    I am on a Treo 650, and until recently have been using Todo+ vs the integrated todo in dbk5/6. I have been experimenting with adding/editting todos from within dbk6 and found that when I create a bunch of (5-10) todos for tomorrow, dbk6 today page only picks up the first one - for awhile..

    Sometime later when I check the today page all the todos are listed. They are immediately visible however in the list page. It seems the today page only refreshes on a fairly long interval, it is more then a few minutes but I don't know how long.

    I find this delay in presenting the data on the today page frustrating.

    Am I missing something?

    Cheers

    Describe these "todos for tomorrow" a little more...are they dated? Are they marked with an advance? What are your settings in Preferences/ToDo Sorting? What are your settings in the Display Options for the Today view (and also on the "Tap to Select Items for Today view" screen)?

    Hi Bill!

    Thanks for jumping in...

    The todos are dated, genral advance 5days, sorting is dbk6 default, today>display options: todos->chkd, max = 10, incld undated->chkd, Appts->up to one week

    Generally, I have tweaked everything to support tiny fonts and give me lots of information - to my knowledge I have done nothing unusual to the preferences.

    I errored in the original post, while editting/adding todos in the list view, things appear instantly after entering - if you then jump to the today view you initially only get the appts for each day over the next week - no todos at all inthis view. I did this last night - this morning the today view contains the complete list of todo's at the bottom. In fact, now that I think on it, I would have expected todos for today to be below the today's appts...but that is a new question :-)

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure I understand:
    1. You're entering todos today, with tomorrow's date?

    2. "if you then jump to the today view you initially only get the appts for each day over the next week": you mean that only appointments show, but at some point today, todos with tomorrow's date are displayed on the Today screen?

    3. "I did this last night - this morning the today view contains the complete list of todo's at the bottom. I would have expected todos for today to be below the today's appts": I don't understand...what todo's are "at the bottom"? Are you saying that today's todos aren't displayed, but future ones are? What do you mean by the "complete list of todos"?

    Again, what are your settings in Preferences/ToDo Sorting?

What do you mean by the "complete list of todos"?



    Let me ask a basic question that may simplify this - Is the today view pref setting for Appts also for todos? ie if you have appts and todos over the next several days, will dbk6 present, in the today view both appts and todos by day? I had assumed it would...

    Again, what are your settings in Preferences/ToDo Sorting?
    1. mvc>Yes, entering todos, using drop down menus in the list view, for the rest of the week

    2. mvc>two part question: in the today view only appts show up initially ie immediately after entering some todos that should display based on pref setting Appts "Up to one week" *** wait an minute, I just realized that pref is for Appts - does that include/exclude todos?

    3. mvc>I am sorry this is confusing Bill, I don't mean to waste your time. Last night I loaded 10 todos for today. When I initially input them they immediately show up in the list view but not at all in the today view. Now this morning when I look at the today view the todos for today ( I think I am about to figure this out...sigh) now appear at the bottom of the display.

    4. mvc>I have not changed the default dbk6 sorting for todos>ascending/past due/due today/due soon/not due yet /dated/undated/urgent/priority/category/alpha/IconThanks again Bill.

    I think this is all going to come down to a poor assumption on my part, on how the today view was intended to be used.... I was thinking the today view, with pref for Appts set to: "Up to one Week" would present the week's appt and todos, by day. I am starting to get the feeling this wasn't the intent of Mr. Dewar.

    Cheers and thank you for your time, Bill

    You are correct: only past due and current todos will be displayed on the Today screen. It seemed that you were implying that you would sometimes see future-dated todos on the Today screen and that had me scratching my head.

    This begs the question: Am I the only one that thinks seeing appts and todos, by day on the today view might be useful? I realize it is tending toward a week or partial week view (sort of a list view I suppose) but the presentation of the today view I find attractive - call me silly...

    Thanks Bill, and sorry to burn up your time.
