Send-by-email list needs to include Notes
July 20, 2016 at 10:24 am #310
I’ve been using this app for several years now and really love it. It’s only been recently I’ve needed to send someone my well-curated list to get my groceries for me. When I sent the list in email to that person, the export did not include my Notes, which includes things like brands, sizes, alternates, places to look for items she’d have a hard time finding. So I had to retype all those Notes into the email.
As an experiment, I copied the info of one item to the Brands field, and the info didn’t export from there, either.
Is there a way to include Notes when exporting to email that I’m just not finding?
Thanks so much!July 20, 2016 at 10:23 pm #311DLawParticipant
I played with it and couldn’t find any way to send it. You might try taking a screen shot of it, then send the picture. Didn’t try it, but you might figure out a way to do it…. DanJuly 21, 2016 at 8:47 am #312
Thank you for trying, DLaw. Screen shots are a good woworkaround for now, thanks for suggesting that. Thankfully having to have someone else do the shopping is temporary.
I’m interested to see if this changes in the future, as I would expect someone else has run into this same conundrum by now.July 23, 2016 at 10:48 pm #313DLawParticipant
I haven’t heard from the author for a good while. I know he as been very sick for a long time, and I told him I would try to keep up with the forum. I seriously doubt that there will be any enhancements to the program.
With the heavy cellphone application development over the last few years, there are a lot of apps to choose from. Personally, I have no desire to switch having been just the app for what seems like a couple dozen years, have well over a thousand records, for dozens of stores. Depending where I am in town at the time, I will shop in the closest store to where I am. For example, there are 3 HEBs that I use, and guess what, the aisles are all different, with products on different aisles. ToMarket can easily handle that kind of data. That’s just one reason I stick with it.August 1, 2016 at 10:44 am #314
DLaw, I’m sorry to hear the developer is feeling so poorly, and has been for awhile. I understand too well how chronic illness changes one’s life.
We sound similar in our heavy use of this app. I used to use HandyShopper on my Palm Pilot, and as soon as I got my first Android phone (we were early adopters of the G1) I ported that data to ToMarket and have loved and recommended it ever since. Like you, I have 3 Krogers amongst my stores with their own aisles, depending on where I am when I stop for groceries. And I keep other lists for other types of stores. It’s really great.
I’ll not expect any updates, then, but will keep using this app until it simply stops working. I don’t want to switch, either, as this one is nearly perfect for me.
