@Toodledo:
I see that you added my suggestion to your Help topics but it seems that you don't have an iPhone 4S to test the suggestion.

Siri interprets "Tell" as a text message, not an email message. Change the command to "Email Toodledo". BTW, you can add phonetic spelling to the Toodledo entry in Contacts to help Siri find it.

@Paul:
I haven't figured out how to have Siri send an email without adding text to the body.
Two partial solutions:
1. Add something as the body, and then send.
or
2. Tap on the email to send.

Posted by Toodledo:
@Salgud: Lately, I've been wondering what Toodledo's net contribution to world productivity has been. I wish there was a way to measure hours saved or stress eliminated per person.
In terms of hours saved, I'd say that Toodledo has a net loss: It takes time to learn Toodledo (the website and other devices), to enter old task lists, to add new tasks, to organize them, and to review them, before acting on them. It takes time to keep up with changes in the software and to integrate the tasks with other systems. And, as with anything new, some people will stick with it and some won't.

In terms of stress reduced (not eliminated), it's probably a net gain. I agree with what Michael Linenberger says in his book Master your workday Now!:
while some organization efforts many not pay off in terms of direct efficiency gains, I do think that there is value to the feeling of being organized; and that feeling can translate indirectly into more efficient work.

Which app are you using?

If you are using the official Toodledo app, then it is all or nothing.

Also, FWIW, if one of the issues is that it may not be allowed under company policy, then it's probably against company policy to have your personal tasks in the same place as your work tasks. You might need another Toodledo account for Work tasks.

As long as the Grid View is the default, then you can't show a field and hide it at the same time.
Multi-line View could be the answer if it showed three or four fields -- the other fields are available when you click on the task. But, for now, it shows only two fields.

You'll need to create a Search.
See: http://www.toodledo.com/info/help.php?sel=126
To view old completed tasks, click on the "Search" link in the "View by" section on the left side of the list. Then click "New Search" and enter the criteria that you want to search for, such as the date range for the date of completion. If you desire, you can save that search so that you can quickly come back to it whenever you want.

Yes, it's always been like that.
Check out this topic from 2008:
http://www.toodledo.com/forums/2/787/-3648/to-do-and-notebook-folders-names-the-same.html
Folders are shared between tasks and notebook entries. So deleting a folder will cause tasks and notes to both become folder less.

It seems to be a problem with Google.

How about if you create an entry in your Contacts that has your private Toodledo email address, put "Toodledo" as the name of that entry, and then tell Siri to email Toodledo?

You could try "Negative priority" or set the Status to one of several "Deferred" choices.

Toodledo already has reminders based on location. On your iOS device, go to Settings in Toodledo and then Field & Defaults and make sure that "Location" is in the list of "Fields Used". If not, then drag Location up from "Unused Fields" to "Fields Used" by using the 3-bar icon on the far right. Then go to Location Alarms in Settings.

On your iOS device, go to Settings, Notifications to put Toodledo in the Notification Center.

Toodledo is a web-based application. There is no Toodledo desktop application.

There is, though, a Mac desktop application from Appigo:
http://www.appigo.com/todo/mac
It's a nice application that syncs with Appigo's online task manager. But, quite frankly, I don't recommend it if you are syncing with Toodledo. It is missing many of the Toodledo fields, and I had some serious problems with the syncing. I strongly suggest that you backup your tasks before attempting your first sync. (There's a 14-day trial version available.)

If you have an iPhone/iPad or an Android device, you can sync your Toodledo data so that you can access it offline. Check out the apps here: http://www.toodledo.com/tools/directory.php

Maybe it's because you are using an iPhone 4 ...
Just kidding.

The "Force Sync" is a one-time option if, for some strange reason, there's a problem syncing. Afterwards, just use "Sync". Have you tried "Sync" lately?

I've been using Toodledo for more than three years and the only problems I've ever had with syncing were when I used a third-party app. Never a problem with the official Toodledo app.

In any case, if you are still worried about getting duplicates, you can backup your data on the website by using this: http://www.toodledo.com/tools/connect_backup.php, and restore if there's a problem with the sync.

And, you can always delete all tasks created on a particular day by using a Search and Multi-Edit: http://www.toodledo.com/info/search.php

Here's a comparison that someone did of iPhone task managers:
https://sites.google.com/site/dofastandwell/home/software/comparison-of-iphone-task-managers
The page has a link to a comparison chart.

And here's a topic in the Toodledo forums from over a year ago:
http://www.toodledo.com/forums/8/5793/0/comparison-of-iphone-ipad-toodledo-apps.html
Some of it is still relevant.

BTW, I remember now that I tried Taska but it was not very good at syncing with Toodledo, and it put various codes in the Notes section of some tasks.

And, here's a review of the iPad version of 2Do:

The official Toodledo app does not have that warning.

Okay, one more ...

I've used 2Do, Appigo's Todo, and the official Toodledo app.
I am currently using 2Do as my main task manager, and I use the Toodledo app to access "Recently Added" and "Recently Modified". I use Todo to access another Toodledo account that I use for a packing list.

I like the Todo interface but I don't like the way it syncs: too slow, too many fields missing, and too many errors.
I don't like the Toodledo interface but I like that it has most of the online features, and it syncs perfectly with the website.
I really like the 2Do interface, but that's not why I chose it. I want to track Projects (with multiple tasks) and 2Do is the best for that.

Hope that helps.

There have been many requests for multiple levels of subtasks in Toodledo. As far as I can tell, Toodledo has no immediate plans to implement this feature.

Here's a a fairly recent thread: http://www.toodledo.com/forums/2/1247/3/subtasks-only-go-down-one-level.html

You can find more by using the "Search this forum" function and specifying "Multiple levels" or "Subtask levels".
