Give it a StartDate?

The Perl Module for Toodledo seems to be working. It took a lot of work to get it installed into a full installation of Cygwin on Windows 8.1 ("dependency hell"), but, once it started working, I was able to adapt one of the example scripts to print out all of my tasks. I'm still learning the ins and outs of App::Toodledo, but, if I can a nice printout of tasks for my wife, I'll be happy.

With some help from Chris White, I was able to get Org-Toodledo working with Emacs. The key was to get GnuTLS properly installed on Windows so that the HTTPS connection worked. Still experimenting with it, but Org-Mode in Emacs looks like a powerful task management tool and, so, integrating it with Toodledo could be interesting.

Anyone making use of this addition to org-mode on Emacs? I'm attempting to set v2.13 up on Emacs 24.3 for Windows 8.1, but I get a connection problem on 'api.toodledo.com:443'. Anyone have better luck?

Oh, so I take it you've said "Toodleloo" to Poodledo..?

Anyone using the Toodledo Perl Module or Poodledo? Has anyone used them to get simple printouts of your Toodledo tasks? Perhaps use it to get the results of a saved search and print that out? Have you used them from Windows 8.1?

I would really like to produce a nice printout of my tasks from various types of queries. I hope someone has already done something.

Oh, I see. The Toodledo extension has been dropped in favor of the Toodledo Bookmarklet. Something new to learn...

I have the v1.82 of the Toodledo Extension installed on one computer and wanted to install it on another. I see v1.78 in the Mozilla Addons library. I cannot find the Addon mentioned in the Tools menu on Toodledo.com (am I just missing it?). There is an FAQ that seems to be pointing to it, but the place it points redirects me to the Tools menu (I think there is something wrong there). Where is the addon?

Boy, seems that people invent tricks to do things that Toodledo (or any task manager) should do by itself. The tricks seem to come down to a desire to trigger something to happen to a task when something else happens that is related to the task. For instance, automatically promote a task to "Next Action'" when its dependencies are done. Ranking your Next Actions by Priority gets you what to work on next.

Yeah, I think I know what you mean...

Mind you, I think task dependencies would be highly useful (do THIS after THOSE) even from the task management perspective. Most already do the parent/child relationships (THIS is done when all THOSE are done). The next would be scripting (IFTTT is a step in that direction). For task management to grow up into project management, not only will it have to do Gantt/Pert charts (ie. task dependencies), but also need to factor in resource utilization and other thngs that the project tools do. That's probably a long way off.

Hmmm. Publishing..?

Maybe that will work for me...

From Topic: Read-only Toodledo?



I'd like to build a list of tasks that the rest of my family could refer to *safely*. The problem is that the rest of my family is not (yet) very computer savvy. Therefore, I'd like the list to be read-only. One approach would simply be to regularly printout the list of tasks from (say) a saved search and hand it to them, but the current printout capability in Toodledo is severely lacking (very small font). I don't think an RSS feed would work as things disappear from the feed as soon as they're read which might lead the family to believe that they don't have to worry about it anymore.

Any other options for doing this?

So users are finding workarounds for something that Toodledo should do by itself...

I think I understand your process. It would be better to do this with Outlines, but Outlines is not yet supported in the mobile apps.

My mistake -- I see how to do this now. Very good.

From Topic: Search with "OR"



I see that you can build Saved Searches to do many things including tasks matching ALL or ANY of a list of criteria. However, what I'd like is to be able to search with conjunctions that are either AND or OR. For instance, I'd like to search for tasks where the Tag is A or Tag is B and Status is Active. Can that be done?

From Topic: Bulk Editing of Tags



Please consider adding "Tags" to the "Organize" menu. I am considering new strategies for managing my tasks beyond the standard stuff that Toodledo supports and it all comes down to well defined Tags. This will include the need for the following:

1. Bulk add/delete/change tags
2. Categorize tags -- suggest adding "X:" to the beginning of a tag to allow a tag to be added to up to 62 categories ([A-Za-z0-9]).
3. Deletion of tag either cascade deletes all tasks with that tag or removes the tag from all tasks (user choice).
4. Increase the size of the tag list per task as much as possible or perhaps add multiple tag fields to Toodledo.
5. Ensure that tags added on the web UI are visible on the iOS App (and vice versa).
6. Consider tracking when a tag is created and last used (ie. applied to a task) so that the user can readily see which tags can be cleaned up as I could foresee an explosion in the use of tags within Toodledo.

From Topic: Task Sequencing?



Does anyone do task sequencing with Toodledo? That is, how would you show that TaskB should be worked on when TaskA is finished? As far as I can see, the only way to sequence tasks in Toodledo is via DueDate, but that's very problematic and coarse-grained. I suppose you could create a List/Outline in Toodledo that is the sequence of tasks you want to do, but:

1. Toodledo doesn't yet support List/Outline on iOS, so you could refer to your sequence on your phone.
2. Toodledo doesn't (AFAIK) allow linking of List/Outline items to tasks so that you could jump to the underlying task.
3. You couldn't really use Toodledo's task management tools to manage items on your List/Outline.

Any other ideas on this?

Anyone know of a kid-friendly, read-only Toodledo App on the Kurio 7s Android tablet? Done properly, I figure I could setup the family list of to-dos that my wife could access on her iPhone and my daughter could access on her Kurio.

Another thought would be to use IFTTT (if possible) to take Toodledo tasks tagged for my daughter and post them to some place that she could see on her Kurio. Any ideas?

I tried your suggestion of Folder, DueDate, DueTime, Context, etc. That added the DueTime to the Task as a separate field from DueDate and, of course, Context is no longer visible. That's bad -- <Due-Date, Due-Time> should not be counted as two separate fields (same with <Start-Date, Start-Time>).

Interesting that it comes out as DueDate, DueTime, Folder on the display rather than Folder, DueDate, DueTime...
