That's right. The sort order for all Searches will be the same, regardless of the criteria.

Too bad. I think that the Searches would be much more useful if a sort order could be specified for each one.

Toodledo is a web-based application. All of the data is on the Toodledo server and not on your computer. (Unless you are using a third-party desktop application to sync with Toodledo.)

Any viruses on your computer will not affect the Toodledo data.

Interesting that you mention SplashShopper. It was the closest that I found to a workable checklist but it wasn't very good as a shopping list (not dynamic enough). The packing list was pretty good, but there was no online syncing, and the desktop syncing was incomplete and unreliable. Also, the tech support was not very good.

Too bad. It came close to what I wanted. For now, though, Toodledo is better, and I am using your suggestion about having a separate Toodledo account.

Yeah, I find that if it is a simple checklist that takes just a few minutes to review, then a note in the task is better than creating multiple subtasks.

For a packing list, I have too many items to track in a note so I use tasks (not subtasks) in a folder called "Packing". It's overkill to use Toodledo (with many fields that aren't necessary for a packing list) but I haven't found anything that does a better job. I would prefer just a simple packing list that has easy and reliable online sync from my iPhone.

The key characteristic of a checklist is that it isn't "necessary", in the sense that you already have all the info in your head (based on training and experience), and you can remember to do the items even without the checklist. Well, you can remember most of the items most of the time. The question, then, is: "What are the consequences if you don't remember one of the items?" If the consequences are seriously negative, and those consequences have already occurred several times in the past, then formulating and using a checklist is worthwhile, even if most of the time it seems that it is a waste of time.

Okay.
I've never encountered a syncing problem with the Toodledo app.
We'll need to wait for a suggestion from the developer.

First, are you using the Toodledo iPhone app or another iPhone app that syncs with Toodledo?

The Context is at the far right. Try maximizing your browser window and if that doesn't work then you'll have to scroll to the right.

Thanks.
I did delete the tasks today so I'll see what happens over the next few days.

When I am adding a task, I have several Tags showing up in the list of Tags but I can't find any tasks that have those tags.

I've tried finding them with a custom Search and they don't show up. (I used a Search with only one criterion: Tag is not "blank".)

Where are the tasks with those tags?

Also, am I right that Toodledo has no provision for deleting Tags from the Tag list other than to delete the tasks that have those Tags?

It seems that this should be easy in Toodledo (as well as going from a Task to a Note), but, nope, you can't do it directly.

You'll need to create a task and then copy and paste the Note into the task.

That's good.
But, I stopped using Todo after the Mac version really screwed up my tasks. Fortunately, I had a backup.
Also, I found the iPhone/iPad sync to be extremely slow compared to the Toodledo app.

No Start Date, Status, Location, or Goal.
No Reminder that is separate from the Due Time.
You can't filter by more than one Context.
You can't create your own sort order, based on a choice of three ascending or descending fields.
You can't use the Toodledo filters: Hide Negative Priority, Hide Future tasks, Hide Deferred tasks
There are no Recent lists: Recently Added, Modified, or Completed.

Sorry, too much missing, plus unreliable, incomplete, slow synchronization.

Maybe I have to order Pro account to get this things work or what?
Yes, that's right. You need a Pro subscription to use subtasks in Toodledo.

I read, if I upgrade to Pro account we can have multiple email accounts show up in the tasks and/or calendar in Toodledo.

The skin was designed for the previous version of Toodledo's website.

There was a major redesign of the Toodledo website, as outlined here:

According the Help topic here http://www.toodledo.com/info/help.php?sel=13

Be careful with deleting tasks, as there is no way to undelete them. If you accidentally deleted a task or think that a task was deleted by a third-party application, you can check your "Recently Deleted Tasks" list. This is located in your account settings at the bottom of the page.
The "Recently Deleted Tasks" used to be at the bottom of the Account Settings page. Now it's at the top left.

I did ask: What am I missing here?
I haven't done much website development. In desktop applications, it is easy to lock and unlock a form field in applications developed in at least three of the languages in Visual Studio.
The fact that your API allows the completion date to be modified makes it clear that there's no peculiar limitation in your database structure. You can display the field on the website but you can't make it editable. Is this a limitation of Ajax?

Anyway, I'm guessing that an explanation of the problem is quite technical and beyond the scope of this forum. I was just wondering.

Okay Jake, but what I missing here? I've done a lot of work with databases and input screens, and it is trivially easy to lock or unlock a field for editing.

It seems to me that you could make the required change in the time that it took you to compose your post. What is the issue that is holding you back?

Salgud, I guess it takes you longer than 5 seconds to type "Toodledo" ...
