VBS Tasks now allows for multiple lists. Each List will have associated tasks with the specific record.

The List screen will present the List in alphabetical order. Swipe left to delete the current List and all associated tasks, or edit the name of the current List. You will be presented with a warning that if you modify the current record, it will create a new record, and all of the tasks associated with the old name will be deleted. You have the option to cancel the edit.

Tapping on the switch will make the task as “important” and will add the new task to t the top of the list.
The tasks in the list are ordered alphabetically, important tagged tasks first followed by all other tasks.

The right button will export to a Comma Delimited File (CSV) which can be opened with any word processor, text editor, or better, a spreadsheet program like Numbers.

Export Lists: will export all of your List to a CSV file.
