New in MLO for iOS: Custom counters

Friends, we have prepared another big improvement! With the new MLO 3 feature pack you can see a number of different tasks for views on your iOS devices!


Let us remind, we announce new features of MLO for iOS. The new version will be available soon. Now it is being tested by beta testers.
Before that, we reviewed the new feature of using flags.


Now we consider the function of counters and their configuration in the view of tasks. This innovation allows you to glance quickly over the list of views and understand how many different tasks require your attention. You don’t even need to open each view.


For example, you can see how many tasks in your Inbox waiting for your processing, even not revealing this view. Or you can see that there is an overdue task appeared in the Active Actions view even without opening it.


As you know, MyLifeOrganized app offers maximum flexibility. Therefore, the most important new feature is the ability to decide what type and what kind of tasks are important to you in the current view: All, completed, not completed, started or overdue.
We took care that you can customize the counter system as it’s convenient for you.


First you go to the settings of view counters.

Go to the counters of the "All Tasks" view and select desired setting. For example, for this view we want to see two counters: the number of not completed tasks and the number of all tasks.

We can see that we have 31 of not completed tasks and 43 of all tasks in this view at the moment.

Important to note that counters consider tasks exactly in the given view. For example, we can count the number of overdue tasks among the tasks marked with red flag. To do this, we create a view showing only red flag tasks. Next we set for this view a counter of overdue tasks.
Thus, we give instructions for counter from which tasks it can make a count.

Another interesting detail. If you set the option "Hide If Zero", the counter will not appear until at least one task with the given criterion appears. Thus, this option can be viewed as an additional soft notification, along with reminders for time, place and review already available in MLO.


As you know, one of the main MyLifeOrganized advantages - is unlimited hierarchy. As well it is used in the counters. When they are set, you can specify whether to consider only top level tasks or tasks with subtasks.

Stay with us
As you can see, the work of MLO has become even more efficient and comfortable, despite the large number of your various tasks.


Next we will announce in detail the new feature for MLO iOS 3 pack - parse in your inbox, which can select by the entered text a date, context, time and other task settings.


Thank you. Ask questions and write requests!


Best wishes,
The MyLifeOrganized team

Life is easy when organized
