This is one reason why there's an iOS version of TD. The website is not compatible with mobile touch screen devices.

A simpler solution to forgetting "Waiting" tasks, is to put them in your weekly review. If you don't do a weekly review, add a weekly repeating task, "Review waiting tasks". Then you won't forget. This is one of TD's best features, it can remind you to do tasks you might otherwise forget!

Been using Grocery Gadget on my iPhone for a month now, and am very please with it. It has a somewhat quirky interface, as I mentioned above, but I like quirky as long as it's not obtuse or complicated, which GG is not. It takes me a fraction of the time it took with TD to simply mark an item to be on my list for that week. In all fairness, I was running TD thru Chrome and the slim site, which is definitely not optimal. Would have been much quicker using the iOS TD app for sure.

It did lock up a few times at first, but either the app has settled down since, or maybe they did a fix. In any case, it hasn't done that in quite a while. One related criticism, I posted a query about this problem on their website a month ago, but never got a reply. So apparently, there is no support. Fortunately, I haven't needed any since.

I recommend GG if you have a long shopping list and shop at multiple stores. It also can track different costs and aisles at different stores, coupons, multiple shoppers and probably your shoe size, if you want. If you can get past that first qualm, if you have it, with the interface, it does just about everything you could want in a shopping app.

Just think how great you'll feel Jake, when you finally get to cross this off "the list"! ;-)

Another option: I had a similar problem with 2 TD accounts a few years ago. I couldn't find a third party app (back then) that mimiced all the TD features I wanted. I found a workaround that worked quite well, which was to access my main account through one browser (Safari), and the other account through Chrome. This way, I didn't have to purge and mess around with the accounts. Literally for years after I crossed the two accounts, a tag from one was in the other, and even though no tasks used it, it hung in there!

Lists and Outlines are not yet available on the mobile apps. It's on "the list".

I've tried everything I can think of so far, but the best I can get is a link. Any ideas?

There is a very long-standing request to make the Hotlist more, if not entirely, user definable. I just want ahead and did it.
Salgud

Posted by DSM:
Hmmm. Can you also affect the Hotlist via the Status field? That is, if I move the task to Reference (or some other non-Active status), will the Hotlist know that I'm not going to do it right now? If not, shouldn't it?


This is why some (many?) of us no longer use the TD Hotlist. It's relatively easy to create one to meet your exact needs as a Saved Search. Then you can include any field you want, any date restraints you want. Mine excludes certain folders (like my Templates folder), tags (like my Weekly Review tag), and, of course, status.

I have just moved away from using TD as my grocery list (I believe there are dedicated apps that work better for this purpose), but here is the link to the method I used to do this in TD:

It may or may not work for you, or maybe it will give you an idea of how to make a better shopping list for yourself.

You English is quite good, far better than my imaginary "German"!

You can create virtually any search you can imagine using any of the available fields in TD. To create a "Due in the next 10 Days", click on Search in the upper left corner, then "New Search". Leave the
Checked Off|no
criteria as is, the change the one below to
Due Date|Is in the Next|10 days
Click Search
Then you can save the Search by clicking on Save Search in the upper right hand corner of the TD screen.

You may find that the Saved Searches are the real power of TD. Many of us "live" entirely in the Saved Search screen. I've even re-created a few of the built-in searches in the Saved Search screen so I rarely go to the others.

Almost 2 years ago, I posted here that I had created a grocery list app using a TD free account. http://www.toodledo.com/forums/3/15385/-77997/a-td-grocery-list.html

It worked well for a while, but has become, like it's predecessor, slow and kludgy feeling. It didn't scroll well and adding new items was not easy. This is nothing against TD as it is not intended for this purpose, and I was just using it because I had it, knew how to adopt it to my needs, and I was fed up with the one I'd been using for years and had spent a lot of time looking at grocery list apps for what I wanted.

So I finally went back and started looking for a grocery app that has all the features I wanted, and this time, I found one. It's called Grocery Gadget and it has the main feature I had so much trouble finding is the ability to have multiple stores per item because I shop regularly at 4 different grocery stores. GG can do that and considerably more, and it has a mostly intuitive, if not a bit odd, interface that I figured out in a few minutes of playing with it. It's much faster and more intuitive for a grocery list, and works very well for my purposes. By the way, I have no financial interest in GG, just giving it my recommendation.

So I'm no longer using TD for my grocery list and am happy to be moving on. Again, this is not to be interpreted as a criticism of TD as a task manager in any way, it's just less than ideal as a grocery list tool, though it's served the purpose for almost 2 years. It just shows how flexible it can be.

Go to the Search view, select new search, change Checked Off to yes, enter any criteria that will help you find your Dr. appointments ("task contains Doctor"), click Search.

Posted by gggarrett:
I do not agree that there is anything old-fashioned about the interface. It was changed a year or so ago and stills looks and works just fine.


Actually, it was 3 years ago, July 2011. Whether it looks old-fashioned or not is a matter of taste. Some of us felt it looked old-fashioned when it was new. :-)

The latter.

The easiest way to do that now, is to do a Permanent Link on the parent task, then multi-edit the folder to the new one.

It seems to me this depends mostly on what your relative market position is. I know nothing of games, so can't speak to the "World of Slaughtering off most of the World's Population", but it's clear that M$ has a pure monopoly on Office apps, and can do whatever they please, including publishing all their plans for the forseeable future without concern. Not so for TD.

I can't say in all cases of course, but I checked one of my saved searches that uses a tag, and it works in on my iPhone as well. YMMV.
