You can now create multiple, separate checklists within your MeisterTask tasks! Multiple checklists provide structure for your work packages so you can manage even large and complex tasks with ease. Read on to find out how it works…
Big tasks can seem scary and overwhelming sometimes. If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably caught yourself opening a task with the intent of diving in, just to abandon it seconds later in favor of a smaller task that seemed simpler and more straight-forward.
Unfortunately, those big, scary tasks are often the most important ones, and while completing a bunch of small tasks in quick succession may feel great, this busy-work can keep you from focusing on the stuff that really matters.
Luckily, there is a simple way to make those big tasks more approachable. Using checklists, you can break them down into smaller, more manageable chunks, which you can tackle one at a time. Plus, checking off individual checklist items feels almost as good as hitting that big Complete button. For each checked-off item, your brain rewards you with a small dopamine hit to keep you motivated and craving for more.
Introducing Multiple Checklists
Using checklists is a great way to make big tasks more approachable, but if a checklist gets too long, it, too, can become quite intimidating. To counteract this problem, MeisterTask Pro and Business users can now create multiple, separate checklists within their tasks and give each one a different name. Breaking a long list up into distinct packages will provide you with a better overview of the work that lies ahead and make it easier to split the work among multiple project members.
Saving Checklists for Reuse
In case you’re not aware of this great productivity hack, each individual checklist in your task can be saved for reuse. Why reinvent the wheel every time when you can just load a saved checklist into your new task at the click of a button? Reusing checklists is not just more efficient, it also ensures that important steps in your workflow don’t fall through the cracks.
You can manage all of your saved checklists in your project properties.
While you can already manage your saved checklists in MeisterTask’s mobile apps, multiple checklists will soon also be available for iOS and Android. Stay tuned!
