j2020, I was really looking for a response back from someone at ToodleDo, or someone who could actually respond back with something of substance, versus an opinion on how long a post should be, or how much money I should be willing to spend. The truth of the matter is, if there was one feature in Pro that warranted the expense from my perspective, I would have signed up for it a long time ago. I've been using ToodleDo for years, it made it possible for me to switch from Palm to iPhone way back when, it is still my Number One app, I absolutely love ToodleDo, and I would gladly donate to help the cause as appropriate. I know and understand the functionality in Pro, and I really don't want Pro. It's overkill for my needs. Seriously. I like Basic. If they started charging for Basic, I would pay the money. I'm not paying $14.95 a year just to get a third sorting criteria that I don't want or need, just so ToodleDo looks the same across devices and the Web site. That's a Pro feature on the Web site. So I'm suggesting that it should either be removed from the iOS app, or added to the site for Basic. My post had a purpose, sorry if you think that I'm cheap or longwinded, you ought to focus on posts that you can provide a real answer to, and save your opinions for other forums that warrant them.

This latest iOS app update requires that you sort on three criteria, there is no way to just select two. The ToodleDo Web site still only offers two sort criteria unless you go Pro, I am Basic, no need or intentions of going Pro. The end result is that no matter what I do, my ToodleDo lists on my iOS devices are out of order when compared to the Web site.

This is a problem.

A couple of potential fixes would be 1.) remove the third sort criteria from the iOS app unless you are a Pro subscriber; 2.) add a "None" option under at least the third if not all three sort criteria in the iOS app; or 3.) provide a third sort criteria as part of the basic functionality on the Web site.

Whatever ToodleDo chooses to do here, the key thing is to offer the same functionality on both the Web site and iOS app, so that task lists sort exactly the same no matter where you are viewing/editing them.

Follow up question - as a short term solution until ToodleDo offers a way to get rid or hide these priority marks, is there a way to globally select hundreds of tasks at one time then mark them all top priority? That would make it a little less distracting, at least as a short term interim fix.

Agreed. Total waste of time and more importantly, a big waste of valuable space. We do not need a quick add task bar at the top of an iOS app.

Surprise, surprise, I fire up ToodleDo on the iPhone and there is a major, unexpected update. The previous version was fine, perfect, but apps always need "improving", I understand.

I took me a WHILE to get the iPhone setup close to what I had before. But the priority feature is really annoying me. I don't use priorities, I use either alphabetical or numerical tags to order my to do list for any given day. It's a lot easier to manage than trying to figure out if something is low, medium or high priority then missing something in the shuffle of a busy day.

I actually don't need a third sort criteria, but no matter what I set the three of them to (right now, they are sorted on due date, tag, then tag again), I still wind up seeing those new priority marks in the top left corner of every task. Yellow or orange, very distracting, annoying and unnecessary.

How do I get rid of them?

TOPIC CLOSED - as soon as I finished typing this, my wife said to me "why don't you just start with 01, 02, etc." guess what? That works. Thanks anyway! Now it IS perfect.

As always, let me preface by saying that ToodleDo is THE reason why I was able to switch from Palm to iPhone way back when, and it continues to be my top app. Number One. I use the app and the Web page each and every day, both are fantastic, cannot imagine life without them.

One thing that might make life a little bit easier for me personally, and might affect others who are doing this as well...I use the Tag column as a means of sorting tasks in the order that I want to complete them any given day. The only issue with that is, I'm a busy guy, and beyond 10 tasks, I wind up using letters to sort for that day versus numbers. BECAUSE after 10, if you use 11, 12, 13, they wind up sorting next to the 1, not the 10. It's a problem, but I'm wondering if this is an easy fix for the developers at ToodleDo? No problem for me using letters instead of numbers until I hit days with repeating tasks where I've already used numbers (numbers take priority over letters btw).

I've got ToodleDo down exactly where I like and need it to be, this is about the ONLY thing that would make it perfect.

Thanks for listening.

Posted Jan 04, 2012 in: VPN suddenly blocking ToodleDo access?

Years of issue free use of the ToodleDo Web interface on all of my computers just further backs up the fact that there is NOTHING like ToodleDo. Love it, can't imagine personal or business life without it.

Of course, my company is conspiring against my attempts to keep organized on their behalf. All of a sudden, since yesterday (first day back in the new work year), it appears as though VPN is blocking ToodleDo somehow or someway. I get the left side navigation menus and top buttons, but the content in the middle doesn't load up. Takes forever and then I get the following message:

Network Error (tcp_error)
A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.

