Assign Luggage

A new feature introduced in this new app is now allowing nested luggage. You can add luggage containing other luggage. You will have a master list of your luggage. Then each packing list will have its own set of luggage. To edit the master luggage list, see the “Edit Metadata” section.

To assign luggage to a list, click on the 3 dots menu icon and then click “Edit Luggage” from the popup menu. You can add a listed piece of luggage from the master list, rename a luggage, add a nested luggage, delete luggage, or swap luggage. You can move nested luggage from one parent to another or add one luggage to another by dragging/dropping the luggage from its original location to its new parent.
