From the Help topic How do repeating tasks work?
Monthly: It will repeat on the same day of the month (eg., every 16th). It is important to note that if you repeat a monthly task on the 30th or 31st, it will skip over months that do not have that date. For example, a monthly task due on Jan 31 will skip to March 31st because there is no Feb 31st. If you need to repeat a task at the end of the month, we recommend having it due on the 1st of the following month with a 1 day reminder or start-date.
What's missing is the ability to specify a task that repeats on the "last day of the month".

And, since Jake is no longer here:
"Thanks for the suggestion. We do not comment on timeframes for implementation, but this is on our to-do list."
:-D

FWIW, the Terms and Conditions have been changed. The page is available from a tiny link at the bottom of the subscription page.

In the first paragraph, it says this:
TOODLEDO MAY MAKE CHANGES TO THE CONTENT OFFERED ON THE SERVICE, AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE, AND TOODLEDO CAN CHANGE THESE TERMS AT ANY TIME. IF TOODLEDO CHANGES ANY OF THESE TERMS, TOODLEDO WILL POST THE UPDATED TERMS ON THE SERVICE. TOODLEDO MAY ALSO SEND REGISTERED USERS THAT HAVE SUBMITTED THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS A NOTICE OF THE CHANGE TO THESE TERMS. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SERVICE AFTER SUCH CHANGES HAVE BEEN POSTED ACKNOWLEDGES YOUR AGREEMENT TO THE NEW TERMS. THEREFORE, YOU SHOULD CHECK THE TERMS OF USE POSTED ON THE SERVICE PERIODICALLY FOR UPDATES AND CHANGES.

For anyone who is wondering about the popularity of various online task managers, there's Alexa website traffic statistics.

For example:
Toodledo
Remember The Milk
Todoist

And, for comparison:
Evernote
Slack

And one more difference: Todoist is allowing free users to upgrade now to a paid subscription at the current price of $29 per year before the price increases on December 1.

When Toodledo announced that the price will increase in 2019 for renewing subscriptions, the price for new subscribers was immediately increased to $60/year for Silver and $90/year for Gold.

Another minus for RTM that I just remembered:
...
It also doesn't have these fields ...
Earlier in this topic I summarized the main differences between Toodledo and RTM:

It says it interfaces with Outlook, but I don't know if that means Outlook tasks or Outlook calendar. I need an interface with Outlook calendar. I need an interface with Outlook calendar. I'm wondering if I can configure my Google account so that it subscribes to my Outlook calendar and gets RTM tasks so that I can see if I'm scheduling a task on an already busy day without switching tabs to look at a calendar and then my task manager.
RTM syncs with Outlook Tasks.
Check out the Synchronization section in MilkSync for Microsoft Outlook.

And Google Calendar.

Okay, I have a question, and it's about this:
By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data), generally for seven years after a transaction for tax purposes.
Which law says that you have to keep that information "generally for seven years"?

Thanks. I was wondering about the old policy which, BTW, said this:
If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page, and notify our users, so that our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

There's a new Toodledo Privacy Policy, effective October 22, 2018.

There are several references to using customer data for advertising and marketing.

Edited: No question here. Just useful information.

Then for a good while there will be at least 7 different functionalities between the users.
Yup, that's interesting.
There's pricing and there's functionality. I suppose it's not too difficult to have the system keep track of both and adjust a user's access accordingly. Seems though that it would be simpler if there were just one free plan and three paid plans, with paying users continuing their current subscription with a new plan that has all of the features of their current plan. Then, when the subscription expires, the price will change to be the same as it is for new subscribers.

In any case, I thought that the one-week limit for the Standard Plan (at $36/year) was a mistake. It makes no sense to pay $60/year just to get task history longer than one week. But, Aaron has responded (after several comments about the one-week limit) and he didn't say anything about it.

Toodledo team, can you please answer to this thread?
That's part of the problem. There's been practically no support in the forums since the new owners took over.

I think that they're just bumbling around and they don't really know what they're doing.

The old prices are still available if I go to My Subscription but, if I'm not logged in (using another browser), the subscription page shows the new prices for the current plans.

Hopefully there will be some serious "re-thinking" of these decisions, before it's too late if it isn't already too late.
I think that the pricing will be revised to include something like the current Silver subscription for $25 to $30 per year, and perhaps $50 to $60 for the top tier, along with a reduced feature set for the free plan. It would be nice gesture if current paying subscribers could continue their service for one more year at the current price.

This would lead to a significant gain in revenue: more money from current subscribers and some additional income from those free users who are now willing to pay 8 cents a day for some features that make their lives easier. Based just on price (and some actual feature improvements in the next few months), there should be relatively few users jumping ship.

The problem is dealing with the negative feelings (disappointment, anger, lack of trust) towards the new owners. Not only will it result in lost subscribers, it will interfere with "spreading the word" about how great Toodledo is.

Funny that you mention IQTELL - I was also a very early user of that service, and thought it could potentially be the ultimate productivity tool. I had a similar reaction to what is happening here when IQTELL announced their way too high pricing (in my opinion) for the service when it came out of beta. I thought a better strategy for them would have been to offer a reasonable plan that would increase the number of users and allow them to build a successful business. Instead, they had the arrogance to assume that all of their beta users would absorb a cost that was way more than the market would bear. A couple of years later, they unceremoniously shut down. Obviously, their strategy was flawed, and I see that same level of arrogance here, and I suspect this will bring about the same end result.
Interesting article: Why I went from IQTell to Todoist.

There's an opportunity for Toodledo to do what IQTell attempted. Something worth paying for.
