WHAT CAN I DO HERE?

The Agenda view or Home view pro­vides an overview or out­line of the things that you need to accom­plish today, tomor­row, and the next seven days in a con­ve­nient list view. This view keeps all your impor­tant things top of mind and pro­vides easy access for man­ag­ing these items. This is the view that you would typ­i­cally look at first thing in the morn­ing and through­out the day. Take note that the items that dis­play on your Agenda are con­fig­urable through the fil­ter. From your Agenda, you can cre­ate to-do lists (check­lists) and most other LightAr­row app items on the fly.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS

Fil­ters: The fil­ter exam­ines the cal­en­dars and types of items that you request to show on the Agenda view, and then presents qual­i­fy­ing types of items in the Agenda view.

Hot List: The abil­ity to add your favorite and most-commonly used views and items to the “Hot List” view for easy access. This saves you time in nav­i­gat­ing to a frequently-used view, which might be buried inside dif­fer­ent topics.

Quick Add: The abil­ity to quickly add a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent types of items directly from the Agenda view or Quick Menu.

FILTERS

The fil­ter icon at the top-right of the Agenda view enables con­fig­u­ra­tion of the items you wish to show or hide in this view. If you are see­ing items that you don’t want to see or if you want to see items you believe are miss­ing, this is the first place you should check. For exam­ple, if you’re not see­ing events from your cal­en­dars (such as Google cal­en­dars) or LightAr­row app items, tap the fil­ter icon to see what’s fil­tered out from the view.

Tap­ping the check­boxes enable or dis­able the view­ing of the items that are listed. You can show the cal­en­dars you wish to view events from (such as iCloud, Exchange, Google, Yahoo, Aol., or Outlook.com) and you can choose whether or not to show iOS reminders. You can also choose the types of LightAr­row app items you wish to hide or show, such as closed items, appoint­ments, bill pay­ments, events, expenses, notes with date tag, occa­sion reminders, projects, quick inbox items, check­lists, reminders, shop­ping items, shop­ping lists, tasks, trips, vis­its, health stats, med­ica­tion, nutri­tion stats, activ­ity, or well­ness stats.
