Update - the 2Do - Toodledo sync only works if the 2Do app is open and you’re literally looking at it. Not a good solution. 2Do wants me to use Dropbox for real time/background updating but that would mean using 2Do instead of Toodledo which is not an option for me. Back to the drawing board....

Despite several posts over several years at this point, there is no update on the availability of an updated Apple Watch app/complication for Toodledo coming any time soon. All that I have been looking for is an Apple Watch app that would display my running list of Toodledo tasks for the current day, that's it. Having the ability to add/modify/delete/mark complete on the Apple Watch and have it update Toodledo would be a bonus, but not required from my standpoint.

I decided to put some serious time into looking at all of the possible alternatives. I have a piece of software that allows me to populate/synchronize Outlook and Google Tasks with Toodledo data, so there were a number of ways for me to come at this. I was basically looking for a to do list app that works on Apple Watch, then worked my way back from those solutions to see which if any could play with Toodledo, or one of the other apps to be populated and synchronized with Toodledo data.

I could not figure out how to make Any.do, Todoist, TickTick or Things to work for these purposes. Either the account required a premium membership to just to find out if it would even work, or the vendor states that they don't talk to this app or that app, or it didn't play with Windows (Things), or I could import data but not sync regularly, or it just flat out didn't work. I wasn't looking to spend money or do damage in the way of duplicate/lost data, luckily I was able to test those four solutions out pain free.

So what did work? 2DO. It's free, it was easy to set up, works like a charm, syncs regularly, and provides me with the daily list of tasks view on my Apple Watch that I was looking for. AND it syncs changes made on the Apple Watch (add/delete/modify/marked completed) with the actual Toodledo list, so that's an added bonus. Sold!

Bottom line - assuming that Toodledo won't be releasing an Apple Watch app/complication any time soon, 2DO is your best bet imho.

Just for kicks, I decided to check out both Tick Tick and Amazing Marvin. I guess I'm just used to the ease of use and layout of Toodledo, I like TD a lot better sorry. I've been a customer for a long time, but I only use it for the most basic of functions so I don't have too many complaints (APPLE WATCH!), aside from that as long as it keeps on ticking and doing what it does, I'm still happy.

I backup my current and completed tasks to CSV files every week via Toodledo download (Tools>Import/Export/Backup>CSV Import/Export). You can easily open up a CSV file in Excel.

Has anyone recently experienced missing tasks when comparing lists from computer to device etc.?

I've noticed this a few times now...I haven't narrowed it down to one time versus repeating tasks, or any other criteria. So far, it only happens on the Toodledo app for the iPhone, it doesn't affect the Toodledo app on the iPad, or any view on any computer of the Web page itself.

Right now I am looking at a list of five tasks remaining for the day. Four out of five of them are repeating tasks, and three out of those four are daily repeating tasks.

On the Web page I see five. On my iPad I see five. But on my iPhone I see four. I have tried manually shutting down the app on the iPhone, and rebooting the iPhone, I still see only four tasks. I can't see a way to logout of the iPhone app so I guess my only alternative is deleting then reinstalling? That's kind of a pain. I also double checked all the sort fields across devices, they are all the same.

Any idea what's going on?

Update - there are several IFTTT applets out there for creating tasks on Alexa that get copied to Toodledo tasks. Unfortunately, I don’t use folders or priorities, I have everything in one big list and I sort by date then by tags (01, 02, etc.). It works and I’ve been using that Toodledo setup for years. So IFTTT works but it adds the task to the very bottom of my task list of 450+ tasks, with no date and whatever tag I gave it. I need to figure out a way to modify this IFTTT applet to allow me to set a date, or just set it to default to today and then I can move it out until whenever.

Or Toodledo can do the work and make a proper integration between Alexa and Toodledo :)

Right now, in the Apple iOS environment, Siri can add tasks to iOS Reminders, which automatically get synced to Toodledo tasks via the Toodledo “Reminders Syncing” option.

I’m looking for the same kind of functionality with Amazon devices supporting Alexa. I want to ask Alexa to remind me about x, and somehow get x copied from Alexa’s reminders to Toodledo tasks.

I’ve seen a few requests in the forums on this one. It sounds like at least one user has successfully gotten this to work via IFTTT, I would be very interested in understanding how they did it, and I will try it on my own and post any successful results. I’m pretty sure I could do it using Alexa to populate Any.do, then have Any.do populate Toodledo via Zapier or similar integration solutions, but that would involve a lot of work, a lot of interim steps, and money.

I’m guessing that this one will be on the roadmap indefinitely, but I have to believe that I’m not the only one interested in getting Alexa to add tasks to Toodledo. Is there an official date for release of this feature by Toodledo? If not, has anyone come up with a way to do this?

Thanks.

I've seen a dozen posts on this topic in forums, and I remember reading something from someone at Toodledo posting in these forums or release notes that it was on the roadmap or in process, but I've heard nothing since. And I see no new posts on the subject.

This is an important one. Looks like a few people have actually left Toodledo for competitive products because of it. I would never do that, love Toodledo, but I do need an Apple Watch 4 Toodledo app. Btw, I tried 2Do for a while but it didn't update correctly, so I'm done with it.

What's the story? Is this really going to be happening any time soon?

Purveyor, the 2DO solution works great for me, thanks again.

Not only can I see a running list of my Toodledo tasks for the day on my Apple Watch's 2DO app, but 2DO has a little graph that you can set up on the main screen (they call it a watch face complication) that actually shows your progress towards completing all of your tasks for the day. Very satisfying.

