5 Tips For Better Task Lists
  5 Tips For Better Task Lists 

1 - Work with your team 

List out the tasks you can think of, then ask your project team to sit down and brainstorm additional items for the project plan. Undoubtedly, they'll flag some tasks you hadn't considered. At this stage of the game, stay focused on recording everything - either on paper or in your project software - not allocating resources. Get the details down right, then get the team back together later to get the right tasks to the right people.

2 - Add structure to your list 

Once your list is complete, it's time to get organized. If you haven't already, add the tasks to your project software, then start putting them in logical groups. Add some subheadings to make everything easier to navigate, and to keep related tasks together. Building this structure in now will make it easier to find individual tasks later, and streamline task assignments and reporting.

3 - Set your task priorities 

Some tasks will always be a higher priority, so make sure the most important project tasks are easy to find. Use your task management tools to highlight the most important tasks, perhaps by using a different color, making the font bold or adding some stars next to those items. You'll instantly be able to see your priorities for the day.  
 

4 - Store everything in one place 

Scattered task lists make it hard to stay on top of priorities or plans. Count on your project software to keep all your tasks in one centralized location. The task management features in tools like ProjectManager.com make it easy to keep all your tasks in order, and share them with the rest of the team.  

5 - Check off completed tasks 

The best thing about task lists: checking off what's completed. There are few things more satisfying than marking a task complete or ticking off a to-do list checkbox. Even better, when you're using web-based project software, everyone else on the team can celebrate those ticked-off checkboxes with you, in real time!
