Default [App] [2.2+][1.7] Tdl Todo List 11/14/13

A program to organize todo's/tasks in a treeview form.

It's an Android version of Abstract Spoon's hierarchical ToDoList program:
http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/...ctive-and-flex or http://www.abstractspoon.com

Use it to keep track of to do's or for project management. The outline can have as many sub-levels as you want, or the list can be viewed "flat".
The task list can be viewed in a Gannt chart in the desktop application.

Add, view and edit your list on your phone, then use the same list on your computer. If you put the file in your DropBox folder, it will automatically be synced.

Files are stored in user defined folders on the sd card (can use any level of sub-directory).
Integrates with File Managers, DropBox and Google Drive. However, files opened in Google Drive, cannot be saved directly.
Choose dark or light theme
Move item around with cut and paste.
List can be sorted based on due date (can also use calculated dates), category, title, completion or priority, risk, status, allocated to, or it can be unsorted.
Home screen widget shows tasks due today.
Set alarms and be reminded when your task is due.
Can be integrated with the Minimalistic Text Widget (if installed).
Completed items can be hidden from view.
Backup your file manually, or do it automatically every time there is a change.
Completed items can be hidden from view.
Notes are available from main list, and hyperlinks are clickable.
List can be filtered based on title, priority or due today (other filters will be added later).
List can be searched based on title.
Notes are available from main list, and hyperlinks are clickable.
Collapse/expand all.

Currently supports editing of these fields:
-title
-start date
-due date
-completed
-priority
-status
-category
-risk
-percent done
-allocated to
-notes
-recurrence

Future plans:
-Export as google task
-Receive text from other apps
-Native Dropbox sync
-UI improvements

Because this is a beta version, every time your list is saved, the previous version will be saved too (6 good backups are kept). (This feature can be turned off in the settings menu.)

NOTE: For people who have issues with the app:
- concrete suggestions would be appreciated
- errors: send me an email with the steps that caused the error. Some phones doesn't have any issues at all, so it's been difficult to pinpoint why others do.

Since the original desktop version of this program is constantly being developed, some of the features available on the desktop might not work on the Android version.

Uninstall:
Any list files stored on the sd card will be left after uninstallation.

LIMITATION:
If the notes field has more than about 8000 characters, the note field will appear blank.
If the file is big, it might take a while for it to load (it's also possible it will crash). Reported to be a problem on a file of 700kb (will have to do some more testing on this).

DISCLAIMER:
This is still being developed as a hobby, and is not a final version. It is being developed as I see fit, have time and am interested in doing it. THERE IS NO WARRANTY THAT THIS PROGRAM WILL WORK on your Android phone or tablet. I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY DAMAGE IT MAY CAUSE.

Default Updated version

Sorry about the bug on the settings screen. I hope this is fixed now.
Some users have reported crashes on the main screen.
I would appreciate some more information on when that happens.

Hi,

Firstly just to say I am in love with the idea of this app, I use TDL on my desktop and would love to be able to sync those to my phone.

But the sync isn't working for me - here's what I'm doing and what errors I get, I hope this can help, would really appreciate any suggestions

I created a new to do list in the desktop version and made sure it was saved as a Tasklist (not unicode). My TDL program is already in my dropbox, so I created a rule in dropsync to sync the tasklist folder to a folder on my phone

When I open the file from the list in the mobile app I get 'No Items' and an error

If I add a task from the mobile version I get an error message on screen 'nextuniqueid=null'

I tried to sync the to do list back to the dropbox and open it in the desktop version, and I get this



The XML contains one line
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="WINDOWS-1252"?>
Any ideas as to where I'm going wrong? If you need any more info please ask!

Thanks!
Jon

Thanks for the feedback and the fact that you report it here instead of sending an email . It would be great if everyone who has issues could use this thread, so everyone can benefit from any solutions I might have.

This is because the document wasn't created properly, and it's not possible to add to a nonexisting dom document. (which means I need to figure out why it's not created properly first).

Well, you are not doing anything wrong! I'm afraid it's a bug that I'm struggling with. I have fixed a few small issues, and will release an update today hopefully, but I don't think it addresses the issue you are having. I also realized that I had hard coded the sdcard in some places, although again, that shouldn't be the issue.

Here is my suggestions, questions to anyone who have this issue:
  • Does it happen for all the files or just some of them?
  • Try to change the encoding on both the desktop and the phone.
  • Can you create a list on your phone, edit it on the computer, and then read it again on the phone?
  • Can you put the file in a different directory and see if that works?
  • Also please note the android version you are running, in case that's the isssue.

For the people who don't have any issues (including myself), maybe you could let me know your android version?

I'm sorry, this seems to be a big issue, and it's taken a lot of time and more to come, so any help is appreciated.

It will take some time for me to go through the info you sent. The fact that you can't navigate to the external sdcard, I'm hoping will be fixed in the update later today.

That's strange. I haven't changed anything (as far as I know) that should have affected that.
I'm running a lower version of Android and it works fine.
Why don't you try the new version and let me know. In the meantime I'll do some more testing.

I have the new version, but I'm still not able to navigate to the SD card? Can you explain how it should work? This is what I see?

Attachment 1214926
The list you see are all the (non-hidden) directories on the sdcard. If you have files in the root of the sd card, just click on the first blank entry.

If the directory has subdirectories, after clicking on the directory, you will have to enter the path to the file manually. I'm hoping to change that in a later version.
So assuming you have your files in a subdirectory called Tdl under the AbstractSpoonTDL directory, you select AbstractSpoonTDL and will be shown an input box where you would enter AbstractSpoonTDL/Tdl/

Hope this clarifies your question.
