Hey there Workflowy folks, we’re starting off 2023 with a feature that’s sure to please our mobile users. Regardless of which operating system you use, you can now save items to your Workflowy without having to open the app. This is great for quickly capturing snippets of text and links for later. Items you save will be put in an ‘Inbox’ bullet at the top of your Workflowy account.
How do I save items?
First, make sure you have the latest version of the mobile app, otherwise, the feature won’t be available.
- Select some text
- Tap the application’s ‘Share’ button
- Tap the Workflowy icon
- Edit the content to be saved if you wish
- Confirm to save
Here’s what that looks like on iOS and Android.
Note that some apps will use an icon to indicate the share functionality, below are some examples.
A. After selecting some text, tap the app’s ‘Share‘ option.
B. Select the Workflowy app.
C. Confirm the content to be saved.
D. Success! Your saved content is now in an ‘Inbox’ bullet at the top of your Workflowy.
Where can I use this feature?
This feature depends on your mobile operating system’s share functionality so it’ll work pretty much everywhere you can select text or where you can browse internet content.
Some examples of apps where you can try the feature:
- Web browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox)
- Note apps
- Media apps (YouTube, Spotify)
- Social media apps (Twitter, Reddit)
- Email apps
Let us know in the comments how you plan to use the feature!
See you in the next one! 🇺🇦
