Posted Sep 13, 2017 in: Task to Note Conversion Feature

I'm not sure if this already exists, or if anyone else has ever suggested it, but I had an idea for basic users such as myself.

In my daily use of ToodleDo, many times an existing Task will grow arms and legs. When it becomes too much for one line, I'll start attaching and editing a note until I have all of this information in a Task that I have now cut and paste manually to create a note from.

Not sure if it's even possible or how hard/costly it would be to implement, but it would be nice to have an option to just "convert to note". I could edit or dress it up once it made it over to Notes, but at least it wouldn't be lost when you checked it off as a completed task, then you have to unhide completed tasks and go looking for it, etc.

Just a thought, thanks.

Just like the title says, I am posting a bug report on the latest version of the iOS app, it is clearly hanging up all over the place.

Examples include, but are not limited to:

- Extended period after checking off task before you can make any other selection
- Screen will freeze up and any function you select will be delayed
- Scrolling is frozen until control lets up from the last task selected
- Non or delayed response to selected items, resulting in erroneous selections, clicking several screens ahead, etc.
- App freezing up while typing, or waiting for characters to appear at a snail's pace after typing them

You get the idea.

I would say that it was limited to just me but my wife is experiencing the exact same thing, and she has a different iPhone, uses ToodleDo completely different than me, we have different groupings and totals of tasks, notes, etc.

I'm willing to bet that someone else is experiencing the same thing. Started recently, so I'm guessing that there was a recent update.

Please fix, thanks.

Jake, thanks for the response. Your explanation of the scrolling issue makes perfect sense. I just tried it again and it didn't happen, I was able to rapidly scroll up and down without issue. Unfortunately, folders just won't work for my needs, I did try them and actually I do make use of tags and categories but I get the most out of ToodleDo by simply reviewing all tasks, which I sort by tag, priority and due date. That's fine for me and has been fine for years. I'll make do with whatever the new ToodleDo offers, and I will continue to shoot updates on any bugs as I see them. All the best, thanks again.

I know that I have asked this same question in the past, and I can't help wondering - why not?

Most forums that I belong to send you a notification message via email when someone has replied to either your post, or anyone else's post in the forum, depending on how it is set up, and obviously if you are watching/following that particular discussion.

It is very difficult to remember to go in and check each and every discussion that I am watching or following. This is probably something to reconsider down the road, it's a great helpful feature for the user base that actively supports ToodleDo.

Hi Jake:

1.) I don't have keyboard shortcuts enabled. Your tip for clicking on the "All Tasks" category up top does work and refreshes, but it's an extra keystroke. It would be great if you could bring back that original functionality from the previous version. I keep forgetting then hitting F5 as a temporary measure.

2.) I did not know about the double click trick, that works, at least for me. Again, I don't need to set any times, alarms, etc. but I'm an exception to the ToodleDo rule (aka a to do list simpleton), as you know.

3.) The only way for me to show you the issue would be to video via iPhone and send you Dropbox link or something. A picture will not really show the issue. Let me know if you would like to go that route.

I am using Google Chrome.

Thanks.

It's probably just me and a matter of getting used to it, but so far I've been playing around with the new layout from a basic usage perspective as I always use ToodleDo. The new layout looks nicer, but overall the old layout is more user friendly. That's my opinion, sorry. Not that I would imagine ToodleDo is ever going to stand still and remain the same even if it worked perfectly fine before it was "broken", but the old version was fine, sorry.

Trying to get used to the new layout, I think I like it but I'm not sure yet.

Three definite issues:

1.) In the previous version, after adding a task, if I hit the "All Tasks" button out to the left, it would refresh the screen. Now it doesn't do that. It actually doesn't do anything. If I want to refresh, I have to F5 etc. Not sure if that is correct or not.
2.) When adding a new task, regardless of what date I select (today, tomorrow, etc.), I have to click outside of that pop up calendar dialog in order to get back to a place where I can see/edit/add the task. That's definitely not right. When I click on a date, it should immediately go back to the previous main add task dialog.
3.) Something very flukey/funky about scrolling up and down my entire list of tasks. I have a lot of them granted, and they are not organized into folders, they are all in one place. When I use the sidebar tool to scroll up and down, down in particular, it keeps popping up on me and not letting me go down all of the way. I have to continuously push that sidebar tool down to see more and more of my list. If I slowly let it digest a few tasks, I can work my way down my entire list, same for going back up. That's not good.

My one request - the addition of the three items to the left of each task really pushes the whole task to the right significantly. And those three things are not customizable. Maybe they can be in a future release.

I do like some of the other function movements and layout changes. But no, I am seeing absolutely no increased speed in refresh rates or the like, as was alluded to in the quick advertisement for the new version when I switched over.

Thanks.

Update - this is a SPORADIC problem. Sometimes shutting down and restarting ToodleDo will fix this problem. Sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes that problem doesn't happen at all, and then it pops up again. Curious as to whether anyone else is experiencing it? Maybe I need to reinstall ToodleDo on my iPad, or something has cropped up in terms of compatibility with iOS10 or something?

