Yes, task dependencies is also something that is on our to-do list. It is one of our more frequently received suggestions.

Yes, it is. See Subscription Details.

We do not have any immediate plans to make multi-levels of subtasks.

http://www.toodledo.com/forums/2/8119/-41741/read.html

Have the plans changed?

As I mentioned, I don't need to track everything that I did to prepare for my previous vacations so I don't use a template, but I might as well tell the whole story ...

I have a separate Toodledo account just for trips: vacations, business trips, and weekend visits with family.

I wanted to keep track of everything that I need to prepare and pack, and I wanted a separate list for my wife's items. (She has a Toodledo account that she uses for her day-to-day activities.) Also, I wanted to track the "essentials" -- those things that I need for every trip -- versus those things that depend on the nature of the trip and the season. For example, I need my sunscreen and swim trunks when I am going to Aruba on vacation, but I need my laptop computer and winter boots when I am going to Calgary for business in the winter. And, for longer trips, I wanted to keep track of where everything is packed: which suitcase and which smaller container (eg. toiletry case) in the suitcase.

I needed new contexts, folders and tags, and I found that it was too confusing within my regular Toodledo account. Much better with a separate account. Also, on my iPhone, I use the Toodledo app as my main task manager and I use the Appigo Todo app for trips, each app synced to a different Toodledo account. (Would have been nice to stick with just the Toodledo app but it doesn't handle two accounts simultaneously, and you can't have two instances of the same app on an iPhone.)

BTW, preparing for a trip is now much easier and less stressful. When first using this system, I still forgot a few items, but with each trip, the list got better, and now, when I am walking out the door at the start of the trip, I am confident that I haven't forgotten anything. It's amazing how many times in the past I forget something "obvious". Yeah, some things you can buy when you arrive at your destination but it can still be a nuisance.

And, as I said in my other post, I use the online Search and Multi-edit function to clear all my checked items at the end of the trip so I start with a fresh list of uncompleted tasks on my next trip. I can see, though, how some people would prefer to use a Template with subtasks and Clone the parent task to create a new list for each trip, and still keep the previously completed tasks.

Toodledo is a online task manager. There's nothing to load on your computer.

You can sync your iPhone with the Toodledo website. Here are the instructions:

I do something similar but I don't create subtasks -- I just assign all the tasks to the context "Vacation".

Also, I don't need to keep track of my preparation of previous vacations so, after the vacation, I use Search and Multi-edit to un-check all the Vacation tasks and now I have a fresh start for the next vacation.

I think that you will get duplicate records if you export, tidy up, and import. Not sure though.

You could export, delete all tasks -- http://www.toodledo.com/delete_tasks.php, tidy up, and import.

I notice though that you are a Pro Plus subscriber, so chances are you are using subtasks. Also, you probably have files that are linked to some tasks.

The CSV export (http://www.toodledo.com/connect_csv.php and which you would normally use for exporting to Excel) does not have subtask links. The subtasks get exported but you lose the connection to the parent task.

The XML export does preserve the subtask info but I'm not sure how easy it is to edit the file in Excel and maintain the subtasks. And there's still the issue of attached files.

Does Toodledo still show up in the Apps section of iTunes? If yes, then you just need to sync and Toodledo will be transferred to your iPhone.

But perhaps you didn't use the iTunes App Store to buy your app and instead you bought it directly from your iPhone and you haven't synced after the purchase. (If you sync with iTunes, any apps that you purchased on your iPhone will be copied to your computer and will show up in iTunes.)

In that case, you can still repurchase the app but you won't be charged again as long as you are using the same iTunes account that you used to buy the app the first time.

Are you using the Toodledo iPhone app?

If you are, the setting is "Sync on Start/Quit" and I'm pretty sure that the default is OFF.

Are you using the Appigo Todo app? It has the setting "Sync at Startup". Not sure what the default is. If you are using this app, then you need to contact Appigo.

BTW, you can avoid an automatic sync on startup if you disable your WiFi on your iPad before launching the app. (And Data Services if you have a 3G model.)

You say you've downgraded to Version 2.1, which means that you no longer have local reminders.

Okay.

On the website, though, the documentation is way behind.

When will there be a Help topic about Locations?

Hmmm ... you're right.

But there's no "Get Alerts" switch.

Seems to me that the Help info in the iPhone app is ahead of what's actually been implemented in the app. Unless both of us are missing something ...

BTW, I couldn't find any documentation about Locations in the website Help.

I don't use the Notebook, and yet there's an icon for the Notebook at the bottom of the screen in the Toodledo iPhone app. I can think of many choices that I would prefer for that prime screen location:
1. Hotlist
2. Starred items
3. Next Actions
4. Contexts
5. Recent items
6. Orientation lock

I'm sure that there other choices that some users would prefer over Notebook.

How about allowing the user to specify what shows up in the taskbar?

Location alerts?
Do you mean that you want your iPhone to alert you when you go to a location that has an active task?
Toodledo does not have this feature.

Alerts in Toodledo are based on the time interval that you specify before the Due Time.

Best to directly contact the makers of Pocket Informant or post on their discussion board.

Also, this thread should have been started in the Third-party applications forum.

I don't use Pocket Informant but I can tell you that I will not use any iPhone/iPad application to store vital information unless I'm absolutely convinced that the sync will be flawless. The only app that I've found that syncs perfectly with Toodledo is the official Toodledo app.

@Henrik, if you are using a Mac, there's OmniFocus which has hierarchical Contexts and I think that it has hierarchical tasks.

If you mean "desktop" vs "mobile", MLO has just submitted their iPhone app for review by Apple.

If you mean you want something that is web-based, Toodledo is the best online personal task manager currently available.

In a task list, I can "Sort by" various fields.

What is the logic of the order of choices?
Importance
Folder
Context
Distance
Location
Start Date
Due Date
Repeat
Length
Timer
Priority
Star
Tag
Status
Task/Subtask
Alphabetical
Date Added
Date Modified
Date Completed

How about having the choices listed alphabetically, similar to how it is on the iPhone app?

Also, any chance of having the sort order saved for each Tab rather than just for each View?
