I’m using Todoist as well, and am waiting for the promised October ‘19 update, which is supposed to be based on a new foundation, remove a few edge-case features, and add a new kanban board view (which everyone has done or is doing). My subscription expires in a couple of months though, and if they don’t come out with needed improvements (better subtasks, and better UI at the top of my list) then I’m going to have to switch to something else.

I picked up the Todoist Foundations v12 beta today (October 8 release).  Projects can now have sections.  But I don’t see a Kanban view.  Maybe that will come later?

It’s the one big addition they’ve been promising since last year, so I really hope they’re far along with it.

Well, what I’m seeing in the beta is *sort of* like that.  It’s a bit confusing.  On the home page we can treat a project like a folder and add sub-projects, but when viewing the project you don’t see the sub-projects just the “Sections” of that project.  (And the “Sections” do not appear elsewhere in the UI.)  I’ll assume they are iterating toward a refined UI that is Kanban-ish.  Just not yet.

Hmm, it sounds like they hit a few roadblocks trying to implement that mock-up.

Interesting that a lot of other apps and app-services (TickTick, Ora, Notion, Quire, Airtable, Quip, Orangescrum, tidily.io, Paymo, Zenkit, Zoho Projects, Merlin Project [Mac only], Checklist [only in the Enterprise plan]) have be able to implement a native kanban view (and some add additional views, like timelines/GANTT and mindmap) for a while.

Todoist is a big player in the task management space, but in several ways it’s playing catch-up to competing products, while free products (and free tiers of competitive task managers or kanban boards) are eating the market from below.

TickTick just gained 2-way Google Calendar sync (although it’s periodic sync, not like Todoist’s immediate push-sync), and that was one unique feature that kept me happy staying with todoist. But if a year’s worth of promised change doesn’t offer what’s expected (for me that’s kanban view and usable subtasks) then I’ll have to looks elsewhere. Quire looks pretty nice, as do some of the other apps I mentioned above.
