Things in Apple Reminders look a bit more organized, so the crowded confusion it once was is no longer in iOS 13. The feeling of collision in older versions of iOS was the main reason why I've never used it so often, but the updated version for the iPhone finally got me excited.
Not only can you create grouped lists, which are folders that have multiple lists, but also nest reminders in a list among other reminders. Having main and sub-tasks contributes a lot to the organization and makes the structure clear at a glance.
For example, in a grocery store grocery store, you are looking for ingredients for various recipes or meals. Instead of creating separate lists for each dish or arbitrarily combining all ingredients, you can turn the dish into a higher-level court with subordinate tasks (ingredients). There are several ways to create reminders for parent and child tasks, depending on how you start.
Note that you can only create child tasks for lists in your iCloud account, not for third-party services such as Yahoo or Outlook. At least not yet.
: Drag and drop sub-tasks to a parent reminder
If the list already contains reminders that you want to convert to sub-tasks for another reminder, hold down one of the two. Drag it to the reminder Set it as a parent, and drop it there. The parent reminder is shown in bold and displayed as the main task. The subordinate task is indented below.
Repeat this process for all other tasks that you want to move under the parent task. It looks like you might be moving subtasks in large quantities in the future, much as you would move app icons in bulk on the splash screen, but it still does not work completely.
You can remove a subtask Drag it from the parent reminder to the desired location in the list or to another parent directory. In addition to leaving it blank, you can also clear it by swiping left and pressing delete, or swiping long left to do it automatically.
If you swipe left, you also have the option to "Mark", which inserts a small flag icon next to it and into the Automated Marked section of the main screen. Unflag "to remove the marker.
Option 2: Subtract sub-tasks into a parent reminder
Another way to create sub-tasks for a parent reminder is to indent reminders that you want to convert. First, drag any reminders that you want to define as subtasks. and drop them so that they are under the memory you have want to define as a parent. Swipe right to the reminders you want to send to subtasks and press "indent" or long right to automatically indent.
It does not matter what order you go in when you move in. For example, if you indent the first subtask under the parent task, the second, and so on, all subtasks are the parent task. When you first indent the last subtask, it becomes a subtask for the subtask above. The indenting of this parent wannabe makes it and its subtasks subtasks of the next reminder above, and you can do this until you reach the actual parent.
To remove a sub-task using the indentation method, swipe your finger to the right. Click on "Disengage" or swipe over it to disengage it automatically. When you offload a child task between other child tasks in the parent directory, that child task becomes its own parent task with all child tasks below it, rather than the original parent task.
To rearrange, mark, or delete subtasks, you can do exactly as described in Option 1.
Option 3: Add new subtasks from the details of a parent reminder
If the current list does not contain any subtasks, it's easier to create them directly in the parent reminder. Either create a "New reminder" as a parent, or just tap a reminder in the list that you want to set as a parent. Then tap the information icon (i) to open the modal view Details . At the bottom, tap Subtasks and then Add Reminder for each subtask you'd like to create.
To ensure that newly added subtasks are saved, press the "Return" or "Enter" key on the keyboard or press "Add Reminder" after you have typed one, which will take you to a new bubble for the next sub-task to be added.
If you add a subtask you did not want, edit it with something else, or swipe the left mouse button and press "Delete" or swipe left to remove it automatically If you do not need more subtasks, tap Details to return to the page If you can not select all sub-tasks on the Details page of the parent, you can turn on the "Selected" option to return the This will mark not all child tasks, but only the parent ones e Remove the mark. Click Done to complete the process.
