>>>>>gSyncit does not sync Rich Text Format.

Okay, so that's what I said, " I use gsyncit and Dave said he's ready to alter his software to allow for rich text"

Your point?

Yes you're correct on the sync component. I use gsyncit and Dave said he's ready to alter his software to allow for rich text (or whatever format) once Toodledo makes their move. Until then he continues to use plain text.

I was fairly certain that the advanced feature sets would involve $. I was just curious if you had devised some ultra clever way to avoid the loss of such feature sets when travelling between platforms.

Since my primary, everyday and heavy usage of tasks is in Outlook on the desktop, any features above which Outlook will not support may be nice but are not useful since the sync back to Outlook would strip them out.

An example--

In some OL tasks I use Indents, Bold, Underline and Tables for data clarification (I've told OL to use Word as the editor). These are all stripped out when I sync and open the particular task on the iPhone. Thus, I 'know' either to limit rich text for a task that I likely would want to open on the phone or not to open certain tasks on the phone.

FWIW, I know that the admin had mentioned that rich text support was on their do list. I could see myself paying for the service if iPhone tasks remained intact.

I received an email suggesting that I might want to use the additive features of Toodledo vs. just the sync ability with Outlook/iPhone that I currently use.

An example in the email was "use subtasks and attach files to tasks".

So the question is: If I were to use the preceding abilities with some of my tasks on the website or on the iPhone then wouldn't those added features be stripped out as soon I synced back to my desktop Outlook?

The title is short and okay.

I'm referring to the 'tap to add note' edit area.

This is a 2 part question.

First, I generate a task in MS Outlook, sync to the website, sync to the iPhone. The text area of the task is, in this instance, 2,859 characters (spaces not counted). I edit the text on the iPhone and save it and confirm after saving that the edit is still present. After syncing, the edit does not show up in Outlook. Is this a bug or am I surpassing your software's character limit?

Second, assuming I'm no where near your limit, I tried to see if the problem was your website or my 'Outlook--to your website' sync software (Gsyncit). However, I cannot figure out how to open a task on the website?

I created a ticket. I clicked 'create ticket', the browser indicated the page was refreshed but the 'create ticket' page remained absent confirmation. I clicked the button 2 more times with the same result. If you get 3 posts this is why. If you get no post this is why.

Kindly let me know if you have received the report.

iOS7--

FYI--

Whether start sync is on or off--(recently) whether WiFi service is good, not so good or unavailable, ~50% of the time during a day, the blank screen (grey background with tiny boxes, is present for ~8 seconds before the database loads.

FWIW, the condition I expressed in this thread has disappeared, whether by coincidence or reason, post upgrade to iOS 7.

Tasks are edited either device or Outlook--never website. What u describe is possible but, IMHO, improbable--at least for my condition. The device was synced numerous times between time change and bad alarm. I'll come back if the problem reoccurs--

Thanks--

I know you all are looking into some instances of tasks with alarms invoking odd behavior.

Though I've run into the following problem on and off over the past month or 2, it wasn't until today that I could say with certainty that I've confirmed an instance of a wayward task alarm.

The task is Costco. It is originated on my desktop Outlook and sync'd to you using Gsyncit. The Task had initially been set for today, Tuesday. I changed the due date from Tuesday to Thursday either the end of last week or this past weekend. I'm not sure what iPhone calls it but my phone displayed your task alarm up through the blank timed out screen (I wasn't using the device).

I checked your website just now and the Costco task correctly shows Thursday.

There are 2 common denominators to similar instances of this problem. 1st, it only occurs on a task with an alarm that I've changed the due date. 2nd, the alarm always shows ~1 minute before. I always change the (in this instance) Costco dates in Outlook--Outlook does not have an ~1 minute, just you. Also, the alarm went off this p.m. and I always set the Outlook task alarm to the my preset default of 8 a.m.

Hope this helps--

From Topic: Sync stall



I'm not sure what you mean by alarms that 'come from device'. I frequently have alarms associated with tasks. ~95% of the time, the alarms are set in Outlook and synced to you. Even if the alarm were to be set on the app, it would still be syncd back to outlook and later sync back to you.

For example, excluding today (I've addressed the 2 tasks with today alarms) there are 2 tasks up to including Thursday that have alarms.

I would guess that during a given week I have 2-4 alarms set at any given time within a 7 day window. There are a lot more if you were to include all tasks--some of which may alarm a year or 3 out.

There have been ~2 updates since I first posted this issue. If you are still working the problem--fine.

In the event you all think it's fixed, I'm advising that (from my end) it remains problematic.

Whenever I open the application with sync on no work can be performed until sync has completed.

When sync is set to off, there still remains a stall period--just not as time significant as the previous.

There's one other related possible problem that I'd like to report given that my earlier post in this thread appeared to possibly make sense.

I'd swear that the 'time to sync' has significantly increased seemingly as a function of a recent iPhone app update.

When the sync bar goes solid and the text says 'complete' the solid bar will sit there for at least 5 seconds (I haven't gone so far as timing it so the time is a gut impression).

EDIT: Please disregard this post. I checked the sync at home adjacent to the WiFi router and the sync performed correctly. The problem I referred to must be location related.

FYI--the app is unresponsive during sync (that's why I turn same off at the gym). But I presumed the app couldn't do both sync and perform at the same time so I didn't mention this in my post.

If sync is on and I can Add a Task before sync starts then the typing will stall and type ahead characters will be held in the buffer until sync is complete otherwise if sync had started before and I hit the button and then attempt the button, the button is unresponsive until after sync completion.

Win7-->gSyncit-->iOS

When at the gym and on an aerobic machine, the > blood flow to my brain seems to stimulate thinking. IOWs I'm constantly coming up with new tasks, task modifications and web snippets--so I turn sync off to allow for my constant open, closing and task change within the app.

With sync off I would expect there to be no app hesitation in allowing a New Task upon opening the app. However, it seems that the app, with sync off, wants to check back with you before allowing the New Task button to work--or at least that's the impression I get for the app not immediately responding to the button.

In summary, if all sync is turned off, shouldn't access to the New Task button (or the settings button) be instantaneous?

When I'm at the gym, on a machine, with a profusion of 02--I generally come up with a steady stream of ideas to add to tasks. For this reason I turn off sync.

However, each time I open the app there's a couple of second stall (no where near as long as required for sync) before the app will allow me to Add a task.

I'm curious why there's the stall if the sync is turned off.

Per yesterday's iOS update my notes folders are now syncing correctly.

Sorry for the incorrect information.

I'm used to Outlook notes that do not have a title and, not looking at the top of the screen, simply assumed I was typing in the body as in Outlook.