I was really knocking my head against the wall trying to find a solution here. Initially I wound up using GSyncit to sync my Toodledo tasks to Outlook, then Outlook up to Google Tasks, then using an app called Gtasks to display on the Apple Watch. Worked fine initially, then crashed Toodledo all over the place on every computer and device I had, and created multiple dupes that I had to manually go in and delete, took hours, nightmare.

The 2DO setup was a cinch, immediately started populating everything and displaying on both the iOS apps on my devices as well as the Apple Watch. The only drawback that I've seen so far is that updating the queue sometimes takes a while, but that's fine.

Not sure so don't quote me but I believe that I have correctly tested this and I'm pretty sure that it works both ways - I can add, delete, modify, etc. on 2DO and it will update Toodledo, and vice versa. Without machine language, dupes, crashes, etc. So far :)

You know what would make all of this a lot easier? An actual Toodledo app for the Apple Watch 4 :)

Thanks again for heads up on 2DO Purveyor, I really appreciate it.

Purveyor, appreciate the suggested apps that sync with Toodledo. Did I spell that right this time? :) I think that you've been around as long as I have, wasn't it ToodleDo way back when and then it changed to Toodledo when the logo changed? In any case, my bad, thanks for pointing that out. And thanks again for the response.

Just got an Apple Watch 4, and there’s no ToodleDo app for it. Yet. It sounds like it’s on somebody’s roadmap at ToodleDo but it involves a complete rewrite of an app that was done for older Apple Watch models. So, I’m not going to hold my breath.

Looking into alternatives, specifically, other apps like ToodleDo that have corresponding Apple Watch apps that I can somehow populate and sync on a regular basis with ToodleDo. For example, I have an application called GSyncit which will sync tasks between ToodleDo and Outlook, but then I need to find an Apple Watch app that will manage Outlook Tasks, no luck so far.

To be clear, I am NOT switching from ToodleDo, I love ToodleDo. This is the ONLY functionality missing off of the Apple Watch that I am really missing. And I don’t even care about the ability to add, delete, modify etc ToodleDo tasks, I just want to be able to see a running list of my ToodleDo tasks for the day on the Apple Watch. That is all.

Aside from waiting for the ToodleDo team to release a new Apple Watch app, does anyone out there have any other ideas?

Thanks.

Back in 2011, I created a feature request to send email notifications out when someone replied to a forum post that was on my watchlist. The answer back then was, no, so 8 years later I thought it might a good one to ask about it again. This is very standard functionality for basically every newsgroup that I participate in. Apple Communities, for example, sends me an email whenever somebody posts a reply to a topic that I am watching. With ToodleDo, I either have to guess that someone replied to a post, or just check often. That's silly. Apologies if somehow I'm missing something but I have never received an email telling me that someone posted on a watched ToodleDo Forum topic. This can't be that difficult, please reconsider including this functionality in a future update. Thank you.

OK, I just rechecked...the identifier is in fact, the date. Well, it's sort of the date.

Today's completed, current, notebook csv exports are stamped with "190314" at the end of the file names. I'm guessing that somewhere that is a format that makes sense as a date, but not in the US. Is it possible to rearrange those digits so that they provide the "correct" or more popular date format of "031419" instead?

Please.

Please scratch my last post - I can see that this change has already been made in production. It would have been more productive for my personal purposes as a simple date stamp at the end of the file name (i.e. completed.csv 31419) but I've waited SO long for this enhancement, I'm definitely fine with the simple random numeric identifier. Thanks for finally listening to me :)

Wow, that's great news on being pushed to production. Thanks for the update. Do you have an estimated time frame as to when this will be a deliverable? I'm assuming that this will be an enhancement that is available in the free product, please let me know if that is not the case. Thanks.

Please see the other Question about this exact same issue in the Forum, titled "Page reload when task completed".

Purveyor provides a easy to understand, simple solution to follow, in terms of completed tasks disappearing when the page automatically refreshes. Basically, you've got to modify your default settings to use the newer version of tasks (task.toodledo.com), which gives you a slightly different look and feel, but it grays out completed items, puts a line through them, but otherwise leaves them alone until you choose to refresh the page.

Purveyor's post is spot on, easy to follow, and works like a charm. Follow the link to modify the settings, choose the new version under Tasks, wah lah. You've got to deal with the new look and feel, but no more automatic page refreshes. It behaves like before -- it grays completed tasks out and sticks a line through them, otherwise they are left alone until I choose to refresh the page. Thanks for posting Purveyor.

I just noticed the same thing and I have the same response. I like getting that last look at all of my completed tasks before hitting "refresh" to get rid of them and get a new view of uncompleted tasks. Moreover, every once in a while, I check off a task by mistake, forget which one it was, have to unhide completed tasks and search for it, etc., etc. This new functionality should be optional.

NOTE - this is the third request for this enhancement. I made the original request in April 2014, then again in May 2015, and now with the new management in place, I'm hoping to finally get a positive response. The old topic was locked for discussion, nobody seems to have any interest in this functionality but me, but I keep asking. Is there any chance that this will ever get done?

-- The backup utility assigns a unique numerical code to each backup, so I don't have to manually change the file name each time I save it to the same backup location on my hard drive.

-- The export utilities for completed and uncompleted tasks, as well as notebook exports, do not assign any sort of unique identifier, so I have to manually insert the date at the end of the file each and every time (i.e. "toodle-current4114.csv").

-- Any thoughts to assigning some sort of identifier, preferably the date, to these three export files?

-- Yes, I save all three export files as well as the backup .xml file each week. I recognize that the .xml file includes everything, but in a pinch, I can load up .csv files in Excel for any missing tasks, old notebooks, etc.

Please advise, thanks.
