Got an email from Todoist warning that the $29/year price for Todoist Premium was going to be raised on December 1st to $36/year, but that anyone who signs up before then can lock in the $29/year “for as long as you remain a Todoist customer.” (FYI they’ve long offered a 50% student/educator discount.)

I’ve never had the Premium version, but I’ve been looking for a task manager, and I really liked the immediate 2-way sync with Google Calendar in the free version, so I think I’m going to sign up for a year and see if I can get past my general ‘meh’ feelings about the app.

It is a good app, I must say, especially if you use subtasks for notes!

Thanks!  This didn’t occur to me.  I was aware of how to convert tasks into section headers but didn’t make the mental leap to actual to make a note outline under a task.  I’ll have to test that out since the actual task note ‘feature’ is the single worst thing about todoist.  I really miss making normal notes like almost every other task platform does.

I’m the guy who changes task managers as often as he changes socks. I am currently on ToDoist, and I always return to ToDoist. To encourage me to stop switching, I deleted Things and Omnifocus from my computer. I also deleted Pagico and am only using DropTask on the web.

I’m trying it again, with the 30-day free Premium trial. If I can get it to work I’ll sign up for a year and lock in the current rate.

But I’m still trying to figure out a few things, like how to create a task and from within it start checklisting subtasks. In OmniOutliner you can start a new subtask with Shift-Command-close_bracket (what they call ‘Add Inside’), and after hitting Enter you jump to a new sister subtask. And indenting an item to make it a subtask is just Tab, and outdenting is Shift-Tab

Todoist seems to have nothing similar (that I’ve found yet, at any rate) - you can add tasks but then you have to manually grab and move them to the right, either with mouse/trackpad or once selected by using Command-Option-RightArrow (which does not work for me in Chrome or Safari but does in the Todoist Mac app).

So, how do I create subtasks to a current task, and once in the beginning of a subtask checklist how do I create new sister-subtasks?

Am I doing something wrong?
