Exporting a Completed Task Does Not Import Correctly
Here is an example of an export of a bullet that was completed:
This is what it's like when it's exported:
<outline text="Parent Bullet">
<outline _complete="true" text="This Element is Cross Out" />
Notice that _complete="true"
But when I paste the OPML back into Workflowy:
The completed element is no longer shown as completed : /
I don't think the bug that Jonathan reported above has been fixed. Do you know if this bug is going to be looked at?
The potential to lose all _complete="true" attributes on import is sufficiently concerning that I have resorted to using tags to mark items as completed, rather than using the built-in is:complete function.
Nevertheless, I think Workflowy is a really wonderful tool.
Thanks for getting back to me. I meant what I said about Workflowy being wonderful -- it is triumph of minimalist design. Indeed, I think one of the ongoing challenges for the business is giving experienced users the functionality that they want without compromising the starting simplicity for new users.
I'm sure I have seen mention somewhere of a Slack channel for Workflowy. Is it possible to get an invitation to join that channel?
I thought you were the Stuart from the Slack channel... so I did not think of inviting... the more Stuarts the merrier 🎉
Hi FrankSorry to be a pain, but I can't join the Slack channel using the link you sent, as I don't meet the domain name criteria below.You can use any account with the domain:
Don’t have an email address from one of those domains?
Contact the workspace administrator at WorkFlowy User Group for an invitation.
Apparently I need to get a separate invitation...
Okie dokie... could you send me a message to email@example.com (so that I have your email address) and I will then invite you via email from the Slack platform)?
Just to confirm that original bug reported in this thread has been fixed. I just tested a large OPML import of completed items and everything worked just fine.
Big thanks to the team for fixing this particular problem -- it makes a real and positive difference to my use of Workflowy.
