Thanks guys. I'm actually using ToDo on the iPhone, but my iPhone is really my secondary app. When I do my weekly reviews, it's generally in front of my computer. Even then, I think ToDo is an excellent list manager, not so much a project manager.

My understanding of a project tracker/manager is basically a document that details the why's and how's of a project.

Hey all,

Currently, I use Google Docs to track the status of my project. I use Proximo's GTD setup, so my parent task is the project. In the notes of the parent task I will copy-paste the link to the related Google Doc project sheet. The Google Doc holds my initial outline/plan and I update it as tasks are completed or things come up.

It's time-consuming, but it allows me a good vertical (I think that's the word) view of my projects and where they're at. How does everyone here track their projects?

Thanks!
Mike

Yep, it just hit me on the head too :P. Thanks for clarifying that Peter & Proximo.

Thanks Proximo. I'm actually using your setup as well, but I'm using the status field. I'm thinking about changing it to keep things simple as well, especially because I want things to show up in my folder list. It's much more visible that way.

Also, this is a follow up on my question in the other topic, but how do you keep track of a task that you need to make a subtask? Also, I tried searching through this topic for a solution, but couldn't nail one down. I do apologize if you posted on this already.

For instance, you have an item in your inbox and you realize it would be better to make it a subtask. But if you navigate out of the inbox, you obviously can no longer drag and drop that task under the parent. How do you work around this issue?

Thanks!

Thanks for the post Proximo. I have a couple questions for you:
-Are you comfortable giving Todo your Toodledo login information? I'm assuming you are, since you're using it, but I've always had reservations about giving third parties my login data.
-I notice you have a folder for Next Actions, does this mean your NA's under a project would NOT be under the "Projects" folder?

Thanks again!


Mike, Toodledo has an API for third parties for this very purpose and I have no issues at all giving them my login information.

On Next Actions, you can read this in detail on my LONG running thread called "Proximo's GTD Setup". My Next Actions for my Projects are under the Project folder and stay with the Projects. In GTD the ideal way for this to work is that the Next Action of every Active Project shows up in the Next list for your weekly reviews.

This does not work well in Toodledo because of the Nesting and In-line functions. I decided to keep my Projects Next Actions in the Projects folder only. When I do my Weekly Reviews, I go through my Next List (Individual Task) and then my Projects list. Not a big issue but I would prefer for it to work as GTD does. Just hated the triggers I had to deal with in Toodledo.


Thanks Proximo. I'm afraid, however, I'm still confused. Does your Next list contain individual tasks not associated with projects? Or does it contain both project-related and standalone NA's?

Also, in regards to Starring. I use Stars in order to keep track of new tasks I make that I need to turn into a subtask of a project. I haven't thought of any other way to do this, how do you go about this?

Hmm, I just got ToDo and I like the way it looks, especially the main screen. However, there Is no status so I can't add tasks to projects :(. That's a killer for me.

I'm having issues with this too, but I think repeat from due date will cause the task to repeat whether it's completed or not, and always on the date it was due. The completion date option causes the task to repeat only when the task has been completed.

Yep, that fixed it. Thanks!

Thanks for the update. The "Started" tab shows 14 items, but I only have 2 items showing. I don't have any filters enabled and the "X items hidden" message is not present. Any ideas where the 14 items are from?

Wow, I had no idea what people were talking about until I installed this theme. Very nice, and thanks Vin!

BTW, what do tasks that are in bolded green font indicate?

David,

I believe you can nest the subtasks using the filter button at the bottom right of the screen.

Charles I noticed that Action Lists syncs with Toodledo and supports subtasks so I thought it might be a good solution for me.

One $10 investment later, it seems the app doesn't sync the Toodledo subtask structure - for me it flattens everything out.

Am I missing something obvious (I'm really good at that!), or did I just throw $10 away?

Very nice app though - you've done a nice job of making everything look really good.

Cheers!
David

Wow! I literally got the message to update <1 minute ago. I received no warnings regarding my add-ons, but I thought I should check Toodledo before I installed 3.6. Glad I did!

I get this every so often as well, I think it has something to do when you lose connection, i.e. going through a tunnel or switching to and from 3G and Edge.

Thanks Dave. That's a good idea, using the stars as a way to note what's been reviewed.
