The RECALLS section of the app is where the list of all the recalls you've created reside. The list is presented as an infinite scroll which continues to download from the cloud as you continue to scroll. The counter in the search box increments as more recalls are downloaded.

Click to enter the RECALLS section of iDoRecall

You can open a recall by clicking on it. Once opened, you can edit it. Any changes that you make will not take effect until you click the SAVE RECALL button at the bottom.

You can search for any subset of your recalls and then sort and sort the search results. Searching and sorting are discussed in detail in another article. In general, you can search by one or more tags, and you can search by a text string that will match against text in the Q or A fields of a recall. You can search using one or more tags plus a single text string. All searches involving these combinations are AND type searches, meaning that only recalls which possess a match for all of the entries in the search box will be returned.

Demonstration of a search with two tags and a text string.

Above is an AND type search for recalls that match two tags and a text string. The counter indicates that there were zero matches.

You can sort your search results using the tools under the search box: A-Z, Due, Created, and Grade. These are discussed in detail here.

You can select a single recall from the list, any subset, or the entire search results. There is a full discussion of searching and sorting here.

Once any recalls are selected, the sorting tools are replaced by a set of bulk action tools: Practice, Manage tags, Share with groups. Snooze, and Delete,

These tools are discussed in detail elsewhere, but it is obvious that you can perform actions on the selected recalls, such as deleting them or taking them into practice.

The Tags Panel, seen on the left on the desktop browser version of iDoRecall, is very handy.

the tags panel

It lists all of the tags you've created. It can enable such actions as clicking a tag to immediately filter (search) the list of recalls for those that possess that tag, clicking the rocket icon on a tag to take the associated recalls into practice, and editing or deleting tags. You can even select one or more recalls from the recalls list, then drag and drop them onto a tag in the Tags Panel, and the tag will be applied to those recalls. No recall can be opened for editing at the time you do the drag and drop, or it will not work.The full details of the Tags Panel are discussed here.
