I seem to be stuck, so thought I'd ask you guys for help, advice and inspiration! Any ideas? How are you addressing this issue?
I think the issue here is that Toodledo is a great tool but it can't do everything.

You identify Toodledo as your "core trusted system" and that's a great way of viewing it -- it is the core of a system that includes other tools. Toodledo plays the same role in my system but I also use Gmail, Evernote, Dropbox, and various other software.

One piece of software that I like is Outliner by CarbonFin. I use it to create outlines for some of my more complex projects. There are no dates, but it offers an unlimited number of levels, it is very easy to move tasks, and it provides a nice overview of the various steps. It is available for the iPhone and iPad and it can be accessed online with a free account. Unfortunately, you can't create a link to a particular outline or to an item in an outline so that you can access it directly in Toodledo.

BTW, I like your idea of writing the Project title "as if it has been already been completed." GTD is, of course, about getting things done, but one of the challenges is identifying what "done" is. I've noticed that the more clearly defined the project outcome is, the more likely it will be completed, and the more clearly defined the Next Action is, the more likely it will get started. ;)

This would be a seamless integration of the iPhone native reminders app and Pocket Informant. The only step that we can't get to happen is step 3.
Seamless? :-|

How are Steps 2 and 4 happening automatically? You still have to open Toodledo and Pocket Informant, don't you?

When do you want the Toodledo app to sync with the online account?

My opinion: There are too many steps and it's very likely that, at some point, something will go wrong with one of the steps and your wife will miss an important task.
Better to go with a simpler setup.

How many tasks do you have?
I have about 1000 tasks (completed and uncompleted) and my backup file is about 700kB.

I agree, though, that the 4MB limit seems small.

In the dark blue top menu, between the third sort and "Close dividers", there is an icon for "Show Details".
Click it and your Notes will be hidden.

Reason I would like it to import as Top priority is because as soon as I get to work I want to see the task so I can set it to proper priority.
You can view your Recently Entered tasks here: https://www.toodledo.com/tasks/index.php#main_1 and then make the necessary changes.

Reminders can connect to Outlook Tasks through Exchange Server. (A simple choice when setting up an Exchange Server email account on iOS devices.)

Having Toodledo sync with Reminders means that Toodledo would sync with Outlook Tasks for anyone in a corporate environment that uses Exchange Server.

The iPhone 4 doesn't support Siri, but there's still an option in Toodledo for "Siri & Reminders".

In Toodledo, you can't select a bunch of tasks and then edit one or more fields for all the selected tasks. But, you can Search tasks that have something in common (e.g. Due Date in the past) and then edit all those tasks by using the the Multi-Edit tool.

Take a look at this: Explanation of Search and Multi-Edit.

You can try the iPad settings. (Not the Toodledo settings.)

Go to Settings, General, and scroll down to choose Accessibility.
Try Zoom, but read the instructions first. Double-tap with three fingers to Zoom in or out.

BTW, does your mother use Toodledo for anything besides getting reminders to take her medication? Wondering how she deals with small fonts in other apps.

Does it work if you create an email, or if you create a note in an appointment, or if you create a contact, or ... anywhere else besides Toodledo?

What voice recognition software are you using?

Richard, it looks very good!

Wondering about a few things:
1. How long have you been using your system?
2. What benefits have you noticed in using your system?
3. Have you seen this article at Quote Investigator?

Take a look at this Help topic:
Sharing and Collaboration.

Subtasks are viewable only if the user has a Pro subscription. Otherwise, they just show up as tasks.

Hi Brian! :)

Unfortunately, you can't manually sort subtasks in the Toodledo iPhone app.

Also, there is no way of converting multiple tasks to subtasks, on the website or in the iPhone app.

Sorry. No good news.

Hmmm ... okay.

I don't use the Quick Search very often but I've never noticed a big delay, whether I'm using my "ancient" 6-year old computer, or my much newer, more powerful computer.
Also, right now (on my older computer) I tried a search with 500 tasks visible (about 4 seconds) and then with 50 tasks visible, 2 seconds.

I can't imagine how bad this would be on a slower machine!
Huh??

The search is not happening on your computer. It is on Toodledo's server. You are accessing a website, right? The tasks are not stored on your computer.

Brian, it's time for the pot to stop calling the kettle black. Your approach is full of smug condescension.

What is your intention in your three posts? If it is to demonstrate your naive approach to solving problems, then you have succeeded. Of course, you haven't actually solved any problems -- you are just saying that the problems are easy to solve.

If your intention is to criticize and patronize anyone who doesn't understand your insights, you win again.

If you want to demonstrate your ability to be vague and inconsistent, then pat yourself on the back.

If, though, your intention is to be helpful, then you have failed miserably.

Please examine your approach. You haven't received any positive feedback about your posts. Of course, you'll think that there can't possibly be anything wrong with your approach. Think again.

Edited: Toned down the sarcasm, a bit ...
