  • Paste lines to separate subtasks

    Yeah I'll plan to implement this. I'm also hoping to implement a quick-add bar soon, and will also support pasting multiple lines into that. Dropping a link to tasks/tasks#1457 here
  • Can't find the option to pick map provider
    reddit.com/r/tasks | 2021-04-09
    I used to offer a choice between Mapbox and Google Maps, but I removed Mapbox from the Google Play build (more info here)
  • Etesync to replace Google calendar and contacts
    reddit.com/r/degoogle | 2021-04-04
    If the Etesync app does not provide a widget then it means I will need to rely on another app to display the information. I have yet to find a perfect FOSS solution to this problem. Simple calendar doesn't support tasks only, so if I am able to create tasks in Etesync calendar, it most likely wouldn't show (see Github issue here). Etar doesn't seem to be able to support the creation of tasks/reminders only as well. Tasks.org doesn't support recurrence beginning on start date, only on due/completion date (Github issue see here) which is hard to manage for recurring events with no presently known due/completion dates. Is there any good FOSS alternatives? Or am I doomed to keep opening events that start and end at the same time?
  • Setting different sort/view options per filter?

  • A reminder app with feature to add tasks on a specific over a year
    https://tasks.org might work
    Not sure, never tried it but I looked it up on F-Droid after you mentioned it. I recommend checking out https://tasks.org

  • Dependencies and moving away from Astrid sort?
    reddit.com/r/tasks | 2021-03-20
    Don't worry, Pure widget support is managed by this class, which is a separate thing from Astrid manual sorting. I don't have plans to remove this any time soon. The content provider doesn't cause me problems, unlike Astrid manual sorting...
  • How to properly set the duration of event in calendar?
    reddit.com/r/tasks | 2021-03-17
    Ok this is about tasks.org app creating events in google calendar.
    reddit.com/r/tasks | 2021-03-17
    Thanks for the feedback. Start dates are a relatively new feature and I need to address this. You can subscribe to this issue if you would like to receive a notification when this has been implemented
  • My interpretation of a text-only digital bujo
    Actually, I do like bujo as a hacked improvement of the simple bullet journal I'd been doing for my work, and I have been building on it for the past two weeks to track my activities and to-dos for my day job. But my home life is much more dynamic and I track my schedule with a combination of Google Calendar and the Tasks.org Android to-do app. They are much better at nagging me to do things. For self-tracking strategies, I'm pretty sold on Google Fit and using various devices/apps to populate that data.
  • Notification issue and default calender issue
    reddit.com/r/tasks | 2021-03-12
    If you use 'When overdue' reminders you'll get a new notification ever 24 hours after the original due date. I'm hoping to make this interval configurable in the future (tasks/tasks#3)
  • The open calendar, task and note space is a mess
    I ended up switching to aCalendar+ on Android which integrates tasks into the calendar quite nicely and works by leveraging the tasks.org app as well.
