Functionality on the non-mobile webapp that enables a user to add an item to whatever list from whatever place.
When summoning this function, the user is able to:
- specify the specific list as the receiver of an item
- enter the item itself
- publish the item towards the receiving list
- this function can be called through the UI and through a keyboard shortcut
Use current “item add” behaviour in order to place the item at the top / bottom of the list.
“Global item add” doesn’t have to be (extra) complex in that sense that a whole hierarchy of items should be parsable. Just a simple oneliner as an item (item in root of list) should suffice.
There can be a need (quite often actually), while working from “List A”, to quickly add an item to “List B” while not having to leave your current context (“List A”).
When working from my “Work” list, I want to capture something non-Work related into my “Capture” list, without having to first navigate to the “Capture” list and thus leaving my current “Work” context, and later having to navigate back to the “Work” list.
Checkvist mobile: On the lists overview there is a “Quick add” option, but then be able to use this function in the non-mobile webapp from whatever view.
