Indent in Next 7 Days View / Outlook Calendar Issue

GK

I'm still trying to work out the kinks I'm encountering gettin up and running with Todoist.

I didn't realize until now that I don't have the ability to indent tasks while in the Today or Next 7 Days view. At least I can't find out how. If this does not exist, are you working toward implementing the feature? I know that I can do this within the Project itself, but often you need to reorder and indent tasks as they appear outside of the project. I do know about using an asterisk to make a "sub-task" appear with no box. This will have to work in the interim if there is no other solution.

I inquired about an Outlook issue yesterday - it was mostly resolved, but I think that the plug-in just still has kinks. The menu that is supposed to appear when you click the grey bar at top does not appear. I was provided with a work around so I can make that work. But my calendar - the one that appears when you are selecting your date - completely cuts off Saturdays from the right side of the calendar. It has nothing to do with resizing the Todoist bar - it doesn't help whatsoever. This is a problem because it removes the ability to simply click on the date to populate the date box. Since your date system is a bit backward from the way we do it in America, it takes slightly more effort to do it manually. Has this "calendar cut off" been reported?

Thank you.

Hello,

it is possible to indent tasks on the "7 days" view in the Outlook plugin. To do so, you'll need to use the "reorder" icon on the left side of each task and the 1-4 keys. Hover over a task, "grab" the task by the reordering icon on the left with the left mouse button and while holding it, you can change its indent level by pressing the number keys: 1, 2, 3 or 4 on your keyboard.

The asterisk option does not create an actual sub-task. It can be used to create a "header" under which you can place groups of tasks.

I'm sorry for the misleading information about the "Reload/Login" menu, there seems to be an issue with it (it used to appear before) and I have already forwarded this to the developers.

As for the calendar issue - I can't reproduce this. The calendar is indeed set to the "Monday through Sunday" week standard, but you can go to the Todoist preferences (top-right corner on the Todoist website) and in the "General Settings", you can pick any day as the starting day for this mini calendar. Please do so and let me know if you'll still experience this issue.


Best regards,
David

Thanks again, David. Both of your instructions worked perfectly. The indentation was simple, and the calendar now shows all seven days when I edit the task date. Thank you once again!!! Have a nice week ...

I take it back. The indentation feature works, but as soon as I refresh (this is on the actual Website in my account), it reverts back to non-indented. It also does not translate to Outlook. When I make the same change in Outlook, it also disappears upon refresh. I'll live without it for now, but please advise if this is indeed coming. I seem to be running into a lot of issues for something that seemed to simple and seamless in the beginning - that was what drew me to your product. I can be patient IF you tell me it's going to get better - I want to support your effort.

Hello,

this problem has now been fixed, it should not be possible to indent tasks on the "today" or "7 days" view. Please access a particular project to change the structure of its tasks.


Best regards,
David
