How To: Use Intelligent Task Parsing - Lists

Modified on Thu, 17 Mar 2022 at 07:16 AM

Set the task list that a task belongs to by using the dash character (-) followed by the name of an existing list.

Updated (14 Jan 2013): We originally had this set to use the '^' symbol, but as some users pointed out to us, this is fairly inconvenient to access on the iPhone keyboard. We've now changed it to use the dash character instead which feels a lot more logical.



  • Call Bob -Work
  • -Work Call Bob
  • Replace the furnace filter - Home

Tip for using Siri:

  • You can say the word "dash" to get Siri to add a dash character. Siri will add a space between the dash and the list name. The Todo Pro service will still interpret this as a list name.
