How to Cre­ate and or­gan­ise tasks in Planny 2

Mac Format - - APPLE SKILLS -

1 Cre­ate lists and items

Tap the + icon to cre­ate a list, then tap on the list to select it and use the + at the lower right of the screen to add a new item. Tap­ping items en­ables you to as­sign them to dates or times.

4 Add ex­tra info

Tap on a list item and you’ll see this pop-up menu, which en­ables you to add it to to­day’s tasks, set a date or time, change the list it’s in, add notes or tags, and cre­ate lo­ca­tion-spe­cific re­minders.

7 Change the op­tions

You can do lots in Planny’s set­tings: im­port Cal­en­dars, sync over iCloud with other de­vices, add game-style tro­phies for us­ing the app, and pro­tect your per­sonal data with Touch ID or Face ID.

2 Ev­ery­thing at a glance

As you can see here, Planny lists what you need to be re­minded about on your iPad or iPhone screen. You can press and hold to open items, and then tap to mark items as com­pleted.

5 Set a lo­ca­tion

Lo­ca­tion re­minders (Pro only) work like Ap­ple’s Re­minders app: choose the lo­ca­tion and spec­ify whether you want a re­minder when you ar­rive or when you leave – it’s very use­ful for shop­ping.

8 Share your rou­tines

Rou­tines are for re­cur­ring things, such as ex­er­cis­ing or prac­tis­ing, or just ev­ery­day chores. Adding them in More > Rou­tines means they’ll show up as sug­ges­tions on the ap­pro­pri­ate days.

3 Colour and plan lists

When you’re in a list, tap the ‘…’ icon to cus­tomise it. You can as­sign the en­tire list to a par­tic­u­lar date, which is handy for projects or event plan­ning, and you can change its colour.

6 Add Siri Short­cuts

Planny 2 sup­ports iOS 12’s help­ful Siri Short­cuts so, for ex­am­ple, you can have a short­cut that gets Siri to dis­play a spe­cific list from your Planny data. All you need to do is say a voice com­mand.

9 Tame it with tags

For big­ger lists, such as projects or your se­cret world dom­i­na­tion plans, you can use tags to add mul­ti­ple iden­ti­fiers to items. That makes them much eas­ier to find when you’re in a bit of a hurry.
