Making ToodleDo Backups a Weekly Task

Given the unknown future of ToodleDo, I've created a weekly backup task. Luckily, Toodledo makes backups very easy, it's just a standard URL, the same for anyone (uses your session id). So I include the following text in the task:

1. ToodleDo Backup: https://www.toodledo.com/tools/backup.php
2. CSV Export: https://www.toodledo.com/tools/csv.php
3. CSV Completed Items Export: https://www.toodledo.com/tools/csv.php?completed=1
4. XML Export: https://www.toodledo.com/tools/xml.php

That's 4 clicks per week to have some peace of mind!

Hi,

I did the same. If someone managed to automate this task I would be interested.

Kind regards

On Windows, you can:
1) Create a batch file that will do the multiple export/backup steps whenever you run it.
2) Then create a task in Windows Task Manager to run the batch file as often as you want.

Thank you, but I should have specified my requirements: I would like a solution that I can put on a (Linux) server. Your solution only works with a browser that is already logged in.

@gummiblume - I wrote a python script to open one of those links on Chrome, which automatically downloads to a folder. Then have the script upload it to GDrive. Look into Selenium to run open the pages, and a cron job to automate this.

Holy crap!!!

I think you are right!
All you have to do is click the links & it downloads a backup file, right??
WOW!!

It seemed to work just now for me....

This will save me SO much time!!

Could we automate this with IFTT / Zapier or similar?

In view of the new lease of life, can we get this implemented by Toodledo?
