I have long used the prayer lists in L3. In fact this and the topic browser are the only features I still use regularly in L3.

In L3 I had unscheduled requests. Everyday I would open up my list and pray for as many items at the top as time and form allowed. Then I would checkmark them and they would go down the bottom of the list. I would do this until through the complete list, then uncheck everything and start over.

I have not found a way to do the same thing in L4. The unscheduled requests don't have a checkbox I can check off. They don't show on the ribbon either. Am I missing something or is something missing?

The trick I am using at present is to schedule them all as monthly. Then there is a checkbox. When I check it off, it goes down to the following month (in effect, at the bottom of the list). Then I can start all over (ignoring the actual dates). But my question still stands and perhaps there is a better way to do this.

The drawbacks of my trick above are the following:

1) I can see and check off prayer requests when I actually open the prayer list. I can then ignore the date. But the home page ribbon won't show them except on the right date.

2) Aside from the ribbon, I have to create a layout in order to see more than one prayer list at a time and not have to open them up one by one to do so (in effect again what the ribbon does).

It works but is perhaps not as pretty.

Francis,

Is there a reason you cant just set them as daily?  If you don't get to them they don't backlog (I think).

Yes, there is a reason. Let's say I have 15 prayer requests and I pray 3-4 a day. Today I check off 1 to 4. If they are set to daily, tomorrow they will be back in the list along with the items I have not yet prayed for. At least, that's what I assume.

Oh, well that makes sense.  I should have seen that, but I wasn't contemplating how they would return.  HOWEVER, if they return to the bottom of the list....

Short of doing the monthly as you've been then I do not see how you could to an unscheduled prayer list as you did in L3.

I'll have to run some tests to see how they behave.

Unfortunately, they return in alphabetical order.

4 years later and two versions further, the problem is still here without solution...
