How do I upgrade to the Premium Edition?

An upgrade (or any other modification to your account) can only be performed via the web version of NubiDo.  Click here to login to NubiDo and go directly to your Account settings.  Or, launch NubiDo for the Web, then click on the Settings icon (the gear shaped icon located at the top-right corner of the app) and then click on Account to view and/or modify your subscription.

What's the difference between a Project and a List?

The only difference is that a project is a container for multiple lists (which is a container for multiple tasks).  So use Projects when you want to group lists together based on a common theme or subject.

What's the function of the Today, Next/Upcoming and Someday lists?

The Today, Next / Upcoming and Someday lists are hybrid lists in that they’re capable of storing tasks directly within the lists as well as displaying tasks from other lists that have been explicitly actioned as “Today”, “Next” or “Someday”.

The Today list also displays tasks that are past due or due the current day.

The Next / Upcoming list also displays tasks that are upcoming (based on due date) within a user defined range (defaulted to one week).

How do I change the name of a Project or List after its been created?

Just double-click on the project to invoke the project editor.  In the editor, you can modify the name or specify a due date for the project or list.

How do I edit a task after its been created?

Similar to editing a project or list, just double-click on the task to invoke the task editor.  In the editor, you can modify any of the task attributes.

How do I manually re-order my tasks?

You can re-arrange items in one of two ways:

  1. Press down on a task (or list or project) and hold until it turns translucent.  Once translucent, you can drag it to the desired position on the list.
  2. Press the Edit button (the one in the shape of a pencil).  Once pressed, all tasks will display horizontal drag bars on the far right area of the task.  Press down on the bars and drag the row to the desired position on the list.

Select and edit multiple tasks at a time

You can select multiple tasks at a time by holding down the Command (Mac) or CTRL (PC) key and then by clicking on the desired tasks.  Once multiple tasks are selected, a task attribute toolbar will automatically appear at the head of the task list from which you can select one of several actions to perform for the selected tasks.

Quickly view attributes of a task without invoking the task editor

Each task displays clickable icons for the Notes, Recurrence, Tags and Due date attributes (see illustration below).  Click on the icon to quickly view and/or edit the attribute.

Use keyboard shortcuts to quickly action tasks

NubiDo has several useful keyboard shortcuts to help you work faster. See this blog entry for the full list of keyboard commands.

Automatically organize and clean up a task list

A very powerful feature, all task lists (with the exception of virtual task lists such as the one in the Tags view and Calendar view) contain a function that automatically organizes and cleans up the list.  Press the Auto-Organize button (see illustration below) and watch your task list automatically organize and clean itself up.  The Auto-Organize function is performed based on the following priorities:

  1. Overdue tasks
  2. Tasks due on the current day
  3. Tasks explicitly actioned as “Today”
  4. Tasks with a future due date
  5. Tasks that are active
  6. Completed tasks
