Would it be quick & easy to divide the "manage your list" into have list and want list like the "look at your list" is?

I have >1,000 wants but just a few haves. It would be easier to keep my haves current if I didn't have to weed through all my wants. And I don't WANT to reduce my WANTS!! Hilarious!

I think I can do that.

I've been planning to do some updates to the lists feature and that's getting pretty close to the top of my TODO. I'll see what I can do!

BTW _ it's all your fault how huge my want list is. You and your "random plant" picture! Rolling on the floor laughing

That would be a great feature. I've only used My List for my own plant inventory so I wouldn't muck it up with a bunch of wish-plants. Still trying to get the inventory complete, but if I could segregate out the 'want' plants that would be lovely.

For now, I created my own Wish list so when I add something I am looking for, I only place it in that list so it includes all kinds if plants. For my separate trade list I have them in two lists, the type of plant and the Trade list.

I'm not lazy, but I have less energy than I used to.
Sue, your post made my head hurt!
Hilarious!

I maintain a Wish List in One Note on my computer which is always evolving - as I buy something I delete it, and keep adding to it. I'm hoping it may be a bit easier using the My List function and I can then use the comments section to note where I am thinking of placing it (often that part of the equation totally eludes me when I finally find a plant I've been searching for...). I assume (haven't tried) the lists can be printed out, correct? If so, can/will we be able to only print "Wants" or "Haves"? That would be great - I could print a shopping list prior to a nursery run. And perhaps print a master inventory list at season end if I feel the need for a hard copy.

I keep a wish list in Excel and email it to myself every time I update it. I get my email on my phone so I always have it when I go to a nursery. I am currently working on adding a HAVE list to this file so I stop rebuying stuff I already have!

LOL sorry critter, guess I didn't explain it well enough! If you click on my profile, you'll see that I decided to make category lists, like Iris, Roses, shrubs and Trees, etc. and I also have a Trade list and a Wish list.
If you click on my trade list http://garden.org/lists/view/Calif_Sue/?catid=762
In the status column, it shows that I have it as a plant (or seeds etc., ) and also which category/ list this plant is placed it. The first one is in my TRADE list as well as in my Perennials list.

I use my ATP lists the same way Jennifer, so handy to be able to look up things on the phone right there in the nursery! Thumbs up
