Help: Friends and Sharing

Introduction

One of the HUGE benefits of LifeChanger is the ability to share information with other people.  Sharing is performed at the List level.  For example, you could share your Project list with members of your team at work, and your To Do list, Day Plan, Shopping list, etc. with your spouse. 

When you setup the share (or at any time later) you can choose whether to share all items on the list or just those with or without particular tags.

You share Lists with your Friends.  You must setup a Friend relationship first (as described below) to ensure both parties want to share Lists with each other.  

Where do I start?

Tap/click the    button at the bottom right of LifeChanger to show the menu.  Tap/click  the Friends button.  Your existing Friends (if any) will be listed.

Take me to the Friends page in the web version of LifeChanger now.

Create a new Friend

Creating a new Friend is a two step process.

  1.  user 1 makes a Friend request to user 2.
  2. user 2 accepts (or rejects) the request.

Tap/click the New Friend button  at the bottom right of the Friends page.   Enter the LifeChanger username of your potential Friend and click the green tick button.  LifeChanger searches for that user and, if found, notifies them of the Friend request.  At this stage the Friend’s name appears as Pending in your Friends list.

Accepting/Rejecting Friend Requests

When the person being friended views their Friends page, they will see the Friend request marked as Pending.   They can either tap/click the green tick button to accept the request (in which case lists can be shared between the 2 users) or tap/click the trash can to reject the request (in which case no sharing will be allowed).

Sharing

To share a List with one or more of your Friends, first tap/click the round button with 3 horizonal dots at the bottom of the list and then Edit to show the List properties page. Then tap/click on the sharing card ().   When you first view it, the page will be empty except for the Add share button.   Tap/click that to create your first share.   Tap on the button with 2 arrows (  ) on the right hand side of the With these users selector and choose one or more Friends with whom you want to share the List.   In the next selector, choose one of the 4 values below:

  • Share all items: all items on the list will be shared with your Friend(s).
  • Share items with ANY of these tags: only items that have at least one of the tags you specify will be shared with your Friend(s).
  • Share items with ALL of these tags: only items that have all of the tags you specify will be shared with your Friend(s).  e.g. only those items that have both the Personal AND Soccer tags.
  • Share items EXCEPT those with ANY  of these tagsonly items that do NOT have any of the tags you specify will be shared with your Friend(s).  e.g. all items EXCEPT work-related items.

Once you have set the sharing options, you can either tap/click the green tick to save your changes or tap/click Add share again to setup different sharing options with other Friend(s).  e.g. you might share personal items with family members and work-related items with work colleagues.

User access

Sometimes you might want to let your Friend(s) see your List but not change what’s there.   To define what your Friends can do, tap/click the User access tab (  ).

In the screenshot, the ToDo list is shared and Deb has permissions to Update and Pin items, while Tudor has no Write permissions – i.e. he has read-only access.
