Score: 0
Does anybody else notice the irony of us all posting about how we are leaving Toodledo in the forum called "we're back"?

I am really going to miss Toodles. Member since 2009 and it has been the home for everything for the past 6 years, and despite having looked at alternatives, nothing has really jelled for me yet.
Thank you for the Tick Tick recommendation. Remember the Milk is next up for me.

I've also looked at:
Nozbe - super expensive and simplistic
Facile Things - seems really hard to use
Amazing Marvin - enjoyed it, but fundamentally didn't like the way they did projects. Seems really well supported though
Todoist - similar to marvin
Clickup - really didn't like their inbox
Momentum Earth - really liked this too, but no app yet and after the initial bulk of updates it seems to have slowed to nothing now

Wish you all well and hoping against hope that someone takes over Toodles and gets it back on its feet.

For me, the main pricing irritation is that the Individual plan has only 1 year of task history. If it had unlimited task history, I could downgrade from Gold to Individual, and then it would only be a 2x price hike for me. I don't use Toodledo as a business & don't need the collaboration features or file uploads, but I do like the peace of mind of unlimited history (and being able to do statistics on that task history).


This is my main concern also, the individual offer is "not too bad" (though todoist is cheaper, at least in the UK) but I'd really like to keep my task history for longer than a year, which i currently get on gold.

Hi Sam,
Another two tweaks that would be great would be:

File manager - deleting files is a bit of a pain, and although i have a lot of space, it feels very disorganised to have many files which aren't attached to any tasks anymore because the tasks were completed.

Outline - I like the outline feature and use it to project plan from time to time, but it would be nice to be able to turn a line in the outline into a task - for example if you "starred" the line in the outlines it would become a task.

Perhaps the new owners will change the name from Toodledo to ToodleDo, given that many users think that's the name ...

In any case, I’ll just wait and see what happens. For now, Toodledo does the job for me but, if there are major changes that I don't like, there are plenty of other options.


I'm so guilty of calling it ToodleDo.... I have no idea why I do that!

Jake, I'd like to echo the responses of others here. ToodleDo has become the application that I "run my life" from. Your creation of a tool that has helped me (and so many others) get organised and accomplish more than I ever thought I could is a tremendous achievement and I am very grateful to you for what you have done over the years.

Thank you.

Sam, Ramon and Anant, welcome and the very best of luck with making ToodleDo even more relevant and useful over the coming years. It certainly is an exciting opportunity and I can see that your approach of working with the community is an excellent one.

I think one of the strengths of the platform lies in it's flexibility and the way users can customise their experience. I will certainly respond to your google feedback request with more information regarding these thoughts.

My only caution to you would be that users like me keep their life in ToodleDo. Treat us with care and patience, and always consider why we are using ToodleDo and not any of the plethora of other apps out there.

Good luck!

Thank you Jake. Im sure I will get used to the menu "delay" so long as I know it isn't a fault! Thanks for looking into it for me.

Hi Jake, sure thing I'd be happy to help. Can you recommend any screen recording software? I've never used any before.

Hello Jake, I've started using the new tasks section, and I've got about 90 items I've "chucked in my inbox" that I was just adding tags to or putting in folders, usual sort of stuff for me.

Anyways, I've noticed that it was really slow to operate. For example, I'd click on the folder drop down and there was a visible delay in the dropdown appearing. Or I'll try and add a tag and they'll be a beat after clicking on a tag and it actually assigning it. I really noticed it when I tried to change between save searches and open up a new search and it felt like a bit of a grind to get there.

It definitely wasn't that slow on the old tasks section.

Is that normal? Am i doing something wrong? I'm running google chrome version 59.0.3071.115. My internet speed isn't the fasted, probably 7MB, but I don't have an issue with any other websites and as I say the old tasks section worked just fine.

Thank you!

Score: 0
I've just started using outlines for project planning on toodledo, having been a long time paper user. One thing I've tried is when I get my outlines down to the tasks phase and I want to copy that over to my tasks section, if I tag it up with the folder and context in advance then when i copy over to quick add it labels it up for. Makes it a fairly quick process to move things over.

eg "research new marketing manager" breaks down to "speak to Fred about his experience with recruitment firm /Marketing /Agenda /Office" and that tags it with my marketing folder, agenda context and office tag

Works for me at the moment!
