Thanks a lot, Erica, good to know there’s an alternative should my “fifth” card fail one day. For now, it’s been working fine for monthly payments since the summer, so I’m sure it will work fine for the annual payment next week, too. The working card is Visa, while the rejected ones were all Mastercards, I think, but it’s weird because I’ve been using them for years for purchases from US Amazon, for instance. I no longer remember the error messages (from early September or so?), but they were terse one-liners simply announcing the payment had failed, with no specific reason given.
Yes, I was so blown away by Dynalist after discovering it I became a paying Pro user right away. And now I’m confident I can stay here for the full year. Toodledo is still sputtering along, but even if it goes away completely one day, I think I could replace its functionality satisfactorily with Dynalist.
Prior to discovering Dynalist, I was considering Remember The Milk or Amazing Marvin as Toodledo replacements (Todoist and TickTick didn’t impress me in my testing), but the ability, in Dynalist, to bookmark time-based search results, is a life-saver.
So, I have set up Dynalist bookmarks such as Overdue, Overdue & Today, Today & Tomorrow, Next 3 Days, Next 7 Days, Next 14 Days, Next Month, and Next Quarter, and the speed with which you can click through all these in Dynalist is quite wonderful, and in a way even more impressive than in Toodledo, the native to-do app. The heading sizes and color highlights in Dynalist are, I find, nice (and even richer, in fact) replacements for Toodledo’s priority levels. Of course, Toodledo offers more task-specific features, but I could survive without them if need be.
In particular, as mentioned, the note-taking functionality in Toodledo is very poor, so I have transferred all of my task notes from Toodledo to Dynalist, putting links to Dynalist docs in Toodledo tasks’ note fields instead.
But Dynalist can do so much more than just to serve as a to-do list. That’s the great thing about it. I’ve been using Dynalist to prepare outlines for articles I write, for instance. And I’ve been using Dynalist to share professional feedback with my team members, and they’ve been impressed by the clear structure of those feedback notes as offered by Dynalist. They couldn’t quite believe they could even insert their own reactions to the feedback notes without having to log in or set up their own Dynalist accounts, so that’s some amazing functionality for the professional user.
In short, to reply to Alem’s question, Dynalist has been a revelation.