For assistance, contact your network support team.


Of course when I disconnect from VPN, the problem goes away. So it's either the corporate VPN police have decided that ToodleDo is a risky site, or ToodleDo has done something to itself to make it not play nice with VPN, or both. Either way, I need to resolve this, and fast.

This is a MAJOR problem for me. I can't keep connecting/disconnecting from VPN on my work computer all day long just to update/access ToodleDo. Is my recourse through my company, or has something changed on ToodleDo's end that makes it not play nice with VPN?

Please let me know who I get to scream at on this one :)

Thanks.

UPDATE 1-5-12 -- a reboot and selection of a different VPN server seems to have resolved the issue. Go figure.

Another request...the option to swap positions between folders and tasks/notebook/organize/tools, etc. Obviously the positions have reversed, it's a little bit herky jerky for me so far, and to me, my task folders are the most important component to ToodleDo, they should be front and center, not a sideshow. Not quite sure I still like this :(

I like it! Definitely looks more professional. Sidebar should be an option for sure. Color choices might not hurt either. Otherwise, no complaints.

I'm being forced from an iPhone to a Pre2. I haven't received the phone yet, but my research indicates that Done! seems to cover the basics if not more in terms of the functionality that I currently get with the ToodleDo app for iPhone. However, I don't see any mention of ToodleDo Notebook funcionality support in Done! Does anyone know if it's there, or will I be forced to go back to Evernote or the like for notes support? Please let me know, thanks.

Am I missing something, or do these ToodleDo Forums NOT notify you when someone posts a reply to your post? If they DO notify you, somebody please tell me how to set up notifications. If they do NOT notify you, they should :) Thanks.

My days of iPhone bliss may be coming to an end - the company is forcing a move to a WebOS device. I know nothing about Toodler or Done, but I can't imagine that they work as well as the ToodleDo app for iPhone. My only saving grace is that I use the very basic of ToodleDo features, so hopefully I can get by. Does anyone use either Toodler or Done, or any other means of interfacing between a WebOS device and ToodleDo? Any suggestions, recommendations, helpful info, etc.? Very sad about this, I love ToodleDo, both on the Desktop AND on the iPhone. But I also like free, and the WebOS device would be free. Please advise, thanks.

Let me preface my statements by saying, for the upteenth time, that ToodleDo is the greatest application on Earth, I could not live without it, both the Web and iPhone apps are fantastic, and the developers and company behind the product should be recognized regularly for their efforts in both releasing and supporting a GREAT solution. Thank you, again.

As a regular user of "the basics", I'm big on simplicity, sorry. in the spirit of championing simplicity over functionality, recent enhancements seem to take away from the viewable area of the screen when using the ToodleDo iPhone app. Following are my own observations, and maybe a few suggestions for change...

In Tasks, nearly one third of the entire top of the ToodleDo app for iPhone's screen is taken up with what I would term "non-optional header" information. Yes, it's nice to know that I am looking at my "Business" folder, and that I can get back to my other folders, or add a task, those are what I would term somewhat necessary functions. But the big "search" bar? I haven't used it yet, but there it is, taking up a lot of room. And the additional header that shows me my hidden tasks (0, I don't hide tasks) and how my tasks are sorted? Useless, at least for me, and, again, it takes up a lot of viewable space. It would be nice if I had the option to get rid of some or all of those headers on the iPhone app and create more viewable space for the Tasks themselves.

For Notebook, the issue is a lot worse. I don't use any folders for Notes, so you can imagine my frustration at a large header up top that says "Folder - No Folder", right beneath the large title of the Note itself. Again, the combination of those two headers take up about a third of the viewable area of the iPhone's app, and in the case of a Note versus a Task, that means a lot of scrolling just to get through even the smallest of Notes. Again, one solution might be an option to get rid of the Note title (or at least reduce its size), as well as the ability to not have a folder header if you aren't using folders, so as to maximize the viewing area of the Note itself.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

A belated thank you for the quick response - side note -- on top of ToodleDo continuing to be the very BEST out of all my apps, both on the device and computer, the support has been fantastic throughout as well. I ask a question, I usually get a helpful answer, usually next day. That's just incredible. My biggest issue right now is, what would happen is something happened to ToodleDo? :) I don't have a good answer for that one. Again, thanks.
