If you haven’t had a chance to check out our new app, My.Agenda, we encourage you to do so. It’s the starter edition of our complete organizer app, LifeTopix, for those of you who want to start simple, but find that the crowd of overly simplistic, one-trick pony apps just don’t do enough.
This is the second in a series of Quick Start videos to show you how to work with the out-of-the-box features of My.Agenda. This video explains how to work with Location Services and Near Me.
For those of you who are new to My.Agenda, it’s a complete organizer and planner app with appointments, todos, reminders, and tasks.
It’s the starter edition of our complete organizer app, LifeTopix, for anyone who wants to start simple, but finds that the crowd of overly simplistic, one-trick pony apps just don’t do enough.
What’s super about My.Agenda is your to-dos, checklists, appointments, reminders, and more are all connected and in one place, which eliminates the app hopping that you do when you install a flock of apps to do many different, disconnected things.
Today, I’m going to quickly show you how to work with the Near Me feature in My.Agenda.
Keep in mind that the Near Me feature requires that you enable Location Services on your device. On the iPhone, you can find the Location Services in the Privacy Settings. Make sure that My.Agenda is set to ON. The first time you try to set the location for an object in My.Agenda, you will be asked if you want to allow My.Agenda to be able to use your current location — you must grant this request in order to have access to the Near Me feature.
What’s great about My.Agenda is it allows you to manage your life in one place. Instantly, when you go to the Agenda view, you can see your to-do lists, what’s important today, tomorrow, and the next seven days.
The Near Me feature gives you one-tap access to a view of the My.Agenda items that are in the vicinity of your current location. This allows you to better plan your schedule based on the location of your tasks, appointments, and other items on your agenda.
Out of the box, tasks and appointments are supported in the Near Me view. If you’ve purchased My.Agenda topics or packs, this feature is extended to shopping items, events, notes, audio, photos, and videos.
In order for an item to be included in the Near Me view, you must have previously set the location for that item. Keep in mind you can change the number of miles or kilometers for the vicinity.
So lets talk about how you can set a location for an item in My.Agenda. If you go to your Calendar, find the item that you wish to find, or Add. In this case, it’ll be the Scuba Diving appointment. So if you tap it, you’ll find Location Not Set. Tap it and you can set a location to your current location or you can specify and show on map. I’m going to type Lake Travis as the location and it’ll find it. I can save and then I’ll return to the Near Me view. And you’ll see that Scuba Diving has been added to Near Me. I can tap here and find the details.
