Hello,

Unfortunately, the browser that comes with the Nook is un-supported at this time.

Please try heading to this address on the Nook and let me know if you are able to move tasks/projects around http://todoist.com/m

At the bottom of that page once you are logged in, click on "Manage Projects". This will allow you to drag projects up and down.

To move a task, click on one of the views (Today, or a Project), and then at the bottom click "Manage Tasks just as the Projects area.

Thanks,
Brendon.

I can get to the project and task pages, but I can not drag a project or task.

Hello Pa,

Please try to access Todoist.com directly on a desktop computer and you'll see that when you hover over a task, it shows 2 new icons - the one on the left which can be used to drag & drop project and the gear icon on the right which accesses the task's menu.

Then, on your tablet, try to tap the area after the task's date, that is on the far right side. This should bring up the gear menu and one of the options there is "Move to another project".


Best regards,
David

David,

Nothing happens when I tap the area after the task's date.

My initial questions was focused on reordering projects up or down and reordering tasks within a project up or down on the Nook tablet. From your suggestion, I now know that I can also not move a task to a different project on the Nook tablet. All of these operations work fine on the website and on the Windows app.

Pa,

Sorry for the misunderstanding, in that case - the handle to reorder tasks is the one on the left side.

We have a different interface especially for mobile touch-controlled devices which should make reordering tasks easier. You can access it at https://todoist.com/m


Best regards,
David

Pa,

Also, the handle and the gear icon I was referring to are on the full web-app view. If you are actually using the mobile view, you could try to access the full web-view at https://todoist.com/m/forceRegular


Best regards,
David

David,

I am now able to see the handle on the left of the task and the gear icon on the right of the task after taping either end of the task. I can open the options on the gear, but I can not move the task up or down with the handle.

As I mentioned above I can not drag a project or task in http://todoist.com/m on the tablet. However, I can drag them on the mobile site on my PC.

Pa,

Please make sure (with your finger) you drag it right away, some people have a habit of holding and then dragging. The mobile version of out site is quite sensitive and requires you to move it instantly, no pausing.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Dragging drags the whole screen, not the task. I zoomed in to make certain that I am dragging the handle. If I delay dragging, a popup window gives the option to view or save the image.

Pa,

Which version of the Nook do you have? If you happen to have the HD or HD+ version you should be able to download our app from the Google PlayStore. If you don't want to use our app, you should also be able to download another browser such as Chrome onto it and our website should work much better from there.

If that isn't the case, and you have one of the non HD versions, unfortunately there isn't much we can do, as it does not use a supported browser.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Brandon,
I have the Nook Tablet version 1.4.3, not HD and only B&N approved apps. I may root it some day and get your app. My hope is that B&N will update mine and allow all apps, as they did with the newer models recently.
