Are you tired of constantly reminding your spouse or co-worker about the grocery list you’ve been working on? With the latest iOS 13 update, the Reminders app has been revamped to include shared lists, allowing you to collaborate and delegate tasks more efficiently. In this guide, we’ll dive into everything you need to know about setting up and managing shared lists in iOS 13’s new Reminders app.
Setting Up Shared Lists
The first step in setting up shared lists is to ensure that you and the other person have iOS 13 or later installed on your devices. Once confirmed, follow these steps:
Open your Reminders app and click on the plus sign at the top right of the screen.
Name the list whatever you want and select “Add People” from the share options.
Search and select the person you want to share the list with, and click on “Add” once confirmed.
Choose how you want to send the invitation, either via Airdrop, Messages, or email.
Once the other person accepts your invitation, they will be added to the shared list.
Organizing Shared Lists
Now that you’ve set up the shared list, it’s time to dive into managing it. Here are some tips on how to organize shared lists:
To differentiate between shared and personal lists, use different colors to ensure that you don’t mix them up easily.
Within the shared list, assign tasks to specific people, using the “@username” feature to notify them about their assigned tasks.
Use the “Remind Me” feature to set deadlines for specific tasks, ensuring that they get done on time.
Add additional notes to specific tasks to ensure that everyone knows what needs to be done and why.
With shared lists in iOS 13’s Reminders app, collaborating and managing tasks has never been easier. By following these simple steps, you can set up and manage shared lists with ease, ensuring that everyone is on the same page, and tasks get done on time.
