You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Not sure what to do next?  This exercise could help!  First create a new flow called To do list, and within this add the following actions:

Action Notes
Create new list Create a new list in a variable called ToDoItems.
Add item to list Repeat this action 4 times to add 4 items to your list (you need to feed the cats, make tea, do your ironing and perhaps catch up on the latest Netflix box set?).
Shuffle list By putting the list in random order you will let the gods of chance dictate what you do next.

Now use a For each action to loop over the items in your list, writing each out to a text file:

To do list

The output you might get from one run of your flow (each iteration should give a different order).


When this is working, save and close your flow, then start ... doing your ironing?
