Has anyone here used Achieve Planner for GTD? It looks interesting. Just wondering if it can integrate with Toodle-do. It is a desktop application and I can sync to Outlook and then sync to an iPaq with it.

Update: I was able to get my subtasks to show up as soon as I gave them a priority higher than -negative. :)

OK, playing around a bit more I discovered that newly created tasks/subtasks in Toodledo are viewable in TaskAngel and if you move them in Toodledo then TaskAngel recognizes this. I tried moving an older subtask to the task position and then moving it back as a sub-task but TaskAngel still did not recognize it. I did refresh the Toodledo screen first before syncing but that didn't make a difference.

Also, the one older subtask that does appear in TaskAngel had no due date. The other subtasks with a hard due date do not show up.

Hi Andrew,

I am still having trouble viewing my sub-tasks in TaskAngel. I did have one task where the subtask showed in TaskAngel so I tried setting other tasks/subtasks with similar attributes to get them to show up but no luck. Newly created tasks/subtasks (in Toodledo) show up but not edited (in Toodledo) tasks/subtasks. I tried resyncing and the subtasks did not carry over, despite giving them a hard due date. I also tried it with no due date.

BTW TaskAngel does recognize the optional repeat (?Today) for my tasks - just not the subtasks.

Can Optional Recurring Tasks / Subtasks be included in your next update?

It looks like the only workaround would be to just give everything an actual due date. I assume this would mean than I would end up with a bunch of overdue tasks if I didn't religiously check them off daily or reschedule them for the next day.

Ideas?

Thanks for the reply back. I will still trial the program and try to work-around not having the optional repeats. Perhaps I can list them in a Note for reference.

I did notice, however, that the TaskAngel did change all my due
?Today Tasks to Due Yesterday so that may be a problem as now I have to reset them to optional again.

Also, I do have some subtasks that repeat with parent with no due date that do not appear in TaskAngel either.

Thanks for your work on this program!

Hi Andrew,

My tasks and sub-tasks in Toodledo are fine. In TaskAngel some of my subtasks are not showing up. The subtasks that are not showing up are set to repeat as follows:

?Today - Daily

The question mark means the subtask is optional so if I forget to check off the subtask as done one day it just roles over to the next day (great for routine tasks!)

Thanks for your help.

Hi Andrew,

I can get some of my subtasks to show up but not all. My Optional Repeats do not show up. These are important for my repeating daily tasks. Having them repeat optionally ensures that they don't start stacking up undone. Is that something that is supported in this version?

Thanks

That is great news Andrew! And very timely as my Toodledo subscription needed to be renewed today and this was the one thing holding me back!

OK, I did try out the Abduction Add-on for Firefox and it worked quite well. I was able to save as an image my 4 main routine tasks/subtasks and copy them to Microsoft Publisher. Using Abduction I only selected the checkoff boxes, the task and due date columns. In Publisher I used an 8 1/2 x 11 layout and copied a border from the Design Gallery, resized them to 3 x 5 and duplicated x 4. Then I copied and resized my 4 routine images within these borders. I printed it on cardstock and cut them to size for my Hipster PDA. LOL! It took no time at all and I plan to do this with my Hot List as well.

Thanks Peter. I didn't realize that iPod had a PDA type device. Never really checked into them. It's still not an option however but I appreciate the info. I do have a netbook though and can access by list that way. Even though it is quite small it is still not convenient for "working my list."

Is there any way to remove columns for the sole purpose of printing?

Right now I am removing columns from my account settings, printing and then going back into account settings to re-enable the columns. There has to be a better way to just print my checkbox, task and due date without everything else.

I've been trying out Abduction for FF but am interested in other alternatives.

Thanks!

Hello,

I tried the email task feature but found that it opens up Outlook to send the email. Is there a place I can specify for Toodledo to use my Gmail account instead?

Thx!

I had a minor glitch on my initial sync with Toodledo but it was when I was using our home wireless internet connection and had to do with a proxy setting. As soon as I disabled it everything synced up nicely and was very fast!

Thanks for creating this offline app. I am coming up on my renewal for Toodledo and was debating about whether to continue. Now I will for sure since I can get to my list offline.

Agree with the others that sub-tasks are essential. After playing around with TaskAngel I realized none of my actual tasks (sub-tasks) are included. I use Tasks (in Toodledo) as projects and sub-tasks as my actual tasks list. I may list my sub-tasks in the notes section for each task so I at least have an over-view of what I need to do. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the tip about TaskAngel! I just downloaded and it works perfect! It synced to Toodledo with no problem at all. It will be nice to be able to work from my list when offline!

Now if I could find a hand held solution that doesn't involve getting an iphone or data plan. Will take a look at the print options again.

I am looking for a good desktop to do manager to use offline. I really thought MyLife Organized was going to work for me except the repeating function is not useful for recurring tasks that float. Marking tasks to regenerate when completed results in the regenerated item scheduled for the next date but does not maintain the original time. Basically I have a lot of daily routines that need to regenerate on a daily basis.

I don't have an iphone, but I do have a palm pilot and an ipaq that I may be able to get working again. I'm really struggling with finding a solution that will allow me to carry my to do list with me so I can check things off as I work. I am not always at a computer so I think I may have to resort to a printed list. I wish the Toodledo booklet was more configurable.

Any suggestions or recommendations?

I have a few tasks that could be done at more than one context. For example, Wash the Car could be on my @Home context or on my @Errands context, depending on if I want to do it myself or take it to the car wash. This is a recurring task so I would like to be able to choose a context specific to each repeat.

Is there a way to change a context so that if only changes the current repeat and not the series?

Thanks

Thanks for the feedback!

Just an update on using Taskline - I had the trial loaded and found that it took quite a bit of time classifying each task so that it would be scheduled appropriately. Then I found that the Outlook Sync for Toodledo didn't handle repeats very well and ended up uninstalling that. Overall, using the task list in Outlook reminded me of how much I like Toodledo and how easy it is in comparison. I can still see the benefit of being able to select certain tasks to show on your calendar though just to make sure you have time available and don't over-commit yourself.

I do know the benefit of taking care of the big rocks first but my dilemna has always been ignoring the little stuff to the point where they become big rocks. I would like to get a handle on the routine, day-to-day stuff to see what time is actually left to Get Things Done. :)

One problem that I am having is finding time to go through my various Inboxes or collection areas. It is supposed to be part of my morning routine but I find that it takes much longer to process than what I have time for. I guess it will just take time.

Thanks for the link for Zen-to-Done. I visited that site not too long ago and found the information helpful.

I've downloaded and installed the Outlook Sync tool with no problems. I read about the master / slave relationship for recurring tasks and understand that it can only go one way. Is that per task? Can recurrence be set in Toodledo for some tasks and in Outlook for others?

Also, the tasks I have set up in Toodledo with repeats synced to Outlook incorrectly. I have one set to repeat optionally daily and in Outlook the next repeat is not until Monday. Also, shouldn't my Outlook tasks that originated in Toodledo have no repeat if Outlook is the slave? When I check the repeat option in Outlook some are set to repeat. Will this task duplicate twice? Once because Outlook shows it as a repeat and again when I resync after Toodledo repeats?

And finally, what is the best way to fix this? Should I remove the repeat from Toodledo, set it up in Outlook and resync?

Thanks!
