Here are the answers to some of the questions that are frequently asked.

Attaching photos or files to to-dos

It’s not possible to add photos or any type of file to a to-do at this time.

Restoring deleted to-dos

On the Mac, deleted to-dos and projects go to the Trash. You can recover them from there, or undo your last action by pressing ⌘ Cmd Z.

Since there’s no trash on iOS, all deletions are permanent which is why we’ve made deletions a multi-step-process. You can, however, recover the last deleted item: shake your device immediately after a deletion to recover it. On an iPad with an external keyboard, hit ⌘ Cmd Z.

Things and Alexa

Things and Alexa do not integrate directly due to technical limitations, but if you can build a workflow that generates emails, you would be able to use Mail to Things to send Alexa’s output to your Things’ Inbox.

Alphabetical sorting of to-dos or lists

At this time, it’s not possible to sort content alphabetically in Things. You can always manually re-arrange to-dos or your own lists in to any order you prefer by dragging and dropping, though.

Things is missing from the iOS Share Sheet

Please reboot your iPhone or iPad to make Things appear again in the Share options.

Projects ”disappear” from the sidebar/main lists view

If you gave your projects a start date, you’ve made them inactive until that date – on which they’ll appear both in your sidebar/main lists view and the Today list. Projects added to the Someday list are also inactive. The sidebar/main lists view only shows you active projects so you don’t get distracted by to-dos you can’t do yet.
