  1. Improve repeating task options

    Create more and simpler options for task repeats. At the moment a task cannot be specified for the last day of the month*. Also an option to repeat a task a set time from completion would be useful e.g. a task could be set to repeat 7 days after it was completed.

    It would be quicker and simpler to have separate buttons for day, week, month and year repeats. Each would take you to a sub menu to set the details. For example the day button could take you to a menu where you could set one or more days…

      Portions of this feature request are duplicates of existing requests, and portions are already supported in the app.

      For more advanced repeating patterns, vote for this feature:

      http://utl.uservoice.com/forums/149475-new-feature-suggestions-and-bug-reports/suggestions/2588424-support-super-advanced-repeating-patterns

      While not listed, the last day of the month would definitely be included when we implement this.

      Tasks can already be set to repeat from completion date. You will see this option in the task editor after specifying a repeating pattern.

      For an improved UI for specifying advanced repeating patterns, vote for this feature:

    • Enable Copying Views

      Would be extremely time saving to be able to copy Views (saved searches) for creating new ones that are similar.

      • Offer more solid integration with device's calendar - most notably To-Do item deletions within the app

        Items are entered into my device's selected calendar flawlessly from the app. This is a wonderful tool for easily entering items into my calendar and thereby keeping my Outlook calendar updated.

        However, when an item (previously entered from within the app and then copied to my calendar) is deleted, it tends to remain in my local calendar. It would be great if these deleted entries were also deleted from my calendar without fail.

        Thanks for listening...

          The app is designed to delete a linked calendar entry upon deletion of a task. If this is not working for you, can you provide a list of steps which will reproduce the problem? If we can identify the steps required to reproduce this, then we will accept this feature request and work on a software update.

            • Global edit key task attributes (Due Date, Priority, Context, etc.)

              Add global edits on multi-selected tasks so a group of tasks could all have Due Date, Priority, Context, or other attributes changed by entering it once. For example, change the Due Date on all selected tasks to a date entered only once, without opening and editing each task individually.

              • make widgets more colourful and add sync to Dropbox

                For To-Do APP, I just choose between GDT GTD and UltimateTo-Do List, I think GDT GTD have two advantages.One is his widgets,which is more colourful, different date has different colours,which makes it easy to recognize, maybe UltimateTo-Do should learn from it. The other is GDT GTD's sync to Dropbox, this is a wonderful feature, I don't need to warry to loss data.but UltimateTo-Do can only sync to SD card.

                Please pardon my English

                • Rescheduling of repeat tasks sometimes doesn't work

                  This seems to be the same problem as "Bug: Advanced repeating tasks don't work".

                  I have the following settings for the task:
                  Due Date: 2016-04-21
                  Completed: 2016-06-21
                  Repeat: The last Sun of each month
                  Repeat From: Completion Date

                  When I marked it completed on 2016-06-21, it stayed as completed and did not reschedule.

                  Sometimes my repeat tasks reschedule and other times they are marked as done.

                  This is very frustrating as I always have to keep looking in my completed tasks for tasks that should have been rescheduled.

                    Given what you have described, i’m wondering if you are editing a task that was previously marked as complete and has already generated a new task based on the repeating pattern. In order to prevent accidental duplicates, the app has some code in place to prevent extra repeating tasks from being created if a task is marked as complete, then marked as incomplete, and then marked as complete again. Without these protections, marking a task as complete twice would produce 2 duplicate future tasks.

                    In certain unusual situations, this protection against duplicates could prevent a new task from being created when you want one to be. One thing you could try is to make sure to avoid turning a completed task into an incomplete one as much as possible. Instead, create a new task or use the clone command to make a copy of the completed one.

                  • Provide the ability to filter on the start time so that tasks that don't start until later in the day are hidden

                    I have a number of tasks that can only be performed in the evenings. It would be great if there was a filter on the start time so that these types of tasks are not visible until they can actually be done

                          This is a limitation imposed by Google that is outside of our control. Fortunately, it is easy to remove this error message. Just choose a folder when creating or editing a task. If the “folder” field is invisible, you can enable it in the settings area.

                        • long press and tap to select multiple tasks for group deletion other changes.

                          Long press and tap to select multiple tasks for group deletion or other group changes. It is a total pain to delete or change item seeings individually.

                          • at widget adding filter of current place instead of an special place

                            I found at the Android widget the possibility to filter for the places. There are listed all defined places and "no special place". I need the possibility to select the current place (e.g. 200 meters around) so that this filter show me automatically what is to do arround my current place.

                              • Ability to set location reminder by Meter not Kilometer

                                In location tracking menu, now set it by mile or Kilometer.

                                it's too long. I have a lot of place I've set location reminder near my home within 1 Kilometer.

                                As a result, whenever I'm home, it always remind me....

                                So make it set by meter.

                                  I think is a misunderstanding about the settings available. In the location tracking options, the “Distance Units” setting refers only to how distances are displayed in the app. There is another setting called “Reminder Radius” which allows you to adjust when a location reminder occurs. This is in meters.

                                • When finishing a task that is assigned to some "Goal", chain link is not added for that goal.

                                  Maybe adding also a "full support" - show chains for goals in application - would be also great. I mean that chains on this page: http://www.toodledo.com/organize/goals.php (for Pro accounts)

                                  But fixing that bug with not adding chain links would be enough.

                                    This issue appears to be on Toodledo’s side. The interface Toodledo provides to apps such as ours does not provide a way to directly update the goal chain. If you are not seeing a new link in the chain after completing a task within UTL, then Toodledo’s server did not update its internal records after the synchronization.

                                    Currently, the only workaround we are aware of is to make sure to mark the task as complete from Toodledo’s web site.

                                    Regarding support for viewing a goal chain within UTL, feel free to submit this in the “New Feature Suggestions” area.

                                    A display option "Show first sort criteria as Title/Divider" for each view would be cool.

                                    I would like to have an "Agenda View", where I could easily see what I have to todo today and in the next days. Such views are already available (as "Heute/Morgen fällig" or as Custom View), but for my opinion these lists would be much clearer and nicer for me, if the first sort criteria would be provided as a title for the block of tasks which match this criteria . Similiar like the toodle do web frontend does it.

                                    Example: A view sorted by…

                                      • Serious bug in location reminders, drains battery

                                        There exists a serious bug in location reminders. Once a location is defined on a map the GPS will switch on and will never switch off, no matter if the app is running or not. This will drain the battery of the phone dramatically. The only workaround is to delete all locations and reboot the phone.

                                        Please have a look at "location without tears" from the Tasker manual on how to avoid this:

                                        Thanks!

                                          The app is currently turning on the GPS so that it can provide a reminder when a particular task’s location is reached. The app assumes that the user wants to be reminded even if the app is not running.

                                          We have another feature request open to address the power drain issue by providing an option to use cellular location only. Feel free to add your vote and comments here:

                                        • Ability to turn off all location based reminders for a device

                                          PLEASE, can we have a simple configuration option to turn off all Location based reminders for a device? I run the software on 3 different devices, and I only need location reminders on my phone - but currently get them on all 3 devices, which is annoying.

                                            The app does allow you to turn off location reminders on specific devices. To access the setting, go to the app’s settings area, then tap on Account Management followed by the name of the account. You will see a setting there that allows you to turn off location reminders.
