Commons To-Do Lists provide you with many ways to view your tasks so that they can make sense

Grouping tasks into multiple lists

You can create multiple task lists on each to-do page. Each list is represented by a tab at the top of the region containing your tasks. You can create a new list by clicking on the 'tab add' button (plus sign). Tabs can be dragged and dropped to re-order. The drop-down menu at the top right can be used to navigate between task lists, or to view all tasks together in one long list.

List Operations and Sorting

The tab menu, activated by the down arrow on the active tab, provides you with operations on the list (rename, delete, etc.), as well as sorting options.

Filtering and Searching

A set of the most commonly-used filters can be accessed from the 'Tasks' menu (attached to the task list header at the left margin).

You can also filter tasks by keyword. Search the title, notes and subject tags by entering the keyword into the search box at the right margin (with search icon).

Subject Tags

The 'Tags' menu at the right can be used to display a list of all subject tags in use in this to-do list. Selecting one of these subject tags will limit the tasks displayed from the current list. Multiple subject tags may be selected. The selected subject tags will appear in the header row of the task list and can be removed from there.

Subject tags are freely created by entering text in the advanced edit form for the task, and are not the same as the group vocabulary tags.

Completing Tasks

A task can be marked complete by checking the box in the left margin next to the task title. Completed tasks are hidden from view by default. You may display completed tasks through selecting the appropriate list option from the active tab's drop-down menu.

Completed items appear with their checkboxes checked and with overstruck text.
