Checklist

The Checklist is part of the Ionic Layout Component Set. Create anything from a task list to a shopping list in any app. The Component is designed to be added numerous times to a single app page, creating a checklist of multiple items.

Ideas for Using Checklist

  • Ensure app users know what to do to prepare for an upcoming conference. Add multiple checklist components to a Page, with each one detailing a step for the conference.
  • Use the Checklist Component to display important items to bring to an upcoming event. Studio users can choose to link each item to another Page in the app, or to an external link or document. 
Pro Tip: Combine with Checklist Logic to have items that are checked off slide to the bottom of the list and provide an interactive experience.

If you prefer a simple list without the ability to mark completed items, check out List.
