Why you should use Multiple Checklists?

If you don’t know yet why you should download it, let me show you a few arguments:

  • Better organization of work. Multiple Checklists help in organizing work on a particular task
  • Helpful during refinement. If you are working in Scrum or Agile methodology is a well known to you, you know how important is refinement in every team. That plugin will help organize work in a task into smaller portions and track the progress of each points
  • Clear definition of Done. Definition of Done is a list of requirements that needs to be done to close the task, in other words, to recognize it as ended. Checklist make it clear what needs to be done, what was already did and how much work the issue needs. Clear requirements are an important part of transparency, one of the artefacts in agile methodology.
  • Automatically add checklists to new issues. You can even create your own checklist template and include it while creating a new issue.
  • Track checklist progress on Agile board. You don’t have to check every task to analyse the progress and needed amount of time
