1. In the new task defaults have the ability to set it as "Yesterday". This was discussed previously and endorsed by Michael Linenberger for his Master Your Workday Now system that he promotes Toodledo as the best web software to use: https://www.toodledo.com/forums/2/18182/0/start-dates.html
2. A way to record in Toodledo the email addresses I use and have the new task defaults customized according to the from address being used to email into Toodledo. This would allow my work tasks coming from my work email address to have different new task defaults than my personal tasks coming from my personal email address, etc.
