If you decide to export, it can be formatted or in plain text; allowing for it to be copied and pasted into another document. When you click on the bullet point next to a category to add items, it zooms you in to those specifics.
Click on the + sign to add to the list. To continue adding points simply press the return key. All items have the same options in the drop down menu as the larger categories and item order can be altered by simple dragging them to a new position. (Use the cross-like icon which appears.)
Here are separate views showing the zooming in feature.
If you wish to learn further details about other features on Workflowy click on the Help button in the upper right-hand corner. There are a series of very informative short video clips which explain:
- Getting Started
- Tag & Filter

Two features of particular interest are the ability to: add tags grouping items from other lists together using the # symbol or the @ symbol to assign an item to a specific collaborator and search for items.
This is another of those applications that falls under the heading of so simple and easy to use, it's amazing. I can see using this to plan month by month, week by week and day by day in the classroom. It can be used with students who are working on projects together for storyboarding a presentation, assigning tasks, or taking notes. If you are working on a blog post, it can be used to organize your thoughts, list websites, videos and curriculum extras. Workflowy is just what a list maker like myself needs. Being able to zoom into a specific portion of your list without the distraction of all the other items is a huge bonus. In your browser all you need to do is to open up the tab and forget about the paper pads and sticky notes.
