I have been running Due Today on Android almost since day one(a few years now it seems) and just started to delve more into the sync for use with my tasks on a computer.

I tried the Win software when it was first released but it was somewhat buggy and I didn't need anything on the comp more than what Toodledo had to offer, so I left it alone. Now I'm looking to use the sync feature more, and see that Toodledo doesn't exactly match up with Due Today - mostly the subfolders setup etc. I use a lot of subfolders/sub tasks in Due Today, so I can't do without them.

So my question first is, does the Windows software retain the same folder structure etc as the app?

Also, my main question is how is the syncing process with Lakeridge performed to go into the app on my computer? Does it go through the LakeRidge server first? If so, can it be directed into my own server instead and then read by the app on my computer? I would prefer having it this way for security purposes, rather than uploading to some intermediate cloud storage.

You can directly sync with Toodledo, it is an option within the app.  Have you tried creating a test account or test folder structure to see if this will fix your problem with sub-folders?  Have you considered using sub-tasks?  I use sub-tasks all the time within folders.  Also, you bring up a good point about security.

 

Is the application data encrypted en route to Lakeridge or Toodledo?  Can the data be viewed when it arrives at Lakeridge servers?

Ur saying just use sub tasks instead of sub folders?
I could try this, but can u convert a folder to a task and all tasks within to sub tasks? Sounds like it will take some work!
Thanks for the suggestion!

Yes, the project structure will be retained. In fact, everything should be synced from your Android device exactly as it appears there.

 

Also, my main question is how is the syncing process with Lakeridge performed to go into the app on my computer? Does it go through the LakeRidge server first? If so, can it be directed into my own server instead and then read by the app on my computer? I would prefer having it this way for security purposes, rather than uploading to some intermediate cloud storage.

For right now, it will only sync with my server. From there the individual clients pull the data off during the sync operations. I'm currently considering licensing the server out for personal use. That was actually one of my original goals with the server and still is. I'm a firm believer in being in control of your own data. However, I'm still in the process of stabilizing the server, but I think it's nearly there.

 

Is the application data encrypted en route to Lakeridge or Toodledo?

The quick answer to this is no. ToodleDo only supports SSL encryption on Pro accounts. This is something that Due Today is going to be supporting in the next minor release (it's that close on my roadmap).

 

As for SSL encryption to my server, up until the recent NSA scandal it hadn't been a priority. Now I'm working on getting an SSL certificate so that we can get the data encrypted right away.

...So true.  It would be nice if there was an option to encrypt the traffic.  Once the data is encrypted, it would be nice to see the CA information from within the app (Windows / Android).

I'm definitely working on something that I think will work.
