but I don't see a way to manage subtasks other than drag and drop from the main, full-featured web site interface. If that is the case, they are too limited for me to use.

LOVE the booklet!

I use it for errands and also to keep my agenda with me. It turns heads when people see me flipping through the tiny booklet.

Even though I do not own Acrobat Pro, I am also curious how others are modding the booklet. I would enjoy current month + next month tiny calendars.

NO JOKE! Great idea putting this down as a tip.

I ended up changing mine to "two do" and that works for me. Initially I had it as "to do" but it would only recognize my saying "tuh do".

Jott is an indispensable tool... a game changer. But it has a LONG way to go to improve on the 80% transcription rates that I am seeing.

From Topic: Goal contributions



The three-tiered approach works great for me currently but I can see how goals can easily become nested folders.

I would really like to hear the reasoning behind the design decision to go with a strict three levels.

That is a great suggestion. I am going to try that.

Thank you for such a quick response.

Found a free utility called WebDesktop for the Macintosh that appears to work in Panther (10.3), Tiger (10.4) and Leopard (10.5). It was created by one of the programmers at Panic software.

It is not as nice as ActiveDesktop but it gets the job done. After running the app, control-click (right-click) on the app icon in the dock and choose "Open URL...". I am using http://www.toodledo.com/slim as my page to view.

You are absolutely correct. I was not thorough in my explanation. The real issue for me is that for the views that I use all of the time, I would like easily accessible links in the left-hand column.

Right now that column contains one large bunch of links that get me to each module of the site. From there, there are usually another set of links/tabs/filters to get to a specific view of the data.

Come to think of it, I am asking for smart folders and for allowing me to put links to them (as well as links to existing views/tabs) in a special section of the left-hand column. My issue is not that it is difficult to get to the different views. It is that I switch between those views all of the time and would like to have that more streamlined.

Inbox: <same as the No Context tab under Context>
Context by Due: <same as the Due Date tab under Context>
Context by Priority: <same as the Priority tab under Context>
Hotlist: <the hotlist>
Errands: show all of the tasks for my three "errands" contexts grouped by context, sorted by context, task name

I, too, would like to know what was between those html tags. Was this a Windows-only tip or does it apply to the Macintosh as well?

From Topic: Inbox



As a heavy user of Jott, I like being able to jott a to do item to Toodledo while in the car or in a store and worry about reviewing it and inevitably fixing transcription errors later.

When I get to the computer and bring up Toodledo, there is no place to go in order to see all of the new tasks that need to be fine-tuned.

For me, the inbox is simply all tasks that do not have a context assigned since I ALWAYS assign a context to tasks. If I read correctly in another topic that smart folders or saved searches are coming, that would solve this problem for me.

Another option would be have a default folder just like we have a default context. Then one of my projects/folders would be Inbox and I could assign it as the default.

Having an "Inbox" as a context, let alone the default context, seems wrong to me.

I am constantly looking for ways to hide tasks that I don't want to see at the moment. Said another way, I only want to be seeing tasks that are relevant.

The GTD concept of Someday/Maybe is great. If I think of a nice-to-have project, I will put it under my Maybe context. I typically do NOT assign priorities when entering tasks since that gets done when I review them. However, I ALWAYS assign a context. In fact, I'd love to have context listed before Folder in the add task panel. Right now, every task gets defaulted to the priority of 0=Low. I would like to assign my Maybe context to a priority of -1.

This could be done fairly easily and the change would be nearly invisible to most users since creating a new context would default the "default priority" to 0=Low.

From Topic: Goals (they ROCK)



When I first saw that Toodledo had something called Goals, I will admit that I thought it was a gimmick. I do understand the power of goals but the thought of having them in a "To Do List" seemed a bit of a stretch.

Boy was I wrong.

It may sound like an overstatement but the implementation of Goals here is changing my life. By that, I mean that it is changing how I prioritize my time during the day. There are certain goals that I assign a MUCH higher priority to (in my mind) than others. This helps me to set task priorities in line with my life priorities.

Most of the time, for me, a short-term goal and a project are one in the same although they answer different questions. "Where am I going?" versus "How to I get there?" For me, many times, there will be a one-to-one relationship between goal and project.

I would love to see Folders have a default goal.

Projects (folders) are used to achieve goals. Almost every task UNDER a project of mine will end up with the same goal AS the project. When selecting a folder via the drop-down box (whether on a new or an existing task)... if that folder has a default goal, change the goal to that default value.

Also, the goal drop-down box is difficult to navigate. As difficult as a hierarchical tree-view selection is to create, it seems like a good solution in this case.

Again, the goals implementation ROCKS. I can hardly wait to see it even more robust.

Toodledo does a great job of helping me understand what to work on first. The "Hotlist" is wonderfully accurate. In fact, many times the hotlist is what I work from. Until I don't.

I usually have errands with a high priority and a due date of today or tomorrow that should not be on my radar while I am working.

There are other tasks that have dependencies that I mentally filter out.

All of this to say that it would be nice for me to be able to flag tasks as being on my "agenda" for the day. These are the tasks that I PLAN on performing during the course of today. There might be tasks due today, tomorrow and next week that are all many different priorities but they are the ones that, for whatever reason, I am choosing to work on today.

Then allow me to print the agenda (flagged tasks) in the booklet and filter for them on all of the different styles of web pages (slim, html, main site).
