Two Suggestions for Consideration & One Comment
First, my comment. A big congratulations and "Thank You" to Anders for taking on the role of moderator! I appreciate your dedication and helpfulness with regards to Toodledo and getting organized in general. I believe that you might be a CRIMPer at heart ( http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/17/0/crimp-defined ).
Now, on to two suggestions for consideration. First, is there any way that backup could be automated or scripted? It would be great if I could set an interval, say daily or weekly, and have a backup file sutomatically sent to an e-mail account.
Second, have you given any thought to adding a user defined column, possibly with a very limited set of formatting options? I am not certain of how broad the value of a custome column would be to your customers, but I thought I would throw it out for your consideration.
And if you will indulge me for one additional thing. Have you had a chance to look at Smartsheet ( http://www.smartsheet.com/ )? Its a great product, although their new pricing is a bit too expensive for my taste. I wish I could merge the two programs together, but short of that, I find their approach quite useful in certain situations, and believe that it can serve as a good source of inspiration (not duplication) for the future of Toodledo. (Jake, they are local, although I believe the are on the "other" side of the lake.)
To close, the more I look, the less I find anything as well developed for my needs as Toodledo (although adding an off-line client would be most appreciated). I hope to be moving from a free account to a Pro subscription shortly.
Ken, thanks for your congradulations and kind words.
Someone has posted a script for wget to automate backups: https://www.toodledo.com/forums/3/2227/0/back-up-your-toodledo-data-with-wget.html
Please note that Toodledo has asked people using such scripts to do so responsibly, and limit backups to 1 per day at most to prevent overwhelming Toodledo's servers.
I have seen the custom field idea suggested a couple of times, and it is a neat idea. I don,'t know when/if we will see it, but in case it is added, you might want to go on record with what sort of format options you would like to see.
I am interested to check out your links, but am typing on my phone, and will have to check them later.
Thanks for the reply, Anders. I will have a look at the script, but had hoped for something to happen automatically on the back end (i.e. controlled and/or run by Toodledo with just user input at set-up). Either way, I would certainly be mindful of Toodledo's server bandwidth.
Regarding the custom field, the formats that come to mind are text, currency or numbers, pop-up lists, and possibly check marks. Smartsheet employs this in a very simple fashion, and it works great, although Ecco initially spoiled me on custom columns.

LOL, I think you've got me pegged pretty well there.
Yes, the custom field feature is on our to-do list. You might try using tags.
