Action Cards

Assigning Action Cards to Lists

Action Cards, because they act as general tasks, can be used independently of Lists to create a system of simple to-dos. In some instances, this may even be preferred — if an Action is too unique to add to a specific List, for example, keeping it free from a List can save potential confusion.

But for most of your work, combining Action Cards with Lists is the most effective way to categorize your tasks and visualize what you have left to accomplish. As with most of Actions, there’s more than one way to assign an Action Card to a List:

  • When creating an Action Card, type in the title and tap “Choose List” beneath the Card. Then, tap the appropriate List.

  • After creating an Action Card, tap into the Card and tap “Add to list.” In cases when you’re looking to change the Card’s List, tap the Card and tap that List’s name below the Card’s title. You’ll then select the List.

  • After creating an Action Card, tap and hold on the Card until a shadow appears below the Card. With another finger, tap the Lists icon at the bottom of the screen and drag the card to the relevant List (iOS-only).

    On Actions for iPad, simply drag the Action Card to the List already seen on-screen.

  • In the Lists view, tap the blank card (iOS) or the add button (Android) at the bottom of a particular List to add an Action Card. This Card will be automatically assigned to the List, but will not be immediately added to a schedule.

The flexibility of Action Cards allows for a variety of uses in connection with Lists. A List can become a comprehensive shopping list or an overarching view of the work you have to do for a particular project. Whatever you use Lists for, Action Cards complement them perfectly!
