The perfect web-based to-do app

I'm lookin for the perfect web based To-Do solution for my company.

The to-do app is mostly for handling simple things that need to be done every day or every week within our company. Some kind of web-based solution with an iPad/iPhone client would be ideal

Here's the basic stuff.
  • Managers need to be able to create to-do lists for their department. Some of the to-dos will be common for all departments, some specific to each department. So ideally we would have a web-based solution.
  • It would be great if the managers could add notes (and/or attachments) to their to-do items to further explain how the to-dos should be completed.
  • We need to be able to add recurring to-dos. Both those that happen every day, every week and every month.
  • The staff in each department would access their to-do lists either via the web or an iPhone/iPad app.
  • It would be great if the managers could get some verification once the staff has completed a specific task or group of tasks.
Cost is not a big issue here, we're willing to pay for the right solution.

You should be able to do everything you want with Toodledo.

I don't use the collaboration features myself, but they seem to cover all your requirements. Also the nice thing about Toodledo is it's enormously flexible in the ways you can organize and view tasks, and also pretty good at enabling you to cut out any clutter that you don't want to use.

I write productivity (aka to-do) apps for the iPhone that sync with Toodledo. Toodledo is a great service, but it isn't what you want. Toodledo is meant for one person, maybe a couple that can add notes to each other's lists. What you want is way beyond what Toodledo was designed for.

I agree with Cool Papa Bell: Look at Basecamp.

Yeah, Basecamp is really nice.

Basecamp doesn't work for me because it doesn't have recurring tasks. I have tried it, and I use it for other stuff within the company.

I'm a bit late to the party here but Remember the Milk seems to meet all of your requirements including recurring tasks.
