Changing Action Behavior
When Action Cards are making the transition from Schedule to Logbook, they are marked as “complete” and immediately move. Sometimes, that’s not ideal behavior – it can be great to see all the day’s work without having to switch between multiple screens.
Additionally, you can change the behavior of Action Cards that have been left incomplete for an extended period of time. Instead of cluttering up Schedule, you can set tasks to expire and be deleted.
To make either of these changes:
- Tap the Menu icon at the bottom of the screen
- Tap “Preferences”
- Tap “Actions”
Note: This preference can only be changed on iOS
There, you’ll see each setting under its respective header. For moving completed actions to Logbook, you can set this setting to “Immediately,” “After an hour,” “After a day,” and “Never.” Tasks can expire if not completed at intervals including “After a fortnight,” “After a month,” “After 3 months,” “After 6 months,” or “Never.”
If you’d prefer that remaining Actions roll over to the next day rather than sitting in review, visit the Actions Preferences (iOS-only) in the Menu and check “Show overdue actions in Today section.” By doing so, the Actions Cards you’ve created will automatically be added to the current day.
Under the “Overdue” header in the Actions Preferences, you can also change how you see Action Cards waiting review in Review Mode. With roll over turned on, Review Mode will only be activated after a task has been incomplete for seven days or more. The “show number of actions waiting review” setting affects what you see as the Review Mode icon – either the total number of overdue tasks or a basic icon. It should also be noted that with roll over turned off, you’ll see Review Mode for any lapsed Action Cards.
