One extra field, please, along with the ability to filter by that field: category or folder or type or something else.

I'd to categorize my habits into Personal, Work and Exercise so that I can view those habits (and only those habits) at the appropriate time and place.

Also, there are many other suggestions here New Section: Habits, but there have been no new features in the past two years.

We do this on purpose as a safety mechanism.
Several users have asked you to remove this counter-intuitive additional step. How many users have asked you to keep it?

Good to know, thanks.
For now, I'll stay with Todo and wait for the next version of the Toodledo app.

Here something else to look at: https://www.mylifeorganized.net/
It will do everything you want, but it's a bit expensive and there's no web version.

I also don't use the attachments, for the same reason. Instead, I copy links to the Google Drive files into Notes field. So I don't know if 2Do attachments can sync over to Toodledo.
I'm pretty sure that 2Do attachments (which can only be photos, not other file formats) do not sync with Toodledo. I was just wondering whether the syncing would result in an entry in Notes if there's an attached photo. But, you don't use attachments so no answer for now.
Checklists are supported, actually 2Do has two types - Projects where every subtask has it's own due date (like in Toodledo) and Checklists where they all have the same due date as the master task.
Appigo Todo has Projects and Checklists but, if I use one of those in the app, there's an annoying special comment in Notes in Toodledo after syncing. That special comment does not show up when viewing the task in Todo. I'm wondering how it works in 2Do.

Edited.

I've looked at practically every task/todo app that exists. :-0

I bought 2Do a few years ago and I looked at it again when you mentioned it in another topic.
I'm not thrilled with the overall look but it's not bad. I don't like swiping left and right to show and hide screens. Seems to be quite finicky on my iPhone.
It has a few more features than Todo (attachments, Smart Lists) but it doesn't have Contexts, which I use.

How is the syncing with Toodledo? It seems that you were having some problems.
How does the syncing handle features that aren't in Toodledo: Actions, Projects, Checklists and Photos?

It seems that you have everything pretty much under control.

I agree with some of your previous comments about the Toodledo mobile app. I don't like it and I don't use it. I've tried several third-party apps and I keep coming back to Appigo Todo which I started using shortly after the App Store was introduced in 2008. It's missing some of the features of Toodledo (e.g. it doesn't have any Saved Searches) but it syncs fine (as long as I am not also using the Toodledo app) and I like the look and feel of the app. (Nice big font, too.) They have their own online task manager but it is nowhere near as flexible and customizable as Toodledo's website, which is where I do most of my task management because most of my work involves being at a computer.

For now, that's the best I have to work with. I keep looking for something better and I used to be frustrated at Jake's inscrutable prioritization of software development, but then I accepted the fact that he's going to do what he's going to do, no what matter I say. He's running his business the way that he thinks is best. In any case, I keep regular backups of my data so that I can switch easily if I need to.

I keep oscillating between Toodledo and Outlook as my main task systems.
So do I and it's a bit frustrating.

Here's my suggestion: Keep it simple and realize that task management is more about the method than about the specific tool.
Just make sure that there's no madness in the method.

First, I want to apologize if my criticism of TD sounds harsh, this is certainly not my intent.
...
Quite honestly, this surprises me very much.
...
you're honestly catering to the wrong audience.
...
design limitations that - honestly - don't always make sense.
It seems that, despite your pseudo-apology, you want to continue your harsh criticism but you need to justify it because you are being honest.

From Nov 17, 2008:
files are not supported on the iPhone. Yet.

From Aug 6, 2009:
When our iPhone app does support file attachments, it will support all the file types that are natively supported by the iPhone, whatever that might be at that time. It is on our to-do list, but we are focusing right now on making the basic experience more stable and polished.

From Aug 4, 2010:
Attachments are not yet supported on the iPhone/iPad but they are on the to-do list.
I'm sure that, at some point, attachments will be available in the Toodledo mobile apps. Perhaps soon. We'll see.

When using repeating tasks, I find that postponing/deferring/altering the start or due dates can sometimes affect the future dates of the task when it repeats again, so this formula also avoids the hassle of that.
Good point!
Thanks.

the credit goes to the person that originally created ‘sleeper tags’ years ago to act like start dates
Why create something to act like start dates when there already is a Start Date field and there's the ability to filter by that field?
Just don’t modify the tagged tasks whilst hidden and it should work correctly.
If you use Start Date instead of Tags and Date Modified, it will work correctly. What are the advantages of your system that offset the greater complexity and fragility? I guess there's the ability to hide a task for a predefined number of days by adding a Tag. Is that it?

Good idea. This would provide a better way of allocating future time slots, especially if the feature is selectable per task, similar to how we can currently select whether a task repeats from the due date or from the completion date. Even better would be the option to select how far into the future the repeating task is displayed.

FWIW, Google Calendar is not a task manager, although some people use it as such. There's Google Tasks, without the ability to create repeating tasks, and there's Google Reminders. Neither one has the ability to assign priority or the other fields that are available in Toodledo.

Hmm ... the Note icon stays on the left no matter what I do with 'Show note icon on the left'. :-(

With a large screen and a wide browser window, it would be difficult to read Notes if the field was the full width.
(Newspapers and magazines have columns rather than having text across the entire page because it's easier to read a narrow column of text.)
In any case, it would be nice to have a Toodledo setting for the width of Notes.

For the Note icon, take a look here: https://www.toodledo.com/account_edit.php?edit=9 and unselect "Show note icon on the left".

Quote from Jake in 2010: Hiding future tasks according to Start Time
Hiding future tasks currently doesn't take the time into account, but we plan to implement this in a future update.
