I’m slowly getting started with OF3 on iOS. I want to use it to make a shopping list/errands list but I’ve been unable to find anyone’s exact “how-to” to do this. I know I need tags (Errands: Grocery Store or Errands: name of store).
Could someone maybe share their screenshot(s) of how it looks or how-to?
I’m a little confused as to whether it’s a Project or Perspective. I need an OF3 mentor :-)
I personally have a “to buy” tag now and check that. This means that in my “super awesome fun stuff” folder I could have a project called “Movie marathon” which contains both the to buy tasks and the Watch tasks.
Thank you, that’s exactly what I needed to see. I usually do a weekly shop in one store, so I could rename the tags with the aisles, so where you have lettuce in the fruit and veg shop tag I could just put fruit and veg. That makes total sense, thank you :)
Hmm, thanks… one to look at. I have one called Out Of Milk right now but haven’t used it too much, I’m still into the habit of thinking of something, picking up a pen and going to the paper pad stuck to the fridge and writing it down there! :)
I think it is folders inside a group. Make a task called “Fruit” inside the project “Go Shopping”. then put “Apples”, “Oranges” etc as Tasks inside the “Fruit” task (like a hierarchical folder structure.
I’d create a tag for every store that has the items on your list.
Then I associate each tag with the nearest address of that store, so that when I arrive at the store the list for the store pops up as an alert
I am very new to customizing OF. I had several iOS grocery apps, but then I keep learning more about OF. Then I found the article regarding a grocery list and made my best attempt.
I now have a Shopping project and Shopping tag. Within the Shopping tag I have tags that represent aisles and stores like pantry, automotive, hardware, and pharmacy. Then within Pantry I have tags for the aisles of the grocery store. The last level is the items I have purchased previously [in other apps] under the grocery aisle tag, such as Produce.
So, my question. How do I make an item or many items active for my grocery list? I do not want to see everything under the Produce tag, but only the items I need to purchase.
Thank you for being patient with me. I look forward to your feedback.
@ckilly I have a single-action project called Grocery List and a perspective with the same name, with individual items grouped by Flagged, sorted by Name. Every item on the list starts with the aisle number. I use the Flag for things I want to buy on my next trip. On the iPhone, I can just swipe right on an item to set or clear the flag.
The flagged items are at the top of my list, sorted by aisle. I’ll try to add a screen capture.
