Add Checklist Item to Task


beta (in v0.4)


Checklist items are pieces of tasks. They can help define the task or provide reminders of everything that must be done for a task to be considered complete.

In most scheduling tools they are entered as sub-tasks, but they aren't really sub-tasks. They don't need to be scheduled separately. They don't need resource assignments, start dates, or dependencies independent of their parent.

How to Use

  1. Run the Install Checklist Tracking script.
  2. Create a Task/Checklist report.
  3. Select a task.
  4. Run this script. It add a new checklist item to the task.
If you have run the Set Script Shortcuts script, you can use CTRL-3 or Command-3 to run this script.


Need to improve the user interface for this feature. The Edit Menu contains a disabled command Insert Related that will eventually obsolete this script.
