action group behavior- confused in context mode and iPhone Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'm confused about how action group behavior and I'm wondering if there is any way to avoid the following:

Let's say I have a morning routine which looks like this in project mode

Morning Routine [project name]
- process iPhone [name of action group]
- clear voice mail [1st action item]
- clear text messages [2nd action item]

In context mode or on the iPhone, it looks like this:
- process iPhone [name of action group]
- clear voice mail [1st action item]
- clear text messages [2nd action item]

Is it possible to not have the name of the action group "process iPhone" appear in the context list? I can clearly see the advantage of having it because by clicking it you can complete all of the actions in that group.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
So it looks like one way to do it is:

1. Give the action group a context such as "review" and put that context on hold. set "mark complete when completing last item"

2. In context mode, set your availability filter to available.

So, this will definitely work.

My question has now become:

1. Is the method I outlined above the best way to hide the action group title?
2. Do you hide the action group title or do you include it in your contexts?
OK, the global way to stop action groups from appearing in contexts:

preferences- data preferences- uncheck "Show projects and action groups"

not sure my preference yet
