+Emanoel Alves it's difficult to pinpoint the cause of your issues. We are reading all the reports. Please make sure you have your location reporting enabled. In your device go to Settings > Location. See if Todoist is on the 'Recent Location Requests'. After that, go to Google Location Reporting and make sure the Location Reporting is 'On for this device'. You may need to re-set your reminders. Please, keep us informed on the status of your location reminders.

I would love a better way of using the dashclock api. As you can see I'm just able to see that I have some ongoing tasks. On the wunderlist I can see the text of the ongoing tasks which is more powerful.

Would be great if you could add a option to see the task text :)

Can someone please explain how sub tasks are working in +Todoist . I do not understand at all.

To add a subtask to an existing task, tap on the task, then tap on the three vertical dots on the lower right of the screen. There should be an 'add subtask' entry.
To make an existing task a subtask of another, move the subtask-to-be under its parent (in the project view). Now tap on the subtask, tap edit and change the 'Level' (last field in the edit dialog) from none to 1 and save the task.
HTH :-)

Todoist 5.1-beta is out

You should be able to get it from Google Play in a few hours.

The main feature introduced in this version is one of the most anticipated ones: completed tasks management.

We won't give you any pointers on how to use it, since it should be pretty straightforward. However, if you have any suggestions or requests, please send them to us. We will read all the feedback.

Once again, it should be noted that this is a beta version. In that sense, we ask you to help us testing it and to report any bugs or other issues you may experience.

Thank you in advance!

+Roger Hüsser This community is oriented towards our beta testing builds, not feature requests. It's excellent you've already got a support ticket, though I would advise you to open a request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote_Android/
Thanks!

Is there a Todoist referral program?  Might be nice to have.  Maybe a point system for new sign-ups that can move you to a pro version or a nifty T-shirt.

Hi everyone! Although I'm relatively new to this group (and productivity tools in general), I've already been able to apply a TON of useful information through the reading of your discussions! So first and foremost: "Nice to meet you, I'm Jourdan!" and  "Thanks for the help!" :-)

With the obvious expertise abound in this creative group, I'm desperately seeking your advice! Would you be so kind as to enlighten me with help on the best way to set up/organize/arrange my project layouts across the Todoist board according to my overall "life list"?

Here's my story: I've been using Todoist for about 3 months now and it's wonderful, but in my case I feel productivity is still loose-fitting for "multi-career" types who have separate businesses yet interweaving passions. Let me explain:

My core purpose is to ultimately INSPIRE PASSION in others. I express this life-long journey - first with initial discovery, then exponential development and growth of the "passion" - in tangible forms through my creative endeavors. Once someone is finally able to access this divine "mustard seed", life-energy is able to flow open and freely, helping to inspire the next person to fight hard, dig down deep, and discover their seed as well. These "pass-it-on" reactions help to slowly but steadily move us closer to a world where everyone has made the "passion seed" discovery in their lifetime. Sadly, this may not currently be the case, but human potential is growing every day. The majority of my "life layout" stems from this underlying ideal, only in different formats of creativity.

But ALAS: there are many projects and tasks creating my everyday life and I am in desperate need of an effective organization!

#1. "Firm Body Evolution" - I manage an amazing and unique holistic fitness + detox gym (www.fbefitness.com), pretty much running EVERYTHING for the small business except pay the rent. From the "usual gym duties" of membership tours and sales, email followups, personal training, nutritional counseling, weight loss coaching, and administrative tasks ... to the entire marketing and development. I singlehandedly designed the website, including html coding, layout, write all the copy for site pages AND the blog, edited all images, write/host/produce all videos, and develop SEO, All creative design is my forte as well, such as planning and penning the newsletters, designing posters, postcards, and various marketing material, and lastly the huge project of managing and engaging customers in all forms of social media.

#2. "Songwriter / Vocalist": This is the profession I actually earned a degree for in college ;-) Concerning the music realm I personally manage all aspects of my career without help as an artist, writer, publisher of songs, and recently signed on to voiceover work as well. Last year after a ton of time, hard work and promotion, two of my original songs were licensed on a worldwide TV show. This placement earned me an awesome fan base which is amazing - but I have to maintain engagement (again...) on all social media platforms! So on top of large "focus" projects such as writing songs, co-writing, and releasing my first album, there's the LOOMING "always-there" task of total social media management.

#3. "BowJour" - last year I helped co-create the brand and concept BowJour, (www.youtube.com/bowjour) in which my best friend/roommate and I write & produce high-quality inspirational, intelligent, and comedic content, released mainly through YouTube videos and images/quotes throughout social media. We have a full website, and as always, the social media smorgasboard. We also write and produce short films and are aspiring towards future expansion into features, so I need projects for those ideas to begin flourishing as well.

