I forgot about the scheduler. That is a solution that could work for me.

Thanks for the reminder!

That is an interesting option but not quite what I was looking for.

I am looking for a way to filter the view to see only one active task and when I complete the task, a new uncompleted task appears.

Any ideas how to accomplish?

Is there a way to have Toodledo list only one task at a time?

Here's the scenario:
I have a list of say 10 or more items due for today. I would like to be able to create a view that only shows me one task to do. When I mark it complete; the next task on the list becomes the viewable on the list. This process continues until the list is completed.

Just asking because it is a good way to focus and not get distracted by other things on the page. I notice this view is being developed in many other task management apps these days.

If it is not available is there any plans to implement a feature like the one I outlined above?

I like the subtle color changes. Nice work!

I thought there was a bug in saved searches and maybe I was right. Sorry I never reported it. I'll test over the next few days and see if I can reproduce. If not, looks like you squashed it for me!

Just letting the world know that i too would love to be able to access my saved searches on the IOS version.

I think the real issue is that the software is so damn powerful that it is a bummer to not be able to use all that power on the mobile clients...

Good point!

I actually knew that but must have had a brain fart earlier... thanks for pointing out the obvious..

We are working really hard on an update to address lots of these problems.

One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet, which I guess I should point out, is that this design isn't really new. It's the same design that our mobile website ( http://m.toodledo.com ) has had for almost a year. We didn't get any complaints about our mobile website, so we thought it was pretty good to standardize. Obviously we were wrong.


Just browsed to the mobile site from my PC to see how the grey looks there. I think the issue is the color compared to the amount of screen real estate.

the grey colors look fine on my 21in monitor because the white space (or light grey) provides the needed contrast. Condense that all down to an iOS screen and i think it becomes less readable.

just my two cents... (still love the product!!!)

Just curious...

Why is it a "Hotlist" on the IOS apps and mobile website but 'Main" on the full website?

Can tasks with no due date repeat?

How does the logic for that work?

I think I may have answered my own question...

If a task has a start date with no end date and it set to repeat then the task will roll forward based on the repeat schedule but will have no due date and won't show in the hotlist unless it is a certain priority (2 or above). it will be listed under started which mean my hotlist will get smaller but will be an actual "hotlist" when i complete those items, I can reference them from the started list.

do I have that right?

1) I always recommend that people only use due-dates for hard dates, like appointments. If you are just picking an arbitrary date, then it cause cause lot of past due tasks that build up and cause to-do list fatigue.

Can tasks with no due date repeat?

How does the logic for that work?

After a few days of using the new version.. I have to say that i like it very much...

As I stated earlier - a little more color would be a nice addition but overall I would say that you did a wonderful job!

Very appreciate of the active development of the product and of the responsiveness of jake to the end users.

You have created a very useful product and continue to make customers very happy!

Like the update - not a fan of the color scheme... too much grey tones...

hope we get an option to add some color back..

Long time toodledo user here...

was hoping that we could get some more options for repeating entries..

Is there any plan to develop the advanced repeating functions anymore? What I was looking for was more functionality around what you call "format 2" in the repeating tasks help section.

Specifically, I was looking to be able to modify the month portion of the code. So for example, I would like to repeat tasks as such:
- On the second monday of each quarter.
- the 1st Friday of each November

any chance we can see an update for this function?

Format 2: "On the X D of each month". Where X is a number or numerical word (first, second, last, etc) and D is a day of the week (Mon, Tue, Wed, etc). Examples: On the second monday of each month, On the last Fri of each month, On the 3 Sat of each month.

I've noticed that every time I go to add a new task I have to look around for the "add task" button. It happened again just now. The placement of the button is right, but it looks too much like a part of the inner-header.

Gentlemen -

I'll second this. The ADD button sort of blends into the entire page. I do find myself searching for the button from time to time.

I like the new design and I understand that that it is "mostly" done with small changes to come.

However, I'm really not loving the grey. it is so utilitarian. I was using a Stylish Theme http://userstyles.org/styles/41218/toodledo-macosx and to go from that view back to the grey is a bit of a shocker at first.

Hopefully, styles and color aren't too far off in the future. maybe you could consider that style I linked above as an option?

Again, love the changes - miss color though. Patiently waiting to see next design changes.

Does anyone know how to make repeating projects?

The piece I am struggling with is the subtasks. I am an IT admin and I have "scheduled projects" that repeat such as deploying patches to desktops & servers monthly.

I would like to make a repeating project that contains a handful of repeating tasks (preferably with start and due dates). For example:
1 - Pick patches for deployment
2 - test patches
3 - deploy to live environment

There are other steps but you get the idea. I can get the parent task to repeat but when it repeats the sub tasks don't seem to get created with the parent tasks.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

From Topic: Locations Filter

I have recently changed my Toodledoo setup and would like to know if a feature could be added for what I perceive as a hole in the toodledo functionality.

Originally I used context to designate locations (IE @Work, @Home, etc.) However, I recently switched my contexts to locations. I think this works better for me because I know can contexts for other things.

However, the one loss of functionality that I see by using locations is that I cannot filter by location anymore like I did with contexts.

For example:
If I view by location, I cannot filter down to just one location. I unfortunately see the tasks for all locations. Same thing goes for the MAIN tab and the HOTLIST tab.

I have found "workarounds" to give me what I want but ultimately I would like to request that you Locations as one of the filter choices.

I will also be making this request via a Support Ticket as well.

I would like to request this feature as well. I get around this by making 4 tasks that repeat yearly; each task has a different due date (one for each qtr)
