Posted Jun 03, 2024 in: keyboard shortcuts
Score: 0
I'm using web-toodledo with desktop computer... there's a "K" at the lower right screen that shows some (all?) keyboard shortcuts.

I mostly use "M" for main screen
"D" for due
"E" for search

Are you referring to collapsing the "Folders"?

If you're using website Toodledo from a desktop computer, hotkey "W" will collapse/uncollapse the Folders (if that's what you're asking...)

In my experience (desktop computer/toodledo website), you can't *save* an excel doc directly to toodledo. You would have to (as you said), download the file, amend the excel file, and then re-attach it to toodledo.

Are your limitations about filesize? MS-excel?

I sometimes just keep a reminder in toodledo to update an excel file that's on my hard drive (but toodledo is just a reminder, it doesn't hold/host the excel file itself)

I'm using Toodledo website on a desktop computer-


I'm pretty sure Keyboard Shortcut "E" takes you to your last-used search


You can press ? to see all the shortcuts..

I mostly use E (for last-used saved search), D for date search, and M for Main.

Sometimes O for Folders

Posted Nov 28, 2022 in: Daily list and actually doing it
Score: 2
I have wandered far and wide in my search for "how to get things done". I have tried many apps etc, and perused various “systems” over the years. I have settled on Toodledo for sorting and staging and organizing tasks (especially repeating tasks), and a single piece of paper (daily) for writing out (by hand) the "must-do's" for today.

A Google search on "productivity" will find countless sites and books and systems for being "productive".

Below is a list of quotes on "productivity" that I have collected over the years, quotes that have spoken to me at various times in my journey. (I have lost some of the sources for these, but they still speak to me, perhaps some will speak to you).

And before reading the following quotes, I want to be clear that I prefer Toodledo (on desktop / web) more than any other to-do software or app ..

Don’t think about all the things you’ll have to do – just the next one.

-The most productive people I know don’t read these books, they don’t watch these videos, they don’t try a new app every month. They are far too busy getting things done to read Getting Things Done. But what they’ve also come to accept is that working hard is indeed, just hard work. There’s no trick to it.


-Getting things done - It's a practice and a system and a set of behaviors, not a software package.

-Rituals and habits are different than your Task List

-Reinhard Engels Everyday Systems - Regarding computers and to-do lists
to paraphrase - Computers are so powerful that I find that the effort required to stay focused while working them often cancels out the efficiencies that computers give us in the first place

-Don’t Keep Your To-do List on the Computer
One of the most productive changes I made was to take my daily to-do list off the computer and onto a Post-It pad. That meant that the computer didn’t need to be on all the time by default – and I was less likely to get sucked into surfing or checking e-mail each time I consulted the list. Plus the size of the Post-It notes keeps me focused – instead of an endless digital to-do list, I know that if the list won’t fit on a Post-It, it won’t fit into my day. So I create more realistic daily lists – and actually complete them.
Takeaway: Try writing your daily tasks on a single Post-It note. If it doesn’t fit, cut it down to size before you start work.

You Are the Boss of You
At any point during the workday, you are in one of two modes: thinking mode (that's you with the Boss hat on) and action mode (that's you with the Personal Assistant hat on). When a project or task comes up, the steps you need to take start to form in your mind. Now you're in thinking/Boss mode - the guy/gal who gives the orders. Your to-do list is a collection of those orders, which your Assistant personality will later pick up and do.
When you're wearing your Boss hat, it's up to you to write down the instructions in such a way that your Assistant self can just do them without having to think - or stress. Taking the thinking out of the acting is one of the best ways to make your to-do list a cinch to finish off.

This is the #1 mistake we see people make, and it’s the biggest reason why GTD doesn’t work for people – they don’t review frequently enough. By failing to review consistently, they just let things pile up and it gets harder and harder to keep up with their system<\i>

There are a few backups on toodledo that i use to download my data:

I've never had to restore this data, but as a backup I use Remember the Milk. I can upload a toodledo backup to RTM and continue working ...

In the web-toodledo, the columns are adjustable for width (upper right on top of the columns)

Also, you can use CTRL + and CTRL - to adjust the view size of the browser

Score: 4
I agree with "Be Careful".

Toodledo's layout is as close to a spreadsheet as I've seen (and for me a spreadsheet has maximum visual efficiency).

I've tried (and dismissed) other to-do apps because their layout was "cute", "modern", "familiar (to Outlook)", etc.

Score: 0
If you don't want a task to repeat, you can change the REPEAT to NONE.

If you also "check it off", I think the task shows as "completed", but once you reach a certain number of completed tasks you might have to delete it (in the batch-delete process).

For your repeating tasks, I *think* you can use "due Optionally" instead of "Due Date" ....

Last I checked, "Due Optionally's" wouldn't carry over to the next day - they would simply show up in 6 months again.

Hello!

There is no support. Last I heard, there were over 500 unanswered support tickets.

Toodledo is probably abandonware at this point. You should make backups of your data of begin your search for another platform.

You might get a better feel for the situation if you poke around the more recent threads over here:

After 10 loyal years I recently gave up on Toodledo. Mainly I wanted to select a new app and make the change before TD became a crisis. The app I chose was RTM.


I'm also a long-time Toodledo user (web/desktop)... I've selected RTM as my backup, but I'll stay with toodledo until the lights go out. I find Toodledo's page layout to be the most concise and intuitive of anything thing I've seen yet.

Thanks for setting that up ...


There is an outside discussion forum, you'd need to create a Slack account to access

It's not an overly active forum.. yet :D

I'm a longtime desktop/web user of Toodledo, and over the last two years I have tested just about all the other alternatives. One day I might just move it all to Excel spreadsheet and stop being a pawn in these "here-today-gone-tomorrow" apps,

In the meantime, I'm making daily Toodledo data backups, and once per week I refresh the data to Remember the milk (it's about as seamless a migration as I could hope for).

A question for you ... have you ever maxed out the number of completed tasks (ie, has Toodledo ever prompted to to delete completed tasks?)
