      Hi Grace,

      Thank you for reaching out to us.

      Yes. You can print individual tasks from the task detail views and all tasks in a project from the project detail views. To print, tap on the button with the action icon (near the top of the view) to bring up the print pop up menu and tap on print.

      Should you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact us again.

      Hi Jodhi,

      Thank you for reaching out to us!

      If you’ve purchased LifeTopix or LifeTopix pack in-app purchase in any of our other products, along with quite a few other features, you will get the ability to add custom Context Tags with custom colors for various items.

      The context tags show below the icon of the items with their color in list views sections of the month and year calendar views. Each of the context tags can be assigned a color and they show up as colored tags for each context. We allow for overriding the item colors with the context color (instead of topic color) in our settings view. This way you can give items context tags as needed (for matching your various staff groups).

      Hope that helps!

    My.Agenda is displaying a badge of “2”. How do I find out what these two things are. I can’t find them anywhere.

      Hi Preston,

      Thank you for reaching out to us!

      The badge on the My.Agenda icon displays the number of overdue items in your agenda (Home) view. You can tap on the “Overdue” tile in the Home (Agenda) view to view the overdue items (like Shopping Items & Tasks).

      Also, please note that you can disable the badge on the My.Agenda icon by opening the iOS Settings App > Scroll down to “My.Agenda” > Icon Badge > Toggle the slider to Off.

      Should you have any further questions or comments, do not hesitate to contact us again.

      Hi Sherri,

      Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us with your question.

      You can share a task, event, project, note, trip and other items in LifeTopix by opening the detail for the item and then tapping on the circular action button labeled “Share” (located below the title of the item). This will allow you to share the item with others via “FaceBook”, “Twitter”, email and text message.

      LIfeTopix maintains all items that are created in LifeTopix that have dates in the calendar views. You can share these with the method described above.
      LifeTopix allows you view and add items to your iOS Calendar app as well. If you wish to share an item that is in the iOS Calendar app then you can open the calendar item in the iOS Calendar app and select “Edit” at the top right of the screen. Scroll down to the “Invitees” item and select the contacts you want to share the item with.

    I have saved a file several times when the app asks if I want to save it in ‘My Documents’. But I don’t see/can’t find ‘My Documents’ in the tabs.

        SO many icons & I have to actually Heit (open) each one to find out what it is. Where do I find ‘My Topics’?
        And is there some kind of How-To I can look at on a PC instead of this phone?

    I have just started using lifetoppix and it just what I have been looking for. My only issue is that there seems to be a long delay when syncing between devices. I set up a task yesterday afternoon on my iPad with crucial info on but was unable to access it at work today? It only appeared later on tonight. I have set up sync to Dropbox , is there a way to automatically sync at start or close in the app?

      Simon,

      Thanks for reaching out to us!

      When you make a change on one device, it takes a few seconds for the change to get pushed up to Dropbox. If you close the app right away, it does not get a chance to do that (since Apple limits what apps can do when they are in the background). When you make a change, you will see a a green circle rotating around the lightArrow icon’s white dot on the top left of the screen. Let it complete. FYI, when the app is running (app screen is up) – it automatically syncs every 45 seconds or so. You can force a sync to happen right away by doing a pulldown to refresh in the Home view or the Recent view. You can do the same on the other device to get the changes. You can force a sync also from the Quick Menu on bottom left – tap on the cloud icon and then tap on Sync Now. That also forces a sync to happen (takes a few seconds).

      So, as long as you do not close the app right away after making a change (give it a few seconds, or force a sync), then you’ll be fine.

      Please let us know if that does not work well for you. If necessary, we can set up a phone call to walk through the steps if you still have an issue. If you want that, please reach out to us at support@lightarrow.com

    I’m so happy to hear about IMAP in future updates. Any ideas for a work around for those of us not using one of the currently supported mail services? A way to send/email the app tasks that will end up in the inbox like with Toodledoo? Also, I imported my Toodledoo tasks but it looks like the contexts didn’t transfer over. Any chance of this function being in a future update?

    Thanks!!

      We currently support only Gmail email accounts (including business accounts), Yahoo email, iCloud email and Outlook/Live.com email accounts. There is no workaround for other email types.

      1. Support for custom IMAP email accounts
      2. Context support for Toodledo
