On any type of "catastrophic" PC failure, and periodically when I just reboot, I am being asked to provide my login and password to ToodleDo again on various computers, even though I have chosen to "remember me" on all computers. Why does this happen, and what can I do to prevent this from occuring in the future?

I'm a simple guy, right now, I do not use folders, status or priority. I sort all tasks by due date, then tag, assign a number or letter under tag to a task, and wah-lah, I have them sorted in the order that I want to complete them for any given day. Works for me.

I'm getting ready to purchase an iPhone for work, which means I have to come up with some sort of strategy for keeping personal and business tasks (which are currently not in ToodleDo) separate and sorted the same way. The problem is, when I create a pair of folders (say, Personal and Business), then try to sort on two criteria (say, due date, then tag), I get a completely different and useless look to all of my tasks, whether I view them in their respective folders, in the Main folder, even the ones that have no folder are now messed up.

Does folder constitute a "third" sort criteria i.e. I would have to upgrade to Pro in order to do all of this? If yes, then I am going to look for a completely different to do list app with similiar functionality to ToodleDo in order to do this, I do not need to upgrade to Pro just to get this one feature. Someone please tell me that I am setting something up wrong or something. I can send screen shots as appropriate to help illustrate.

If you haven't guessed it, I LOVE ToodleDo and want to make this work.

Thanks!

Nothing earthshaking, but I used to hit F5 and get an INSTANTANEOUS refresh of my To Do List. Now I get a couple of seconds of "loading" before that happens, on any computer, iPod and/or connection I use (wired or wireless, home or remote). Sorry, I'm spoiled, what's up?

Not to sound stupid here, and I'm not sure how long it's been out there, but I just discovered the Notebook functionality on the iPod side via the last update, fantastic! Simple, alphabetically ordered, just what I asked for many months ago.

Thank you very much!! Now I can deinstall Evernote :)

UPDATE - please remove or disregard this post, somehow the zoom under Internet Explorer/Page got increased, fixed and fine, thanks.

So I made some very basic changes last night on the iPod end of ToodleDo (i.e. reordered Fields Used under Settings/Fields & Defaults, so that my iPod and desktop lists are in the same order). When I logged onto the desktop application today, my font size is BIG, I mean HUGE. My eyes aren't getting any better so I almost like it better, except all of my other applications are still "normal sized" so I'm getting headaches going back and forth. Bottom line - how do I change the font size on the desktop ToodleDo application back, if applicable, or did I change something on the iPod end that I need to change back, if applicable, or did ToodleDo do something on their end that they need to change again/back, if applicable? Please advise, thanks.

I FINALLY figured out a way of sorting my tasks on the Web based app so that I could literally put them in the order that I want to complete them for a given day. So simple, you all probably know this already. Sort by due date, then by tag, and you use the tag column to literally list them 1,2,3 and so on. Works great on the Web based app, exactly what I need. Unfortunately, it does not translate on the iPod app because you can't pick tag as a sort criteria. What am I missing? Can I do it and I'm just not looking in the right place, or does the iPod app not allow sort by tag (it should!). Please help, thanks.

Just reviewed those options again, I did install then deinstall Pocket Informant, daily view was the same or worse than the standard iPod app. Calengoo looked good, the daily view is definitely better than the iPod app but I would have to set up everything with Google Caldendar and GoogleSync again in order to make it work with Outlook. Definitely food for thought, thanks for the tip. Of course, ToodleDo Calendar would make this all a lot easier :)

Thanks for the replies. Again, I'm primarily looking to sync my Outlook Calendar data with my iPod Touch. I know that I can get that Outlook Data up to Google Calendar, had a couple of snafus with data not appearing but for the most part I got it. I tried a couple of calendar apps for the iPod Touch that sync up with Google Calendar, none of which I liked, but they were not Pocket Informant or Calengoo, I can check both of those out. I'm ultimately interested in ToodleDo providing that synchronization between Outlook Calendar and iPod Touch, would make things a lot easier and minimize the number of applications that I've got working with one another. Thanks for the tip.

I purchased an iPod Touch to finally move off of Palm. Without ToodleDo, I could not have done it. The migration of data from Palm's To Do List to ToodleDo was a little bit too easy. The replacement of the Palm Desktop with the ToodleDo Web interface makes me wonder why I waited so long. I use Outlook and iTunes to get Contacts and Notes synched up, they don't work nearly as well as ToodleDo, but they get the job done.

