HOW SAD - I'm looking back over the years and people have been asking ( and in some cases practically begging) for the ability to build an app for a Check List. This is an essential tool for project management. To have the ability to breakdown large accomplishments into smaller tasks. It is a NO BRAINER. All of it is falling on deaf ears which makes me question Podio's management team and whether they are truly listening to the user? Feedback is essential for building a great app.
A checklist can be utilized in hundreds if not thousands of ways to accomplish goals. Whether it's creating steps to accomplish sales or marketing projects. Steps to take to implement a series of small business tasks to reach a larger goal. Or really to slice and dice a large task into smaller manageable 1 and 2-minute steps. In the very popular productivity book Getting Things Done the author highly recommends doing this to get things accomplished quickly and efficiently. As a matter of fact the entire premise of the book is gathering all your outstanding items and then sorting them out by category - then breaking them down into step-by-step mini tasks to get from point A to B. A checklist is the optimal tool to create this flow of tasks.
The project management app TRELLO (which I am also currently reviewing) has a fantastic Checklist tool. I recommend that people reviewing project management tools look at the functionality and ease of use of creating a checklist.
Now, mind you this is not some complex calculation tool that users are asking for. it's simply the ability to create a list and add a simple check off box in front of each item.
I recommend for the user as your analyzing Podio to see whats missing and then dive into the help center to see who is asking for a feature and what the response is. For checklists and check boxes, I'm not seeing any progress and any hopes for the future. Or any valid answers as to why we can't get this done. It's too bad.
