FAQ


How do I synchronize my data to the cloud, my computer, iPhone, iPad, and Android device?

You can manually synchronize your data to the cloud, computers, iPhones, iPads, Android tablets and Android smartphones by selecting the sync button [ button_sync ]. TaskLabels also automatically synchronizes your data when:

  1. Logging in
  2. Logging out
  3. Sharing information
  4. Minimizing/Maximizing the app

Your TaskLabels data is also automatically encrypted when it is sync’d so it is safe and secure.

 

How do I save my new TaskLabels settings?

Your new settings will be saved automatically once you change them. However, if you happen to delete your TaskLabels cookies on your computer’s browser, then TaskLabels will revert to its default settings. If you accidentally delete your cookies, simply reset your TaskLabels settings to suit your preference.

What separates TaskLabels from other to-do list apps?

TaskLabels is a powerful yet user-friendly application that allows you the freedom to assign dates and priority levels as well as arrange your tasks under multiple labels.

For example, create the task “Buy Dave’s b-day gift” and label it under “Family Gifts”.You can then attach more labels to the task in seconds, such as “Mall Shopping List” and/or “Things to do before June”. Your task will appear instantly under those labels without having to re-enter the information. Once you complete that task, you can select the blue check-mark and it will be marked as complete in any label it appears under. This remarkable function can help you to greatly improve your time efficiency and organization.

 

What can I use TaskLabels for?

Here are just a few examples of topics people have used TaskLabels for: holiday gift lists, meeting agendas, places you wish to travel, grocery lists, New Year’s resolutions, tips for getting in shape, wish lists, lifelong/long-term/short-term personal goals, books to read, movie recommendations, contacts in New York, skills you possess or want to acquire, exam dates, allergies of you or others, work tasks, personal budgets, favorite quotes, guest lists, household chores, IOUs, packing lists, websites to check out, things to do in Colorado and more.

Can I share my Labels with others?

Yes, you can now Share any Labels of your choosing. Collaborate with coworkers and friends by allowing users to edit and add to your Labels. You can also Share Labels and mark them as Read-Only if you’d like other users to only be able to view them.

And if the people you want to share the Labels with don’t use TaskLabels, you can simply e-mail them an embedded Label’s list with 2 simple clicks!

 

How can TaskLabels help me achieve my goals?

With TaskLabels you can quickly create tasks and labels, set priorities and due dates and rearrange your workload into bite-sized pieces with ease. For example, create the task “Learn to Speak Spanish” and you can file it under a label such as “My Bucket List”. Then you can easily add it to other labels such as “To Do in 2012” and/or “Research” without having to re-enter the task. This seemingly simple feature can greatly help you to accomplish more.

Can I Sort My Labels?

We currently do not provide a way to manually sort labels. However, we created a Favorites section (Denoted by the star icon: ) that allows users to easily arrange and manage labels that are frequently used. The Favorites section displays icons, each label’s name, the number of tasks in each label, and they are all color coded. Labels highlighted in red mean that one or more of the tasks in the label is overdue.

To add a label to your list of favorites:

  1. Select the plus sign (add_icon) followed by My Favorite Labels.
  2. Tick the relevant labels and select Save.

To view your favorites, select the Favorites icon ().

To rearrange your favorites on your iPhone or iPad: Tap, hold and then drag the label to its new location. From an Android device: Long hold, then drag the label to its new location. Note: There is no sorting function in the Favorites section of the web version.

Step 3: To un-complete a task, tap on the task indicator and your task will be un-ticked and un-highlighted.

NOTE: Ticking and un-ticking are great ways to keep track of recurring tasks in recurring labels such as a grocery list. E.G., if you buy milk every week, tick it off once you put it in your basket and the following week un-tick all the relevant items in your grocery list and buy them again!
