Also, can the list be in alpha order -- it would be easier to find.
Thanks.
I agree with this. Alpha list plus size of font determined by number of tasks.

"check all" and "uncheck all" buttons have already been added to our development build, and it is working good. It will be in the next update.


I hope this is a short term solution to fixing the filtering to work as discussed above.

You click on @Call = I only want to see task with this Context.

If you click on @Call and @Work = I only want to see task with both of these context.

simple
Me too. Just because every other program works the way Proximo says. But I'm willing to give the check/uncheck all a try. Can you tell us when we can expect the next update?

It is very nice. I will love the auto-complete when it's ready. Maybe that will satisfy the alpha-list and keyboard only people. I do think I will prefer your cloud implementation.

Nice job. Thanks. I think this was a big step.

I agree with Proximo. It seems more natural to select contexts I want vs. contexts I don't want. Ditto for tags. Your logic seems fine, but I prefer illogic for this because it will save me time.

I would be fine with a "check all", "uncheck all" button as a compromise.

Posted by Toodledo:
On the iPhone, repeating tasks will appear immediately below the completed task if you have "sync on edit" enabled. If the filters would have hidden that task, then you will need to refresh the list. If you don't like this, you can turn "sync on edit" off.
I like the security of "sync on edit" but I don't like the behavior of the new repeating task appearing in the filtered view. Unless you or someone can explain why this would be desired, I would like to suggest that the view auto-refreshes so the new task doesn't show. Right now, it's an annoyance for me.

thpope,

Thanks for mention this bug. After investigation, it appears that the "Beep Beep" sound was not being sent properly. The other sounds were working fine. It has been fixed, so the next reminder you receive should get the "Beep Beep" sound :)


Yes, I can confirm it's working. Thanks!

I can't seem to get the push sound to change from the iphone's default text message tri-tone. Is anyone else having this problem?

That's funny. I was thinking about this just the other day.

I really think you may be on to something. There is a saying that goes something like "There may be nothing on his desk, but there's nothing in his mind either" or "empty desk and empty brain." Something like that.

It may be tempting to achieve a clutter-free mind, to eliminate stress, but I don't think one should make that an ideal. We do need some clutter, just like we need some fat. I guess it's a balance. I need clutter for creativity. But too much will definitely be harmful and end up stifling creativity.

It syncs with Toodledo.

I want toodledo to hide tasks that can't be done until something else happens. I think that's the real point of task dependencies. For example, I must put on my socks before my shoes. So I should only see Put On Socks, and when I complete that, I only see Put On Shoes.

Btw, I was checking out nowdothis.com and really like the whole idea of pushing one thing at a time. This is such a simply concept, that I would love to see Toodledo add it.

I like all of these.

1. On-the-fly creation of folders is very important.
2. Multimedia notes would be fantastic.
3. Task dependencies or parent-child relationships, also would be great.
4. You can go to the All Tasks list and do this now, which I'm ok with, but I'd very much like to search every field.
5. Custom sort lists would be great. I'd expand that to Custom Views, or extend the advanced search to save more than the search, i.e. sorting and filtering.

It works if you turn off sync, then create the repeating task. But I think most people would expect (and prefer) the task to repeat whenever sync'ing is off or the device is out of range for sync'ing. That's probably tricky to get right for them.

What's bugging me is when I check off a repeating task, I see the new repeat right under what I checked off. I want it show up in the list based on sort.

From Topic: Alarm WHEN DUE



I agree.

I have to set the task to 19 minutes later if I want the notification to show up right on time. I know there is no guarantee that the reminder comes up right when you tell it to, but it's always been 19 minutes for 15 minute reminder. It's been dead on every time. I think maybe Toodledo must be sending it out 4 minutes early and Apple is doing a better job than expected sending it to us.

This is why we need a better Multi-Line mode.

I think we should have the ability to put which fields show up while collapsed on the single line and then show all of the fields we're using when we expand. I'm sure this has been requested, so, sorry for being repetitive.

I would love to know which new features you guys (Toodledo) have prioritized for implementing next. (You probably won't reveal that to us.)

