@Salgud, you're way out of line here.

Do you mark every task as complete the instant that you complete it? Have you never noticed later in the day or on the following day that a task was completed even though you hadn't checked it off? In other words, have you never made a mistake that you would like to correct?

And, to answer the question by Folke X: It can be very useful to know how long it took to complete a task and you can't do that correctly unless the completion date is correct. Some people even get paid based on how long it takes to complete a project. The documentation of the dates and times for that project consists of more than what's in Toodledo but it's nice to have those dates and times in Toodledo to review, analyze and submit. One of the important dates is the Date Completed. If this date is wrong, then any report or analysis based on that date will be wrong. What do you do if the date is wrong? You correct it, right? Except that for some bizarre reason, Toodledo doesn't allow this field to be edited.

Hope that helps.

It is really possible because of the way that the internet works:
Edit files remotely
With SugarSync your changes sync back to your computer automatically. Forget to leave your computer on? No worries! You have full access to all of your synced files even when your computers are offline, so you can edit your files from anywhere. The next time your computer connects to the Internet, all the changes you made in your SugarSync website sync back to the cloud and to your other devices automatically.

And, it is possible to save a file directly from Word to the internet, if you use Word 2010:
Save a document to your Skydrive from Office 2010

Posted by Salgud:
I mean that my mail client (Mail) won't accept the TD email address that I can use to send tasks to TD. It's says the SMTP server can't send it. But it sends everything else just fine.
Sorry, I thought I had a suggestion but I got nuttin'. :|
The situation does seem strange.

You need to install the Analysis Toolpak to use the EDATE function.
But do you really want to move a task exactly one month into the future? If not, you can just add a number of days to a date with a formula like =a1+ 28 (which will keep the Due Date on the same day of the week).

kaeldra, with only 15 to 20 tasks, you're better off just editing the tasks individually. This will probably take less time than an export/import, and less likely to result in some major errors, and it will preserve the original entry date. Even the Multi-Edit function is probably too much work for a small number of tasks that require different dates.

Edited to add:
Do you really need dates for the subtasks? Something to think about.

I'm guessing that Salgud means OS X rather than IOS.

He mentions "iMac" and "Mac" two times each, and he seems to be answering your question "What email client do you use on your Mac?"

Salgud, what do you mean that you can't send a TD email to your TD account from your iMac at home? Your Toodledo account isn't on your computer -- it's on Toodledo's website and you access it from your computer.

Are you saying that when you click on the Actions icon in your task list and select "Email task" you get an error?
Or are you trying to use Mail to send a task to your Toodledo account?

How many subtasks do you want to change?

You can try the Search and Multi-Edit feature: http://www.toodledo.com/info/search.php
You can use "Is subtask" as one of the search criteria.

Also, if you export/import, you can make whatever changes you want in Excel, and even create a formula to change the dates, so the due dates don't have to be the same.

Keep in mind that when you import, there's no checking for duplicates, so you'll have to delete the old tasks. Also, the Date Created and Date Modified fields will be set to the date that you imported the tasks.

Here's the article in The New Yorker that formed the basis for the book by Dr. Atul Gawande: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2007/12/10/071210fa_fact_gawande

And here's an example of a checklist that had dramatic results:
Doctors are supposed to (1) wash their hands with soap, (2) clean the patient’s skin with chlorhexidine antiseptic, (3) put sterile drapes over the entire patient, (4) wear a sterile mask, hat, gown, and gloves, and (5) put a sterile dressing over the catheter site once the line is in. Check, check, check, check, check. These steps are no-brainers; they have been known and taught for years. So it seemed silly to make a checklist just for them. Still, Pronovost asked the nurses in his I.C.U. to observe the doctors for a month as they put lines into patients, and record how often they completed each step. In more than a third of patients, they skipped at least one.
...
Pronovost and his colleagues monitored what happened for a year afterward. The results were so dramatic that they weren’t sure whether to believe them: the ten-day line-infection rate went from eleven per cent to zero. So they followed patients for fifteen more months. Only two line infections occurred during the entire period. They calculated that, in this one hospital, the checklist had prevented forty-three infections and eight deaths, and saved two million dollars in cost.
...
The checklists provided two main benefits, Pronovost observed. First, they helped with memory recall, especially with mundane matters that are easily overlooked in patients undergoing more drastic events. (When you’re worrying about what treatment to give a woman who won’t stop seizing, it’s hard to remember to make sure that the head of her bed is in the right position.) A second effect was to make explicit the minimum, expected steps in complex processes.

You can Sort by the hidden fields: "Date Added", "Date Modified", "Date Completed".

When you sort by any of these fields, they become visible.

Unfortunately, Toodledo will not do what you want.
Only one instance of a repeating will show up.

There's a possible solution but I think that it will be too difficult to implement and maintain, especially if you have several repeating tasks that you want to view in your weekly list. Instead of a daily task, you could create several weekly tasks, eg. one that repeats on Monday, the next on Tuesday, etc. Then you could view multiple tasks in the future but they would, in essence, be the same task on a different day. I'm not suggesting that this will work for you but it is one option.

You can reorder Subtasks:
It is possible to manually reorder subtasks via drag and drop. This is a feature for Pro Subscribers. To use this, you must first go into your account settings and under "Subtasks" enable manually sorting. Now, you can drag and drop subtasks into the order of your choosing and the sorting criteria discussed above will be ignored.

BTW, where did you get the quote from Toodledo support?

Here's another topic with the same issue:
http://www.toodledo.com/forums/2/12324/0/what-is-this-appointment-on-the-toodledo-calendar.html

Here's the answer from Toodledo:
"This is a bug with Google Calendar. If you are using our Toodledo Google Calendar gadget, there is no way for us to add events directly to your calendar. The fact that multiple people are seeing the same event suggests that it is a Google problem. Please contact Google for assistance.

"Also, you might experiment with disabling the Toodledo gadget and see if the task goes away. I suspect that it won't."

The iPod/iPhone/iPad Toodledo app does not support sharing of tasks with another user.

You can both share one account and access it from two devices (and use Context, Folder, or Tags to assign and filter tasks) but each of you will have access to all tasks.

Isn't this most likely a matter of having two different sets of Filters? For example, Toodledo online is filtering out future tasks, but the iPad is not.

What makes this a bit more confusing is that Toodledo online allows a different set of filters for each View (eg. Main, Folders, Context) but on the iPad, the filters are the same for all Views.

Also, online the option to filter is identified by the menu item "Show", but on the iPad it's "Hidden Tasks".

In Toodledo, you can view/review tasks that you've assigned to another user. You just can't do it at the same time as viewing your own tasks.
