NEXT features live??


Hi: I'm intrigued by the new features, but I don't see them active in my premium account yet. Am I missing something?

I don't see where I can assign people to a task. And, what exactly is the visualizing your scheduling? Is that the icons for choosing dates that I see?

Thanks so much.

Hi Henk,

Yes those are the icons you see when you right click on a task, Today, Tomorrow etc. Please log out and back in again to make sure you have all the updated features.

I am also having this issue or at least I have no idea how to add someone to the account to delegate tasks to and nor do I see an option to delegate a task to the person when creating a task such as in the promo video.

I just logged out and logged back in again per your recommendation.

There has only been one other report of a user not having the options, and it resolved itself after a short amount of time. I suggest waiting a bit, and logging out again, clearing the cache for your browser and signing back into it.

I read in another thread that you must first right click a project and share the project in order to share tasks. If you haven't shared a project, perhaps the option to share tasks doesn't show?

Yes, you need to right click a project and choose "Share Project" first before sharing tasks. I should have made that clear, I was thinking of another thread, sorry.

I love todoist. I like the look of the website. But I just want a plain written statement of what something does and how to do it. I don't want to see a video advertisement of a couple having a romantic tryst when I'm just trying to figure out how to do something.

I honestly could not even figure out if todoist next was a new PRODUCT or just an upgrade to the existing one.

Where on the 'help' files does it say to share a project first? Now I know that, it's easy. Really, instruction would help.

Similarly, I see the icons now for visual organization, because you showed a screen shot in your add (since there aren't instructions). But I do not know how that makes it more visually organized than it was before. It might - but I can't tell that from what I can read or what I find in the help files.

I appreciate your rapid answers to these questions. But a manual would help. Really.

Reading is much faster than video, even though video can be wonderful for some types of communication - including how to's.
