wrishel 3 Posted December 29, 2010 Share Posted December 29, 2010 As near as I can tell this feature doesn't exist, and it blocks me from using Evernote for an important (and I believe common) business function (re-usable check lists).For example every time I pack for a business trip I run through a check list of 60 items. I have been using SplashShopping which works ok, but I wish they would spend less time in glitz on more on fundamentals like getting Sync to work without losing data.Ideally, Evernote would provide a command and accelerator that would go through a note and clear the check boxes on all items.Secondary features that would be helpful- organize checklists in outline form. Checking a higher level entry checks all the items below.- lines including checklist items disappear when the item is checked, so the list of things left to do keeps getting shorter.I have tried Egretlist but couldn't find the feature there. They advertise their product as having reusable check lists but I don't know how they can justify calling them reusable if you have to go through and clear every item one at a time.The Egretlist UI is really flashy but for doing business work I prefer the prosaic and regular UI of Evernote. Glitz takes up real estate on an iPhone and distracts designers from thinking through use cases and how the product will meet one's needs. Of course that is a sweeping generality that isn't always true. Look at the iPhone and IPad themselves. Elegant and carefully thought through. But it certainly does seem to be true for a lot of apps in the app store. Link to comment