Have you ever thought of putting a poll together with the top features listed and having us select the top 1, 2, or 3 that are most essential to us users? I think it would be good for your development roadmap. If you do this, then I suggest you ask the length of time we've been using Toodledo and/or other to-do package. That would help you understand the difference between opinions based on maturity of usage.

You're welcome in advance for my suggestions. ;)

I'd go with Toodledo because it's so cheap and will do most of what you expect. PI is not worth buying now, imo (I do own it). 1.1 might be better. Appigo is very nice and seems very complete, except I don't think it can do stars, and I don't like the way Focus works. It's almost there. You can try the "lite" version for free.

I personally would say Appigo has the best Todo app out there. I've almost bought it several times, just to pull back and decide Toodledo can do most of what I want, so why waste the money. Toodledo is the best "bang for buck."

I'm using the built in calendar with google sync. I'm about 80% happy with my setup. I used PI on pocket pc years ago and had a great method for doing task management. I loved the integration with the calendar. I had fantastic custom views and dragging todo's into my calendar. I really miss that. iPhone has been solid to use, but it's frustrating waiting for features you'd think would be there, like integration with their calendar app.

My suggested alternatives to replace them:

--A green checkmark in place of thumbs up for "Flag as Interesting or Useful"

-- A red flag in place of thumbs down for "Flag as Inappropriate or Spam"

Any thoughts about this?


This suggestions seems more appropriate to me (and probably the original intent of Toodledo).
agree. I thought the thumbs up was more for "I like this suggestion" but it doesn't seem like that at all. And I certainly didn't realize the thumbs down would hide a post as inappropriate.

I am truly frustrated with the forums because it takes me way too long to find responses to my posts. I think it's time for Toodledo to get a regular forum. I know they have their reasons, but this is simply unmanageable.

Regarding the Moderator, someone really needs to reign that guy in. I mean, he's more like a tyrant and one of the meanest guys I've ever seen. ;) (just kidding)

@The Pope, I don't understand why PI does that. They are working with the same API as all the other apps that sync with Toodledo, and those guys are seasoned veterans of that kind of app. It doesn't seem to be a common thing, but you rarely hear of other apps having any sync issues at all.
It happened when it was first released and I believe it was because of repeating tasks and "optionally on" tasks (which I will reiterate that I think it's a bad idea to delete tasks automatically). They may have fixed it, but I'm not going to take the chance until maybe 1.1. I have a lot of history with things syncing poorly causing dupes and deletions from way back using Active Stink and my ppc. It's not fun to deal with and with the big screw-ups, you never know for sure that you've gotten back the lost data.

I believe it gives you a number of tasks where their estimated length *totals* to under your specified time frame. So, if you say 30 minutes, it grabs tasks that add up to 30 minutes or less.

It sounds like you were expecting it to give you all of the tasks that are equal to or less than what you specified. You could probably use the advanced search feature to get that.

Posted by Toodledo:
You could look into using optional due-dates with a repeat value. If the due-date passes, it will be automatically moved forward by whatever interval you specify. I do this for certain tasks that I would like to do (like go to the gym) but which I sometimes skip. In fact, I often don't even check off "go to gym" even if I do it because I now it will automatically repeat for me at midnight.

Thanks for the suggestion. I do that now for my non-urgent repeating tasks. But I do have several tasks that are not repeating, not urgent, but are important. Or they have a long time period between repeating.

The only way I handle these now is manually moving the due dates. I guess I'm wanting Toodledo to help manage these more automatically. You know, having custom filters, similar to email filters, would be great. This would be like creating a custom search and applying an action to it using multi-edit, but it all happens automatically. Such as, if I searched for all tasks due today in my work folder, then set the status to all of those as Next Action (I remember someone already requested that). The difference is that Toodledo does this automatically for me in the background.

I did recently upgrade to the latest iPhone app - though I don't know if that corresponds to when this problem started to occur.
The Toodledo iPhone app or something different? I've had problems with 3rd party iPhone todo apps creating dupes when syncing with Toodledo, specifically with Pocket Informant.
