Create Sections

Choose either 'Default' or 'Weeks' to create sections for your list.

  • If you select 'Default' you will start with one section, but you can add more if needed.
  • If you choose 'Weeks' it will start by showing you an 8 week outline, but you can change that number. You can relabel the sections, too. As an example, instead of saying 'Week 1...Week 2...' , you could create 'Required...Optional...Extra Credit' sections for your list.
