[Solved] Mobile multiple checklists

The mobile app allows more than one checklist to be open at the same time. I have never understood why one would want to do that, but a reason occurred to me today, and I tried it. I thought I could track my whole walk with tab A and then a subset of the walk with tab B. But it didn't work as planned.

I can't find a way to send an email about each individual checklist (tab). The outing does include each tab, but it always seems to email the last tab, not the first.

Because of this, I ran into trouble in the field when I tried to Close Only one of the tabs, but found it closed both of them. I had to start a completely new outing to continue the walk.

Also, why does the main screen have a button for Completed Outings, but inside that, the outings are called Completed Checklists?

Hi David,

Uggg. Fixed in v2.0. Thx.

One for birds, one for butterflies, one for plants... etc. That is the intent of multiple checklists. Those are the three I generally use on every outing. 

Do I assume from your statement above, that you are using the same Checklist for each Tab? It should not allow you to select the same checklist for a new Tab here. So, just what did you pick for Tab B?

The email contains everything. I created a dummy outing just now with a bird checklist and a butterfly checklist. Then I finished and submitted the Outing. Here is the email...

I am not sure how you managed this. I am unable to reproduce this. For example, in the Birds and Butterflies outing above, with the Butterflies TAB selected and visible, I clicked on the dropdown menu and chose "Remove Current Checklist/Tab". Afterwards, only the Bird checklist/tab remained.

Let me know.

I was wrong. The email does contain everything. The attachment also contains everything. That's a little problematic, since I wanted the separate tabs to be for separate locations. Oh well.

But since the two tabs are in the same outing, of course when I did Finish Outing, both of them got finished. I had to open a new outing to continue my walk. I was hoping to close just one tab (as if it was an outing all its own). I was not Removing a tab.

OK, so that's the way it works.
