From Topic: New Section: Outlines

Good work, I've been asking for unlimited hierarchy for so long. Unfortunately I've already moved elsewhere.

Posted by wksims86:
One very quick trick I use to add a couple levels of hierarchy is to cannibalize the "Context" tab to make that Hierarchy #1.

Context > Folder > Task > Subtask

E.g. "Law School > Evidence > Outlining> Outline Ch. 3 - Relevance"

This is usually deep enough to cover everything I need. If I have a folder or a task that requires more depth, I'll usually promote it to a context or folder respectively. I try to find a sweet spot between "too few tasks to get an accurate picture of scope" and "too many tasks so that I'm constantly checking off tasks."

Thanks a lot for your reply, but this add only one level of hierarchy while removing the use of Location / Context.

I don't think it's going to scale very long with me.

I just realized the most common use of added hierarchy is when you realize a sub task require to be atomized into smaller subtasks. This is at the CORE of the GTD system.

At witch point I would use the TXT field.

I will be looking for a way to code a downgrade from :
task1, sub(a) + txt X,Y,Z
task1.a with sub X,Y,Z

to :
create task1.a with sub X,Y,Z
loop for all task1 subs
delete previous task and sub

Scanning whole task DB for a specific string and use the text afterward (one new task per line) as the input for new subs.

This would be launched manually and shouldn't take more than a few seconds to process.

I lose my view when I go back from clicking a webpage.

Is there a reason why URLs don't open in target=new ?

Unfortunately Toodledo does many other things better, and I've invested much more time in learning to use Toodledo. Moving to MLO would take me a lot of time.

I was asking "How can we manage to work around lack of hierarchy ?" Other than by having low number of tasks or quitting T altogether.


Posted: Sep 17, 2012

It seems to me that Toodledo will never be scalable enough for me because of it's single level hierarche, Task and sub-tasks.

The only way arround require some hardcore mind bending and the use of detours with folders, tags and so on.

Even then task and subtask do not have the same attibute and behavior. I'm still juggling between using Toodledo or MLO.

Thanks for your thoughts.

If ever you have the occasion, try on another computer.

... I'd make a spare test account. and test with a few task,

... Then I'd try with importing all tasks.

(flowchart from the top of my head)

Per GTD anything that has more than one step is a project and should have a precise and actionable Next action.

With Toodledo, What do you do when you later realize a sub-task require more steps than you had expected ?

Do you create a folder with the name of the task, and move all subtasks to become tasks of this folder. ???
Ain't it tedious ?

Per David GTD example even buying a bicycle or dog required many steps,
Was I Using TD that way I would have hundreds of unsorted folders and to me that would be a mess.

GTD projects and the type of projects that involve Gannt Charts and the use of "Project Management" software are two entirely different things. I believe David Allen actually recommends against the use of tradition project management software for your GTD trusted source.

No Gannt chart, Ok.
But Another level of subtask or subfolder AND Multi-Edit (without search) are reasons I can't use Toodledo for anything serious. (project like)

Too often I later realize a sub-task require more steps than I expected. Then I'm fuktd with GTD next action.

They upgrade at least once a month, sometimes more.

That is IF you're using the "default" iPhone app, otherwise there has been about 3-4 unique changes to the web version this year (~9 month).

Being :
Jun 8, 2010 New action button and moving note icons (controversial benefits)
5.06 May 7, 2010 Adding Folders/Contexts/Goal on-the-fly (small)
4.93 Mar 3, 2010 You can now filter your list by multiple tags (small)
4.86 Jan 8, 2010 Task emailing + Permalinks (Good one)

My 2 cent.

MyLifeOrganized + MindManager goes hand in hand,

MLO seams advanced enough for complex Project Management,

I'm switching to this definitely as I found no way to sync MLO with Toodledo reliably.

Ticket reply :
...it looks like your account received enough "thumbs down" votes (several hundred) to get blocked from further posting in the forums. This is an automatic process.

Several hundreds... Seriously ?

Given people rarely upvote, even support post, I guess it was only a matter of time.

Thanks for watching.

I saw that Toodledo was just down for maintenance so perhaps it just has something to do with that?

Been like that for ~4 days,

Posted by SRhyse:
So how did you make this topic?

Ain't GreaseMonkey a prerequisite for using toodledo ? ;)

Posted: Aug 12, 2010

As I often held critical opinions about Toodledo on the forum, I suspect I have been somewhat banned.

If that is the case I'd have had expected being noticed officially.

Ps: These buttons are ok on a new account, so no local bug.

That's the problem. You can't have all those features and have the "ease" of TD. ... I don't want TD to try to become mini-project scheduling software.

However you look at it there is no line between a task manager and project manager.

AFAIK, Toodledo is being promoted as implementing GTD, and projects are a core part of GTD philosophy.

I'm tired of those post fearing changes.

@Toddledo, Thanks for the status update.

I love this page, If only Toodledo could do this.

From Topic: Worth buying the ap?

title is inacurate, worth buying ???

Have you read : http://www.toodledo.com/info/help_outlook.php ?

I think sync is not possible but a one time import is.

I began working with MindManager 8 , the version 9 (comming next week?) is expected to have Gantt charts so it could be considered a Project manager.

It's the best of the ~10 mind mapping soft I tried. http://info.mindjet.com/EN_WhatsNew9.html

From Topic: Adding new Tags

I could hardly be easier or more intuitive.

Or Maybe , "Edit Manually" could be "Add new custom tag"

What is intuitive is to Tag a Task.
You were trying to tag what ...? nothing.

Welcome to Toodledo ;)

You might also want to remove from your view the side panel. look up (<)

There is very important thing there but most of it IS USELESS to normal usage.