#4: "Overhaul" - separate from my artist career and music writing is Overhaul, my a cappella group. We convene weekly to rehearse, brainstorm, arrange songs together as a group, perform live around LA, and post videos. Of course, that full load of engagement stems off this FIFTH, completely separate social media handle (job #1 has two handles).

#5: "Uh ... Meee?" I guess I need room for Household, Bills/Admin, Daily Routines, Errands, and such - but honestly, I'm not sure how to distinguish between my list of stand-alone adventures what is a "personal" project sort and which is a "work". Ultimately at the moment, Firm Body Evolution provides a salary that pays the majority of my bills, but I hope to be watering all other stems to eventually supercede. Because of this current financial setup, I would classify FBE as my "work" and other creative pursuits more on the "personal" side... 

Now what do you think would be the best way to split and/or organize so I don't go crazy pulling my hair out?!

It seems to me that whenever I Google "How I Organize Todoist Projects", either only a tiny section of the project list is used for learning example, or the reviewer has just one career. A singular setup like this easily assigns projects and tasks to simply "work" and "personal", but what about those who are left needing more? And concerning social media - would it be conducive to build five separate "Social Media" sub-projects tucked under each parent creative (and color-coded), or just compile all social media tasks across the board into one lump sum?

Geez ... this is a lot of stuff ... the anxiety is kicking in again! I may seem crazy for trying to perfect this organizing tactic, but I'm determined to find the ultimate GTD for me. Hopefully other multi-career creatives will relate!

The highest of gratitudes will commence (and subsequently spread through hierarchies of social media) if you would enlighten me with any tips, tricks, and advice on this topic! Perhaps you would even be willing to share your full project list as an example?

From one creative-mind-seeking-productivity-perfection to another, thank you in advance for the support! ;-)

Android beta is showing tasks for projects that are deleted when I look at task assigned to a label.

Web version is showing 19 tasks against @groundworks, android beta version showing 43. 

It's possible to recreate this problem, create 2 projects, add a task to each with the same label, delete one project. In web version the tasks from the deleted project disappear, in the android version the label still shows two tasks - one without an assigned project (orphaned).

Reminders / Android notification are broken!

In the first beta 4.0-beta I got reminders in my notification list on Android, but when I tapped on it I was led to the same wrong task and after leaving Todoist the reminder was still in the notification list - doesn't matter which reminder I tapped.

Since Updating to to 4.0-beta1 (or greater, now beta3) I get no (push) reminder on my tablet (Nexus 7 with Todoist 4.0-beta), but the same reminders work on my phone (Nexus 4 with Todoist 3.2.3)!

It doesn't matter if I set a reminder on my table (local), phone or in the web app. The reminders only appear on the phone  and not on my tablet! So, I do not anything wrong by setting reminders and Notifications are turned on in the app on Nexus 7.
I think it's not a sync problem, but is a bug in 4.0.

What I'm wondering about is that one recurring reminder and the "due overview" appeared in the notification list. After snoozing the recurring reminder it also never appeared again!

Todoist 4.0-beta2 is out

Thanks for the testing so far! We've caught a few bugs we're sure would slip by if it wasn't for you.

The new release should fix most bugs you've encountered. We still have a few on our list and we'll keep working on them towards a more stable release. More beta versions will come out soon.

Once again, please give the new features a try and report back if you hit any trouble. Thanks!

I have a request on the Chrome Todoist plugin:  _Pin to top of screen_  
It currently allows you to pop-out the Todoist box, but if you are trying to copy to and from Todoist, it minimizes if you click away from it.  Anyone else with me on this?  Thanks.

When viewing notes, the notes appear to be justified to the bottom of the screen, this looks and feels wrong. When the screen is rotated to landscape orientation and back to portrait, the notes now appear at the top of the screen. Can this behaviour be fixed please.

+Steve Jones unfortunately our design team doesn't find that consistent with other apps, so for now we don't plan to change that behaviour... having said this, you're more than welcome to add this to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote_Android/. If there is popular demand for this we'll definitely look into it!

Todoist is now in beta

We're now in the beta stage of our next release. You can try out our latest beta by downloading it directly from the Google Play Store (if you're a beta tester, of course).

It includes file support and media previews in notes and comments. You can:
- Upload local files (photos, sound recordings, or any file you have in your device up to 20MB). This is a premium feature.
- Add files from your Dropbox or Google Drive.
- View images, play videos and sound recordings without ever leaving the app, provided your Android version supports the file type.
- Preview the files inline.
- See thumbnails from links of popular media sites like YouTube, Flickr, and many others.

We'd love if you could try our new features and report back any bugs you find. Considering we're dealing with media, and this is one of the few places where the Android fragmentation really shows, your feedback is extremely valuable. As always, you're very welcome to invite friends and family to this community.

Thank you!
