The free to-do list template was created as a graphical way of showing your project’s to do list. It will illustrate the activities that you need to do alongside any important milestones that must be accomplished for successful delivery of your project.
The template was created for managing small projects in a simple and more familiar way. Project management applications and other task management tools can become overly complex for small projects. Many of these tools are based on a to-do-list that is displayed in a table or as a spreadsheet which can be difficult to present and not easy for others to understand.
This to-do-list is illustrated on a timeline so you can see the start date and the due-date for each activity on the list. Seeing the activities as a visuals will make it easier to prioritize them. Viewing the due dates of each activity also makes it simple to plan ahead.
This to-do-list templates was designed in PowerPoint so it is simple to edit and customize all the activities of your project. PowerPoint is also familiar to others who require communication or progress reports about your plans, such as team members, management and clients. Creating your project’s to-do-list as a visual instead of a spreadsheet or document can also make it easier to set expectations with others. Deliverables and due dates are clearly illustrated on the template so all stakeholder expectations will be aligned around the timeline.
Download the template and manually replace the to-do-list place holders with your own activities or tasks. If you want to have this done automatically, use the free Office Timeline add-in for PowerPoint which will instantly layout your to-do-list on the slide. The add-in can also be used to quickly update an existing project’s to-do-list if anything has changed or it can be used to instantly re-style this template.