My one issue is Calendar. I've tried a number of iPhone applications, as well as Google Calendar, nothing really works well. Currently I'm using Outlook and iTunes to sync up to the iPod's Calendar app. Outlook is fine on the desktop end, I'm so used to it from work that it's a breeze. The problem is on the iPod end, the Calendar app on the iPod just STINKS. Specifically, the Ipod Calendar app offers you three views (List, Day, Month), and none of them really provide the same level of detail in one view that the daily view on my Palm device did. While the iPod interface and scrolling features are great for everything else, the Calendar app suffers in this respect. The iPod forums are littered with complaints about this, a lot of them coming from Palm users such as myself.

I have a number of posts all over the place, and then I started thinking about ToodleDo. There seems to already be a lot of calendar-like functionality built into ToodleDo, albeit there's no true Calendar function. What would it take to develop a true Calendar function for ToodleDo that synched with Outlook and iPhone/iPod, and presented a really basic, Palm-like shot of the day, week and month on the device?

I'm not a Pro user (yet) but I would GLADLY pay for THAT!

PS will these different styles work with the free version of ToodleDo or would I have to migrate to Pro?

Great information, thank you. I do have Firefox but I primarily use Internet Explorer 8. Do I have to use Firefox in order to take advantage of this functionality?

Any way to change colors or select/deselect a boldfaced font in the free version of ToodleDo?

As a previous Palm user who has bitten the bullet and made the hard switch over to an iPod Touch and ToodleDo this week, this is the ONLY glaring issue that I see.

Please, please, please reconsider including manual sorting functionality with the next release of the free ToodleDo application, but please do not get rid of the current sorting functionality that is available as well (i.e. due date, folder, priority, status, etc.).

FYI, with just two sorted fields (priority and due date), I can emulate EXACTLY the same to do list layout as Palm. BUT I cannot reorder the items manually.

Please.

As a former Palm user, this was a BIG change for me moving over to an iPod Touch and ToodleDo. Maybe someone will have a heart and bring this basic functionality into the free product some day :) I don't understand the difference between a task and a subtask, but it sounds like a layer of complexity that I don't need and won't pay for. With minor exception, I like the ease of use and uncomplicated interface of the free ToodleDo, just the way it is. Question - if I actually paid for a Pro account to get the subtasks, how are they manually sorted? Drag and drop? Numerical order? How is the sort performed?

Palm.

Might be off topic but an offline version of ToodleDo like Salesforce.com or the like would be especially helpful.

Brand new iPod Touch owner, lifetime PC and Palm user. My life for the past week has been all about getting Palm Calendar, Contact, Task and Memo entries into ToodleDo. And devising some sort of backup/desktop methodology for each of them, just like Palm.

Here is what I did...

For Contacts and Calendar -- I used an application called Chapura to import all of that information into Microsoft Outlook. From Outlook, the iPod Touch can automatically sync both Calendar and Contacts as an option under iTunes/Applications. FYI, I do not believe that ToodleDo does contacts, but I could be mistaken.

For Tasks - I used the step by step ToodleDo directions to export a .tda file, then imported into ToodleDo. Worked great except for repeating tasks which I had to rebuild manually.

For Notes - I used Chapura to import Palm Notes into Microsoft Outlook, then selected Notes as a sync option under iTunes/Applications, it literally imported and formatted each of my Palm Notes from the Palm to Outlook into the iPod Touch's Notes application. Looks fine on the iPod Touch, a little funky with formatting issues in Outlook. Before I knew that I could do this, I also purchased an iPod Notes app called Appigo, which syncs automatically with ToodleDo. I imported my Palm Notes into ToodleDo Notebook via import instructions under "Tools and Services", set up Appigo to automatically sync, and there were all my memos. So I have them in two places.

I'm reading again that you're a Mac user, so some of these MS Office suggestions might not work? Rather, memos should work with the Appigo/ToodleDo combination that I just mentioned. Again, I don't think that ToodleDo does contacts but let me know if you hear elsewise. The challenge without MS Outlook or ToodleDo is that you have no "desktop" for contacts, but again, iTunes will sync your contacts from MS Outlook, it might sync from whatever similar application you might have on your computer. It will not sync from the Palm Desktop, sorry, I did try that :)

Good luck!
