Use Notes as Checklist?
Here's an idea that's just crazy enough that it might actually work and serve a couple of purposes. I was a vocal critic on your Google+ page of the inability to collapse subtasks on the iPhone app. Then I realized that a lot of times, the manner in which I want to use subtasks is actually more like a checklist. Some are daily/weekly recurring tasks comprised of several items. Even in the web app this gets "wonky." Example: my son has autism. Every day I have a task item that reminds me called "Connor's Daily Therapy". The task / subtask structure looks like this:
6:30am Connor's Daily Therapy (every day at 6:30am)
- High potency probiotic
- Omega 3 Supplement
- Masgutova physical therapy: Moro reflex integration
Here's my dilemma: generally, I can remember what I've done and haven't done with him so I really just need a memory jogger list. Thus, I added each item as a separate Note attached to the task. There is, however, no way to "cross out" these notes without deleting them ... which, of course, means I would have to re-enter them each time. This kind of defeats the purpose, obviously.
An alternative would be to have High Potency probiotic, etc. as "Indent 1" subtasks beneath the primary task/reminder. Two limitations here: (1) If I don't make these checklist items recurring, then when I click the task as done on day one and it rolls over to day two, they display as completed tasks in the Web app (which is great because I can just un-check them and I'm good to go) BUT they disappear on the iPhone because the iPhone app doesn't support viewing of completed tasks, or (2) if I choose to make each "Indent 1" item as recurring, then they display not only as subtasks but are also duplicated individually in my Today / 7 day views.
SO ... all of this leads me to ponder ... for these types of situations ... is it possible to use the Notes as items that can be checked off, strikethrough as done, etc. ... AND have them replicate with the task upon completion / regeneration to the next recurring date??
Hope what I'm asking makes sense and isn't confusing. Thanks in advance for your help on this!
