NOTE: This help page applies to both LifeTopix (and other classic LightArrow apps) as well as to LightArrow Organizer for iOS and Mac. So, the screenshots and directions may vary slightly based on the app you’re using.
Checklists are multi-purpose items in your LightArrow app.
They’re used to remember a list of items that are required for a particular function (such as a packing list for a vacation), things to be done (such as things to do at work), or thoughts to be considered (such as important points at a meeting). Checklists can be used over and over again in your LightArrow app. For example, you can create a packing list for business trips and use it over and over in order to avoid forgetting things when you’re traveling. You can create checklists in many areas of your LightArrow app, but typically you’ll use the Agenda view, Dashboard view, or the Notes + Files topic to create, modify, and delete your checklists.
LightArrow app checklists are powerful because of the following reasons:
- Not just simple list items
- Powerful management features
- Include and Reuse as needed
- Managing Checklists
Not Just Simple List Items
LightArrow Checklists allow you to add more than just list items.
You can add Shopping Items, Tasks, Appointments, Reminders, Log Items, etc. along with regular list items.
The following screenshot shows all the types that can be added to the Checklist.
All the Tasks, Appointments, Reminders, and Shopping Items show up in the rest of the app, in their list views, as shown below..
Powerful Management Features
The Checklists have powerful management features like Context Tags, Clear all, Set all, Reorder, etc.
Context Tags are a another powerful way to organize your Checklists.
You can also Export, Print, and Copy this Checklist.
This is useful for collaboration via email or file, where you can export this Checklist and email it to another LightArrow App user who can import it from the email to get the same data as you.
Include And Reuse As Needed
Checklists are the most commonly used data items inside Topic objects. You can associate Checklists with Projects, Events, Trips, Notes, Assets, Visits, etc. Also, you can pin a Checklist in any of the Dashboard views or the Agenda view.
You can also copy Checklists and reuse them as needed.
As an example, you can take an existing daily Checklist, copy it and reuse it as a daily routine checklist.
There are various grouping options for checklists in the list view, as shown below in our Mac app screenshot. We’ll support the same on all of our iOS apps soon.
Checklists can be (optionally) pinned to an Agenda view, as well.
Also, Checklists show up in various Calendar views based on their due dates.
