From Topic: Newbie questions



I echo what Andrew said though I use folders differently. For me folders are my per client view (one folder for each client). I then use the parent task=project perspective for managing projects within each client folder.

I don't think the existing method is not useful but I do think it could be improved. Specifically I'd love to see integration w/ Dropbox so that I can have all of my files in one spot.

+95, please. Been waiting for this for over a year.

Sounds like a great update! I was wondering that that new Locations area was when I logged in this morning. Thanks for the hard work!

I think you have a valid question...particularly with the moderating. I know I would certainly be willing to be on a team of mods for free.

That said, Many of us enjoy Toodledo exactly how it is. If you look through the news forum you will see MANY improvements have been made including an impressive back-end server move.

I doubt anyone will e-mail you when "real" improvement takes place. Improvement is in the eye of the beholder.

I missed that optional part...sorry for the semi-un-needed post.

I check my Inbox twice a day...don't really pay attention to the task count. I consider this my way of controlling the tasks rather than the tasks controlling me. ;-)

Please do not implement this request or at least make it user configurable. I do not use folders for my personal tasks so this would make a mess of my Inbox.

First official request to have this thread locked by Toodledo.

I'd also like a way to block certain user's posts from my view. Quite sick of seeing negative, non-productive crud.

Thanks in advance...

This is actually due to a well known bug in Chrome with drop-down lists. It has been mentioned elsewhere on the forums and I believe Toodledo is currently waiting for Google to fix the bug.

Look towards the top of your list...you should see a "Filter" area that you can click.

You have to setup syncing on the iPad. Within the Toodledo app go to settings->sync.

Are you sure your iPhone is sync'd to the website? You might try going into settings->sync and performing a manual sync. They should then update properly.

Thanks TheGriff, I'm not sure I see any difference in your method from what I was going to set up. A Client is basically a Project in our business so using a Folder for a Project would be the same as a Client no? Not sure I understand. Can you clarify? Also, the folders down the side would be no big deal. The sharing and delegating is where I can't see how multiple folders will work for a small business with many projects going on at once.


You have it exactly. For you a Project is a client. Each Project will then have smaller sub-projects (i.e. prewire) and then each sub-project will have tasks (i.e. repair wire).

It can get complex when you have many folders that you have to view. Once you've taken up the space along the top of your screen, folders will begin to populate a drop-down style menu to the right of the last displayable folder. Some people find this to be an issue.

I tend to reserve tags for information that helps to describe a task. For example on an Agenda task I might put the name of the person I need to talk to as the tag. I also use tags to track my billable vs. non-billable time.

In your case I might use the tag to indicate who is responsible for the task.

I strongly encourage using my approach...of course I am biased but I think you'll find it simplest in the long run. ;-)

So I guess I see that you need to organize two different levels of "Projects". On the one hand you consider each home a project but I am sure each of those homes has many different projects that need completing.

As a consultant I use Folders to keep track of my clients. Then within those folders I use tasks as my projects and subtasks as items to complete those projects.

I might suggest thinking of each individual house as a client and then using tasks as projects for each of those clients/houses.

You must go into each note to be moved, edit the note and then choose the correct folder from the drop down. Don't forget to then save the edit.

Go to the main view->folder and then select the folder. You'll likely have to click on 'Filter' and choose 'Show completed tasks'.

I don't think a 3 employee company has to be that secretive about what they're working on.

No matter how many feature is being added to Toodledo, if step #1 (the user interface) is broken it will get rejected by most people.
Toodledo is the very opposite of how apple OS attract customers yet it put lots of energy targeting the iPhone users.


I've been keeping quiet for a while now but it's finally time to ask you why you continue to use Toodledo. Just about every post you make is negative. I think everyone who reads these forums understands you feel the user interface is broken and in need of a redesign. While I agree that'd be nice I have NO problems keeping track of my entire day including multiple clients within Toodledo.

While I am all for providing feedback I would hope you might back off just a bit. Your concerns have been heard and repeating them just serves to be annoying to me and I would bet a bunch of other people in this forum.

That said, congrats to Jake and Toodledo! Third place isn't bad but it's good that you still have progress to make. Maybe next year you'll be number 1!

It's a good idea but I'd need this configurable. I don't want to check off any parent task (use them as projects) before reviewing that task to ensure it really is complete.
TheGriff

Posted: Jun 23, 2010



I've seen a few feature requests kicking around for various ways to help people know what the parent task is for any subtask.

What I'd like to see is a hove method put into place. In my mind it'd be nice if one could hover over the subtask icon and the name of its parent task would show in the hover area.

This reduces the need for additional screen real estate needed by other requests while still allowing one to quickly put any subtask "into context".
