I have set up a repeating task for every Saturday to back up my ToodleDo account. I use the back up files (which are XML) as input to some Python scripts for additonal reporting.

Jake,

Thank you for the clarification. I will build a look up table based on the task titles which have a non-empty <repeat> tag.

I have written a Python script to read the ToodleDo backup XML file, and create some statistics on my productivity.

My question is how can I find the active repeating task which is associated with the completed tasks? For example, I have a task that repeats daily "Do workout on rowing machine". When I complete the task, a new task id is created with the date completed information.

Examining the XML file I can't see how this completed task can be linked to the active task which generated it. How does the "chain" method work with goals? How do you connect these tasks?

Thanks
Charles

Adding tasks works for me - IPhone 5.

I was hoping that that the date added, date modified and date completed Unix timestamp fields in Tasks would include the time - at least to the hour and minute resolution.

Would it be possible to do this?

The API documentation says "added : A GMT unix timestamp for when the task was added. Toodledo does not track the time that a task was added, so tasks will always appear to be added at noon."

Why doesnt Toodledo track the time?


Thanks
Charles

From Topic: New Section: Outlines



This is a great feature! Will you be adding the outlines to the iPhone app? It would be great to view/edit/create outlines on the iPhone.

clason - there is a tag in the tasks section of the XML: date_added. This is the field you want.

I have written a Python script to read the XML backup file and export the task information. Let me know if you would like a copy of this script.

Thanks! I should be able to easily convert using the Python
datetime module:

import datetime
print(datetime.datetime.fromtimestamp(int("1284101485")).strftime('%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'))

Hello,

I would like to parse the Backup XML to produce some special reports, but I don't know how the dates can be decoded.

For example:
<export_date>1366696711</export_date>
<duedate>1366632000</duedate>

How can I convert this number into YY, MM, DD and possibly HH and MM if I have enabled using times?

Thanks,
Charles
