Selecting Your Power.ME View

To change Power.MEs default settings, tap the Settings button on the Power.ME Toolbar (the button with the gear icon). Power.ME has two available views: Classic and Executive. All the functions of Power.ME remain essentially the same, but they are called by different names in the different views. The Project List in Classic view is the File Cabinet in Executive view; Classic projects are Executive drawers; Classic priority is Executive highlight. The order of the Home Menu is slightly different between the two views as well.

  • If you want to switch from Classic view to Executive view, find the Select Power.ME View field and tap Executive.
  • Scroll the option you want into the shaded bar.
  • Tap Settings in the upper left corner of the screen.
  • Either continue adjusting your settings or tap Done (in the upper right corner of the screen).

Changing the Size of the Table Cells

You can change the size of the cells in the list views to one of three options: small, medium, and large.

  • Scroll to the Table Cell Size field.
  • Tap the size you want. The button of the selected size will be a darker color than the others.

Displaying Completed Tasks

The Completed Tasks setting determines whether or not completed tasks will display in your regular task lists.

  • Either continue adjusting your settings or tap Done (in the upper right corner of the screen).

Download Documents during Sync

Documents do not automatically download during the syncing process so the sync isn’t slowed down by the large files. Instead, Power.ME sets up the icons for the documents in the list views and only downloads the documents when you view them. You can choose to have Power.ME instead download documents during its sync by adjusting the default setting. NOTE: This settings option only applies to subscribed Power.ME Sync & Share customers.

  • Scroll to the Download Documents during Sync field.
  • Tap the button next to the field title to toggle the option from No to Yes. Your device will automatically exit the Settings window and download any documents it is missing that are on the server.
  • To restore the default setting, open the Settings window and toggle the Download Documents during Sync option to No.

Displaying the Urgent Priority Badge

The Urgent Priority Badge setting determines whether or not an icon displaying the current number of urgent-priority items appears in the Priority cell of the Home Menu.

  • To ensure the badge is not displayed, tap the button next to the field title until it says Hide; to ensure it is displayed, tap until it says Show.
  • Either continue adjusting your settings or tap Done (in the upper right corner of the screen).

App Icon Badge

The App Icon Badge setting determines whether or not a badge displaying the current number of overdue and urgent items appears on the Power.ME icon when you are on your device’s home screen.

  • To ensure the badge is not displayed, tap the button next to the field title until it says Hide; to ensure it is displayed, tap until it says Show.
  • Either continue adjusting your settings or tap Done (in the upper right corner of the screen).

Showing Tasks as In Progress

The Show Tasks as In Progress option determines what happens when you tap the checkbox icon next to a task. If the option is on, the task’s status goes from None to Complete and a blue checkmark appears in the task’s checkbox. If the option is off, tapping the icon once will mark the task as In Progress and a small blue circle appears in the task’s checkbox. A second tap marks the task as Complete.

  • To show tasks as In Progress, tap the button next to the field title until it says On; to only show them as unfinished and Complete, tap the button until it says Off.
  • Either continue adjusting your settings or tap Done (in the upper right corner of the screen).
