I have my Folders view sorted by Task/Subtask (Reverse), then Alphabetical, then Due Date. The parentless subtasks show at the top, which I want, but neither they nor the parents listed below appear not to be sorted at all.

Sort by Task/Subtask seems to block all subseqent sorts.

On a hunch, I tried both manual and automatic sorting of subtasks, but it does not make any difference to the sorting of the tasks or subtasks in this view.

I see that this bug was mentioned and acknowledged in this forum back in 2010, but still apparently has still not been fixed!

Thanks for any attention or advice.

Un-star of the next iteration of a repeating task is an excellent feature. I do wish it wouldn't also un-star the completed item. I like to be able to see that I've completed a high-priority task!

Also I wish the setting were part of the repeat dialog for each item, rather than global. Some repeating items (pay quarterly taxes) are high priority as soon as they become current, but others are not.

Thanks for all your improvements!

I'll bite. Where's the option to un-star a repeating task when it is completed?

+1 for this long-overdue feature. I just accidentally clicked a column heading and had to recreate a three-level sort. Arrgh!

From Topic: Updates to Subtasks

Excellent upgrade!

My choice: "Indented mode shows all subtasks nested, even if the parent shouldn't be visible."

I use parent tasks for mini-projects, and put them all into a "@Planning" context, which is filtered out of my main to-do view. Since that view is a custom search, I can filter out @Planning (along with @Waiting and other non-action categories).

Since the parents "shouldn't be visible," the subtasks appear under their proper heading, sorted according to their own characteristics. But I can easily review all the steps of the project simply by clicking "Show all". This is handy when I complete a task and need to update the due dates and active status of tasks that depend on it.

Right, though to be fair, it was a third-party app that saved my task list this time around.

Since then, I've created a bookmark in my browser to the address for XML backups: http://www.toodledo.com/xml.php. It's the next best thing to automatic!

I recently had the hair-raising experience of losing all my to-do items. Others have reported this, and I'm not blaming Toodledo. The cause was probably GotToDo on my Android phone, and Toododo's policy is to disclaim responsibility, which is their privilege.

I hereby request an automatic daily database backup of some kind. Even simply putting all deleted items (regardless of the source of the deletion request) into a "deleted" folder would be a big help. But I'm willing to be patient.

For the benefit of others, though, I'd like to tell how I recovered my data. As it happens, I had the Windows program TaskAngel running, with a regular sync setup. TaskAngel can be set to back up its database automatically! I simply opened the backup file, re-synched, and was restored to the date of the last backup. Some cleanup work required, but not much. The default location for TaskAngel data, including the backup file, is C:\Users\Dan\AppData\Roaming\MyPocketSoft\TaskAngel.

So while we're waiting for an auto-backup feature, you might want to consider using TaskAngel too: http://www.mypocketsoft.com/taskangel/.

Impressive. One tiny editorial note: I find the word "forwards" a little jarring. While I don't suppose it is actually wrong, I believe "forward" would be more in keeping with modern usage.
