I admit to being somewhat frustrated with the general direction of your development, Jake, over the past 2 years.
It has taken me a long time to accept the fact that Jake's direction will be whatever it will be.

Toodledo is a business and, as long as the business meets Jake's expectations, then whatever he is doing is fine. He can't do everything so he has to choose.

As for the users, we also have choices ...

Same with any other "mindset" for getting things done -- skills, discipine, and tools have to work together and mutually reinforce ... but effective tools are *very* important.
I didn't say that tools aren't important. I'm saying that tools don't "impart discipline". Do you disagree?

Anyway, what do you use for tracking big projects and big ideas?

I fear your statement "flexible enough to support any methodology," however.
...
So if the app doesn't impart the GTD discipline, the user ends up disappointed in GTD, because he thinks he's doing it, but doesn't see the results.

Don't be afraid ... ;)

The app doesn't impart the GTD discipline because the app can't impart the discipline. As David Allen has said many times in his recordings and videos, GTD is a mindset and a set of skills. It is independent of the tools that you use to develop the mindset and acquire the skills. In any case, Jake does not follow GTD, nor do most Toodledo users, based on my experience on these forums for the past five years.

As for David Allen, take a look at this video: TheBrain and David Allen.
Now that's an outline!

I had it with Lotus Notes, but now that I am forced to use the microsoft platform I am without.

Okay, not exactly the same but Outlook Tasks and Appointments have multi-level lists, and Microsoft Word has had very powerful outlining since 1990.

Google Tasks allows unlimited nesting.
Google Documents and Evernote allow nested bulleted lists.
TreePad, a powerful tree-structured data manager, has been available since 1995.
If you're looking for a simple online outliner, there's Oak Outliner and, for teams and sharing, there's Checkvist.

Various mind-mapping programs have been available for years, e.g. MindJet and TheBrain.
And there's the simple and very cool Text2MindMap.

Mobile/desktop solutions:
LifeBalance has had outlining for several years, first for Palm and then for iOS devices, along with desktop software for Windows and Mac.
MyLifeOrganized has extensive outlining and is available for iOS, Android, and Blackberry. It offers WiFi and Cloud syncing, and Outlook synchronization.
Outliner by CarbonFin for iOS devices has been available for several years, and offers website/device sync.
Android Outliner offers Due Dates and Status, along with Dropbox syncing and OPML import/export.
If you want to visualize your ideas in a mindmap and sync with various desktop mindmapping software, there's iThoughts for iPhone and iPad.

Toodledo Outlines? Well, it's here ...

Okay, let's see:

No way of classifying the outlines, e.g. Folders, Contexts, Tags.
No Date Completed.
No Dates that can be modified by the user.
No Notes.
No Filters.
No links to Tasks or Notebook.
No ability to copy a branch.
No ability to uncheck all items in a branch.
No ability to automatically create numbered lists.
No indication of proportion of items completed.
No ability to export data.

Seems to me that this is still in Beta (or even Alpha, depending on what are considered the main features.)

How many users were asking for an outliner in Toodledo?

Meanwhile, as Salgud points out, there are many features that users have been asking for and that haven't been implemented. For example, take a look at this topic: http://www.toodledo.com/forums/2/14676/0/possible-improvements-and-new-features.html

Posted Jun 04, 2013 in: Toodledo Toosdays: Task Templates
Score: 1

A few more points:

1. If you are planning on using Folders, Contexts, Goals or Tags in your Task template, and you want those values to apply to the parent task and all of the subtasks, you can save some time if you specify those values in the parent task before you create the subtasks. Otherwise, you'll have to change the values for each subtask.

2. When you create the subtasks, you can use the "Add multiple tasks" feature.

3. You can't pre-populate time intervals between subtasks for non-repeating parent tasks. You can put dates but those dates won't be automatically updated when you clone the parent task. As an example, you might have a set of tasks that you do routinely but not at fixed intervals. If some of those tasks must be done at specific times over the course of a few days, it will take some additional effort to stipulate the schedule, even if you use a template.

4. "Task templates" seem to be best for checklists.

5. For simple checklists, you might find it easier to add the items in the task's Notes instead of creating subtasks.

6. The templates (parent task and subtasks) are still part of all your tasks so you'll want to somehow filter them out of your list of active tasks. See How do filters work?

7. You'll probably want to assign your templates to a Context or Folder called "Templates" so that you can find them easily. Or you could create a Saved Search based on some other variable. The Quick Search function won't work if your templates have been filtered out of your task list.

Ideally, the Templates should reside outside of your task list and they should be available when you create a new task, but you can't do this in Toodledo. Not yet, anyway.

Posted by gothick:
Another, vaguely-related bit of feedback: the sync config screen's "On/Off" sliders for the options really look "off" to me when they're in the "on" state. The complete lack of colour and "greyed-out" look to them when "On" really "feels" to me like they're not switched on when they are...
I agree.

This what I said more than two months ago:
Throughout the app, the "ON/OFF" switch is light grey when "ON". This is not consistent with the ON/OFF switches in other iOS apps or in the iPhone/iPad Settings, which use blue for "ON". Seems to me that you decided that there was too much blue so you went with light grey even though the iOS default offers better visibility.

In the link that you provided, Jake says this:
There is probably an old completed task that still has the wrong capitalization.
Have you searched for completed tasks?

Toodledo does not sync with Outlook.

Your question is about a 3rd party tool that syncs with Toodledo. Please contact the company that makes that software for assistance.

There's only one version of the Toodledo iPhone/iPad app. If you don't already have it, then you'll have to purchase it if you want to sync with the Toodledo website.

Toodledo can do complex searches.
And, all searches have an implied "If statement".

You want a search based on "If today is Saturday".
That's not possible in Toodledo.

You can, though, create a task that repeats "every Saturday".
See: How do repeating task work?.

Toodledo is a combination of "to do" and "toodle-oo", which means good-bye, as in "cheerio and toodle-oo". It's a bit like TTFN -- ta ta for now.
