Exporting Custom Views from Desktop to Mobile

We are excited to announce that there is a functionality to export Custom Views from MyLifeOrganized for Desktop to iOS devices.

The new functionality allows you to use your MLO-Desktop Custom Views on MLO-iPhone and MLO-iPad after the import. You will be able to see your task lists filtered, grouped and sorted the same way you see them on your Desktop now.

The importing of any views from your desktop to iPhone is very easy. Let's do it together step by step.

1. In MLO-Desktop right click the views tree, select "New view..." and enter a name for the new view. Let's create a view of completed tasks which are also starred.

2. Open Advanced filter for the new view and add conditions for Complete and Starred.

3. Add other parameters to your new view like sorting and grouping.

4. Click Save View... to save all the changes before exporting.

5. Right click new view and select Export view(s)... from the menu. Enter a name for the file.

6. Now you need to transfer this file with new view to your MLO-iPhone. The easiest way is to send it via email which could be opened on your iPhone.

7. Click the attachment and select "Open in MLO 2" from the list (note MLO-iPhone v. 2.5.0+ should be installed on your iPhone)

8. MLO-iPhone will parse the import file to find all views you have in it.

Note: the views will be imported to the current MLO-iPhone profile only. To import the same view for other profile - open this profile in MLO-iPhone first.

9. After you complete the import the new View will be added to the Imported Views group on your iPhone. Now you can use this view to see the same task list as you do on desktop.

10. You can click Edit and rearrange imported views to other groups as well as rename, hide and delete unused views.

Currently we have the following limitations when importing views from desktop:

  1. Only one level of grouping can be used on MLO-iPhone. If you import a view with several levels of grouping w(hich desktop supports), only the first level will be used on iPhone and the rest is ignored.
  2. Manual ordering is only supported in predefined Starred and Active Starred views. MLO-iPhone cannot keep in sync the manual ordering for other custom views.
