Posted Feb 24, 2014 in: Missing "Tasks" marked "optionally on"

According to the link that Jake provided:
"if the date passes and you have not completed the task, the task will be automatically removed."

But, in the same post, Jake says that "the task is automatically completed".

I'm pretty sure that "optionally on" non-repeating tasks are deleted after the Due Date passes.

Posted by mark_1337909683:
any features above which Outlook will not support may be nice but are not useful since the sync back to Outlook would strip them out.
It's not just about features that Outlook supports. It's also about features that your syncing software supports.

How are you syncing Toodledo with Outlook?

Strange answer, Jake.

The Toodledo iPhone app does not support attached files, nor does it sync with Outlook.
Outlook doesn't have subtasks.
I don't know of any third-party software that maintains the Toodledo task/subtask relationship in Outlook and that syncs Toodledo files with Outlook. Are you aware of any software that does this?

Also, you need at least a Silver subscription for subtasks and a Gold subscription for files. mark_1337909683 has a free subscription.

If a repeating task has an "optional" Due Date and the date passes, the task will automatically be moved forward. The task won't be completed, it won't be deleted, and it won't show up as overdue.

You can designate a task as "Optionally on" when you set a task's Due Date. You can see this choice by clicking on "Due by" to the left of the Due Date. Or, you can get the same result by putting a "?" before the date.

Take a look at this Help topic:
https://www.toodledo.com/info/help.php?sel=42

Also, to avoid problems similar to those in your point #3, you can set a repeating task to "Repeat from Completion Date" instead of from Due Date.

BTW, in your list of choices, #4 would be: Change the Due Date to the next day.

I fear that Jake is one stubborn so-and-so, and will keep his eye steadily on the prize, just as any smart entrepreneur would do.
Don't be afraid. ;-)

I agree with your basic premise: Jake is a business owner who is doing what he thinks will improve his results. I don't know how profitable the company is but Jake's business model has been successful in the sense that Toodledo is one of the most popular online task managers.

I also agree with this: Railing at Jake is pointless.
As long as enough people pay to use Toodledo, Jake will continue with his current approach.

BTW, Google what Strother Martin actually said.
And it's Brigitte ...

Salgud, it seems that "Repeat is Other" selects non-repeating tasks.

Try adding AND "Repeat is not None".

Hi Gregg.

The answer to each of the questions in your first post is "No".

As for advice, first re-read Getting Things Done.
Then watch this video in which David Allen explains why method matters more than a productivity tool.

Then take a look at this: http://www.43folders.com/2004/09/08/getting-started-with-getting-things-done

Take a look at Jake's post here https://www.toodledo.com/forums/2/17447/-81955/read.html where he says:
I know that you (and a few others) have been asking for saved sort/filters for years. We have not done it yet because it is a lot of work for relatively little gain, since this feature would only save a few clicks here and there.

Yes, it is possible.

Take a look at these Help topics:
How can I hide tasks that are due in the future?
How do I use the start date field?
How do due date modifiers work?

Also, take a look at this topic about displaying subtasks:
Why are my subtasks showing up on the same level as tasks?

You need a Gold Subscription to add attachments to tasks.

About two years ago, I purchased and read Linenberger's books. I don't recall anything about setting the Start Date to yesterday. Did I miss it, or is this something new?

Instead of "Tag contains", use "Tag is".

DSM:
It is obvious that each task in Toodledo already has a unique ID.
Each sub-subtask will be related to just one other task, a one-to-many relationship. In a many-to-many relationship, each subtask could belong to more than one task.
The "reason" for the relationship is determined by the data structure and by the ID number.

With your last two points, you've gone from multiple levels of subtasks to task dependency, which is a different issue.

In any case, there's the issue of how to manage, filter and display the related tasks on a website. Perhaps you have some suggestions.

Jake, many many other task management apps have found a way around this, I'm sure Toodledo engineers are smart enough to figure it out too.
Just wondering: What are, say, three online task managers that "have found a way around this"?

Peter, there are several task managers that offer multiple levels of tasks. Have you tried them?

For example, MyLifeOrganized is available for Windows, iOS and Android. There's Omnifocus for Mac and iOS. Todoist has web-based access, as well as Windows, Mac, Android and iOS apps.
I'd consider a serious contribution here if others would pitch in, if it would get this train moving.
Sometimes it's better to get on a train that is already moving ... especially if you're willing to pay a higher fare. But, it depends on the journey and the destination.

Sort by "Date Added" and you'll see the field at the far right.

Likewise, you can sort by "Date Completed" or "Date Modified".
