Task Board Templates

Creating Templates can be a really quick way to duplicate Task Boards that require the same actions to be taken - but in a different context - on a regular basis.


For example, if you’re organizing an event you may have one Category named ‘Budget’, another called ‘Transport’, and one more named ‘Guest List’. Within each of these Categories are respective Tasks that need to be carried out each and every time you have an event to organize. So, after attaching files, updating progress, and managing the overall Task Boards, the next time a different event comes up you have to re-create those same Categories and Tasks for another project. With Templates, you have a quick and easy solution to re-create Task Boards that can be used time and time again, without any of the interchangeable details and specifics like status, notes, and attachments.
