+1 what he said! And if he's paying to shut it down my money's on the table too.

Posted by JPR:
I would pay to see this monstrosity of a thread locked down and put out of it's misery... although it has been a great place for people to make meaninglessly broad requests like "fix the GUI". (To be fair, there has been some substantive discussion here too.)

This thing is well over 2 years old, and take a guess how many times the person who hires UI designers has posted here? (Hint: it's less than one) If there is something you don't like, start a new thread... be specific about what you don't like and maybe suggest how you think it should be changed.

Your idea will get put on the list, and then you'll have something to reference later on when your brilliant idea hasn't been implemented as fast as you want it. And please, please don't title your post: "Please hire a UI Designer". Shockingly, this phrasing has not been persuasive.

And as Jake is clearly too modest to nag, it is nice when you go to iTunes for the update to say something nice about Toodledo

If Toodledo helps you be more productive, please consider giving us a rating/review in the iTunes App Store. Even if you have rated us before, you can rate us again with each new update that we release. It really does help us to have good ratings.

There are many users on these forum who will tell you all the reasons they gave up on RTM and how TD is so much better. I am one of them. Many would agree that the key to productivity is finding a system that works for the individual. I think it's odd that someone who teaches productivity would boycott one system over another. TD has so many advantages over RTM mainly because of the flexibility it allows even though that requires a degree of involvement from the user. Also, your sign off of 'Otherwise, great app' leads me to assume that you use it and like it. Even more confusing.

Did you know you can email your tasks in to Toodledo? Set up your special TD email address as a contact. There is also quite a lot chat in these forums regarding recent improvements to the syntax you can add to automate tasks added by email. Personally, I simply have them set to go to a folder called INBOX that I organise periodically.

I'm pleased that worked for you but I'm curious, why would you need a task to disappear without you having to mark it complete?

From Topic: indentation in notes



It's a pity that Notes hasn't kept up with the rest of the app's development. There are some great notes apps out there now but it would be so much better to have them integrated. Meanwhile, if you're looking for indented notes, try Workflowy, it's pretty good.

What is an optional task?


You can set a due date for your task to be Optional, look in the Help files under Due Dates (https://www.toodledo.com/info/help.php?sel=42). If you're saying that the task doesn't actually have to be marked as done, it just needs to appear then disappear, this could do it for you.

Wouldn't a search do it? How about:

Repeat : is : None
And
Checked off : Yes

Which ought to find non repeating, completed tasks.

Where is the support people for this forum? I submitted the same error message via email last week as what appears in this thread.

Hello, Support people, hello ...


I think you'll find that support on this Third Party forum is expected to come from the individual app developer. You might have more luck on PI's forum. I see that Alex, PI's owner, last posted here on 15th Nov.

Would it be better if we said "We won't comment...". It seems nicer to say "can't".
Perhaps it is nicer but it is not true.
See: http://www.toodledo.com/forums/2/14224/-69032/read.html

You could say "Thanks, we've added your request to our list for future consideration" and then quote your own words -- "It is our policy to keep our roadmap a secret and we generally do not comment on release dates for feature improvements" -- or provide a link to the quote.


Actually, I believe that your suggestion is on the to-do list but its not possible to comment on a date for implementation :-)

OK, thanks for an honest reply.
Looks as if it wont be soon :-((

Martin.


I would add that over the years, I have tried a number of other systems, mainly through curiosity, including GQueues and Producteev. Both of these are much better than Toodledo when it comes to Google integration. Problem is, on every other measure, they're just not as good. The thing with Toodledo is that it's so flexible and doesn't force you into a specific way of working. It's totally reliable and continuously developed. I seem to get restless once in a while and go looking for 'better systems'. All that does is to reinforce that there isn't one.

From Topic: Buying Pro Version



I don't know the answer to that, I never let it end ;) I usually have a year or two in hand. Over the years I have come to completely rely on Toodledo and it has never let me down. Nor, with all the many questions and problems on this forum have I have heard of someone losing data. So, once it becomes your main, trusted repository, it makes sense to me to commit and pay a year or two up front.
On a slightly different note, as you start using it I would offer one bit of advice. There are many alternatives to Toodledo out there but the USP with TD is that it almost doesn't have a system. Instead it is incredibly flexible, allowing the user to mould it to suit. This can be daunting at first. It's usually safe to assume that as your personal system develops and you require more features, they are in there somewhere or someone here has a workaround. Many of the people on this forum are aware of or have tried other products, myself included. I always end up back with Toodledo.

From my own experience as a long term user you will never doubt that Toodledo is amazingly good value. In terms of support and reliability alone if it doubled in price it would still be cheap. Clearly, I don't speak for the company but it would seem like a pretty dangerous business model to fix your price forever.

Just wondering which bit of this relates to Toodledo?

From Topic: A Bug and a request



Actually no, that's not what I meant. I would like only tasks that have specific times to show up in my calendar, not just dates. So, if I have to do something next Tuesday I don't want to see it. But if I have to do it next Tuesday at 11:00 then I do want to see it. And, unless I'm mistaken, that's not currently possible.

Huh, I thought I knew most of TD's tricks but there's a new one. That's exactly what I need, thanks.

Posted by Salgud:
@simon

You indicated you backed up after PI had apparently deleted your data. I was thinking that maybe you had backed up prior to this and forgot. Or something. Apparently not.

I suggest what once you're up and running again, you add a task to back up your TD regularly.


I'm ahead of you, already done!

From Topic: All data gone!!



Posted by Salgud:
So I'm guessing you haven't been doing any regular backups before this happened?

Salgud I think you missed the point. I did a backup, did the restore, still no data

It seems that your tasks are in your backup file but you're having a problem restoring the data.
Is the backup file XML or CSV? What do you see when you open the file on your computer?

Purveyor thanks, that's how it appeared, however...
I realised that the data that appeared to be in the backup file was in fact old, completed tasks that were stored so actually, my data had been wiped. Meanwhile I did have a fairly recent backup (just a few days) so not too much damage done and a lesson reinforced.

Note: Salgud, when someone says on this forum 'I've lost my data' the last thing he needs is 'You should've backed up' ;-)

From Topic: All data gone!!



Oh dear, big disaster!
I decided to give Pocket Informant another try and somehow, whilst fiddling with some settings, I wiped all the data from my Toodledo account. I went straight to TD and made a backup and that file appeared to contain data. I tried restoring from that file but, although the pop up info window showed that the file contained 600+ tasks, etc., the restoration hasn't worked. I still have no tasks.
I have also submitted a support ticket but, any help would be gratefully received. Thanks.

1) Thanks, that fixed it. Need to refresh the page each morning.

2) Sorry, I wasn't clear. I'm talking about iCal sync (in my case with Google). The only tasks I want to show up are the ones with specific times but all the tasks with dates and no times fill the 'all day event' space. On the iPhone that often takes up most of the screen.
