Getting Started with To Do Lists

Let Cozi remember your to dos, so you don’t have to. Your family can add and manage to do list items from any computer or mobile device.

Adding and sorting list items

Add To Do Item
  • To add an item, select a list, type an item, and then press Enter.
  • To create categories within a list, type the category header using all capital letters. For example, if you would like to organize your to do list by short-term and long-term tasks, you could add categories like TODAY or THIS WEEK.
  • To move items within a list, drag the item you want to move, and drop it where you want it to be displayed. On the web, drag with cursor; in the apps, press the three horizontal lines to the right of the item.

Checking items off a list

  • To check items off a list, click the box to the left of the item. You’ll see a check mark appear next to the item, as well as a line running through the item.
  • To remove items from a list on the web, check off the items and use the Remove menu at the top of the page.
  • To remove list items in the apps, check off the items and use the action buttons at the bottom of the screen.

NOTE: If you use the Check All Items option, then Delete All, any included headers will also be deleted.
