Categories help you get complex projects under control by breaking them down into smaller parts.
Sometimes a project can get quite complicated, with dozens of to-dos in one long list. With Categories, you can break that list up into smaller parts like sections or milestones.
In this article:
Create a new category
- Open the List Menu in the list you want to add categories to.
- Select Categories from the list menu.
- Give the new category a name and color then press Add.
- On your iPad or iPhone, open OhYeah.
- Tap one of your Projects.
- At the top of your screen, tap → New Heading.
💡Tip: Insert a new category anywhere by dragging the along the left edge of the screen (iPhone) or between the sidebar and to-do list (iPad). A keyboard shortcut is available for iPad users with hardware keyboards.
Headings are only available in projects. This feature is not available in areas or any other list.
Group selected to-dos under a new category
- Select the to-do you want to add the new category to. This will open the Task Details panel.
- In the task details panel select the new category from the Category section..
The to-dos you’ve selected will move under the new category.
You need a hardware keyboard to use this feature with your iPad.
- On your iPad, open OhYeah.
- In the sidebar, tap one of your Projects.
- Select a group of to-dos that aren’t under a category yet.
- Hit ⌘ Cmd ⌥ Opt ⇧ Shift N.
Don’t have a hardware keyboard? No problem. Just create a category first and then move selected to-dos under the category.
This feature is only available on Mac and iPad. But you can just create a new category and then move selected to-dos under it.
Move a category
When you move a category, any to-dos under it will be moved as well. There are several ways to move a category:
- Drag it to another place in the list.
- Drag it in the Categories panel.
- Tap and hold the category and drag it to another place in the list.
- Next to the category, tap → Move to move it to another project.
On an iPad, you can also open two OhYeah windows side-by-side and drag a category from one project to another.
