check all checkbox and collapse\expand button

RR

just want to feedback a usability issue. I usually create a lot of sublists and when i go quickly expand\collapse the list, i mistakenly click the checkbox thereby unintentionally check all the items in the sublists. This is not good if i have a long list because i have to remember which ones are done and which ones are not. maybe you can improve on how the checkbox and collapse\expand button are positioned. I love your app by the way. thanks

Is your 'top level' actually a 'Task' that needs to be completed, or just a title for the list of subtasks collected below?

If the 'top level', or Parent, isn't an Action that can be completed, maybe you could add an asterisk before the name; this will inhibit the creation of a checkbox, so when you are expanding and collapsing the list you will not be able to 'check the box'. You can still add subtasks (sublists) below this top level.

Might this work for you?


Best regards,

Tere are some frustrations on features with ToDoist, but that is one of the neatest, most helpful little features I have seen for thos of us who like to oganise tasks by headings, within one project!!!

I didn't know about this asterisk feature. I like it.
