I'm new here, This is a first impression, please feel free to correct me, and don't think I'm picky or lazy.
When adding consulting Tasks it's often in a hurry and don't want my mind to hang on reading anything.

I've been using a computer actively for 15 years so many recommendation should be relevant.

At Toodledo the GUI feels it's been designed by coders. I think it need to be more visually intuitive with the least possible text in the interface.

If there is a way to graphically represent something let's use that instead.

1. We must first see our own entered text out of everything else.

When taking a quick look at task list, The first thing visible is 11 Line written in BIG BOLD BLUE

Importance Level: 11
Importance Level: 8 etc... (I'll never get used to that)
Ps: I've never set my task with importance level on a 1 to 11 scale, so how am I suppose to interpret that?

2. I want a little star beside the word Starred .

Like the IE, The toolbar has the option to be displayed as : Text, big icon, small icons , small icon with text. There is already icons in the iPhone app for most of these thing but they aren't used.

3. When in grid mode, the "empty" default text are dark and thus indistinguishable from user entered data, "Context: No Context, Goal: No Goal, Start: no date, Repeat: None ... the "Tag" and "Length" field they are really empty or make them light gray as in the multiline mode.

4. By having all View by action words inline at the top this is what happen. :
I see the line then read through it all , then look to get my mouse , then move close, then read it all again find the good one, and click it. Having different color or better, having icons beside each word at the top would help a lot.
Actualy the " | " delimiter (read as I) is worst than triple space.

5. The search FIELD need to be visible at all time not the word Quicksearch or please make the Collaborator,Filter sort, quicksearch to Stick open or closed between session.

6. We're all used to clicking the site Logo expecting the main page, but once logged-in I think It would be better if it would bring us to our todolist main view instead of a Toodledo introduction.

First I want to welcome you to Toodledo.

Your post is something that has been discussed here many times in detail. I know it's not always easy to search for a topic and find what you are looking for, but there are other threads that cover the very same issue.

Many of us feel the same way and Toodledo is aware of it. When something will change is not discussed or known.

Just an FYI.

Not very obvious to figure out that hoovering the checkbox to clone a task and the hand to add a subtask.

The way I must hoover the check-box and wait there still for 2000ms until some pop-up show me I can clone the task (unusual, and inefficient).

That I have to scroll my browser to the right to find that button to Add a note , (note: no info balloon saying "Add note")
And I'm on a 2048 resolution ,, so imagine someone at 1024x768 !!!

Clicking the Repeat field, why have Simple/Advanced when both can coexist by the addition of a drop box instead of the words : "Simple options..." ? all within the same space
THINK ABOUT THAT,,, It might happen that some want to use one way or another ? without fuzzing with that added clicking.

Date field : Don't writing only "24" for example, should mean 24th of this month" ?

Thanks for the suggestions. We can't comment on a timeframe for implementation, but these are on our to-do list.