When viewing ToodleDo Tasks on an iPad in either landscape or horizontal mode, the left most option in the bottom toolbar is the last option selected along the top left toolbar (i.e. All Tasks, Hotlist, Folder, etc.). When you first fire up the application, you have one option in that left hand corner, but as you select additional options, they just lay on top of each other in a big unreadable mess. I don't actually understand the need for having that option in the farthest left hand corner at all, as it does not appear in the lower toolbar on my iPhone. Nevertheless, if it's meant to be there, it's not looking or working correctly, it's a bug. Either for me, or for everyone. Thanks.

NEVER MIND. I added a column and the toolbar dropped off to the right. I just had to scroll over to the right. DUH. Sorry.

Further clarification - for TASKS. Any TASK view that I pull up now has no right side scrolling control toolbar. NOTES has one on the left. The forums have them in the right place on the right. But I can't seem to pull one up in any task view. Help.

I am using the Web version of ToodleDo on a Windows 7 computer running the most current version of Chrome.

Pardon my terminology as I try to describe a very basic Web page function...I would call it, a scrolling sidebar toolbar, that is usually on the far right, that you drag with your mouse up and down to scroll up and down a Web page, as opposed to using up and down arrow buttons repeatedly to accomplish the same function.

Every page on the Web that I use has this scrolling sidebar toolbar. I THOUGHT that ToodleDo had it too, but as of this morning, it doesn't, or it never had it but I never noticed it, or ToodleDo on Chrome has a new bug? I have no idea.

This is a must have. What am I missing here? Please help, thanks.

I am as guilty as the next ToodleDo user of only using these forums when I've got a problem, or need something, instead of taking a moment now and then to acknowledge what a fantastic application the folks behind ToodleDo have created, enhanced, and continue to greatly support.

I've been a ToodleDo user for seven years now. I started using ToodleDo as a replacement for Palm, strictly for tasks and notes. Seven years later, I use the full extent of what ToodleDo offers in a non-Pro account, but still only for tasks and notes. Very simple stuff. And I have zero complaints, zero, the application on both the Web side and the iOS app are just fantastic for what I use them for. Look and feel is a personal opinion, I personally like the current look and feel, and I've been amazed at how quickly ToodleDo has responded with just a few users stepping up to ask for something that didn't look or work right, in a very short window.

It's a testament to the people behind ToodleDo that they choose to listen to their users, and use their input to continuously improve and expand upon ToodleDo with functionality like Outlines, Lists, Habits, etc. At the same time, they continue improving the basics and keeping them at the forefront of the application. I don't have to struggle to get through anything that I don't want to use, in order to get to what I do want to use. And this is no easy task, no pun intended, given the fact that whoever is piloting the ToodleDo ship has to balance a never ending list of requests from all sorts of users, most of which are looking to do a LOT more with ToodleDo than I currently do. I can't imagine how they do it, but from my selfish perspective, they do it very well, Looks great, works great, OK please don't change anything else now, ever :)

Seriously, a heartfelt thanks and note of acknowledgement to the folks behind ToodleDo. My first, and still my very favorite app, where I start my days and how I keep them organized throughout. Thank you ToodleDo.

I've made this request twice, once in April 2014, and again last May. The topic is once again locked for discussion, nobody seems to have any interest in this functionality but me, so this will be my last repeated request I promise. 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 location.

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 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.

After several months of using Siri to dictate notes to IOS reminders and onto ToodleDo, I am convinced that this is truly one if not the single best integrated feature of Toodledo. I use it each and every day. It is basic, reliable, convenient and safe in terms of hands free operation while driving. Thank you very much for developing and releasing this functionality to the Toodledo base.

Saw the changes this morning, THANK YOU! Love the left side orientation on the new buttons, THANKS AGAIN, for both listening and quickly making the changes. Years and years of great use and support, still my favorite and everyday go to app, don't know what I'd do without it. I know that ToodleDo has grown leaps and bounds over the years, a lot of great new functionality that I will probably never use, but when it comes to a basic robust fully functional to do list with all sorts of capabilities offered with just a Basic account, plus Notes, no one even compares. And ToodleDo the company behind the product has always listened and somehow balanced out the needs and wants of the uber crazy over the top users with the basic ones such as myself. I don't know how you do it but I thank you. Again :)

In line with the "Hey Siri" handsfree operation of the iPhone, has there been any thought or is it even possible to think about tighter integration between ToodleDo and Siri/iOS handsfree operation? Specifically, it would be great to add a task on the road without so much as touching let alone looking at my iPhone which is a no no while driving obviously. Right now, I am using "Hey Siri" and the iPhone's Reminder functionality to add a reminder, which I have to review later and add to my ToodleDo list. I'd love to cut the middleman out in this process, anything in the works?
