Getting Focused with Toodledo Highlighter Google Chrome Extension

with one comment

I recently discovered very interesting task manager – Toodledo. I’m using GTD to boost my productivity and I find that with Toodledo you can actually implement any workflow you want nicely. And, as always, nothing comes without problems. I find user interface a little bit outdated and impacted with lots of functionality. I hope it will be improved in future, but for now I tried to fix one of the aspects of this. For me it was hard to focus on on concrete set of fields I want to work with. In multi-line mode you can’t see all of them (only when you expand task, but then it becomes even harder to focus). In the table mode, from the other hand, you can see all of them at once and they all look the same. I find it difficalt to focus on some set of fields without some visual hints like colors or icons. So I decided to fix this with google chrome plugin. I decided to share it with everybody, so feel free to install it from this page. Hope you also will find it helpful, any feedback is highly appreciated!

More information about install/download/support can be found of this dedicated page:

Toodledo Highlighter

And here are some screenshots. Table view looks like this (with Custom Layout Enabled option unchecked):


Table view with Custom Layout Enabled option checked (as you can see, all fields are shown – you can configure it in page action):

Multi-line mode also shows colors:

And here is configuration page. Here you can enable/disable extension or change field visibility and colors (text and background color):
