Thanks, Salgud. [Johnny Carson]I did not know that.[/Johnny Carson].

I see that Stepan Pachikov is listed as "Founder" here: https://evernote.com/corp/team.php

Maybe Toodledo and Evernote should team up before the IPO ...

Perhaps just words but some very good words from Evernote's founder:
... there comes a time when ... it's more important to improve existing features than to add new ones. More important to make our existing users happier than to just add more new users.

Salgud, are you still using Evernote?

It is difficult (not impossible) for me to understand why anyone would use Notes in Toodledo when something like Evernote is available. Yeah, you might not need to add photos from your smartphone camera, or drag and drop files from your desktop, or annotate those files, or scan and save documents, or clip and save info from websites, or create voice memos, or format text, or add tables and bullet lists, or create stacks and hierarchical tags, or create links among your notes, or add geotags, or encrypt pieces of text, or edit the creation date, or share your notebooks and files with other users, but why give up the powerful search abilities in Evernote?

This renders the Notes tab, the oldest of the add-ons in TD, virtually useless for my, and most, purposes.
You must have missed all the useful hints in the Help section. Oh, wait! There aren't any ... :-\

Toodledo is probably the most powerful online task manager. But (as Jake says), they have a small team, working as hard as they can. There have been very few improvements to Notes in the past five years.

From Topic: Attachments

Some websites allow you to view some types of files within your browser, e.g. Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Box and Evernote all let you view your photos and pdf files. This is because those websites have a "viewer" that can display those types of files within your browser. For various other types of files, you have to download and save the file first and then open it in whatever software was used to create it.

Toodledo does not have a viewer.

Search for "task dependency" in the forums and you'll find several topics, some from 2008.

Here's a long discussion that started on January 1, 2011:

This has been discussed by many people and promised for many years. I do hope it will finally happen.

Would love to see dependencies on tasks -- specifically if the "waiting" status could be tripped to "next action" once it's dependent task(s) are done!

Kent, Jake's instructions are for the toodledo.com website.
Jake, Kent has posted two images that demonstrate that he is using the Mac Menu Bar App.

Sometimes it seems that Jake fails the Turing test ...

Anyway, if there was a URL, he would have told you what it is. There isn't, so now your question has become a suggestion for a new feature.

This makes a lot of sense in the Saved Searches.

And it is useful in Main view:
"All tasks" sorted Alphabetically, or perhaps by Date Added.
Hotlist sorted by Importance or Priority, along with something like Due Date, Start Date or Star.
Recently Added, Recently Modified, Recently Completed sorted by the corresponding field.

Yes, it is still not available.

And this breaking news is just in: Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

You can reschedule the task for the next occurrence.

You can complete the task and then delete the completed task. The next instance of the recurring task will still exist.

Time to dig out this comment by Steve Jobs from about 10 years ago:
Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like... People think it's this veneer -- that the designers are handed this box and told, 'Make it look good!' That's not what we think design is. It's not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
From: The Guts of a New Machine.

Unfortunately, not even Apple has been able to design an elegant task manager that matches the capabilities of Toodledo.

FWIW, I think that Jake's real strength is in creating and updating the Toodledo API. Several software developers have used it create apps that sync with Toodledo, including one of the apps mentioned in the Lifehacker blog -- Appigo's Todo, which was the first mobile app to sync with Toodledo.

The way that the those fields get filled in is by hand, by me. This means when we get a new customer it takes me about an hour or so - depending on relative complexity - to set up their task list. This seems horrendously inefficient.
It is inefficient because you are using the wrong tool for the job. Take a look at Customer Relationship Management software (CRM).

At a more basic level, you need software that merges data. You can use something like Excel, Word and Outlook to do that, or you can use Gmail and Google Docs. You can then create email messages that have some formatting rather than just plain text. Merging on a mobile device would be difficult, but not impossible.

From Topic: Groups of Folders

Antonio, it seems that you want the ability to specify contains, doesn't contain, begins with, ends with when searching by Folder.

Right now, the only options are "is" and "is not".

Well, according to Jake:
This is something that is on our to-do list, but the main purpose of this idea is to save 2-6 mouse clicks.

Obviously not important enough.
