Frequently Asked Questions
How do I set up a recurring checklist?
If you don’t need to track past performance, then you can create a List with Checkmarks. To clear all checkmarks, tap the Action button (top right corner) and choose Clear List Bullets.
If you do want to track past performance, then create a folder (e.g. “My Daily Checklist”) and inside that folder create a Yes/No category for each checklist item.
How can I share a category (e.g. to-do list) with someone?
You can share one or more categories via AirDrop. To enable sharing, tap the Settings button (bottom right corner on the main screen), then go to Advanced Options and turn AirDrop ON. When you go back to the main screen, you’ll find the AirDrop button at the bottom of the screen.
AirDrop sharing works just like two-way sync. For example, if you share a “Shopping List” and then add more items to the list, the next time you share it, the recipient will receive just the latest changes and the lists will get merged.
How do I set reminders?
You can add a reminder to any note in a list. Tap on the list item of your choice, then tap the Reminder button at the bottom right corner.
How do I change category units e.g. lbs to kg?
Tap on the category, go to the Day view, tap the Action button (top right corner) and then choose Category Settings.
