Toodledo: An On-Line Task Manager that is Easy to Use and is Feature Packed

June 29, 2007 at 7:08 pm | Posted in Firefox, gtd, Plugins, Task Management | 4 Comments

I have been very busy for the past few weeks with several projects all needing my attention at once. In the process of trying to keep track of tasks I did some research (aka surfing the web when I should have been working) into the world of On-Line Task Managers. In the end I found a few good ones, a few over complicated ones several that did pretty much the same thing and one that is almost perfect.

Just a few days ago Solution Watch posted 25 To Do Lists To Stay Productive which is a very comprehensive but only goes into detail on four of them.

The one that caught my attention was Toodledo which has some level of GTD integration by allowing the creation of folders, contexts and goals.

There is also a Firefox plugin for Toodledo that allows you to quickly add tasks and view your “hotlist” in the side-bar. And there is nothing I love more than another Firefox Plugin.

Another cool feature is tha ability to print a booklet of your tasks for the few moments you are not on-line. I am finding this feature very handy because instead of flipping through my notebook for various lists I can print an always up-to-date master list, jot notes on it and then input the notes when I am back on-line.

Now the only thing that I don’t love about Toodledo is that it’s only 75% FREE. Have a look at the comparison cart of the FREE vs the Pro Toodledo plans. As you can see the Free version stacks up pretty well but the one feature that is an absolute must is Collaboration. But for $14.95 per year (that’s $.05 cents a day) the Pro plan is a steal. Just to put it in perspective $14.95 is one lunch at the Japanese Steak and Sushi House or 2 Burritos.

So if your in the market for a Task Manager that is easy to use and feature packed then Toodledo is your answer.

  1. I’m a big fan of Toodledo as well, the pro plan is a steal for $15

    The one thing I found missing was a user group or forum so I created one – check us out at usetoodledo.com

  2. I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to add how much I love Toodledo – it’s so much better than most of the other online task managers in so many ways! It also compares very favourably with all of the software task management solutions I’ve come accross, with the added bonus of being available anywhere you have internet access. It also has the option to import/export/sync/view in most of the formats you’ll ever need (e.g. Palm PDA, foldable paper booklets, iCal, plain text, CSV, RSS, email, google homepage & calendar, IM, iPhone, firefox addon etc etc!) and if that’s not enough the developer’s API allows those who are that way inclined to invent their own ways of interacting with it! It also has firefox integration for adding & viewing tasks, allows you to add things via email, and is flexible enough to work with most organisational systems (I’m using a vaguely GTDish system and it works well).
    Sorry to sound like such a fangirl, but I think it’s a shame more people don’t know about Toodledo – in my opinion it’s better in many respects than more talked about online task managers like Remember the Milk.

  3. For implementing GTD you might try out this new web-based application:

    http://www.gtdagenda.com

    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use
    checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    A mobile version is available too.

    Hope you like it.

    Gtdagenda.com

    checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    A mobile version is available too.

    As with the last update, now Gtdagenda has full Someday/Maybe functionality, you can easily move your tasks and projects between “Active”, “Someday/Maybe” and “Archive”. This will clear your mind, and will boost your productivity.

    Hope you like it.
