Background

Toodledo (pronounced "two-dull-due") is a small private company located in Encinitas, California (near San Diego). Toodledo was founded in 2004 by Jake Olefsky, a Stanford University and IDEO alumnus. Toodledo is self-funded, profitable and has grown organically to 7 full time employees and a handful of part-time contractors.


Mission

It is our mission to make tools to help people stay more productive and be more efficient. Here is a brief summary of our key productivity tools.

Tasks - The main component of Toodledo is the Tasks section. Here you can create a to-do list and customize it to suite your own particular productivity style. We have over 15 different attributes that you can track (priority, due-date, folder, location, etc) and dozens of customizable settings. You can sort, search and filter your list in powerful ways and view charts and calendars. You can get alarms for tasks that are due soon and use Toodledo's smart algorithms to help you prioritize your day. Subscribers can use subtasks and file attachments as well.

Collaboration - Toodledo has powerful collaboration tools to enable you to share portions of your to-do list with different people. Share your "Home" tasks with you spouse and your "Work" tasks with your coworkers. Reassign tasks to different people and manage other people's to-do lists, with customizable permissions.

Notes - In the notes section you can store long-form notes on any topic. It is a great place to store information that isn't actionable and so shouldn't belong on your to-do list. For example, you could store your favorite recipes, your resume, or notes on your million dollar idea. You can organize these notes into folders and format them with bold, italics, clickable links, etc.

Outlines - The Outline section gives you a way to organize your ideas by breaking them down into a hierarchical structure with multiple levels of nested items. Make an outline for a big project to help you plan and stay organized. Outline items can be checked off, toggled closed or rearranged via drag and drop.

Lists - The Lists section provides you with customized lists for any purpose. Use it like a spreadsheet or use it to create packing lists, dieting logs, or an address book. Make a list to remember your favorite restaurants, or keep an inventory of your coin collection. For each list, you can customize the number and type of columns, with more than 20 different column types to choose from: text, number, date, rating, price, etc.

Habits - The Habits section helps you make good habits and break bad habits. Record your progress each day and see continuously updating graphs and charts.

Mobile - Our popular iOS and Android apps enables you to take your entire to-do list with you on the go and work offline. It supports the core functionality of our website and takes advantage of native capabilities: audible alarms, GPS alerts for when you are near a location with tasks, etc.

3rd Party Tools - One of our core beliefs is openness. We do not lock people into our platform. If you want to export your data someplace else, we provide a number of ways to do so. We also have a free Developer API that allows other people to make great apps on top of our service. To date, more than fifty 3rd party apps have been made to sync with Toodledo on every major platform.

Introducing the Ribbon

Aug 25Today we have released our first step in redesigning the Tasks section. We have taken the old "View By" section in the sidebar and turned it into the "Ribbon", a blue strip down the left side of the screen. The Ribbon provides a quick way to switch between different ways of viewing your tasks. It also allows you to easily collapse the sidebar to maximize the amount of screen space available for your tasks, so that you can focus on what's important.



For consistency, we have added the Ribbon to all of our major sections (Tasks, Notes, Outlines, Lists and Habits) and we plan on enhancing the other sections to take full advantage of the Ribbon in the future.

In addition, we have improved how long to-do lists are displayed. Now, the long lists will scroll within their task section instead of scrolling the entire page. The Toolbar and Ribbon will always remain visible. This means that you no longer need to scroll all the way to the top of the page when you want to add a new task, switch views or change your filters or sorts. This will save you time.

This is one of the biggest single changes that we will make to the Tasks section. Most of the rest of our redesign changes will be more incremental. We know that a big change like this will take some getting used to and that not everyone will immediately like it. When you use a productivity tool every day, you expect it to function a certain way so that you can get things done. With this change, you will need to relearn how to switch between different lists and some of you may need to make small adjustments to your column widths. We think that within a few days, you will have become accustomed to the new Ribbon and we hope that you will be more productive as a result.

We have been testing the Ribbon for several weeks with our Beta testers and have gotten very positive feedback. We have also done considerable testing ourselves across many different browsers and platforms, so we feel confident about this release. As with any release, it is possible that we have missed something minor so please let us know. We will be monitoring the forums and our support tickets carefully today and the rest of the week and will be quickly fixing anything that turns up.
