Forwarding to external lists with My INDY Lists

Many INDY members have been utilizing the My INDY Lists for some time now, mostly for use as wishlists. However, some members were hesitant to use the Lists as they were already comfortable with an existing list tool such as an Amazon.com wishlist or a Remember the Milk To-Do list.

Well, now those members can have their cake and eat it too! By giving a My INDY List an external URL the list will automatically forward to the external list.

So, for example, I could create a list called "Indy's Amazon Wishlist" and enter the URL of my Amazon wishlist. When another INDY member visits my "Indy's Amazon Wishlist", they will automatically be forwarded to my Amazon wishlist on Amazon.com!

(I know one member in particular who is going to love this feature. In fact, I added this feature with him in mind for this specific use!)

While on the subject of external lists, I wanted to take a moment to recommend Remember The Milk to my readers. RTM is a very robust and well designed web-based list tool. I manage ALL my chores using RTM and LK and I share a list which allows us to conveniently access our shopping list anywhere and anytime.
