Android widget waisting space

Hello,
My ToDoist widget (3x4) is waisting space. I have about 8 tasks for today and it shows only 1 row per page instead of 3-4 (on the 4x4 widget it shows 2 rows instead of 4-5). There would be enough space for 3-4 as well. Turning pages at every single task is very tiring and waisting time.
Best solution would be (I think) if it was possible that every day had 1 page and we could just scroll down every day if there are more than 3-4 tasks.
Regards,
Detti

Hello Dömötör,

Please tell me - what version of Android are you using? On newer Android versions, our widget can be scrolled and surely shouldn't show just one task at a time.

Could you please send a screenshot showing this issue to david@todoist.com and brendon@doist.io ?


Best regards,
David

Dömötör,

Thank you for the screenshot. So it shows one task even though there should be multiple tasks due today on this list?

Regarding scrolling - this is indeed caused by the older Android version and it unfortunately won't be possible because this Android version doesn't support scrolling within widgets (that's why we've added the page-based navigation for these Android version).


Best regards,
David

Hello David,

Thank you for the quick and friendly support.
I am sorry it cannot be fixed, it seems I will need a new phone soon ;)

Kind regards,
Detti
(Dömötör is my lastname, as the names' order is reverse in Hungary ;) )

It's ok, don't worry, my name was displayed in a wrong way, you shouldn't know as this order is common only in a few countries in the world ;)
By the way, it's weird that it still shows in the wrong order, although I changed it on my Google account to the English format. Whatever ;)

All the best,
Detti
