When will todoist in iphone support notes?


The iOS app doesn't support the notes (*) that we can enter in the webversion, and so I have different counts of tasks in the lists because of it.

When will we be able to see the different platforms with the same features?

Best regards,

Hello Alex,

Our app fully support task notes. Regarding the asterisk * support for tasks without a checkbox, this is a deprecated feature that we'll no longer support due to a lot of issues and difficulties in maintaining it across all platforms we support.

However, if you need to crate a separate list of tasks related to a certain project, we recommend to use sub-projects instead.

Hello David,

thanks for your reply but this means that notes will be removed from the webapp also:

I ask this because I currently have lists like this:

and inside the subproject I have

* Name of a header
Multiple subtasks

Which means that I have 5 levels that I can't pass to projects because it only allows me a maximum of 4 levels of hierarchy

Any ideias?

You can have a total of a 9-level task tree using:

| - Sub-project
| - | - Sub-sub-project
| - | - | - Sub-sub-sub-project

and inside have:

| - Sub-task
| - | - Sub-sub-task
| - | - | - Sub-sub-sub-task
| - | - | - | - Sub-sub-sub-sub-task

That said, please try to convert any "header hierarchy" to sub and sub-sub-sub-project hierarchies and then you can start with tasks inside the 4th level sub-projects.

Alternatively, you could as well simply use !! bold !! text formatting (between two exclamation marks) to just mark a regular task as "a header" and not complete it.
