🔁 How to set up a recurring daily checklist

I made something similar in Succipe app.

Instead of daily, I made monthly recurring records that we show for us monthly, and also added an option to “keep” each month. Neat!

Thank you for the tutorial

Thank you for this follow up. I am still wondering if iit’s ossible to assign different amounts of points to different tasks.
Or would this be done by following the steps in your other gamifying video?

Thank you!

Couple of ways to go about this, but in your task list, you would have a points column. Assign whatever point values you want per task. When a user completes the task, the assigned points would be added to a log that then gets rolled up via a relation to the users email or increments a users point balance column directly.

Great. Thank you

one more question about this, please. I am struggling to figure out how to enable the user to simply click a checkmark right on that inline list of tasks, instead of clicking into the task, and clicking an extra button.

in other words, I have a list of tasks that I want to be recurring daily, and I want to mark them off just with a checkmark on that same page.

thank you!

Have you tried the checklist style layout for the list?

yes I have but how do I set it up to be recurring? because when I followed the above video, and created a details page and a “complete task” button, that did not automatically check the checkbox… thank you for helping me

Glide check list will not update automatically… is manual click, you have to create a custom check list… here is a SAMPLE

nice. and im guessing there isn’t a tutorial as to how to make that?

@Robert_Petitto did tutorial for it, scroll up… my sample is just simple version of it… is all based on timestamp priority selection.

Hmmm, I think I will have to have much more experience with this whole platform before I can do that. The only thing I was able to come up with is to have an empty box and the add a checked box… better than nothing though. Thanks again

I guess one better question for you could be: how did you please enter that green checkmark? from where?

thank you!

Magic is what i do!

It looks like an inline list and the checkmark is a GIF.

Here’s some copyable examples of lists using images or emojis for your checked and unchecked status. It’s not exactly what you are looking for, but might help you get some ideas.

A checklist style layout is probably not the best if you want them to reoccur.
I also don’t quite understand why you aren’t getting the checkbox to show as checked or not. You should be able to tap directly on the checkbox to check it and it will fill the column you have set for your checked value as true or false. If you are going into the details of the list item and clicking a button, then it should be writing true or false to that same column. I don’t know if you are maybe setting some other value other than true or false.

Instead, to get the reoccurring part to work, I would use a regular inline list with an image or emoji and have it set up so either tapping on the list item, or going into the details and clicking a button will write a timestamp of the current date/time to one of the columns. Then create an IF column that will check if that timestamp is WITHIN TODAY. If it is, then return the image url or emoji for a checked status. Else return an image url or emoji for an unchecked status. That way after midnight, the image will change and reset to unchecked and once you reset the timestamp, it will show as checked until the next day.

My example above uses Unique ID’s instead of timestamps, but the general idea is the same. You can simplify what I did quite a bit and ignore the whole Reset Multiple part.

Thank you so much!

Hi Jeff. Thank you so much for such a thorough advice. I actually did what you are advising me in the end - inline lost, tabs, when completed within today, then display checkmark, and my empty box is just an icon that i added in front of my task text :slight_smile: it didn’t occur to me to put that into the “when not completed within today”, thats a perfect solution (im completely new to glide, apps, even spreadsheets). so thank you so so much

I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to @Jeff_Hager and @ThinhDinh because you guys helped me a lot and now I’m so proud that I have a nice empty box, when clicked it’s a nice moving green checkmark, AAAAND when clicked AGAIN, it gets unclicked and becomes an empty box/square again!

I’m very proud lol. thank you
also, of course @Robert_Petitto :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :muscle:
