Individual check list

I have looked in the forum but not getting the specific answer I need.

What I am trying to do:

  1. each user gets this item on their own check list so when I check an item Joe doesn’t see my check on his list.
  2. user can add an item, so these items are not hard coded in advance
  3. settings are set to public with email

My understanding is if I want the same check list for EACH individual, somewhere each new item would need to be linked to each individual, e.g. “potato chips” would need to be listed 9 times in the database so each individual user can check it off.

a) if this is the case, how do I do that when a user adds an item from within the “user can add” option in the app?
b) is there a better way? I would think there is a better way than to list it 9 times. Going pro on a short turn app is not an option and that being listed multiple times really eats into the 500 ceiling.

All assistance is appreciated.

Is this what you’re looking for?
