I've put some more time into trying to make the subtasks work. The deal breaker is that I can't find a way on the iPhone (where I spend 100% of my time with Toodledo because I'm mobile) to quickly add a task on the fly, and later move it to a subtask when I have more time to clear my "inbox"

The only way I can figure out, is to actually be on the parent task, and click subtask. This takes too much time, and caused me to forget some items, because I couldn't keep them in my head while I moved through a list of projects, and than selected subtask.

I need to be able to quickly list a task, and figure out where it goes, later.

If I'm wrong about this, please let me know.

Thanks,

Bruce

Ok, I'll download it and give it a try.

Thanks!

Do you have to pay to sync todo with toodledo? I couldn't find this listed on the app description.

Thanks,

Thanks for taking the time to read and respond to this. I've used the inline setting, before I posted. I don't want hidden, because I don't want to forget about a task. But, when I had a number of projects, with subtasks in the projects folder. They sorted like I indicated above with subtasks and projects all mixed up.I was unable to find a sort option that would make them display under their parent. I wasn't looking for them to indent, although that would be nice.

This exploration stems because I've been looking at the iphone version of Ominfocus. I would rather stay with Toodledo, because it has been rock sold reliable. But I would like a better implementation of GTD.

The deal breaker may not be the subtask stuff. If I can't create a subtask quickly, or have to do some cut and paste operations when I want to move something from my inbox, to a project subtask, that will probably put me off from using subtasks at all.

Thanks again,

Bruce

I've spend a few hours trying to get subtasks to go under their parents on the iphone app. They seem to display where ever they want to, and I couldn't set any sort options that made them go where they belong. I read a number of posts on this forums, and the only solutions seemed to be workarounds like using tags, or naming conventions.

I want to use subtasks for projects per GTD. This is why I purchased the premium service.

Ex:
Projects folder:
Project name
Task 1
Task 2
Task 3

What I end up with is:

Projects folder:
Project name
some other task in the projects folder
Task 3
Some other project name
Task 1
...

The other issue was that the only way to get something into a subtask, was to create it under the parent. Sometimes when I think of a task, I need to get it down right away. I don't have time to look through the projects folder, find the parent, and create a subtask. Is there a way to get a task to turn into a subtask on the iPhone version?

Thanks for any help that you can provide
