Hi Peter.
Here's the idea: Outfit every task with a field called Subtasks, which is a list of zero or more IDs of child tasks. When displaying this field in any view, it renders as a list of the subtask titles, one per line, each of which can be clicked/tapped to replace the current task view with the child task.
This is the same idea that you presented in 2013 as a "half-baked proposal". Has it been out of the oven this entire time? ;-)

In traditional relational databases, each field contains one value per record. How will data be stored in your "Subtasks" field?
Or are you talking about another kind of database?

I want to organize my tasks for my goals into sub-goals and tasks off the sub-goals to have sub-tasks so I can have a daily set of action items in working towards my goals ( hierarchal structure)
Have you tried using the three levels of Goals?

Another alternative is to keep it simple and have just one level of tasks but two lists: Big picture tasks and specific tasks that contribute to the big picture..

Questions about how to use Toodledo should be in the Questions forum.

The first requests for viewing attachments in the iPhone app were in 2008: Viewing files on the iPhone.

Here's the answer to a more recent request: Image attachments iPhone app:
You can attach files when using Toodledo from your iOS browser. Implementing this in the iOS app is planned for the future, but we don't have an ETA, sorry.

Take a look at this topic: Making one task dependent on another.

In Linking Tasks by tasks that proceed another one, Jake says this:
We know that people really want task dependency so that tasks are automatically hidden if they are dependent on another task, and we do plan to build this. For me, it is much faster and more efficient to manage this manually with a weekly review that it would be to record all the complex inter-relationships between all my tasks.

I'm just adding my voice that I'd really like to be able to save views (specific sorting criteria at the minimum, different column arrangements if possible).
You can sort each view differently but you can't arrange the columns.

There's a Help topic: What is the hotlist?:
You can control what makes it into your hotlist by editing your account settings. You can pick a priority, status, star and a due-date leadtime. Any task with a priority greater than the priority that you have chosen will appear on your hotlist. Any task with a due-date within the leadtime that you selected will appear in your hotlist. If you have selected the star or status options, then those tasks will appear as well.

There is an exception to the above rule. Tasks with a future start-date will be hidden from the hotlist regardless of their priority, due-date, status or star.

How do I do an AND rule along with an OR rule?
The "OR" option becomes available when you click on the "+" sign to the right of an existing search field.

Jake, in your suggestion, "due date exists" is redundant. Due Date can't be before today unless Due Date exists.

Also, instead of having "Due Date is Today OR Due Date is before Today", you can use "Due Date is before Tomorrow",

The filter then becomes:
Starred = Yes
OR
Due Date is before Tomorrow

What do you prefer about the old version?
I think it's strange that the old version is still available.

A better link: https://xkcd.com/1172/
You get to view the mouseover, and there's a more obvious connection with https://xkcd.com.

BTW, it's funny and appropriate. :-D

Take a look at Date modifiers, specifically, "Optionally on":
You can also designate a task as optional (abbreviated with a "?"). This acts like "=", but if the date passes and you have not completed the task, the task will be automatically removed, or moved forward if it is a repeating task.

FWIW, take a look at Advanced Search and Batch Edit.

You can create shopping lists and delete all completed items.

Also, one of the main advantages of the paid (Silver) version is that you can create subtasks, which can make it easier to track a complex list of tasks.

Do you see anything that is still marked as "Beta" on the Toodledo website?

The beta version was launched on October 10, 2016: Toodledo Tasks redesign ready for public beta testing.
The new version was launched on March 7, 2017: The New Tasks Section.
It became available as the default version on May 19, 2017: New Tasks section can be the default now.

Also, no 3rd party mobile sync client is allowed to connect to our corporate Exchange account, and for all I know this is a pretty common policy. The best approach seems to be to use the native Reminders app as the sync conduit
If you can view your Exchange tasks in the Reminders app on your iPhone, then you're using a "3rd party mobile sync client".
there's no reason why Toodledo can't do it.
...
There's no reason why Toodledo developers couldn't come up with a similar way ...
Well, then: Good luck.

That's why I posted a link to TaskTask.

Yes, it is a "3rd party app" but, until Microsoft adds Tasks to their iOS Outlook app or they dramatically improve their To-Do app, TaskTask is your best option for syncing an iOS device with Outlook/Exchange Tasks.

Also, keep in mind that syncing between Outlook Tasks and Toodledo will require several compromises. What do you do with Outlook Categories, attachments, links and formatted notes? What do you do with Toodledo subtasks, Folders, Contexts, Tags, Locations, Goals and Stars? Probably you don't use all of those fields and features but any designer of an Outlook/Toodledo sync tool has to decide what to sync and what to ignore.

Because the majority of my tasks are work related, and many if not most are email driven, and I want to be able to easily and quickly create them from within Outlook and sync to my task manager.
But Outlook has a powerful task manager. What additional benefit do you get from using Toodledo along with Outlook instead of just using Outlook?

Edited: Sorry, I don't mean to put you in a position where you have to defend yourself. Obviously you have some good reasons for doing things the way you do. Just curious about those reasons.

The majority of desktops in the corporate environment run Outlook and Exchange, yet there's very little choice for syncing TD with it.
I can appreciate wanting to integrate Toodledo with Outlook but why in a corporate environment with Exchange?

When you mention "Reminders", I'm guessing that you're referring to the iOS app that can sync with Exchange.
There's a much more powerful app available. Take a look at: TaskTask.

From New Tasks section can be the default now:
For those who like the new Tasks section, it is now possible to make this the default section that you go to in Toodledo. If you want to do this, head over to your account settings and scroll down to the "Default Views" section where you can make the change.

Here's the relevant post by Jake from almost 6 years ago::
Personally, I hate it when websites spawn new windows. I much prefer for a link to open in the current window. There is a key that you can hold down on your keyboard when clicking to cause a link to open in a new window or new tab, based on your preference. So, the way it is now, you can have it both ways.

There is no key that you can press to make a link open in the current window that was going to open in a new window, so if we implemented the suggestion it would break it for all the people who want the link to open in the current window.

I suppose we could make this a user preference if there was enough demand, but I would suggest that you try the ctrl+click method. It is different for each browser and mac/pc, so it may not be ctrl+click for you.
Obviously, there isn't enough demand, according to Jake.

Even begging doesn't help:
Please please please!!!

Make links from task notes open in a new browser tab. It's really very annoying when I'm opening a link and all of a sudden it just replaces the ToodleDo window.
From Feb 10, 2015.
