I don't see it on the Toodledo website but, for all iOS apps, you can go to the App Store to see the latest version.

The most recent release of Toodledo was on Nov 21, 2105 and it is version 3.3.6.

Just curious: Given that MLO has task dependency and you are "really suffering from lack of this feature", why did you switch to Toodledo?

Also, if Toodledo promised you that task dependency would be available in two years, how would that change what you are doing now?

In any case, I doubt that you're going to get a timeline commitment from Toodledo.
Task dependency is not available and all you can do is structure your task management with this limitation.

It is not currently possible to export just one folder or one list. Sorry. You can export all of them to a CSV file and the use Excel or another spreadsheet program to delete the unwanted tasks.

Two good articles by David Allen:
Let the lists fall where they may
Probably the most universal how-to question for GTD neophytes is this: How do I keep track of all the things that you're recommending I keep out of my head? What's the best tool? The answer is pretty simple: however you most effectively can create and review lists.
The subtlety of streamlining
Many of the tools for personal organization miss the mark because they try too hard to simplify the complexity of our lives into forms and features. They often make our attempts at organization more difficult.

Allen's belief that appointments/meetings are not tasks, and are omitted from GTD consideration to be handled some other way.
...
Many of the tasks I do are in preparation for, or a followup to, one of those meetings that don't exist in GTD.
Where did you get the idea that appointments "are omitted from GTD consideration" and that "meetings don't exist in GTD"?

Here's what David Allen says in Getting Things Done, pages 39-41:
Calendar
Reminders of actions you need to take fall into two categories: those about things that have to happen on a specific day or time, and those about things that just need to get done as soon as possible. Your calendar handles the first type of reminder. Three things go on your calendar:
• time-specific actions;
• day-specific actions; and
• day-specific information.

Time-Specific Actions This is a fancy name for appointments. Often the next action to be taken on a project is attending a meeting that has been set up to discuss it. Simply tracking that on the calendar is sufficient.

Day-Specific Actions
These are things that you need to do sometime on a certain day, but not necessarily at a specific time. Perhaps you told Mioko you would call her on Friday to check that the report you're sending her is OK. She won't have the report until Thursday, and she's leaving the country on Saturday, so Friday is the time window for taking the action—but anytime Friday will be fine. That should be tracked on the calendar for Friday but not tied to any particular time slot—it should just go on the day. It's useful to have a calendar on which you can note both time-specific and day-specific actions.

Day-Specific Information
The calendar is also the place to keep track of things you want to know about on specific days—not necessarily actions you'll have to take but rather information that may be useful on a certain date. This might include directions for appointments, activities that other people (family or staff) will be involved in then, or events of interest. It's also helpful to put short-term "tickler" information here, too, such as a reminder to call someone after the day they return from a vacation.
...
The "Next Actions" List(s)
So where do all your action reminders go? On "Next Actions" lists, which, along with the calendar, are at the heart of daily action-management organization.

Any longer-than-two-minute, non-delegatable action you have identified needs to be tracked somewhere. "Call Jim Smith re budget meeting," "Phone Rachel and Laura's moms about sleepaway camp," and "Draft ideas re the annual sales conference" are all the kinds of action reminders that need to be kept in appropriate lists, or buckets, to be assessed as options for what we will do at any point in time.

If you have only twenty or thirty of these, it may be fine to keep them all on one list labeled "Next Actions," which you'll review whenever you have any free time. For most of us, however, the number is more likely to be fifty to 150. In that case it makes sense to subdivide your "Next Actions" list into categories, such as "Calls" to make when you're at a phone or "Project Head Questions" to be asked at your weekly briefing.

Posted by Jake:
you can add both start-dates and start-times via Smart Quick Add. type /Dec 25 and the popup menu will give you the choice of adding that as a due-date or start-date.
This also works if you type the day of the week, but it assumes that you want the date to be this week. For example, if you type /Tue, it gives you Dec 15 (which is in the past) instead of Dec 22, which is Tuesday next week.

The manual sorting would be just an additional sorting critéria. If I put manual sorting as first critéria then indeed, it will be the first one; If I put folder as first criteria and manual sorting as second one, then the manual sorting would be within each folder.
Seems to me that this would be difficult to do and awkward to use. Better to have a "manual mode" where there's no sorting, and then move the tasks to create the right order. When you choose a sort order based on one or more of the fields, then the manual order is gone.

Hi Eric.

Take a look at this topic from almost seven years ago: Reordering tasks.

It's clear that this has not been a high priority ... ;-)

FWIW, you can reorder subtasks within a task by using drag and drop, but you probably know that.

There are several fields that you can use besides Folder: Context, Tags, Goal and Location. You can enable them by going to Modify Fields/Functions Used in Settings.

You cannot view attachments on Toodledo. Toodledo only stores them. To view an attachment you need to download it to your computer and then view it there.

There's no end date in Toodledo.

In 2008, this was the answer:
This is not currently possible, but we hope to support this in the future.
In 2010, it was this:
End dates for repeating tasks are on our to-do list. For now, you'll need to write the end date into the note and then delete the task when it is done.
In 2014:
This is not currently possible, but it is on our todo list. In the meantime you will need to delete the task when you are done with it.
In 2015:
When you are done with a repeating task, you can just delete it. The previously completed versions will still be in your history. If you prefer you can edit the tasks so it is no longer a repeating task and then complete it one more time.

For iOS alarms, currently you must choose "Task alarms come from website" in the app's settings for this to work since the app hasn't yet been updated to send local habit alarms (this will come in a future update).
According the app, this is not the "recommended" option. In fact, when I select it, the alarms don't appear at the designated time, but at some time before or after. I'm not going to jeopardize the reliability of my Task alarms to get Habit alarms. I'll wait until the iOS app is updated.

Does the Toodledo team plan on using surveys before introducing additional changes?
On October 26, you implemented two major changes to the Task Header.
On October 27, after receiving several complaints about the new location of the "Add Task" button, you posted a survey.
The next day you moved the button back to the left and you received enthusiastic thanks for listening to your users.

Seems to me that something is wrong here.
Given that Toodledo has access to surveys, how about posting them before implementing major changes and using the feedback from the surveys to determine the best course of action?

The email alarm worked, but the iOS app did not. I selected "Task Alarms come from website". Do I have to sync for the alarms to work? In any case, I did sync immediately after setting the alarm on the website. And I have enabled Notification for the Toodledo app. As I mentioned previously, I am getting my Task alarms.

Also, how about allowing any time for Habit alarms, rather than just four options during the hour?

One more thing: I had stopped using Habits because there were no scheduling options besides daily and now that I've started using it again (and I am looking forward to using it, thanks) I find the button for choosing Habits (in the far top left corner) to be annoying. I don't like the location, the downward chevron for clicking, and the fact I have to click, move down to the bottom choice, and click again. Also, why is the dropdown menu so big? Responsive design is not really the answer.
Better to have the various functions available across the top of the screen

The second addition is "Alarms". Get reminders to help you remember to completed and log your habits. Alarms can be sent via email, Text, Twitter, our iOS app, or in your web browser.
I tested the reminders but I can't get them to work on the website or on my iPhone. I set a couple of reminders about 15 minutes in the future but there was no alarm at the designated time.
Do the alarms have to be set for the next day?

BTW, my task alarms work fine so it doesn't seem to be related to any of my settings.

Take a look at the Referral Program.

Also, if you don't mind viewing all of each other's tasks, you could share an account and use Folders or Tags to keep track of individual lists.
