I have been paying my PRO Subscription for several years (at least 3) and have requested some dependency in tasks. I have basically been fumbling without computer support for tasking because the dependency between tasks is so important that I don't want to get involved in a solution without knowing it can approximate my needs.

I came back to check (again) on previous forum postings and find they are locked due to age, and don't even show up in the search capability of the forum.

For those who wish to read them, I think these URLs will work...

I haven't tested this lately, but there was something that toodledoo did recently to support cross domain scripting that might have an impact on your effort. The Toodledo Firefox extension is written in Javascript, but it is served from toodledoo's own server so it doesn't have to worry about cross domain scripting.

and the tab was "eaten" too. So this isn't just the "internet" that is responsible. This is a choice that the toodledoo forum developers have made to limit what can be put on a reply. I expect it makes it hard for folks who want to use entities that are not ASCII, as explained on this page:

one entity is this skull and crossbones :& # 9 7 6 0 ; ☠

Curious, so my experiment failed. It pulled all the spaces out between the marks, and as soon as the web form saw the & in the entity for non-breaking space ( & n b s p ; ) but run together, the software cut the reply off.
So I am not going to put another one in, but will try to cut-and-paste a tab to see what it does:

#3 line with a tab between marks | |

You can get a tab into a form, you just have to "cut-and-paste it". You can't type it in, because the web browser sees the key that is a tab and does something with it.
Is there a way to replace spaces (or tabs) with non-breaking spaces? those are supposed to be respected by Web browsers.

As an experiment

#1 line with 7 spaces between marks: | |
#2 line with 7 non-breaking spaces between marks: |

By the way, Keef is busy, so I will help by reminding.
In the future, could you please post Outlook sync client issues in the Third party forum at http://www.toodledo.com/forums/8/0/third-party-applications.html ? The Toodledo admins have asked us to stop using the developer forum for outlook sync client support. The developer forum is for questions from developers about the Toodledoo API, not for support of client applications that use the API to deliver services to end users.

You said the "only problem for me: gettin the xml-file in order to access the data."

Could you elaborate on this please? To my knowledge, every toodledo API call returns XML, which you could put into a file.

It is not clear what you need.

Just a vote to have the completion date editable.
Since I can't edit it, I have a tendency not to check things off,
which means I can't trust the data in Toodledo for reports, trends, etc.
I want Toodledo to be the web-based task-manager of choice, since it is generally so useful.

I don't know why, but I can't follow the above link.
(even though I cut it out of my browser). I'll try to find a better link to the other discussion.

I stand by my statement that it isn't obvious how to map a mind-map to a to-do list. Yes, a mind-map can be converted relatively easily to an outline. But Toodledo doesn't let you manipulate outlines, it lets you manipulate to-do lists.

For example, if I had a mind-map/outline such as:

Visit Santa Claus
* Wake up kids
* Get kids ready
* * change out of pajamas
* * feed them breakfast
* * get kids in car
* Go to Santa's Workshop
* Stand in line
* Let each kid See Santa

It is pretty obvious how create a mind-map out of this.

But should this be one to-do list item with the details in a note?
Should this be one to-do list with subtasks?
How do you handle the sub-sub-items, (since Toodledo doesn't support sub-sub-tasks) ?
Maybe a folder named "Visit Santa Claus" should be created? with tasks for each item and sub-tasks under each item?

What priority, start-time, etc, should be attached to each task that you make? What about folders and contexts?

I think the idea of creating a mapping from mind-maps to toodledo items is a great idea, it just needs to have more details before it can be done.

What kind of interface do you want ToodleDo to provide?

While the name of these products include the word "Mind", there
is no obvious way to map a mind-map to a to-do list.

It is always easier to create something if you know what you need to make.

From Topic: Reporting Application

I have been trying to find a way to have the possibility of installing some javascript files of my own which is served by the same toodledo.com servers that provide the API. As mattsez has noted, and as I noted previously, the inability to do cross-domain scripting in javascript server means that it is impossible to use the (excellent) Toodledo REST APIs from our own code.

I had thought that I could be clever and use the Files capability to put a .js file up there, or a .htm file that would be able to use XMLHttpRequest to use the REST APIs.

This would let me use code in a file that would be uploaded
{{script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.toodledo.com/file_download.php?file=MyCode.js"}}

The problem I have with that is the links that are created from the
http://www.toodledo.com/files.php interface always marks the downloaded files as only one type:

I get messages like:

you have chosen to open Myfile.html
which is a: Jscript Script File
from http://userdata.toodledo.com

What should Firefox do with this file?

It is true that opening with Firefox is one of the choices,
but what it does is download the file first, and start up Firefox on the copy, not on the original data it got from toodledo.
and of course, then FireFox refuses to allow for the XMLHttpRequest because the local hard disk is not the same place as the place the API is on.

The error I get (on the Error Console) is:

Security Error: Content at file:///C:/MySTUFF.html may not load data from http://www.toodledo.com/api.php?URL=getToken;userid=tdxxxxxxxxx.

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Access to restricted URI denied" code: "1012" nsresult: "0x805303f4 (NS_ERROR_DOM_BAD_URI)" location: "http://www.toodledo.com/file_download.php?file=Code.js Line: 294"]

So, I would like a suggestion on what to do next.

Note, I have not tried to use the notebook to provide this capability yet, but am a bit discouraged. Could it work?

My current theory is that perhaps if the download pages gave a different MIME then it would work?

I believe it is at


but I actually don't use it. (I found it on one of the other pages on the website)

From Topic: Blackberry Support

To help the developers, could you be SPECIFIC, and tell them exactly which screens in Opera Mini WORK and which ones DON'T WORK.

It's possible that the "jumbled mess" only occurs when using Opera Mini on the Blackberry, which means they don't know even what to fix.

Not owning a Blackberry, nor having used Opera Mini, I'm just trying to help you do what you can to make it easier for the developers to give you what you want.

From Topic: Goosync Integration

What would it take to convert the XML that the API gives you into the SyncML that GooSync requires?

Is this something you can do using XSLT on a Javascript application?
If so, you don't need our great developers at Toodledo to do it for you.

Hmmm. maybe if we get seriously into code it would be better to do this thread on Developers.

Is there a way to move a question answer thread to a different topic?
That would be a useful thing.

The "Multi-edit" feature is nice, but there is also the "classic" view which does allow you to handle multiple tasks at a time, and do things to them "together". It probably is close to what CosmosMarinerDU wants.
And the good news is that it already exists!

Another post discussing more user interface issues is at

hopefully this will help us decide what we want
and figure out how to do it.

I wrote up some stuff about dependencies at the forum message

could you please review and tell me if my ideas are hot water or just all washed up?

It would be useful to know what tasks are using files when you are in the Manage Files page. There is an option to delete the files, but you don't know what the impact will be if you can't see which tasks are using the files...

There is a paperclip that you click on.
I think you have to pay for the ability to attach files to tasks.
