Adding a Filter

  • To add a filter, tap the Add button in the Power.ME Toolbar.
  • Tap Filter on the menu that appears (it has the icon with the blue cross in it).
  • Type in a Filter Name.
  • Tap Done (in the upper right corner of the screen).
If you tap on the cell of a filter (instead of the icon), you will see all the tasks that the filter is attached to. Within this filter view you can add a new task by tapping the empty space where it says, “Tap here to add a new task.” Type in the task name and tap Return on your keyboard. This task will automatically have your filter attached to it. Some ideas for filter names are “Boss,” for tasks you need to do with your boss and “Computer,” for those tasks you need your desktop or laptop to complete.

Removing Attached Filters
