From Topic: Postponing tasks
Have you considered creating a generic repeating task, and listing the specific tasks on the note?
For example, I could create a repeating task that says "Task for Status Report," and list these actions in the note.

If you need to keep track of what task you're on, you could mark an X for tasks you've finished (or delete them if you won't need to reuse them later).
Every day you'd get a tickler that says "Task for Status Report," and you'd just have to go into the Notes section to see which task you need to do. A delay in the first item delays all the subsequent items by default.
Another option is the way I do it. I put the first specific task name into the task name field. When I'm done with that specific task, I don't mark it done, I just change the task name in Toodledo to the next item on the list and change the due date accordingly. I know not to close it because I always check any existing notes before closing a task.
Or, something I've been trying for the last week or so because I still spent too much time postpoining tasks... I just let them go overdue. I put that date on there for a reason, and I shouldn't be trying to cover that up unless something has changed or I made a mistake (in which case I do change the date). My reminder list is everything with an importance level of 7 or above, but you could look at things overdue or due today just as easy.

This seems to be what "optionally on" is intended to do.

From Topic: Find out when I entered a task?
It shows up when you hover your mouse over the check-off box on the web site.
I'm not sure how to see it from other platforms, however.

From Topic: Possible improvements and new features
The biggest things I'm looking for are all around the scheduler.
I would like to have some control over what the scheduler selects. I often rely on the scheduler when I'm feeling very non-motivated, but I also often have to keep extending the time selected to display something from the right list (ie I enter 2.5 hours when I only have 1 hour free because the first 1.5 hours TD selects are all low-priority stuff I don't have time to do today). At the very least, it would be nice to have an "ignore" setting I could set so the scheduler won't keep presenting the items I've already decided I can't do today.
Some way to set my own default for the parameters for the scheduler, or use the last settings, instead of constantly going back to all contexts and one hour.
Let the scheduler schedule multi-blocks. I'd love to say I have three blocks of time. One 1 hour, one 1.5 hours, and one 3 hour, and have it schedule the whole day.
In an ideal world, I'd love to have a way to look at all my tasks and their due dates -- including future starts, tell TD how much time I have to work on the current task list each day (and let me say I have 3 hours on Monday and 2 on Tuesday), and have it calculate whether or not I'll have time to finish everything during the week. That way, it would help me figure out how much overtime I'm going to have to put in to meet my committments.
