+1 for context. This will be create for adding tasks on the go via Siri.

(In the meantime, I'll attempt to do this via the email add function.)

Thanks!

I think there is a bug in how dropdown menus work. I find it limits my ability to be keyboard only, and I'm wondering if anyone else can duplicate it.

Basically, when I'm tabbing through a task and am on a dropdown list the list "deactivates" after I've pressed one key. So, if I have contexts that are "phone" "people" I can only get to people, the 1st alphabetical choice. When I manually click a dropdown list it functions normally, accepting multiple key strokes.

I'm using the latest version of Chrome on Windows 7, but I've also tried it on IE.

I also wish Toodledo had this. I know it has been requested for the last 3 years, and Toodledo had said that it was "in the pipeline".

It would be a big productivity boost.

I would like the column order for task entry to follow the order I've otherwise setup. As it currently stands I have to tab through some irrelevant fields to get to the ones I care about. It ends up taking too long on the keyboard, so I then end up using the mouse, which is also slow.


In searching I saw that this is a previously requested feature, and one on the development task list:

Is it still something you plan on including?

I want to improve getting @waiting items into Toodledo but don't have the script chops to do it myself. As a consequence I've put a posting on Freelancer.com:
http://www.freelancer.com/projects/Visual-Basic/Visual-Basic-Script-for-Outlook.html

Here's the gist of the posting:
I use Toodledo, a web-based to do list. I would like someone to create an Outlook visual basic script to help me use it better.

Basically, Toodledo allows input via email, using a customized address @toodledo.com. I would like to send emails that need follow up to the recipients, and then a slightly customized, more descriptive version to Toodledo.

As of now I send many emails that I would like to go in my Toodledo @waiting folder (or context). Sending it to my Toodledo bcc address loses valuable info:
1) It’s not clear who the recipient is
2) The title sometimes includes the wrong description
3) It’s not filed into @waiting

I would like a visual basic script that will send more descriptive @waiting items from Outlook to Toodledo. The item in Toodledo should contain the date, who the email was sent to, and an optional descriptive title.

Here’s a potential script workflow:
1) script triggered by a keyboard shortcut
2) email to recipient sent
3) Outlook presents an input box with two text fields
a. The first for descriptive title containing as a default the email's subject line
b. The second is blank for the folder
4) Outlook sends an email to Toodledo email with the following info
a. In the subject line: Name of recipient -- descriptive title or default subject line (day/month of email), @waiting and, if applicable, the folder
i. Example: John Smith—website redesign (12/31) @waiting *website
b. body should contain full email, including all recipients and original subject line

The full Toodledo email syntax can be found here, but the relevant parts are as follows:
• context = @ + context. For this it is @waiting
• folder = *+folder. For example, *website

I agree-- I often add tasks & subtasks together. Right now it requires several clicks. So, +10 for me please.

Hi All,

I'm really liking Toodledo and am now trying to optimize it for the long haul. One issue I have is getting email requests seamlessly into my @waiting folder. I also suspect other folks would benefit from the same solution.

Often I email folks asking for something or otherwise leaving a project in their hands. I'd like to set up a rule-triggered Outlook script so that these items get automatically sent into Toodledo with the right subject header and in the right category. I think this would be easy to do for anybody with some Visual Basic skills (which I lamentably lack).

Specifically, I'd like to:
1) send an email to someone and BCC myself
2) then take that BCC email, add to the subject line who I sent it to and the date in parenthesis. It would look something like John Smith (1/1)-- Original Subject Line
3) send this modified email to Toodledo

Triggering a script with a rule and sending an email to Toodledo are easy. Also, much of the script could probably be borrowed from here:
http://www.toodledo.com/forums/3/6709/-2/one-click-toodledo-outlook-button-code-included.html#end
It's just the actual script that I can't do :-(.

If anybody has the kind of chops to whip this script up or otherwise suggest a solution, I'd be grateful.

Yours truly,
Ari

Okay, so it turns out that I don't speak Visual Basic (or any other scripting language, sadly). Might anybody have a suggestion for sending better @waiting items from Outlook? What I want should be pretty straightforward and derivative (in a good way).

Specifically, I'd like to:
1) send an email to someone and B'CC myself
2) then take that BCC email, add to the subject line who I sent it to and the date in parenthesis. It would look something like John Smith (1/1)-- Original Subject Line
3) send this modified email to Toodledo

Triggering a script with a rule and sending an email to Toodledo are easy. It's just the actual script that I can't do :-(

Absolutely brilliant. I'm a horrific script writer, but I'm attempting to adapt this so that any email I bcc to myself will get forwarded to my @waiting folder with the subject line as the person i sent it to, the date and the original subject line.

Wish me luck!
