Maybe you haven't heard about Saved Searches. I suggest you find them in the help screens (maybe there's a video?) so you can create your own Hotlist (you can even call it whatever you like!) which excludes tasks more than 4 weeks or 3 weeks, or 2 weeks or...


Ah, that will do it. Thanks.

There is an old thread of this here from Summer 2013 saying (as per usual) that its 'on the list'...

http://www.toodledo.com/forums/2/16982/-80382/request-for-more-hide-future-tasks-option.html

Its the only thing about ToodleDo that bugs me - if a task is 1 month in the future, I dont need to see it on my task list all the time.

As per original suggestion, I would like to also have 'hide future task' filters of an additional:
4 weeks
3 weeks
2 weeks
1 week
5 days
3 days
1 day

I was thinking about this last night - and thought I would share this as a new idea for a future version of Toodledo.

In the GTD book, there is the idea of the status - "Next Action" and "Waiting" - which is good, but its easy to forget about the Waiting status items.

So my idea is to chain items together (using the sub-tasks item)- with the ability to create a chain of tasks. Then, When a "next action" task is marked as complete, the next "waiting" task is changed to "Next action".

Take the example of "Cleaning the garage" in the GTD book. The steps mentioned in the book were we he says "I have to clean the garage, but there is that large fridge, maybe Jo wants it, so next step is ask joe if he wants the fridge".

In ToodleDo - you could create a list of tasks as follows:

1) Ask Joe if he wants the fridge - status of NEXT ACTION
2) Get joe to pick up fridge, or sell/ditch the fridge - Status of waiting
3) Buy cleaning materials for cleaning the garage - status waiting
4) Clean the garage - status of waiting

So on a general list view (filtered on Next Action), on "Ask joe if he wants the fridge appears". But, as soon as this is ticked as complete, item 2 "Get joe to pick up fridge, or sell/ditch the fridge" gets changed to NEXT ACTION, and automatically appears on the regular view.

What do others think?

I have to agree, having a filter future task with just a limit of 1 Month, 2 months and so on is really unflexible. It would be much better if the options were...

1 day
2 days
5 days
1 week
2 weeks
3 weeks
4 weeks
1 month
2 months
3 months
6 months
year

If this is too much, could we at least add the '1 week' view filter future tasks option?
